Excellent! Thank you!
I thank you for your instructional videos. I thought writing a press release would be easy until I had my first press release returned recently (It destroyed my confidence), so now with your instructions, I have my confidence back, and I should have better results when I turn in my next press release. You did a really great job explaining the details and making the different steps of writing a press release all clear and easy to understand. I will definitely recommend this class to my all my followers. I have the greatest followers, so that is why I want to write great press releases. I want my followers to completely understand what I am announcing to them and get my free ebooks or whatever I am announcing at that time, and I can do this because of you. Thank you, again for these awesome videos.

Porsha Thomas

Founder at Ladypreneur League

I’m Porsha Thomas – ambassador of buzz, connector of the dots and lover of startups. I’m a Texan in Georgia (Atlanta, respectively), a reformed-party girl (because now it’s called “networking”) and I’m passionate about helping women do big things.

So that’s where Ladypreneur League comes in. I consider it the love-child of all my buzz-creatingdot-connectingfemale founder-admiring, and party-girlisms, mixed with a desire to find my tribe.

A few random things: Ten-year-old me would be proud that I still love the smell of book pages, reading magazines back-to-front and adore the color pink (because now it’s called “salmon”). I gave the Mayborn School of Journalism some bucks and hard time and got a News-Editorial BA. I’d live inside a mash-up of Domino and Bon Appetit magazines. I got over my fear of seeing and hearing myself on camera this year. I teach things.
