Becoming A PR Consultant – You Can Do It!Posted: November 1, 2012
People from the PR field are always admiring those who took the leap to be an independent consultant. In the Solo PR Pro blog, Kellye Crane used an encouraging and positive tone to tell people, ”You can do it!”
She shared her experience from a PR practitioner in agency to run her own business. In 1995, she gave up a raise and promotion opportunities in the PR agency she worked for and started her journey as an independent PR consultant. She talked about how she has been through in the beginning of her solo PR path, being underpaid and under-appreciated. Then she built her business with sweat and achieved what she has today. Kellye answered some common misgivings among potential solo PR pros, and set examples of herself to tell people don’t let some of the myths hold you back. There is no doubt that this article will push those hesitant over the edge.
Are you a high-flyer? Are you a risk taker? Are you hesitating to make the transition? I hope Kellye’s advice can offer you some insights to make the jump.
