I'm sure you're here because you KNOW you are destined for GREATNESS, but you also know that hiring a full-time publicist ( or going to college for a Communications Degree) is expensive, and having real hands-on knowledge taught by a real professional, in a SHORT period of time.... could be a game changer for you and your business. I suppose you'd like to know what on earth makes me qualified to teach a friggin' course on media relations...?
While every publicist has her own methods, and I'd never say that I know it ALL...I do know a FEW things...
I'm a former Fortune 500 corporate publicist for a major record label, and in 2017, I founded a Los Angeles-based marketing and public relations firm, specializing in entertainment, lifestyle and entrepreneurs. I've worked in Marketing for nearly two decades in the Entertainment Industry, and have specialized in Public & Media Relations for 11 of those years. I possess a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management & Marketing, and an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts. I also studied Music Business Management for two years at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
I've secured media coverage for celebrities (I won't name drop but you can check my receipts on LinkedIn), corporations and entrepreneurs in major outlets such as: Essence, Forbes, Marie Claire Magazine, EURWeb, USA Today, Fox, KTLA, Hollywood Reporter and many more! I've wrangled media and talent for major award shows and festivals, I've coordinated television and radio appearances for countless celebrities.
I realized the TRUE power of media relations, when I was able to get my OWN stories featured, even though I'm not even close to a celebrity! My own stories have been featured in media such as Marie Claire Magazine, Sheen Magazine, Salon.com, PBS, Live Action News, Daily Signal, VoyageLA, ShoutoutLA, Medium and more! I've also been on national cable television and have had media outlets to request to film documentaries about my life, and even featured on a Billboard campaign. I share this to give you an example of the POWER of media relations.
All that said, I'm excited to package my expertise and bestow this knowledge upon you so that we can RISE TOGETHER!
