Drive Connections by Aligning Your Mission, Values and Goals
FreeFall’s Julie Bonner was interviewed on the SuccessLab Podcast by Beth Cochran. She is the marketing director at FreeFall Aerospace, a Tucson-based startup developing intelligent orbital and terrestrial antenna systems (or as this recent article in Wired Magazine referred to them, inflatable satellites).
“In this episode of The SuccessLab Podcast, we talk to Julie Bonner about how she broke into Arizona’s thriving aerospace sector, how impactful connections have shaped her career journey, why getting involved in industry associations is key to securing new business as a marketers and designer, and the reason to always follow-up when networking (and not take it personally if someone doesn’t respond).”
“I believe in lining up with the right organizations. When you find the right ones, you’re aligning your values, your mission and your common goals, while building connections at the same time. For FreeFall, I’ve really become involved with Arizona Technology Council. We’re all supporting technology businesses thriving here in Arizona, and through that, we’ve built some really good partnerships. There’s a lot of ways we can help each other and also build up Arizona together.”
