Must watch if you're into FMM

There are many career paths that my major,
Fashion Marketing and Management,
offers. A Buyer is one of them. 

This is Keith Johnson and he is the Buyer-at-Large
for one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie.
(source unknown)

Keith hosts an amazing series on the Sundance Channel,
called Man Shops Globe
I am hooked!

"Claiming he has the "greatest job in the world," Keith Johnson invites viewers along on an international treasure hunt on the Sundance Channel original series, MAN SHOPS GLOBE. In out-of-the-way antique shops, private dealerships and craft stalls, Johnson looks for one-of-a-kind home furnishings and accessories. 

In each half-hour program, Keith travels to a new country in search of fantastic and unusual decorative objects, furniture, and textiles. He also seeks out the world's best artists and crafts people. MAN SHOPS GLOBE follows Johnson, who travels six months of the year, to ends-of-the-earth excursions, from flea markets in Paris to remote villages in India and obscure art studios in Turkey."

I've only been able to watch the second season so far,
but hopefully I'll be able to catch up on all the rest in time.

If you have any interest in being a Buyer
this show is a great way to get an idea
of how successful you could become!
You'll be traveling a lot & meeting all kinds of people.
The artists are all different and unique,
and each one has a story to tell through their work.

Here are some pictures from the Man Shops Globe gallery

Keith has a great personality and you can tell that he truly
loves his job. He has defiantly inspired me 
to go after whatever career I see fit for myself.

Make sure you catch this show!!
