Turning Passions into Professions. . .

I'm a week or so away from launching a new company, Creative Career Management and I'm truly so excited.

When I started as a creative manager I had been working my whole career in print production, so needless to say I didn't really know what I was doing. Fake it 'til you make it as the saying goes.

Through trial and error, lots of advice and counsel from others and generally just figuring things out, here I am years later as a creative manager and recruiter. Now it's time to take things one step further. My favorite part of recruiting is meeting students and juniors. Just love em. I've said before they have a freshness about them that's contagious.

I'm taking my passion for coaching and mentoring juniors and turning it into something bigger. My company, Creative Career Management is a college consultancy specifically for creatively talented students. We all know how hard it was deciding which colleges to apply to, and it's ten times harder when creative talent is involved.

I hope to share my knowledge about schools and ad/design programs, quality of graduate portfolios, differences in campuses and tuition and really help high school and early college students make better decisions.

Passions into professions, isn't that what it's all about?!

How exciting. It sounds like a great idea and one that I could have certainly benefited from. Best of luck and congrats on making it happen.
