Q: How will your tips help entrepreneurs build their business?
A: My tips will really help open peoples’ eyes to something they may have not thought of before. Nothing that I do is traditional. I’m always thinking outside the box.
Q: Your business is called unfiltered PR. How did you come up with that name and what does it mean?
A: If you know me, you know I’m the epitome of being unfiltered. It translates in my business and the results I deliver to my clients.

Q: What’s it like being a young entrepreneur in Boca Raton?
