Reputation… it can take years to build and just one mistake to cancel. Samie Roberts began her career as an intern with Diane Von Furstenberg and rose in the ranks in a prominent PR firm in NYC. She’s worked with large brands and small brands to help them manage their image and reputation.
How do you go about building a reputation when you’ve got zero experience? How do you maintain your reputation when you’ve found success? And what do you do when a mistake is made, and your reputation comes crashing down?
After several years in the PR world, she decided to move back south and open her own wedding planning company. Obsessed with the PR business's events side, she quickly grew her event planning studio into the top company in the area. But she noticed something was missing.
It was at that moment that Bustld was born–out of a deep desire to serve others and solve a problem she and her husband saw in the industry. They changed the way engaged couples and vendors discover one another, and the rest is history.
In today's episode of The Power in Purpose Podcast with Samie Roberts of Bustld, we discuss:
