Today we’d like to introduce you to Lillie Mae.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Lillie. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
As a student at UNC-Chapel Hill, I gained my first Public Relations experiences while interning for Universal-Motown Records, Atlantic Records, and Ogilvy PR. Upon relocating to Atlanta after graduation, a close-friend began managing an American Idol break-out star and asked I launch a PR campaign for him. This inspired me to create my own agency and the rest is history! Over the last decade, my agency work has included client placements on national television & radio platforms, USA Today, Huffington Post, Yahoo News and more. I’ve worked with a number of prestigious brands, celebrities, special events and business owners as well. Most recently I’ve also launched a new company division specifically to assist women entrepreneurs: www.GlamBoss.org
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Owning a business can definitely be a bit of a rollercoaster at times. One of the major struggles for me early-on was achieving a work-life balance. I was totally consumed with my business and missed a number of special moments with family and friends. However, with time, I realized that creating a team that you can trust is a key element in running a business successfully while balancing a quality personal life.
