"Trust me. I've been there, done that with so many different Agencies and PR companies that promise the world and just never deliver. Somehow, I was doing all the work, and they would take a cut alongside all the credit, when really I was the one behind learning and developing these valuable connections with brands, platforms, editors, etc. But then I realized it wasn't all for nothing. I have all these great relationships and connections now to share and help others develop their careers too."
