Jack Yeaton is one of those guys. You know, the kind that you meet and feel like you’ve known forever; the type that is connected more than the Google network, and with an understated authority that makes you forget he’s really, really good at what he does as the managing director of Kortenhaus Communications and founder of The Yeaton Group, a boutique public relations and marketing firm. Why? Because he is F-U-N!
Finding Meaning: I once read a story that discussed how to find your life purpose in five steps. Malarkey. It takes more steps for me to get my coffee right. I believe we are all still on a journey of discovery and learning. Enjoy the adventure!
Job Content: I’ll borrow my mother’s wording for “What does your son do?”: I’m paid to socialize, tell stories, digest media (especially Instagram!) and travel.
Career Highlights: Oddly, they involve cocktail parties! At my former firm in Manhattan and Los Angeles, my clients included The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Whitney Port and Tim Gunn. It was a daily—and sometimes hourly—activity. I appreciated the level-headed straighshooters the most.
