Theresa Addison Account Executive

I love magazine sales because I get to help clients in East Contra Costa market their business within the reputable 110 Magazine! I'm thriving on the new opportunities and overcoming challenges that many managers and owners face in growing their business. It is especially rewarding to do business with people and later to see how grateful they are for our services and the results they get from ads and articles. Their happiness is better than my paycheck (almost). I'm not just selling advertising, I am assisting businesses in getting exposure; helping people to be better; to do better; to be more successful.
