How to start a business when you don’t know anyone
How to write a book
The top things you need to do to get PR and the big mistakes people make
Rafael's vision for the future
Everyone is PRable. But you need to do it right:
Have a tangible story - you need to have a cool story that ideally has some concrete metrics behind it that can people can understand and this will help a journalist tell a story
Choose your one thing - To get press journalists want to have a succint 50 word summary. make it easy for them and focus on one thing that you are an expert at that you want to be known for. If you try and do multiple things at once you just end up in a mess that doesn’t go anywhere. This is a wider lesson for life as well as your PR
Everything gets easier
A number of times Rafael was challenged but he embraced the difficulties and fears and they all become much easier over time. He was challenged starting his first business, and every business after that. He was challenged by writing a book. He was challenged by living in the UK. The pain goes and it’s important to remember that and not let our fears and difficulties overcome us.
