I’ll start out by saying, I LOVE my job! I’ve always been a people person and enjoy helping people make their dreams come true. Working in the entertainment industry as a publicist and talent manager is a perfect job for me. I am really blessed to work with some of the most talented people in the industry. Unfortunately, because I work with people around the globe, I don’t always get to meet them in person. Sometimes its years before I meet with clients that live far away. However, this past week I got to meet with four of my clients in Los Angeles. Yay! I was only there for six days and everyone was busy so my time was limited with some. Even still, I could not have been happier with the clients I was able to meet.
I’ll start with Carlos Villalobos Jr. www.AlistarRecords.com This guy is brilliant! Of course I knew that before physically meeting him but after spending time with him it was undeniable that he oozes creativity. He is super witty, hilarious, and down to Earth. Carlos already could retire and be proud of everything he’s done in his life. He has loads of success under his belt but he is not the type of person to slow down. This extraordinary man will do great things! Follow him via Twitter @Loslobosjr and on Instagram @CVMusic to learn more about him.
Next, is my friend Oliver Trevena. He is just a remarkable man. At a young age he’s an entrepreneur that still takes time to help fight human trafficking and stand behind various causes. Despite all his success he hasn’t let it go to his head. His humble and endearing personality makes him very relatable. Exactly the type of person I love to work with. Plus, he’s easy on the eyes 🙂 www.OliverTrevena.com
Oscar Manuel Ponce is not so much my client as he is my partner with both my organization and McCaffery Media Group. I have loved working with him for almost two years now. Oscar is the type of guy that always has kind words. Whenever things get stressful I can depend on him to send some positivity my way. I hope I do the same for him. When I got to meet up with him he was tired from his flight and had two concerts to perform at that very evening. Even so, he took time to go to lunch with me and chat. He is one of the most dependable people in my life and I am so blessed to have him as a partner. I honestly can’t say enough good things about him. www.OscarPonceOfficial.com
Last, is the amazing Jordan W. Clark. I saved him for last because I got to spend more time with him then the others. Jordan is a model, professional gamer, impressionist and actor. He’s really multi-talented and could very well excel in any career path he chose. He can sing and play guitar. He’s a fitness trainer & mentor. I can’t think of much he can’t do. With his ongoing positive outlook and optimism, he’s the type of person you would want to be your best friend. It’s impossible to be around him for any amount of time and not get inspired and motivated. The majority of people who know me are aware of my battle with Lupus SLE and the toll the treatments took on my body. 2015 was literally one of the worse years of my life. I spent a huge amount of time in and out of the hospital or doctors offices. I feel like I was used as a guinea pig as doctors tried to find medicines to help me. Within 6 months I put on 50 lbs from the stress, fatigue, and medications. I became secluded and extremely depressed. At times, I thought about throwing in the towel and giving up on my hopes and dreams. For the first time in my life I was insecure with myself and didn’t want to even look in the mirror. I heard Jordan’s story before when I first started working for him but at the time things were just starting to go down hill with my health. It wasn’t until I hit the lowest of low that I really let his story sink in and inspire me to make a change. First thing I had to do was get off all the medications the doctors were overloading me on. By Feb 2016 that was done. Then, I asked Jordan to be my trainer/instructor. Within a couple weeks I was already down 10 lbs and feeling like a brand new woman. In case I had any doubt that I couldn’t do it, Jordan reassured me during our time together that I can. It’s a mindset. I have to learn to love myself again and set goals. I have to cut out as much negativity in my life as I can and don’t let anyone stand in the ways of my dreams. It’s funny, because these are things I tell people I help but for some reason I never applied them to myself. Until Jordan that is. Years ago before and a little after becoming a Mommy I modeled like Jordan does now. I met some of the most self centered nasty hearted vain people you can imagine. I still deal with that today working in this industry. Jordan is not like your typical model. He constantly reminds himself of what helped make him who he is today. He’s very grateful to those who helped him get thus far and keeps a humble heart. THAT makes him an all around wonderful person. I watched as he helped the homeless in L.A. He wasn’t putting on a show for cameras or trying to impress anyone. He really has a kind heart and loves helping people. I pray he always remains this way because I believe it’s his key to making a global impact and becoming a huge success. JordawClark.com @JordanWClark on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat & Musical.ly
Needless to say I had a lovely trip that will stay with me forever and taught me a lot. Once again, I am so blessed to work with these incredible people.
