You’ll Learn:

  • How Ron transitioned from the non-profit sector as a PR professional to the for-profit sector and freelance journalism.
  • The essential questions to ask that will lead to wisdom and ensure your skillset never becomes outdated.
  • Brands seeking to latch onto youth culture need to think long term with their influencer marketing programs, not just as a transaction.


3 Key Points:

  1. Career success is a long-term commitment, not unlike marriage. You’ve got to stay committed long past the honeymoon phase.
  2. The “soft-skill” of networking can’t be avoided or overstated. Learning that art is an absolute must.
  3. Celebrity is a fickle friend. Influencers must be extremely savvy to handle the entire behind the scene functions that come along with online celebrity.
