AchieveIt Executive Speaks on Internet Radio Talk Show

Atlanta, GA - (NewMediaWire) - December 19, 2013 - AchieveIt, a leading provider of execution management and strategic planning software, announced today the appearance of chief sales officer, Andrew Somoza, on the popular internet radio talk show, “Real Talk for Real Teens.” Somoza’s segment will air on the radio show on Thursday, December 19 at 8 PM EST. The interview is available for play back on the Real Talk for Real Teens website at

“Real Talk for Real Teens” aids in the professional development of young adults by providing information and opportunities on 21st century “soft” skills. Show creator Kim Crayton, a former high school teacher and youth volunteer, interviews distinguished business people weekly on the different skills teens should develop to succeed in today’s business world.

"I want to change how young people prepare themselves for a life of work,” said show creator, Kim Crayton. “No longer is it enough to 'know what you are doing'. Young people must also be able to work in ways that require them to demonstrate an ability to adapt to situations and circumstances that may not currently exist. The world in which they will create a living for themselves is often being defined on a moment to moment basis which understandably can lead to great uncertainty. Yet with the appropriate foundation firmly in place young people can learn to bend and not break with the changing winds."

 AchieveIt offers cloud-based strategic planning software and support services designed to accelerate financial and operational results through enhanced visibility and accountability. Somoza is the chief sales officer of AchieveIt, and joined the company in early 2011. During his tenure with AchieveIt Somoza has steered the company to triple annual sales revenues in both 2012 and 2013. Somoza has a long track record of driving organizational success through direct sales, business development, and channel management, taking advantage of expertise that has been developed over more than 15 years in technology service sales, both domestically and internationally.

During the radio interview Somoza focused on encouraging kids to think creatively. “Children and teens today are no longer encouraged to think creatively, without limits,” said Andrew Somoza. “You get a box of Legos and it comes with a picture of what it is supposed to look like and detailed instructions. I want to encourage teens to dare to think creatively, as the job market becomes increasingly competitive, it is one of the few ways to differentiate yourself.”

In addition to his professional pursuits, Somoza is an active in speaking to students at Georgia Tech and the University of Georgia, as well as speaking for the Technology Association of Georgia. Somoza also serves on the board of directors for the Alexander-Tharpe Fund.

 “I am passionate about sharing knowledge, giving others the benefit of my experiences working in the business world and mentoring youth to succeed professionally,” said Somoza, “The ingredients for success aren’t always outlined black and white, which is why it is important to talk and share with young adults.”
