In 1983 I was asked by a good friend if I wanted to work with him selling imprinted promotional products. At the time I was working in marketing and advertising and planning large marketing events. One of the needs of launching a product is buying advertising specialities and I had to always find someone to them from. I was constantly frustrated that I did know much about this vast industry. Fast forward one month and I fell in love with finding the perfect promotional product that my clients could use to increase their brand awareness. I love this industry and brand building, expressing appreciation or just getting the word out all starts with a promotional product. Many years later and a brain full of information I am so glad I was introduced to this industry. What is really nice, is I own the company and I work because I want to not because I have to.
