Who is Adchick?

After 32+ years as the owner of my ad agency, I finally sold the company.  During my agency tenure, I was a writer, account manager, media planner,  personnel manager, food stylist, bill payer, prop supervisor, art director, floor washer and on-camera talent … usually not all at the same time.  Now, I’m in search of new challenges and adventures. My only requirement is sleeping till at least 7am, followed by a lot of coffee.

    Hello Adchick! Was excited to see my name on your Blogroll. Horray! I’ll totally drink to that.

    Loving your blog.

    If I read correctly, you’ve dipped your toe into healthcare marketing? By day, I creep the halls of Grey (G2 actually), sometimes wandering into pharmaceutical meetings and ranting about Web 2.0 and how everything is wrong.

    Curious to read more on the blog, and maybe find out where Hooterville is.

    Hi Adchick!

    I’m not sure if we’ve ever met but I’m the Chairman & Chief Creative Officer at Euro RSCG Chicago.
    I am also a blogger (godsofadvertising.wordpress.com) and novelist.
    I would like to send you a copy of my new novel, The Happy Soul Industry for a review or criticism.
    It’s a modern fable about God and advertising and I think you’ll enjoy it.
    If you’re interested, please provide your postal address.
    Thank you,

    Hi Ad Chick,

    Just stumbled across your blog and I love it!

    (I’m also a fan of the Dos Equis spots. They are some of the few commercials I actually enjoy watching).

    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    Hi Adchick, I came here via George Parker’s AdScam blog and I’m glad I found you. I like the vibe here and will bookmark and revisit. I’m a twice-published author and I work in web marketing/social networking/affiliates and have been eating up anything I can lately as the whole social thing has gone bonkers.

    Not sure what the success rate is for it though..?

    All the best.
