Hearpreneur – Why did you start your business?

As an entrepreneur, one of the things that I often get asked is: “Why (how and when!) did you start your business?”  Thanks to Hearpreneur, you can read my response here or here:

Because my temporary layoff gave me the push I needed

I started my own company, Bayer Public Relations, in October 2003 after being temporarily laid off from a new job because work was slow. I had always wanted to have my own business, so I used this temporary layoff as my motivation to start my own agency. It’s been over nine years since I founded Bayer Public Relations, a full-service public relations, consulting and marketing agency specializing in culinary and hospitality, and I have never looked back. Bayer Public Relations is a company built on dedication, integrity and positive thinking, combined with a genuine passion for what we do. We have invaluable experience in the fields we represent, and we excel at creating compelling, results-oriented campaigns for our clients based on their specific goals. Based in the heart of Manhattan, we have developed strong relationships with top media and industry leaders, and we continue to grow our network. We understand that our clients want to “B Seen. B Heard. B Known.” and we know how to make this happen. It takes hard work, discipline and strong work ethic to start and run a business, but it’s extremely rewarding because it is your own. I encourage anyone who is driven to be self-employed, simply to go for it!
