The Newest Vivanti Addition

As children, we are asked the question: “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I had finally found myself face-to-face with this dilemma, and there was no other way forward than taking it head on. Would I fall flat or would I find success?

I graduated in May with a degree in Public Relations (Hook ‘Em), and as fate would have it, I landed in Dallas: land of the Cowboys, Big Tex, frozen margaritas and heavy traffic. I did what any jobless recent grad would do: apply for what felt like a gazillion jobs due to the fact that I had only a few dollars to my name.

There was one beautiful afternoon I decided to venture out and shop browse. I introduced myself to a woman in one of the stores, and she gave the company name of a marketing firm hiring an entry-level PR/Marketing gal. Ultimately, I interviewed and was offered a position; I took the leap… and found success!

Working for the ladies of Vivanti Group has been a joy, filled with all sorts of fantastic tasks. I’ve planned the Holiday client party; helped finalize the Halloween party for Mockingbird Station; Shopped for Holiday décor for the Station; Worked on press releases and media lists; Even took a trip to the State Fair. This position has allowed for event planning (my favorite!), writing, social media and room to grow with freedom in creativity, as well as a supportive team ready to help me learn. I am not so sure I will ever know what I want to be when I grow up, but this is one fabulous start!

What do you want to be when you grow up? Challenge yourself to be bold, Vivanti-style: you just might find your most successful adventure.
