My favorite birthday present last year, was being able to accept my new position at Tire Business.
I remember getting my birthday pedicure and telling Crain Communications Inc.'s HR department that I would gladly take on the role of reporting about tires!
Then I realized I knew next to nothing about tires. All the research in the world could not have prepared me for the enlightening, eye-opening year that was ahead of me. There are so many facets to the industry and I can honestly say I still learn something new every day.
