Why I Work in Broadcast Media Arts

Posted on Tue, Apr 23, 2013

By Chris Phelps When my career in media started I found myself not getting exactly what I wanted out of it. I was working in sales and I hadn’t found much success and that was leading me to ask the question, “Why am I doing this?” There was NEVER a point during my education at Specs where I said, “You know what, I want to work in sales.” I often felt like I wasn’t appreciative of the opportunities afforded to me, but really, I didn’t care. Honestly, I was chasing someone else’s career. The hard part is, that sales career was quite nice. I have some really good friends who have amazing careers in sales. But it never made me happy. I never felt CONFIDENT. And it killed my motivation.
