Quought for the day #44 – Drew McLellan

Drew McLellan has not only survived 20 years in the advertising and marketing arena, he’s thrived in it.  After working for several other agencies, including Young and Rubicam’s CMF&Z, Drew created McLellan Marketing Group in 1995. At MMG, strategy and passion collide as they bring their unique style and practical smarts to life for their clients small and large.  Drew and his talented band of co-workers have developed a proprietary branding process that has helped propel their clients to the top of their game.

Considered a national expert in branding for both for profit companies and the non-profit world, Drew is highly sought after speaker and has given about a zillion presentations at national conferences, key note addresses, training for his peers in the profession, college students and even his daughter’s eighth grade class.

Drew’s Quought for the day:

If, on the day of your funeral someone were to walk up to the podium and speak a single word or phrase that captured the essence of your life — what would you want that word or phrase to be and what are you doing today and every day to earn it?

Drew’s note accompanying the Quought:
We all get so caught up in being busy and doing things that just aren’t going to matter.  And we spend far too little time actively creating our legacy.  A legacy is not built on a single act or a day’s heroics.  It is built (or not) out of our daily choices, actions and words.  Which of course…leads to my question.
