238 | Andrea Hall: Executive Director, GratefulFriends.org
Don’t tapdance too loudly. Under promise and over-deliver. That’s my advice. -Andrea Hall
Andrea Hall is living proof that our lives really do unfold like chapters in a book. Her latest chapter finds her at the helm of a non-profit called Grateful Friends www.gratefulfriends.org where the mission is to provide financial support to adults undergoing cancer treatment. But just how did she get here? Andi was raised by a single mom in a great big Greek family in Brookline, MA. Armed with a degree in Communications from Boston University, she landed in radio sales at the iconic WXKS AM where she shared office space with legendary broadcasters Arnie Woo Woo Ginsburg and Sunny Joe White. Always curious about where her father was, Andi discovered him in her 30s and experienced the joy of not only meeting him but learning that he was a well-known music executive. Her natural ability to work with artists led her to a career at Universal Music Group where she promoted superstars like Smokey Robinson, Aerosmith, Mary J Blige, Guns N’ Roses, and more. As a single mom, she felt a deep need to be a hands-on mom to her son Ty, so she founded New Leaf Marketing, working from home to create a thriving business as an entrepreneur for over 20 years. In this interview, Andrea shares her deep understanding that everything she has done in her life has led her to where she is today. She taps into her well-honed skills and talents, along with a belief that relationships are everything. Her mantra? “Sunnyside up. Never complain. Be resilient and keep on pluggin'!” #cancer #resilience #gratitude
