1091. The Best Investment You Can Make Is in Yourself
“While I have always been entrepreneurial, I had no intention at all of going into the family business and there was no pressure to do so. After graduating from the University of Scranton with a degree in marketing, I worked for two different companies in New York City for a couple of years as a list management broker. When my middle brother graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology and joined the family business and I saw how he enjoyed working with my dad and uncle, I began to realize that joining Ballantine might be a smart path for me. They’d never had a marketing person in house and both agreed my expertise could take the company to the next level. That was in 2003 and it’s been an amazing journey.”
