Amy Flurry, Recipe for Press

Why You Started Your Business:
Amy spent 18 years working as a contributor to some of the biggest publications on the newsstands and online, including InStyle, Conde Nast Traveler, Lucky, Country Living, Design Sponge and Daily Candy. She decided to write Recipe For Press, to demystify PR from the point of view of an editor, particularly for small businesses and entrepreneurs who need valuable press but can't afford a publicist. In Recipe for Press, Amy shares valuable insider knowledge with creative entrepreneurs bringing fresh perspective to PR and in-house communications.

What Your Business Does:
Recipe For Press specializes in helping entrepreneurs learn how to pitch their story to press on their own and expect results and how to create relationships with editors so that their brand keeps a constant presence in the press.

How You've Helped Makers:
Amy has given workshops and lectures across the country to motivate creative entrepreneurs to get their story out there, empowering them with the tools and insider knowledge to give them confidence to pitch and get their story out there.

Your Best Piece of Advice:
Photography is everything. Great photos will not only grab editors' attention, but they'll also be ready to use for the Web and in their magazines -- win-win! When in doubt, choose a white background!

Dave Conrey, The Fresh Rag Show

Why You Started Your Business:
I started this business because working in a cube the rest of my life was just not going to satisfy me, and I felt a calling for a higher purpose.

What Your Business Does:
The Fresh Rag helps other creative entrepreneurs do what they do by producing content that talks to their wants and needs, whether that's blog posts, books, or podcast conversations with other professionals.

How You've Helped Makers:
By sharing the wisdom and experience of others on my show, I've tried to enlighten people to the possibilities of living a successful creative life. Success is determined by the individual, but I believe there's knowledge to be gained from each conversation, if we're willing to listen.

Your Best Piece of Advice:
Find the true purpose behind the work you do and use that as your true north point of reference. If something you're working on does not fall within that purpose, maybe it's time to rethink it.
