What’s In Your Wallet, Danielle?

Have you looked at your business card recently? If not you should. MKTG INC’s cards are known for their unique perspective and purpose (the latter being expressly to embarrass their bearer, natch). This column takes a look at the business cards of our coworkers and hears the stories behind them. Here’s the story behind the business card of  Danielle Stefanuk, Senior Account Executive, in MKTG INC’s New York City office.

It’s always the quiet ones.
I may seem quiet at first but once you get to know me, I’m anything but quiet! Don’t let my soft-spoken voice fool you.

For example, to resist eating a sugary snack one fateful afternoon, the demure darling you see in front of you once sprayed a fistful of jellybeans with Windex.
This is, embarrassingly, a true statement. Even more embarrassing than the act itself is how I got the idea. My roommate and I were watching an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians (guilty pleasure) and in the episode; Kim received a bunch of cupcakes. She didn’t want to eat them all so she sprayed them with Windex. While I typically would never emulate the actions of the Kardashians, I just as equally did not want to eat my entire bag of jellybeans. So I sprayed them!

When asked why, her response was simple: “Well, would you eat something sprayed with Windex?”
There are not many people that would actually eat something after it has been sprayed with Windex…except for maybe the father in the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding (am I right?).

This kind of clear-sighted practicality paired with fervent passion is one reason clients love Danielle. Or maybe it’s because she’s always giving them jellybeans.
It’s definitely the former. I am certain of this because I no longer buy Jellybeans in an effort to save my bottles of Windex for cleaning purposes only.
