I’m a very lucky person. At the end of summer I will be traveling to New York to work with Seth Godin on a 3 month internship. It’s a big deal for me. Seth Godin and his great contemporaries are changing how we think about marketing (it’s not just a department).
When you read Seth’s blog you learn what text books don’t teach you. You learn the stuff that matters. You discover how to be better at the process of marketing, and how to improve every interaction. His work on telling authentic stories should be required reading for every marketer.
Now I think of marketing as a powerful tool to help consumers and fix problems, it’s inspirational. I’m excited to work with someone who continues to shape my opinion of marketing. More than that, I can’t wait to contribute. I can’t wait to become a better marketer.
Thanks Seth for having me, and everyone else that has helped me in recent months.
If anyone knows or can help me find somewhere to stay in New York, I will be extremely grateful.
(any tips on telling my girlfriend will be even more appreciated!)
