Ned C. Clausen’s launched his career in advertising at age twenty from the mailroom of the legendary Madison Avenue agency, J. Walter Thompson.

From those humble beginnings, he won a variety of roles at New York ad agencies and trade organizations, landing a front-row seat in an industry that has undergone a series of dynamic—and sometimes dramatic changes—over the last several decades.

In this memoir, he recalls his experiences, which were primarily in the business-to-business sector. Along the way, he shares insights on:
• discovering your passion in life;
• starting from the bottom and working your way up; and
• managing a client’s marketing communications.

With the exception of serving three years in the U.S. Army during the 1960s, Clausen spent fifty-four years in the advertising industry, rubbing elbows with some of the most fascinating people in the world of business.

His story is one of good fortune and having the wits to survive and thrive from the creative revolution of the 1960s, through the agency mega-merger of the 1980s, to the digital revolution of today.
