2017: a year of growth. 2018: a year of rebuilding. That’s because even when every block drops, there’s still a hand that puts it all back together. Well I just made that one up, but you get the gist, and it sums up my life.
Last year was a tough year of loss for many people around me, & I felt 1/10th of their pain. I saw the impact it had on them. All of it has given me
- perspective on how a life can be taken away so quickly,
- clarity on what is important, and
- some amazing pieces of clothing, from a beautiful soul, that I will cherish because that’s the closest thing I have to her. Thank you x infinity
Speaking of life, I’ve just graduated! As exciting as that’s been, I know what comes next from family and friends. Here come the questions.
“Now that you’ve graduated, what’s next?”
Well, here’s what I’m up to! I started to work with a publicist in September on strictly social media, posting about her clients on social media platforms and then I began helping her with press releases, organizing guest lists for film events/red carpets – which led me to meeting the Riverdale crew. In October, I was connected with a film distributor to consult on the marketing aspect of films. Few weeks after, I met with another publicist that had heard about me. She is launching a beauty brand, and also needed a brand make over for her company. One of her clients used to be Nash Clubs, and another client was in the midst of launching a new TV Series, which will be available on Netflix soon. In addition to that, I was introduced to a VOD/Broadcast film distributor who is releasing a new horror movie. I’m helping them with social media and distribution marketing. On top of that, I am also creating websites for financial advisors. All of this makes up 50 hours a week on average.
So my weeks are filled with meetings, working at coffee shops or at home, squeezing a work out in, cuddling with my cat, meeting new people, and helping make their dreams come true!
Do I enjoy working remotely? There are ups and downs, you have to self-motivate and be disciplined. My title? Social Media Strategist, Digital Marketing Strategist & Executive Strategist. I believe the reason why I have been able to grow my client list is because I respond promptly and get things done right away, which creates trust. Trust is hard to come by but essential to building any kind of relationships!
I basically – well actually I do – have my laptop with me wherever I go, because you never know what your client may need.
