It’s been a great year of lessons learned and I wanted to share them with you! I’ve learned some great things about myself that will push me through to an even better 2020. What was the #1 lesson your learned in life and work in 2019?

Marie Daniels heightened our brand awareness in our community both locally and online. Juggling the marketing needs of an historical property while keeping its religious integrity requires a finesse that Marie managed with ease and professionalism. She directed an internal team and managed the multiple events we hosted throughout the year, including our annual fundraising gala and Dia de los Muertos festival which brought 15,000+ community member visitors to the Mission San Luis Rey. Marie Daniels worked seamlessly with our team, stakeholders and local business and government entities to grow the awareness of our programs and offerings. She was a tech savvy professional that understood our challenges and was able to point us in a progress-driven direction within our slower paced Franciscan Friar culture. We are grateful for her help.

She kept my shit together when I couldn’t. Often as a creative we’re a bit all over the place especially early in our careers.   

When my career started to really take off she was the glue between the cracks. She challenged me professionally and put me in front of opportunities only I could imagine.   

She helped me navigate through tough times, stuck around for the extra innings because she saw my potential and represented me at a very high standard.  

She’s the real deal. I call her “Boss Bitch.”

Being a highly sought after celebrity Chef, my calendar and requests for new contracts and appearances can be a monster to handle. 

Marie, prioritizes information and delivers concise information making sure I am spending my time on projects that are aligned with my values and my professional goals. 

She is not just a filter, but a Manager, Publicist, and a Psychologist when I need her!

What are you looking for to grow your brand?

Over the last 2 decades, I have managed to gather a team of talented creatives that have helped me deliver outstanding results for my clients efficiently and without all the drama.

As a tech geek, I have always been that person that loved to try out all the tools and gadgets to see what worked and what was just a gimmick. See, gimmicks are not my thing.

As a publicist for high profile clients, I found out quickly that what really worked was honesty, hard work and relevance. Believe me. These three concepts keep my clients in good standing and hold up to the integrity they expect of me.

That is what creates a great brand that people come to know and trust.
