A “Little Mark” on The Microsoft Dynamics Community

Nicole Helm

By Nicole Helm, Rockton Software

When Bethany asked those in The Genius Series to write this essay, I had such a hard time to think about how to write about my journey as a marketer. I’d like to say I knew I wanted to have a career in marketing when I was in college, but that wasn’t the case. I was going to school to be a teacher, thinking I wanted to teach English as a second language.

Then, when I graduated, I was 20 years old, and Rockton Software hired me to solely do their social media. I’ve morphed into managing the majority of the marketing here. It’s been a whirlwind of learning. I can still say I’m learning to this day, every day, and even more this year, thanks to The Genius Series.
