Be creative. Watch out for unexpected competition. Lobby for marketing funds when launching a new technology/product and make sure that you spend those funds on the most cutting edged media as opposed to traditional media.
Director of Sales and Marketing in St. Petersburg:
`"$Hispanic Chamber Of Commerce."`
Running a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is what I believe is a "labor of love." Most of all the non-profit organizations depend on the assistance of volunteers and support from companies, as well as, other non-profit organization to collaborate and finance.
I believe that in this case the Hispanic business market is still a lagging force needing leadership and direction.
Unity, in my opinion is one of the greatest hurdles that Hispanic/ Latinos community faces in the United States.
Patience and a desire to see other excel is what I believe we need to work together in order that our children and future generations will benefit for a collaborated effort to work together for a common purpose.
Working with people of multi-cultures and God's blessing on your efforts is what I believe is needed to do this job well.
Don't let money and position be the only reason when you work doing this job.
