Public Relations

Love, Frustration Relationship with Public Relations

Many ask why did I choose to work in Public Relations.  Let me say this, I have a love, frustration relationship with my profession. I truly love and sincerely enjoy working in public relations because my passion is the advocacy, mission, and purpose to assist clients in building their brand. I love the tireless hustle, no sleep for weeks, the demanding grind, and ALL THE PERKS that come with working with A-List clients. However, there is a downside to all the masses. What frustrates me the most is the unprofessional and lack of business etiquette from others in this industry. At times, I just want to scream and pull out my hair when it comes to following up with folks. My pet peeve is someone always asking for something for nothing, never offer anything in exchange. I lead by example. I have succeeded in this business by demonstrating one main rule, “To extend the right hand to get, extend the left hand to give….at the same time.”   That will take you a very long way!

Respectfully,
