Around this time in 2009 I started Solo Dove Public Relations. I really didn’t have the name yet but I made up in my mind that I couldn’t just wait for that PR job to come. I was a college graduate who spent the better part of senior year looking for a public relations related job. That didn’t happen. So I created my position. I began freelancing in 2009 and haven’t looked back. I still hold down a 9-5 that funds my publicist habits. I am anticipating the day when I can do PR full-time. I’m working on it, trust me.
Maybe starting Solo Dove Public Relations was my new years resolution in a way. It was a new year and I didn’t want to get comfortable not working in PR. I heard to many tales of people getting a degree and not working within that profession. I didn’t want to be one of those people. My very first[official] client was my Fraternity brother Jerrod Langley. A big shout out goes to him.
Since I started Solo Dove Public Relations, I’ve had highs and lows. It has been a learning and growth experience. If I didn’t make mistakes I won’t have learned what didn’t work. I’ve defined my niche. Entertainment, Fashion and Non Profit publicity and public relations with a splash of event planning along side with counsulting. I’m continually working on building my media contacts. Refining my business practices. I want to continually get better at what I do.
I look forward to the days when I am 10, 20 years in the business and can look back at where it all started. I’m working towards longevity.
