I often used to feel like I hadn’t been accepted or that I didn’t fit in with my family, my friends or just society in general. However, I recognise now, that fortunately it was a symptom of my depression. I say fortunately because I realise I needed to reclaim, my power over my thoughts and with some great Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Techniques I have managed to overcome these destructive thought processes. I keep saying I have been sent some amazing women recently and one of these Women is Nicola who owns a company called FP Comms, a marketing and PR agency.
I have had PR before and unfortunately, I was one of those people who just handed over money without realizing that nothing is ever promised. £3000 later I was very disappointed and actually didn’t believe in its worth. FP Comms has turned that opinion around over the last few months and together they have helped me develop my brand (as well as some amazing life lessons).
FP Comms is an agency for people like me, with big dreams and a great goal. The company’s focus is on communicating for those voices – which they call emerging leading brands, but with a twist. Your ethics around sustainability, equality, fair pay and wellbeing has to be as equally as important as your cash flow. FP Comms does not compromise on challenging the status quo, whilst helping you communicate your business and brand in a positive and effective way.
As a company, FP Comms recognises the need to be a business that helps elevate the voices of businesses that are doing amazing jobs and building fantastic enterprises, but are marginalised because they are not the sexy, hottest thing or are not the angle mainstream press wants to promote. Nicola is literally one of those people who I say is breaking down doors for the rest of us and now she will be giving you the opportunity to get some guidance.
At present a lot of people feel like the mainstream media is reporting fake news and people are looking for the real people that actually exist in the world, not just the people with heavy social media followings. FP Comms started the #IAm Masterclasses last year as a platform to hear honest stories and has now launched the #IAM Challenge (social media competition). The challenge has been developed to help people come up with short sentences that sum up:
- One thing about their business
- One thing about Founder/Leader
- And how you will impact the world
Now I may not be applying for the competition (as I am a client J), however, I have still decided to participate in the challenge because to be able to sum up these 3 points is actually a business marketing tool. The only thing you need to do is put up the #IAm Challenge with the above statements and you can win:
- A 3-hour consultation with Nicola Director of FP Comms worth £720
- A mini marketing plan for 12 months
- Free logo/ animation consultation and design with me worth £200
If you’re like me and you need the help then go and join the challenge, I was never for competitions before but recently I received some freebies from Nivea that made me realise you can only win when you participate. Good Luck and let me know when you’ve applied below.
