Due Diligence: Getting to Know Miles Greenspoon



We’re thrilled to share the next spotlight in our “Due Diligence: Getting To Know…” series: Research and Content Manager Miles Greenspoon in New York.

Macro: What do you love most about your work?

Miles: The people at Macro are top notch. Macro employs some of the smartest, kindest, and most productive people I’ve ever met, and I am so fortunate to be in a position that allows me to work with so many of them on a daily basis.

Macro: What is one thing you couldn’t make it through the day without?

Miles: Music. I listen to a ton of music when I write. It keeps me entertained and encourages me to progress my work in the same way the music is progressing.

Macro: What are your tried-and-true “work hacks?”

Miles: Every day, I pull up a blank email draft and put the date in the subject. I use that draft as my daily notepad, where I organize my to-do list, take meeting notes, and put reminders to myself. I review the prior day’s notes to make sure I’m tackling any priority items first. This way, I have an organized and indexed list of all notes in my email, and since drafts auto-save, I don’t have to worry about losing any work.

Macro: What hard and soft skills do you lean on most in your day-to-day work?

Miles: As the person who writes Macro’s marketing content… I write a lot. I do a lot of outlining to help organize my thoughts, and I can type so quickly on a keyboard that my notes are often just a verbatim transcript of that meeting.

Macro: What surprises people about your job?

Miles: I think that people are surprised someone in a “Type B” creative position uses those same skills for “Type A” organizational work. I’m regularly sending out updates, status trackers, information grids, and action items to stakeholders at every level within the company, utilizing similar communication methods I employ for creating content for a presentation or proposal. I call it “project managing the project managers.”

Macro: If you could give one piece of advice to a young professional, what would it be?

Miles: Asking questions is a sign of curiosity, not stupidity. It shows you want to understand as clearly and thoroughly as possible. The fastest way to learn is to simply ask about what you don’t know.

Macro: Describe yourself in 5 words or less.

Miles: Friendly, creative, energetic, growing, tired.
