Sample text

I had always gotten a really nice offer after eighteen months from all these different places. I was given a contract at one of the last places that said that I had to give them three months’ notice. I was getting married at the time. I didn’t know where I was going to go, but I figured I had some time to find something. So I told them that I was leaving in three months. There was this very talented, very beautiful writer in town, and the people who ran the office wanted to hire her right away, and so I ended up with three months’ pay and I didn’t have to go to work.

It was probably nineteen years ago. I was actually the copywriter on the spot. It was about a father giving his son a driving lesson. I was giving my son driving lessons. My son had knocked over some trash cans during his lessons. So in the spot, we had a kid knocking over some mailboxes. The story was simply about fathers and sons, first-time driving lessons, and comfortable blue jeans. That spot always has a big place in my heart. Tuten: Do you get to work on client work as much as you want to?

I need to meet people and work on lots of different kinds of business. I work with some clients that I have been fortunate to work with again. I have never felt the need to see my name on the door. This is probably an irrational fear, but I also have it stuck in my head that to run a place means I have to settle down and stand still. Maybe it’s because my role models—Joe Grimaldi, John Adams, and Mike Hughes—have all worked at their agencies for thirty-plus years. My desire for freedom is greater than my desire for power.
