One of my goals for this year is to be featured in major media outlets like Forbes, Entrepreneur and Men's Health. 

It's a massive goal...I know. 

But luckily, I have Gwen Elliot on my side. (I’ll tell you a bit more about Gwen a little later.)

Why is this so important, you may ask?

Well, if you’re not getting media attention you’re missing out on a huge opportunity because mainstream media coverage is the ultimate ‘turning pro’ moment.

Not only does it get your message out to the masses, but it creates massive buzz around what you’re doing. 
 

"This is not all about you. This is about reaching your people."
 

It’s time to stop being the best kept secret. And this is where Gwen comes in. 

Gwen is amazing at getting you (and your business) out of obscurity by helping you land your big break through mainstream media.

She's helped her clients get featured in places like Forbes, Cosmo, Virgin, Entrepreneur on Fire, and MarketWatch. 
 

"There's nothing like the high of getting featured in a media outlet that you love."
 

All it really comes down to is knowing where to find the right people (editors/publishers/producers) and knowing how to approach them effectively. 

If you think about how many pitches these people are getting, you'll realize that you need to have the right approach if you want to stand out and stand a chance at getting any type of consideration. 
 

"I'm here today to tell you that it's not as hard as you think it is. If you send out a well crafted email to the right editor or producer, with a helpful message, they will want to interview you. They are always looking for new and exciting stories to share."
 

So, I called in a favour from my friend Gwen and she agreed to share exactly how she's able to get her clients (and herself!) featured in mainstream media time and time again. 

Once Gwen explained her method, I was shocked at how simple it seemed. Now I can’t wait to begin making waves in the press myself.

Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Men’s Health…here I come!
