Greetings and welcome to my blog!
I did not grow up in a Christian home. I accepted Christ as the Lord of my life on November 4, 2011, when I was 20 years-old. Ever since I became a Christian, I have wanted to be a Pastor. My duty as a Christian is to love the people that God has brought into my life. I hope to someday be a bi-vocational Pastor with one foot in the ministry and one foot in the corporate world.
I’ve lived in Minnesota for my entire life and within the last five years moved to Minneapolis from the suburbs. I love the cities and if I could live anywhere in the world it would be in a trendy condo in Uptown overlooking Lake Calhoun. I also love business (literally, everything about business) and I would love to work at a creative/advertising agency or a consulting firm once I complete school. One of the reasons that I am drawn to marketing is because I feel like I am hard-wired for it. Marketing, as an academic field, is a blend of business and communication. Like I said before, I love everything about the field of business. Communication, interestingly, is one of my top five values. A saying of mine is, “You can’t communicate with me too much”. So, I naturally feel comfortable while exercising my marketing muscles. I was born to be in marketing.
About My Future:
Like I said, I would love to Pastor in some capacity. A Lead Pastor of a smaller church or a Youth Pastor would be ideal. As for business, I would love to start my own small business or work in a creative capacity in the corporate world.
What I Anticipate From The Class:
In BUS 265, I hope to develop and sharpen my marketing skills and experience. I am incredibly excited to work on the large marketing project that comprises this class as well. While I am excited and eager to develop my skills, I mainly want to win the marketing competition and show the alternative marketing class that my team is a group of competent and capable marketers. I strive to be the best in my field and I don’t particularly like losing. That being said, I hope this class is highly competitive but educational and fun as well.
