Gini Dietrich

Introducing Megan Beausang!

By: Gini Dietrich | December 2, 2010 | 

As promised, I have a little treat for you! Rather than listen to me all congested and sniffling up a storm, you get to hear our new chief financial officer, Megan Beausang, talk about what it’s like to work here and what she plans to do to help us achieve Global Domination.  Plus, you can’t tell by looking at her, but she has a little surprise to share at the end!

For those of you who started businesses because you really love what you do or your career is in PR or marketing, you’ll understand when I say it’s such a relief having a financial mind on our team!  Now I can focus on what I do best and leave the number crunching to Megan!

So, here she is answering, “What do you plan to do in your first six months?” and “What is it really like to work here?”

If you’re reading this in your Reader and you don’t want to miss the video (and you know you don’t!), click here and it’ll magically appear!

    That was really fun. Grats on the new expected Baby Megan. Plus now that I comment so much on this blog I hope you can figure out how to monetize all my page views and participation into increased ROI but with a branding and engagement bent that helps get the Spin Sucks message into a more viral channel trajectory via Transmedia without losing the essence and story of what Spin Sucks is all about.

    Simply put rent a Billboard in the LOOP and put my mug on it and say ‘This Alien Reads Spinsucks’. That should get you at least a 5% increase in readership and maybe a loss of only one Arment Dietrich client but well worth the investment. Remember its about the ROI and negative NPV and IRR.

    @HowieSPM I just put all of the above on my to-do list. Thanks Howie!

    @meganbeausang This is what happens when us finance folks invade the realm of Marketing and PR. Everyone runs scared. We are like Cod Liver oil. But its for their own good!

    Megan. Make sure Gini gives you that check for your positive comments on that segment. BTW, Gini has given you permission to tell me in advance what Project Jack Bauer is. Call me!

    Megan…welcome! You did a great job and deserve the holiday bonus!
    Gini – FAB nail color. Love it. (and psst…you still need work at accepting compliments.)

  7. HowieSPM says:

    @Kenwork57 Gini is cloning Jack Bauer into an army. She plans to take over the world.

  8. ginidietrich says:

    @jeanniecw OMG! It’s the OPI “no chip” manicure. I’ve had it for two weeks and it made it through Thanksgiving and cooking a ton of meals! I’m really, really pleased. And you’re right…I was totally embarrassed. 🙂

  9. ginidietrich says:

    @HowieSPM @Kenwork57 See Ken! Now you know.

  10. ginidietrich says:

    @sydcon_mktg I CANNOT WAIT!! I’m going to have him going to Starbucks by the time he is two!

  11. JMattHicks says:

    Welcome Megan, you’re working with a pretty cool lady! Good luck with your work and learning the new industry. Great addition, @ginidietrich !

  12. sydcon_mktg says:

    @ginidietrich It’s a great idea to have him on hockey skates by that time too!!! 🙂

  13. meganbeausang says:

    @sydcon_mktg @ginidietrich Maybe we can teach him to skate to Starbucks?!?! (This is Chicago, anything can happen)…Thank you. I agree, I think Gini is just as excited for the little guy to get here as I am, maybe even a little more. 🙂

  14. meganbeausang says:

    @ginidietrich @jeanniecw First, and most important, let me tell you the video did not do Gini’s nails justice. I am running out to get my ‘no chip’ done this weekend. Second, THANK YOU! I cannot believe how lucky I am!

  15. sydcon_mktg says:

    @meganbeausang @ginidietrich Sure skate to Starbucks with a toddler size Blackhawks jersey on to boot!! @ginidietrich you do know they sell the cutest little Blackhawk jersey’s for babies right??

  16. HowieSPM says:

    @sydcon_mktg @meganbeausang @ginidietrich I dunno I heard the NY Islander Jerseys are way cute on kids. LA Kings just as cute.

  17. sydcon_mktg says:

    @HowieSPM @meganbeausang @ginidietrich But those Islanders & Kings jerseys are missing one very important feature….the Stanley Cup Champion patch! 🙂

  18. HowieSPM says:

    @sydcon_mktg @meganbeausang @ginidietrich Well I mean…uhm….well….its just a patch right? Unless Gini’s name is on the cup what is a silly old patch anyway. Kind of takes up space doesn’t it?

  19. ginidietrich says:

    @jmatthicks Alright. You can have your Power Rangers back.

  20. meganbeausang says:

    @HowieSPM I have never thought of myself as Cod Liver Oil…but give me six months, I’m sure that will change.
