Mark Switzer, Editor in Chief • On The Go Magazine

I have always known that PR is a crucial part to owning and running a business if you want it to be successful. You must have exposure; there are no ands, ifs or buts about it. For the longest time I thought, “Why do we need to pay someone to get more exposure?’ I was on TV, I am famous and gosh darn it. Everybody just LOVES me! I will just post on Facebook.” Yeah well… instead we became aimless and lost in the ‘social-verse.’ Sharyn grabbed us by the scruff of our necks, slap us back into reality and sent us on the path we should have been on all along. She is a force to be reckoned with. Her team knows how and what you need, and make sure you are heard above the noise. Sign up with Eventful PR and you will get noticed!
