Name a challenge you've faced throughout your journey? How did you overcome it and RISE?
Part of my job as a PR professional is to find new clients. Having been in business for quite some time, Two Queens Media has a solid reputation. We have been fortunate enough to have a steady flow of clients since Covid 19; our policy is that we only work with clients that can benefit from our services. Since the pandemic, we haven’t been able to service our clients in person; however, since we serve international clients virtually, converting to a full virtual model was simple. One obstacle we faced was having potential clients who wanted Public Relations and had a great story but they did not have the budget or maybe they hadn’t developed their business and/or product to convey a compelling story. As a result, we helped companies resolve these issues by providing them with a PR audit to assess what was needed to continue working with Two Queens Media.
What does a typical day look like for you as a working professional and business owner?
There are no two days that are alike. A typical day consists of me checking my emails, listening to the morning news, reviewing reports, creating press releases and/or other media communications. I also communicate with representatives of the community, consumers, employees, or public interest groups. Finally, research, research, and more research. Despite the amount of work Public Relations requires, I enjoy it because of the fast pace of the entertainment industry and seeing my clients succeed.
