Meet Boomer—promotional speaker, co-author and
self marketing manager. He has more titles than hair. Walking through
the office, it is never hard to spot Boomer. He always sports a short-sleeved
Polo shirt with an embroidered logo of the client company he’s
meeting with later that day. The back pockets of his no-wrinkle khaki
Dockers are so full, it is difficult for him to sit comfortably at
a conference table. He never leaves the house without a wallet stuffed
with business cards and a small black comb he uses to try concealing
his bald spot.
Step into Boomer’s office. Many have mistaken it for a Successories store.
Posters, paperweights and pens don sayings about Determination, Journey and Integrity. Boomer often quotes them through a broad, full-toothed smile.
His fixed grin and bubbly enthusiasm leave co-workers wondering if
he was the host they saw on the QVC Home Shopping Network the night
before. He loves to name drop and obsess over job titles. Imagine giving
a summer intern a 10-word title!
He loves to let people know he’s read the latest and greatest savvy business books and doesn’t preset his radio because he’s too busy listening to motivational cassette tapes.
