In this next episode of the AskJZ town hall, Jordan Zimmerman, founder and CEO of Zimmerman Advertising, discusses how he got the vision to create the one of the largest ad agencies in the world.

Believe it or not, he knew in ninth grade that he wanted to be in the ad world. In this video, he tells the story of the defining moments that led him to that conclusion.

He also says that it’s a “travesty” that our youth get out of high school and and don’t know what they want to do with their lives.  He believes it is incumbent on all of us to inspire them to find their passion in life -- so that they too can have successful careers.
