My guest this week is none other than the advertising extraordinaire, Linda Kaplan Thaler. Linda is the co-author of the newly released book, Grit to Great. She has appeared on many TV Shows, including Donald Trump's The Apprentice, CNN, The Today’s Show, and Good Morning America.
Linda has an incredible past — she is responsible for some of the most popular advertising campaigns, like the Aflac duck, and the “Yes! Yes! Yes!” Herbal Essences campaign. She wrote the “I’m a Toys’R’Us Kid” jingle, Kodak Moments, and worked on two Clinton presidential campaigns. Linda is the former Chairman of Publicis Kaplan Thaler, and her clients included Proctor and Gamble, Citi, L’Oréal, Pfizer, and Wendy’s. She is now the president of Kaplan Thaler Productions.
