In this edition of “Meet the Lucky Orange team” we flipped the table on our very own senior content marketing manager, Angi Bowman, and took her out of her day job as the interview expert and put her in the hot seat for once as the interviewee.
When she’s not running between basketball games and trumpet practice for her two kids, Angi Bowman is hard at work crafting the perfect message for the Lucky Orange blog, social media accounts and so much more.
Lucky for me, she was able to put the pen down (figuratively speaking) for a moment to chat with me about her role at Lucky Orange and to share some fun facts about herself.
Molly Staats (MS): What makes your job at Lucky Orange different from any of your other jobs?
Angi Bowman (AB): Let me count the ways. I mean, I used to write for the pork industry. You could say that was a bit different from working at Lucky Orange! But to really answer your question, my past jobs consisted of a monotonous list of the same things to do day in and day out. I was still writing and creating, but I wasn’t allowed to venture outside of my box of projects.
Here at Lucky Orange, it’s the exact opposite. My days are filled with variety. I could be working on new HR material at 9 a.m., creating a video tutorial at 10:30 a.m., tweeting at noon, writing a case study at 1:30 p.m. and designing a new Facebook ad at 3 p.m. There’s no lack of options.
MS: What’s one thing you own that you should probably get rid of, but just can’t?
AB: We moved to a new house in 2016, so we purged a lot of our stuff to move. That being said, I somewhat hoard cookbooks. I know that I have no use for that 1970s book of classic recipes like hollandaise-coated bananas or the 1930s guide to using an icebox. It’s just too hard to part with them!
By the way, I never actually make those recipes. I’m not that brave!
MS: One word that describes you?
AB: Organized. My family is always on the go. Staying organized is definitely my strong suit.
MS: What celebrity do you wish you were related to?
AB: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I am absolutely in love with disaster movies like “Twister” and “San Andreas.” I think it would be fun to be related to a guy who not only stars in the best (or worst?) disaster movies, has an incredible backstory, is a family man and seems just like a cool dude in general.
MS: What is a phrase or word you always say?
AB: “Just one more picture…” is something I apparently say way too often with my kids. It’s not my fault I just want a good picture!
MS: If you weren’t working at Lucky Orange, what would you be doing?
AB: That’s such a hard question to answer! I’ve been here since 2016 and have grown so much in this role; I can’t imagine my world without! But to answer your question, if I weren’t able to work at Lucky Orange, I would probably be trying to handle content marketing for a cruise line (especially if it meant free cruises).
MS: And the most important question I could possibly ask a content marketer … I’m dying to know; do you spell the color as grey or gray?
AB: I prefer the American spelling of gray. I have gray/blue eyes, and I thought that was pretty special when I was in high school. If you look at my driver’s license, you’ll even see gray listed as my eye color. So … gray it is!
