We have the honor of introducing a team member to you. If you work with us, it’s likely Josh will help you at some point, behind the scenes or otherwise. It’s genuinely his nature and also a big part of his role. He shares about himself below.
What’s up?! I’m Josh. I’ve been connected with The Marketing Squad for a while but just recently came on staff.
HERE’S SOME OF MY JOURNEY BEFORE THE SQUAD…
I grew up in good ol’ Northern Kentucky (Florence Y’all!), and went to the University of Kentucky. There, I studied Psychology and graduated in 2017.
Since then I’ve lived in California for a summer working as a white water rafting guide, while continuing to learn html and code on the side. I enrolled in The Software Guild, a 10 month course to CSS, HTMl, and full-stack development in C#.
While I was building my software skill sets, I was also working at Iron Bell Ministries and learning what a great city Louisville is! At that point, I was fortunate enough to start contracting with The Marketing Squad and am now a member of the team!
I’m thankful for the path I’ve been on. It’s led to great adventures including one of my favorite trips to China. I got to lead some camps there and visit the Great Wall. You can see a glimpse of that below.
HERE’S WHAT I DO AROUND THE SQUAD…
I mainly serve our Strategic Partner – Plan Advisors – by helping their brokers adopt various technology to increase or streamline their business. We use the word MarTech to describe my role.
I’ll also assist with their digital marketing. This could include newsletters, blogs, SEO, and website content. I aim to help meet basically any digital needs they may have.
While I’m not wearing my Plan Advisors hat, I also help build out other websites we’re doing at the Squad, optimize them, and jump in wherever I might be able to help!
I ENJOY BEING AT THE SQUAD
Besides the free snacks, I’d say the culture is my favorite part about the Squad. We know how to get things done, but also have a good time while doing so!
Last year, we had a Halloween party with a chili cook-off, costume contest, and low-key dance party, which I’ve learned is an annual tradition. I dressed as Prison Mike. That day was a great example of our team dynamic. We still had a few meetings with clients mixed in throughout the day, but we also celebrated big time together!
I hope to get to know more of our clients and the people in The Squad’s network over time. With that in mind, here are a few other facts about me. I have a yellow lab named Lily who is 9 years old! She’s super sweet, loves hot dogs and people. Chicken Alfredo is my favorite food, hands down. I have a twin brother. We have a go-to karaoke song we sing together. You can find out what that is by clicking below. I’m sure the suspense is killing you!
