Who is your ideal client?

POSITION
Consultant/Coach

headshot blonde woman black background

WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT? 
Organizations/Individuals that want to improve their results

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
I have been in the education field for 25 years as both a teacher and an administrator. During this time I observed organizations that adopted and implemented research based practices and materials with often minimal results. I wondered and contemplated why some organizations were successful and others were not.  

I conducted a research study which resulted in the identification of key factors that successful organizations and individuals use on a daily basis. I have developed a model, which is the basis of my upcoming book, Environments of Success. I work with organizations and individuals to implement these Environments  so they can meet and exceed any goal they set.  

WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR JOB? 
People often think that a consultant brings in a set "toolbox" of  resources and materials that is used with every client. In reality, I cater my services to the needs of the client by using a variety of different tools and techniques depending upon the needs, goals, and desired outcomes of the client. I also continually learn and develop new resources that benefits the organizations I work with.

NAME ONE THING YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR JOB? 
I wish people knew that I am 100% committed to their success. When I partner with them to achieve their goals, I wish they knew and believed that success will occur if they implement the key principles in Environments of Success. 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB? 
I love helping other people attain their dreams and goals. Nothing is more satisfying to see the excitement of clients when what they didn't think was possible actually became a reality.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN YOUR INDUSTRY? 
If you are passionate about what you want to do, don't give up. Keep believing and taking action steps and your dreams will become a reality.

WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK YOU THINK I SHOULD READ RIGHT NOW? 
The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins. Great book about pushing yourself to do the things you don't "feel" like doing.

WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
Large commercial window film distributors and installers

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
I started working in the glass and glazing related industry when I began working at an automatic door manufacturer 13 years ago.  We manufactured and sold aluminum framed, glass glazed door systems and door operators through distributors, glazing contractors, GC's and the architectural community throughout North America.   

We started Dynamic Glass Products, LLC so we could market and sell underutilized glass and film technologies into markets that are looking for on-demand privacy, increased building thermal efficiency and improved hygienic medical patient spaces.

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
I believe many people THINK that LC switchable privacy glass / film is technical, complicated, and unusual. 

NAME ONE THING THAT YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABUOT YOUR BUSINESS?
A challenge for us is to change the perception of this product from technical, complicated and unusual...to simple, normal, common and as easy as turning on and off a light switch (which it is).

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
The constant exploration of new connections and opportunities.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN YOUR INDUSTRY?
Always meet with and talk to people who know a lot more than you do.

WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK THAT YOU THINK I SHOULD READ RIGHT NOW?
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Local Business Spotlight | Ann Rakowiecki

NAME
Ann Rakowiecki

COMPANY
MKE MKTG CO

POSITION
Founder

AnnRakowiecki-022718-02-web.jpg

Who is your ideal client?
A small business owner that is looking to grow, take the next step, do things a little differently than they have been.

How did you get started in your field of work?
Honestly, I fell into marketing and promotions as a whole.  I was either going to be a radio DJ or a rock star.  I figured out that my voice wasn't suited for the radio and that my guitar playing wasn't anywhere near as good as Eddie Van Halen's.  I went back to school for an MBA (no small feat for a communications major) and through a series of right, wrong, planned and unplanned turns I landed where I am today.

What is something people THINK they know about your job?
I heard someone say about marketing folks, "Some people spend the money and some people make the money."  

Name one thing you WISH people knew about your job?
Marketing is not necessarily a sunk cost like a piece of equipment.  Labor hours themselves are not themselves the be all and end all to crafting and executing marketing.  Marketers need tools to get their jobs done well, effectively and efficiently.  

What do you love most about your job?
By far it's meeting people who are making things happen and running their show. I've met a number of creative people. Creativity shows itself in a number of ways. I also love that they take thoughtful risks.

What advice would you give to someone starting out in your industry?
Specialization is seems to be the only way to fly these days in marketing, I'd encourage young professionals to get comfortable with different facets of marketing. As small businesses grow, they'll look for someone who has a broad skill set.

What is the ONE book that you think I should read RIGHT NOW?
I'm not big on self-improvement or motivational books. I prefer to read biographies and autobiographies. It's always interesting to read real stories, even if I don't always agree with the interpretation.
