Residing in the US, Misti graduated form ICA in 2013. She also worked in marketing and advertising for fifteen years. She served everyone from large corporations to small businesses and entrepreneurs. While she loved her work, she knew her true calling, the reason she was put on this plant was to help entrepreneurs chase their dreams and share their talents with the world without all the struggle and difficulty.
“I really did not like the idea of choosing one career,” says Misti. “That seemed so limiting. All of these careers work together so that I provide the most dynamic solutions for my clients and fellow artists and entrepreneurs – and still be an artist myself!”
An active blogger and podcaster, actor and former marketer, Misti Patrella empowers the Awesome in Passion-Driven Entrepreneurs.
