Dear Me, On My First Day of Advertising #30: Mike Sukle
Dear Younger Me,
Congratulations on getting your first job in advertising.
Believe me, I know exactly how you feel. Part on top of the world, part scared to death.
I’m here to tell you it’s going to be great.
We’ll have more good days than bad.
We’re going to meet some of our best friends ever.
And it turns out that we have a pretty good knack for this sort of thing.
We even have our own agency now.
But you’ll have no idea how fast time is going to fly by. Don’t waste it.
Spend as much time as you can with your boys. (Yeah, you actually did get a date.)
And don’t ever forget, how lucky you are.
We get to sit around all day, tell bad jokes and make cool stuff. And, get paid for it.
But that’s just a small part of all the amazing things that are going to happen.
America is going to elect a black man President.
People will be able to buy pot in stores.
And the Broncos are actually going to win a Super Bowl. Or two.
Like I said, it’s all good.
There's only one thing that could make it better.
So I’m going to give you three magic words.
Google, Yahoo. Twitter.
They may sound like gibberish, but they’re your ticket out, the only things that will save you from having to write a Dear Me Letter for the Denver Egotist.
I know, who?
Don't blow it.
