As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
"When I was a kid I was terrified of dying. I remember a conversation I had with my mom, telling her I was going to be a hairstylist when I grew up. I told her I originally wanted to be a lawyer - but a client might get mad and kill me, so I wanted to enter the safe world of hair. I obviously didn’t understand back then what could happen if you messed up a woman’s hair! As I grew up I realized I didn’t have a choice but to be a marketer since my last name is Brand."
What made you want to become an entrepreneur?
"I’ve always been the one in the group that wanted to start things and be the boss. I started a band and was a singer (although I’m tone deaf), set up a library in my closet at home and let my sisters check out books so I could charge them late fees, and used to go door-to-door looking for work to help older people in my neighborhood. I guess I’ve just always wanted to call the shots for myself and be in control of my own destiny."
What do you like most about working with MINDSCAPE?
"The opportunity to come to work every day with some of the smartest, most passionate people I know. I am excited when I wake up and a little disappointed as each day ends. I love our team!"
While working, what makes you smile the most?
"It’s a three-way tie:
- Reviewing client results.
- Listening to the latest 'Simon-ism'.
- Gas pains."
What do you do for fun?
"I enjoy uncovering new places and experiencing new things with my family. I love testing their endurance as we attempt to conquer my never-ending list of “Things to Do and See.” They are all troopers and don’t say bad things about me...when I am around at least!"
