Quote:

“Some of us tend to think that PR is really only for large, multinational brands that have these huge marketing budgets. The reality is any business owner at any level, I think, can benefit from PR greatly. It’s extremely powerful. It’s a tool that I feel like a lot of businesses should be utilizing and it’s often underestimated.” – Jackie Berlowski, publicist and founder of GreatHerGood PR
