SIPA Member Profile: Phipps Finds Niche for ‘Success’

Jennie Phipps, Editor & Publisher, Freelance Success, Farmington Hills, Mich.

What was your first job out of college and how did you get into this business?
I was hired by WBNS-TV, the Columbus CBS affiliate, after talking to the recruiter when he came to the Ohio State J School. I worked there for about five months, and I despised it—I was young, stupid and impatient and none of what I was getting to do seemed at all exciting. They wanted to put me in a division called “cable,” and I thought “what a stupid idea that is.” My adviser at OSU got a call from the city editor at the Fort Lauderdale News (now late-lamented) and its sister paper, the Sun Sentinel. He needed a general assignment reporter. My adviser referred him to me, and the city editor hired me sight unseen—things were different then. I threw everything I owned in the used Mustang my father had given me as a graduation present, drove to Florida on Saturday and started work on Monday.

eHarmony Membership Website Case Study

If what we learned in Psychology 101 is true, the basic motivators of human behavior are simple: humans seek pleasure and avoid pain. You either have something you don’t want (avoidance principle) or you want something you don’t have (pleasure principle).

Psychologists tell us that everybody wants: food, shelter, health, sex, love, money and general well being. Look at every product you see advertised on the Internet or elsewhere. The ultimate reward to losing weight, finding a better job, buying a better home or car, etc., is finding intimacy with the person of your dreams—your soul mate.
