In my youth, a former coworker once told me, “I’d never date anyone who works in marketing.”
When I inquired about his reasoning, he replied:
“It’s just so sleazy. Choosing that line of work says a lot about a person.”
Since I was young and impressionable, that sentiment stayed with me. So I was naturally conflicted years later when I wanted to make a living as a writer and discovered copywriting and content marketing.
