During this turbulent time, why should small business owners, emerging entrepreneurs, and creative artists continue to make Publicity a priority?

PR is what’s going to propel their business forward. This is not the time to shrink or retreat, NOW is the time to step UP and step OUT in a bold, innovative way! This can be an optimal time to heighten your Visibility and garner more exposure for your Brand.

Can you share a few client success stories?

I enjoy working with small business owners, emerging entrepreneurs, and creative artists. I love helping my clients to share their stories with the world in a compelling, mediagenic way! For example, my client Benjamin Vidmar is a celebrity eco-Chef in Norway and he’s been featured on a Ford Truck Commercial, NBC and in Forbes. My client Jill Flowers has been a guest panelist on CNN and several other NY-based media outlets, My client Acy Brown has been in several national and international publications, including MarketWatch.com, my Client Charles J. Lewis is an accomplished thespian and author. My clients “Pretti Emage” are an Award-winning Rap/Hip Hop/R&B duo, My client JaneliaSoul is an international AfroBeats artist and Celiane The Voice has a global, otherworldly brand! All of my clients started off as small business owners with BIG dreams!

What are some of the main concerns that you hear as a result of the Coronavirus that your eBook addresses?

A lot of small business owners are trying to figure out how to stay afloat right now. And I believe the key to that is Innovation. Small business owners have to be willing to adopt a new business model. They have to be open to new ways of doing business—mainly via electronic platforms. And they have to remain positive and hopeful! This too shall pass.

What do you enjoy most about Public Relations?

I absolutely love working with people—I always have! Moreover, I love helping people to solve problems. Having a skilled, well-connected publicist on your team is beneficial as it allows my clients to just focus on their craft—without having to worry about publicizing their own business/product/service. Many small business owners already wear multiple hats—so having me onboard helps them to simply focus on what they do best.
