A quick word about “Clients”
I’ve learned more from my clients than I ever learned in a classroom. I consider my internship during graduate school my very first “client.” I was hired the summer of 1991, at a very modest rate, to create an intra-company newspaper. I barely knew how to type on a computer (ha! they didn’t know that!) but by the time I bid my sad “goodbyes” I knew how to solicit content, edit, layout, design a publication and go to press. I really can’t thank those first business mentors and coworkers enough. My business “Foundational Beliefs” were formed right then and there. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to market: nuclear remediation, polymer scrubs, colleges, restaurants, banks… and lots of things in between. East Tennesseans are truly good people. I’ve felt supported, been treated kindly and truly treasure the friendships that have accumulated over the years with so many of my clients.
