Fill in the blank: I am a woman, a marketer and ___________.
"...a legacy builder.
To break things down, first as a woman, it’s the same for all of us — we are daughters, we are wives, we are sisters, we are friends, we are also mums. There are many roles we play.
Next, I think I’m one of the very few people who actually practice the course that they took in college. Mine was Asian Studies and Marketing and I ended up in a regional marketing role. And I can even say that Marketing is my first love. At the end of the day, I believe that no matter what product you’re trying to market, you’re also marketing yourself and your skills and the impression you leave in the world. Which leads me to be a legacy builder.
No matter which company you’re in, I think we all wonder what, once we’re gone, would we leave in order to make the world a better place?"
