We had the good fortune of connecting with Holly Morgan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Holly, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The most important lesson my career has taught me is that nothing is wasted. After 10 years of jumping from market to market as a news reporter and anchor, I felt as though I had failed when I left the business. Little did I know, that decade as a journalist was preparing me to be the best publicist I could possibly be. My time in news has allowed me to write articles for editors on behalf of my clients, understand the different types of shows that air on a news station and craft compelling pitches that get noticed.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Holly Morgan Media is a full-service PR agency that offers earned media opportunities for businesses and individuals via TV, radio, print and online placements. You pay for advertising and pray for publicity. As a publicist, I have many tips and tricks to get a brand noticed or position a person as an expert in their industry. After working in TV news for 10 years, PR comes naturally to me. When a client gets media coverage, it’s just as exciting and rewarding for me as a former news junkie.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m a pretty laid back person and like to keep things simple. So, if I really wanted to show someone a good time, I’d start by spending some time at the Montelucia spa, head over to Olive Garden for endless salad and breadsticks, and wrap things up with a beer tasting at Phoenix Ale Brewery.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My best friend Candie Guay, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Envida, pushed me to start my own company because she believed in me. If it weren’t for her encouragement and support, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
