When you meet someone, what do you want them to know?
That’s what I keep asking myself as I write this page.
I am breaking this Meet Molly page into 2 parts.
First, let’s get professional and then we can get personal.
The Professional Bio of Molly Thornberg
As a digital marketing and communications professional in Dallas, TX – I have the the ability to think creatively and strategically, create change and get the job done.
What do I bring to the table? With a wide range of skills, a comprehensive digital marketing background and a can-do attitude – I can offer more than your average bear. I’m a quick thinker, strategically minded (with a side of creative) and have the ability to pivot whenever needed. I am highly adaptable in any work climate.
While working in live event marketing, I became an early adopter to social media. Quickly, I discovered the power of social media. I was created innovative ways to utilize social media to sell tickets, create community, develop a communication channel, grow a brand and harness it’s power for word-of-mouth marketing. As a forever learner, I continue to strive to find new ways to use new forms of media for digital marketing purposes.
With my knowledge of digital marketing, I have been able to establish personal brands thru content creation, email marketing, social media and search engine optimization. This has allowed me to take on a whole new level of professional skills.
While working at Thomas Nelson, I had the privilege of working with Michael Hyatt. He was the CEO of Thomas Nelson at the time, and was (and still is) a great inspiration. One of the things he had his employees do, that stuck with me was taking the Strengthfinders test. The philosophy is to focus on your strengths, rather than your weaknesses. (Read a post from Michael Hyatt here – Are You Operating In Your Strengths?)
Here are my 5 main strengths:
10 Things You Should Know About Molly Thornberg
A Listicle Style Personal Bio
Now, let’s get personal. While this is the professional website of Molly Thornberg, I feel that to really know me, we have to get a little personal. Traditional bios can be boring and something you should know, I don’t do boring.
I love working in the online space. Digital marketing, creating content and building communities are of course my passions, but for those who just want to know about the person behind the name, keep reading.
Back in the early day of web design, the big thing was WYSISYG HTML editors.
WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get
Molly’s life motto is to be WYSIWYG. Transparent and real. Nobody has time for that fake stuff.
Molly is an enneagram 7w8. She likes to have fun but knows how to get stuff done.
Sean and Molly have 4 kids, ranging from elementary to high school. With 3 boys and a daughter, the laundry is never done, the noise is always loud and something is always being broken. It keeps life interesting.
I started my career before having kids. After having our first child, I quickly learned the skills that it takes to be a mother are the skills it takes to be a great employee.
Moms care. We work hard, know how to prioritize things, natural motivators and are driven. We don’t stop until the job is done and we are use to pulling all-nighters!
At least I can so that those are mom qualities that I’ve acquired since become a mother.
Don’t Forget the Dogs!
In addition to the 4 kids, they have 2 dogs. A pug and golden doodle. They also contribute to the mess and noise.
Did you know that petting your dog for just 15 minutes can reduce your blood pressure up to 10%? (read more)
Molly is a life-long Texan. Though after a recent vacation to the north California area, she is currently looking for a friend with a beach view who needs a long-term house sitter.
Molly and her fam live in a Yellow Farmette, outside of Dallas, TX.
Someday they will have farm animals, for now they have kids. That’s almost the same, right?
Believer in Grace and Sweet Wine
Molly loves Jesus, is a strong believer in GRACE and she drinks a little.
Favorite wine – Texas Hill Vineyards – Orange Moscato
Be Like a Flamingo
Graceful but rowdy, balanced but unique and a little tacky – Molly wants to be like a flamingo.
