MASSolutions recently noted the 13th anniversary of our integrated marketing firm and the second year of the “No BS Marketing Show” podcast during a Hollywood-themed event that included a red-carpet entrance and a “Walk of Fame” for many of our clients.
Why celebrate our 13th anniversary?
The No. 13 has been a lucky one in our family for generations.
My grandfather, my father, my three sons and I have all worn the No. 13 in various sports and enjoyed that experience.
The No. 13 is near and dear to me as a lucky number.
And, because MASSolutions is a No BS Marketing firm, and a little bit different, we figured, “Why not have the anniversary not be the 10th or 15th but instead tie it to something special?”
We marked the milestone on Aug. 24 at the Wyndham Grand Hotel adjacent to our offices at the Gateway Towers. We love this part of Downtown Pittsburgh and wanted to celebrate there with approximately 40 clients and most of the 63 guests who have appeared on more than 180 podcasts.
With our office in the JARI Center for Business Development in Richland Township, MASSolutions also has ties to my hometown of Johnstown. Our clients from the Flood City and Cambria County participated in the celebration 70 miles West of Johnstown.
Over these past 13 years, I’ve often discussed personal and professional growth and believe in assisting others as they strive to reach new goals.
The “No BS Marketing Show” is an important tool in this regard because it focuses on leadership and communication.
I chose early on to make it a guest-based podcast featuring business leaders who have incredible stories.
We wanted a show that enabled the listener to hear those stories from people they could relate to and say, “They’re like me. They’re like people in my community.”
Extremely talented people have been guests on the podcast, but we’re not looking for celebrities and we’re not looking for the internationally known.
We talk to people who tell their story in a conversational manner that the audience could relate to.
Many guests have told us that they had a rare opportunity to talk in depth about their journey, their career path.
MASSolutions celebrated its own journey during this exciting, yet humbling time. We shared the night with clients who have become part of the family. Indeed, 13 is our lucky number.
