Say Hello To Max In Marketing

Share

We’ll keep this intro brief because the person writing it is also the person being interviewed.

Are we blowing your mind?

My name is Max Glassburg, and I work on this blog! I asked someone else to come up with the questions, since that’s usually my job. Enjoy.

Say hello to Max Glassburg in marketing

What is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to you?

Being alive is the luckiest thing that’s ever happened to me, since those odds are 1 in 10 2,685,000. So says the internet.

But to be a little less dramatic about it, it was also very lucky that I moved to a city where I could meet my girlfriend and truly begin living the life I wanted to live. I’m not going to look up what the odds of that happening are, but she makes me feel lucky every day.

Which one activity, if made into an Olympic sport, would give you the best chance at winning a medal?

Overthinking. Overthinking works! Works for me, anyway. I think.

What dumb accomplishment are you most proud of?

I taught my dog, Leo, to sit pretty to the command of “Dracarys.” It’s a thing.

What did you do for work prior to working at Yardi?

The details of my life are quite inconsequential. I was a creative content writer in the marketing department of an automotive service equipment supplier. I’ve had several other writing jobs and was a middle school English teacher before working as a writer.

What do you like most about writing for The Breezeway?

I get to apply everything I know about blog writing in a new way for every post. I enjoy the privilege and responsibility of ensuring our content standards are met. I constantly push myself to evolve, and likewise, the people and culture here push me along at a great pace. It’s a fun job.

If you had a boat, what would you name it?

The S.S. Puppies. That’s an inside joke. And it’s not funny.

If given a free, 30-second ad spot during the Super Bowl, what would you say/do?

I’d get Larry David to do a simple reading from his home office:

“Anyone who watches the Super Bowl for the ads, knowing that they’re all posted ahead of time on the internet, is, well, really weird, to be frank. And one more thing. What’s eehhh, what’s with the complaining about the commercials? Do you need to see a soda ad to feel better about your life? Just stop, okay? Watch the game and, eehhh, mute the rest.”

Which movie would you rather re-live: Groundhog Day or Yesterday?  

I had to look up the plot of Yesterday. I’m really glad I did because I now I don’t have to watch it. KIDDING.

But seriously. Groundhog Day.

Editor’s note: Yesterday was Max’s birthday, and everyone on the Breeze team hopes he had a phenomenal day. The Bears won, so he probably did. (And no, Max did not write this note himself.)
