You’ll Learn: 

  • How Dorie went from running a non-profit to becoming a professional digital marketer.
  • The challenge Dorie faced with working with clients with dated mindset and old expectations
  • How Dorie gained a grater appreciation for the business world as her career developed.
  • The system of academia was set up to transmit knowledge over time and isn’t well suited for learning trends in real time in most cases.
  • The content creation process Dorie used to connect with industry thought leaders.


3 Key Points: 

  1. There’s a disjoint in client expectations. Marketing has changed more in the last two years than in the preceding fifty, but most people’s mindsets haven’t caught up.
  2. O.M.O. (fear of missing out) causes marketers to suffer from “ooh shinny” syndrome at the expense of business fundamentals.
  3. People have a civic responsibility to check where their information comes forms.
