Do you want to build a press worthy personal brand and have a strategy to create your foundation of celebrity?

In her interview on the Sweet life entrepreneur podcast Brielle dove into detail about how to go ahead about achieving these results in the foundation of celebrity. This is taking your entire business into account, not just your press pitch.

It's important to do this to make the most of the attention that you receive.
