Episode 17: Your PR Dreams Can Come True … Here’s Proof!

If your big dream is to be featured on Oprah, but you haven’t even been mentioned in your local newspaper, then this episode is for you! Come be inspired by my clients’ continued success.

You have big dreams about going big time, and you may be asking yourself the BIG question: Where do I start? I have the answer to that question, plus a lot more…

For 30 years, I’ve been a premier publicist and brand strategist. I show seasoned speakers and coaches effective ways to build their brand, shine online, and get media attention.

I love my clients – who’ve included bestselling authors and icons in the gospel industry – and I love being a part of the gifts they bring to the world. Crafting a winning publicity strategy and finding the right media to match your message is MY gift. 😊

 So, walk with me along my Pinterest Wall of Fame while I share the stories of clients whose PR dreams have come true – from ribbon cutting ceremonies to features in Ebony and The Washington Post to repeat spots on CNN. And remember: I can help make your dreams come true, too!

“A publicist is always thinking of ways to pitch your story. We’re not ‘spin doctors’ … we’re finding angles and hooks that will interest the media.” – Pam Perry
