Q: First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
A: After losing my mother to suicide when I was 9 years old, I vowed I would be an
author and be someone that helped rid this world of suicide and the stigmas
surrounding mental health issues.
Q: What advice would you give to beginners who are nervous?
A: Being nervous is a blessing, it means you are starting to get outside of your comfort
zone-getting what you never have had means doing things you have never done
before-embrace failure like your new best friend.
Q:What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
A: I have been writing since I was 9 years old so my process has changed throughout
the years-on days I write-that is all I do is write-I make no other plans for that time and I
go through my brainstorming systems and get a first draft down on paper
Q :Tell me how you organize, plan, and prioritize your work?
A: Great question this is a hard one for a lot of entrepreneurs-I learned what I do now
from my mentor Steve D Sims-I write down all the taskings that I have outstanding-then
on that list I place dollar signs $$ next to the tasks that will lead to being paid(ie I do
what leads to pay first-ie client work etc-I begin on the projects that only I can do then
outsource the rest
Q: What Kind of Things have you Done on the Social Side?
A: On social media? This is a pretty broad question but I have done everything from
writing social media posts for myself and clients, I have grown channels, and ran very
successful marketing campaigns on social media
Q: How long does it take you to write a book?
A: That depends on the purpose of the book-As I shared before I have been writing a
very long time so do not compare your writing speeds to mine or anyone elses-we all
have to find our own flow-but I have completed ebooks in 30 minutes and the longest it
took me to write one of my books was 3 years(coming out in early 2023!)
Q : As celebrity management, Describe how you keep informed of industry trends and
deals. Share an experience in which this helped you in your work?
A: When dealing with any influencer management keeping up with the trends is
CRITICAL-we do this by having trusted sources we check three times daily-we reach
out to journalists who write about specific platforms and we have created great
relationships with employees of companies such as Meta, Instagram, Social Media
Today, Google etc. Through relationships, we are able to keep up with ACCURATE
changes that will affect our brand and the brand of our clients.
Q : Google+, Flickr, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube—what’s your favorite social
network and why?
A: My absolute favorite is Twitter-By learning to keep to the low character count of
Twitter-our brand message has become very clear you have to get to the point
quickly-now a lot of entrepreneurs do not like Twitter-but we have found the influencers
on Twitter are high-level CEO’s that follow through with appointments-deals-interviews
etc-as they like us are there to get to the point and grow our brand. I LOVE Twitter
