We had the good fortune of connecting with Diana Mantey and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Diana, how does your business help the community?
In addition to helping entrepreneurs grow their purpose-driven businesses, Next Generation Advertising also gives back by offering The Ad Passport Scholarship, a flight-reimbursement scholarship program for college students studying abroad. This scholarship is open 2x per year (Fall and Spring) and is open to college students who are attending a US college/university and have been accepted into a semester or year-long study abroad program. You can learn more at www.ngadvertising.com/scholarship

What should our readers know about your business?
I am a Facebook Ad Manager for online entrepreneurs who Live Launch. What sets me apart from others who run ads is that I am a solopreneur, not an agency. Therefore, I am able to offer a very high-touch and personal experience for clients, which I am proud of! I also love learning from other accomplished FB ad managers and agency owners. I am always investing in some sort of ad program to learn new strategies and stay up-to-date on trends!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I just moved to Phoenix a little over a year ago, so I’m still a bit of a noob! But I love spending time in the beautiful outdoors and bike riding by Tempe Town Lake during the day and spending time at Mavrixs or Suns games at night! And we would definitely get some bubble tea. 🙂

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shout out my fiancé and best friend Nick for being my seed investor and being one of the only people who supported me when I decided to turn down job offers and start my own business. I wouldn’t be where I am or as happy and confident as I am now without his love and support. THANK YOU, NICK! 😀
