“Remember that, when you leave the room, whatever people whisper about you is who you are or what your product is. Make that product live for greatness.” ~Porsha Hargrove

Being a successful business owner requires that you make your brand visible for people to know what you offer and how you can help them. If people don’t know who you are and what you do, how can they hire you to help them?

That’s what this week’s episode is about – public relations and how you can use it to make yourself and your brand visible.
