The Dreadwake

When you think of World of Warcraft (WoW), you may imagine ransacking dungeons for loot and slaying dragons. At KPS3, we think of those things too, but we also think of how Blizzard Entertainment (aka Blizzard, or affectionately “Blizz”), World of Warcraft’s creators, have maintained a wildly successful subscription-based service for more than 14 years. I am currently subscribed to WoW. I’m not even playing right now, so why, much to my wife’s chagrin, do I still pay that...

Hey Janet, what does an AE do?

I’ve been asked, what is it that we do exactly as account executives at KPS3? In short, we make all of our clients dreams a reality. If this gif doesn’t look familiar to you, you probably haven’t yet seen the hit show on NBC, The Good Place. Meet the woman in purple, Janet. She has all of the answers and makes the impossible possible. That’s mostly because Janet isn’t human. She’s a robot. If there is a fictional character that...

Grumpy Cat, the internet’s most famous feline, starred in her own movie. In 2017, BarkBox conducted a...

Getting my APR raised my B-A-R

My schedule is always packed with a jammed calendar of client meetings, media activities, a million assignments and social events, and most have told me that they cannot keep up with me. Yet, I was at a point in my career where I wanted another challenge. Getting an MBA was not in my future – it’s just something I felt wasn’t in my...
