THE BOOK OF MY LIFE

THANH LINH NGUYEN

PASSIONATE MARKETING MANAGER

“If you want to shine tomorrow, you have to sparkle today.”

Chapter 1: ABOUT ME

A FULL-STACK MARKETER

Dear Readers,

I’m Thanh Linh Nguyen, an introvert guy in a noisy world. Most people underestimated introvert people because they are so quiet, not show up so much about their ability in comparison with an extrovert. Being an introvert in over 26 years, I have worked with all types of people in diversified personalities (based on MBTI test) and strongly understand how to use the power of an introvert.

With nearly 5 years of experience in the marketing industry, I have been being on the right track to be a self-motivated and results-driven Marketing Manager to manage all marketing campaigns contributing to business development and revenue growth.

I have a great passion for learning all pieces of knowledge that useful for my career and my life. Life is a journey to discover my own abilities and leave my legacy. I conceive profession doesn’t define who you are, but it is your quality and ability that shape who you are in any profession.

“What’s your mission here on earth?” I could be a dust particle on earth but it going to be a glittering dust particle in every working place I join in.
