Carlos was raised in a community where only a lucky few used their minds for a living. Most people used their backs or hands. His skill on the basketball court paid for college, but his fascination with economics and business led him to make more slam dunks off court than on, and his stats now include decades of retail, advertising, and marketing success.
Carlos says, “My job is making your media campaign succeed. It’s a bigger thrill with more adrenaline and sweat than winning a championship game. Winning for others fires me up. I’m a research pit-bull. I don’t turn loose until I understand. The head of the Economics Department at Florida A&M University told me a degree in Economics “won’t keep you out of the bread line, but at least you’ll know why you are there.” These days I think a large part of success is understanding why things happen the way they do and moving fast enough to be strategically well ahead of what’s coming.”
