I Earned My MASI: Allie Cleman

Allie Cleman is the promotional manager at Millennium Marketing Solutions (asi/379074). She has over six years of industry experience and holds an MBA. She earned her MASI in January, 2017.

Who in the business world do you admire most or strive to emulate?
I really admire sales coach Alice Heiman. When I took a couple of her seminars at the ASI Show Orlando in 2016, I thought she had great tips and advice on how to take advantage of specific marketing tools. I admire her dedication and professionalism in person and online.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, what would it be about and what actor would play you?
It would have to be a comedy, because I try to not take life too seriously. Katie Holmes would play me; I’ve been told that I look similar to her, and she seems quiet but fierce – just how I like to picture myself!

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
It was from my father, who’s one of the hardest-working people I’ve ever met. He always told me to “visualize, not memorize,” and I’ve been able to apply this to all areas in my life.

What’s on your business and personal bucket list?
Professionally, I want to own my own business someday; personally, I’d like visit Italy with my husband.

What’s one sentence you’d like to hear from your boss?
“What did we do without you?”

If you could choose an age to remain forever, which age would you choose? Why?
I’d like to stay at 29 forever. That way I’ve grown from my earlier mistakes but am still young enough to make a few risky choices in my professional life.

What would you do with your “15 minutes” of fame?
Promote myself! Isn’t that what we do in this industry??
