Last month I decided to get off my ass and start my PR company, Harlow Media Group. I moved here 5 years ago trying to work in music PR, so essentially I just took the first step to creating my dream and making it happen. You can Like it (and support me)on Facebook here, and follow it on twitter here. I would sincerely appreciate it.
This has by far been the scariest thing I’ve done but I hope this inspires someone to just take the jump and do what they wanted to. Coming from primarily a music writing background, I have a lot of people in the industry I’ve pissed off by denying their advances and going my own way. Knowing for a fact that there are people out there that want to see me fail at this is pretty bittersweet; it’s good motivation to keep going and prove them wrong, and it’s worrisome. I’ll be honest.
That being said, I have experience in this and I’ve done this for over 10 years DIY on top if it. This is the only thing I know how to do, and I’ve already made pretty big headway with it. It’s constant work on top of my other two jobs but to see results already is amazing.
If you want to do something you’re passionate about, just do it. Anyone who can’t support someone following their dreams has issues of their own. Ignore the noise.
