Today marks 3 years that I left the radio station and started working as a Marketing Manager in Corporate America. 🙄😁 Making the decision to leave the station was one of the most difficult decisions I had to take in my career due to being on air and working in radio was one of my dreams growing up in Mexico but, & I was so happy that I was able to live my dream starting at the age of 19.
I managed to move up, and worked in radio up to 3 years ago. I made the decision to leave so that I could grow, learn more and go on to accomplish another dream.
I remember I used to say I want to build Nationwide campaigns. I want to be a part of something bigger. I don't just want to market or brand and promote one local, or local brands. So I gave it a shot & thankfully I was hired by an awesome person at Greyhound who allowed me to come in and grow the Mexico market in Monterrey and Tamaulipas. Not only that but to assist her in managing all Marketing in the US & Canada.
So yes, today I have billboards not only around the US but, also in Mexico. Haha and how funny is it that as time goes by, the media changes (& so do my goals/dreams). 3 years back it was radio, yesterday it may had been the billboards and TV, today I'm a semi pro at all things digital, streaming, programmatic. Tomorrow let's see what it may be.
See, I didn't grow up dreaming to be a marketer (I wanted to be a superstar 🎼 lol) but, thanks to my dedication and hard work at the station & Kim who believed in my potential I have learned how it is to work in a Corporation, to be always accountable for performance, & most importantly I was able to be there for my baby girls and spend more time with them.
I don't know where life will take me next but, right now I am taking this ride and I know that from here there's no other way to go but, UP! 🧜♀️
