SIEMPRE PUESTA PA' LA MISIÓN

A career in media isn't easy. Job opportunities? Slim. Layoffs? Almost guaranteed. Financial stability? Lol. As millennial and gen z journalists, content creators, social media experts and communications​ professionals, we face an ever-changing media landscape, one that is increasingly replacing full-time positions, which often include healthcare benefits and 401(k)s, with freelance gigs, which offer freedom with a side of uncertainty and anxiety about your future. But this doesn't have to be the case for you. 

 

Having worked at a magazine that shuttered and being laid off at not one but two outlets, I know how defeated one can feel in this industry. But while every job loss chipped away at my passion and confidence (reminder: layoffs have zero to do with your job performance. You're amazing. It's the business that blows.), I was receiving lessons I couldn't recognize at the time -- particularly, how to be a kick-ass freelancer. While many struggle to make this new reality work for them, I excelled, and although I won't dismiss my talent and industry connections as contributors to my success, my triumphs largely come from being a hustler with smarts and heart.

 

Now, I want to help you.
