Who I am:
Lindsey Carnett, founder of Marketing Maven.
I secure press coverage for companies that would otherwise not get to tell their important stories to the world. Marketing Maven is a full service marketing and communications agency with offices in Los Angeles and New York. A premier voice in the industry, Marketing Maven specializes in innovative media relations, social media strategy, brand strategy and activation, creative direction and much more.
How I overcame it:
I overcame it by taking charge of my destiny. I started an agency to determine who I would work with each day and not be dependent on income from one company alone.
What happened next:
I have led my team to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for non-profit and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) clients. I have created 20+ jobs and am a passionate mentor of other women in the workforce.
