She was fascinated by the strong business climate on
the west coast and soon started as a sales associate in a clothing boutique

She found that was a perfect place for beginners to be

She made and carried out promotion plans; participated in
merchandise ordering, buying, and stocking; built up and maintained customer databases by using QuickBooks; trained new employees and assisted in managing the sales team


She took college classes in Economics, Marketing, Statistics
etc. to better understand the world outside of sales

She was delighted to find that her sales background would
be helpful in a marketing era where the role of consumers and the importance of interactive communication had been focused on…

As Marketing is being challenged by

Media Clutter Market Fragmentation Technology Innovation Touchpoints Interaction
Then it means

Everybody within a company is, could, and should be a marketer

The Marketing Universe





Product Price Place Promotion Consumer

Experience Exchange Everyplace Evangelism

A gradual integration process in mind and practice

That is why she is now an M.A. candidate in
