The INDIEgator: Did you encounter any issues initially while getting started with this Career?

JNoS PR: I’m an Entertainment enthusiast so for me it was not difficult getting started at all. I remained focused on my goals, worked hard and fought through every tough situation victoriously!

The INDIEgator: What did you do to prepare yourself for going this direction in Media?

JNoS PR: As I developed JNoS Public Relations, I researched several Publicists in New York and Hollywood to ensure that I was on the right track to a successful business. Over time, I have developed my own way of doing things, but within PR guidelines.

The INDIEgator: Great idea! Researching a field of interest is very important. Also, how did your Education in Mass Communication help what you’re doing now?

JNoS PR: While in Graduate school, I enjoyed sharing my Media presentations with the class as well as Media outlets on campus. The hands-on experience was very beneficial and it encouraged me to hone my craft.

The INDIEgator: Do Publicists ever get together and discuss industry issues or clients? Do you all have Networking Events?

JNoS PR: Sometimes Publicists do team up to complete large projects on partnership agreements, but their individual clients’ issues remain confidential. You can always count on meeting a Publicist at a networking event. Those are the best places to gain new contacts!

The INDIEgator: Tell us just a little about 3 of the clients you are currently representing?

JNoS PR:  I am currently working with DeeSmuve, Karma, Ms. Niko, Johntino (and his management company Knight Time Management) and Antonio Smith. Choosing 3 to talk about is tough because I love discussing them all!

The INDIEgator: What type of events or venues can we witness some of these and your future clients performing or appearing at?

JNoS PR: I am very excited about the upcoming events for 2014 and you can expect to see my clients performing on a few larger stages this year. We will be on tour with the Bounce TV Music Festival.
