Spring brings with it new beginnings. Yeah…we NEED new beginnings in so many ways. NICK SANABRIA, a Well Dunne! Talent, brought forth the idea that we are all experiencing so much that we can’t process it and it’s driving us mad. I mean, who isn’t experiencing pressures and unsureness…who knows what the future honestly holds and who to trust…all around, we see businesses collapse along with projects and jobs evaporating. We are swamped.
That said, let’s turn out sights to happy things. Back to new beginnings. RANDY FOULDS is trading his Tampa Bay address for one in La Quinta, CA. It’s a homecoming of sorts – his first job as a promo writer producer was at KESQ. He’s been in the promo world for 22 years at such locales as Tucson and New Orleans. Now, he’ll be entering the family insurance business and, of course, bringing his own creative twist to it by adding insuring race cars and high-end collector autos. Cool! He’s keeping his hand in the ad biz by working with two agencies and putting together a project with some other creative types. Stay in touch, Randy and Well Dunne! BTW, he has this advice: “Mentor those you can with patience and humor. The next generation of media needs our experience. And, for the next generation, choose your own mentors carefully; they can kill your career as easily as they can help you. Never stop learning and honing your talents. And, after 22 years, you will have the right to say been there, done that.”
A sad note. Many of you know former GM IRWIN STARR. His significant other, Ms CHARLES ANN VALENTINE lost her valiant battle against brain cancer. The folks on Siesta Key, FL are going to hold a butterfuly relea
se in her name. So when you see a butterfly, think of the wondrous Charlie. She would love that.
Anybody get the Fine Living Network newsletter? It’s great and thank heavens this issue has 40 recipes for martinis!
