I had no intention of being a tech dork…
I worked in the mortgage industry straight out of high school (No College). Selling loans was ‘my thing’. Until everything changed when the market crashed.
I decided to pursued a career with Northwestern Mutual as a financial advisor while being a sales director for Paysafe.
After time, I decided to move to Mendocino to work for Brutocao Cellars, a winery, as their director of marketing. A year later, my house got infested with endangered bats & I knew it was time to come back to San Diego.
When I got back I landed a gig with Sony where I experienced the power behind marketing. Needless to say, I was addicted!
I self-taught myself how to code websites by watching YouTube. Then built myself over hundreds of websites within the year. Once I felt liked had enough experience in building websites, I started hunting for clients.
I created a script for Craigslist to send multiple email bids against myself to improve odds of winning the job. I continued learning by outsourcing work & making freelancers share their screen. This continued until I landed a large contract with NoteVault who generously paid for me to go to google courses & advance my PPC knowledge. Upon completion of building their website, I became an employee & built the marketing team.
A few years later, a car accident put me on disability. The challenge of not being able to work sparked creativity & desire to make a positive impact for entrepreneurs like myself. I started my own digital agency & shortly after became a Badged Google Partner. I created my remarking software “Follow Per Click” while I single handedly managed over $1million ad spend per year.
Recently, I was offered an executive role at Refinance.com. We are building a platform that uses a combination of artificial intelligence & human expertise to assist consumers in securing all types of loans.
