I lost my full time job in 2014 as a SVP Creative Director at a Pharmaceutical Ad Agency in NYC. I was told that my skill-set no longer matched the job description or something that sounded like that. Or maybe my salary could be used to hire 4 millennials….who knows.
Anyway earlier last year I decided that my skill set which is being creative was better spend on doing something completely different. No longer would I fear the next round of layoffs or complain about long hours and impossible clients. I decided to open a Paint and Sip Studio. This is a curious and a relatively new trend that has been sweeping the country. So I decided to hop on and 4 months after opening my shop we are not only breaking even, but are actually generating a small profit… so there is life after Advertising. Stay tuned for updates… LOL
