Joe Johnson on Making Choices, Taking Leaps and Getting After Life

joe johnson salomon marketing

Joe Johnson went from marketing/PR coordinator at the Spokane Convention and Visitors Bureau to Salomon's outdoor marketing manager in the Americas in a span of seven years. He went from driving his car until it had no gas and staying there until he got his next job, to traveling around North America for a very cool job (and lifestyle) with Salomon. 

We know the shortest distance between two points is a straight line and Joe took anything but a straight line to get from A to B. Today he'll share the stories, the risks, and the hard work that went into making choices and putting talk into action. It’s a story of survival on free breakfast burritos, taking risks, and dedicating oneself to good work and good relationships. 

Also discussed: 

  • How to do work you love but not let it keep you from doing other things you love. 

Listen up, then go out, do what you want to do, make connections and be memorable.
