As a professional marketing consultant, Victoria Doramus knows that it takes a lot of hard work and preparation in order to succeed within her field. Doramus has worked at some of the highest levels of her industry and she has collaborated with some of the brightest minds in the field today. Doramus has worked for Creative Arts Agency, Stila Cosmetics and even the iconic Hollywood director, Peter Berg. As a graduate from the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO, Doramus came to her field with plenty of education and preparation. Let’s learn about Doramus in order to see how she has turned into the successful entrepreneur that she is today.
Working as an entrepreneur means that you always need to be prepared to take down a concept in order to put it into reality. For Doramus, this concept takes the form of a hand-written list that she carries with her everywhere that she goes. Doramus made an explicit decision to make this list handwritten rather than digital because the act of writing is at once old school and more memory defining. You don’t easily forget the things that you write down, but can you remember the last text message that you sent?
Even though Doramus has had plenty of success in her career, there have still been times where she fell short of her own standards and ambitions. Doramus believes that failure is important and she believes that, more important than failing, you have to learn to take responsibility for yourself when you come up short. Once you acknowledge that you’ve failed, you can grow from the experience. Along with that same tangent, Doramus wishes she could go back in time in order to advocate for her younger self to be more confident in life and to slow down and take time to appreciate the little things.
Outside of her work in the marketing field, Doramus is active as a philanthropist. Doramus dedicates both her time and her money toward supporting the Amy Winehouse Foundation, Room To Read and the Women’s Prison Association among other things. Doramus believes that her philanthropy is a huge part of her career and finds it incredibly important to her work.
