Ivy Heffernan

My name is Ivy Heffernan, and I am interested in a wide range of professions. Economics and politics at the age of 17 is easy when your father has a Ph.D in economics, i have been taught to put together technical analyst and stay up to date with the changing markets as well as what is happening in the political world. Marketing: This one comes as quite a surprise. As I never really knew my true potential for it. It began when I offered to help someone once with their seo, marketing and Web design for free. I'm only 16 so I knew no one would pay me for something I 'claimed' to be good at. Although thanks to analytic reports, it showed that from the seo I was doing the website got more than double its daily views. On top of that the owner was more than happy with the Web design and for marketing. Well for someone who only started a month ago, getting 10+ people a week I'd say is pretty good. Summary: I think being a well rounded individual on all topics is the most important thing to everyone, with the changing economies it's good to know that no matter what life throws at you, and no matter what job you are given, you'll always be capable.
