Jacksonville, FL, December 04, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Adding relevance to her education and leisure activities has been second nature to the corporate entry-level manager—turn entrepreneur since childhood. She just finally acted on her intuition and manifested it into a thriving public relations firm.
After a lack of mobility and motivation in a Fortune 500 corporate communications department, 25-year-old Natalie A. Mitchell, decided to take that big plunge into the world of self-employment with business venture, Jazzy Productions, a lifestyle public relations and event planning boutique based in Jacksonville, Florida. Relying solely on immense faith, Mitchell knew that timing, with a well-planned exit strategy would benefit the transition.
“I clearly saw the handwriting on the wall for myself while others couldn’t understand why I wanted to leave a ‘good corporate job’,” Mitchell said. “I knew my time was up and that corporate America was not me…I felt like something was missing because I wasn’t passionate about it at all.”
Mitchell’s ambition as a child that proceeded into adulthood, led her down the entrepreneur path when she was a 21-year-old public relations student at the University of Florida. Adding academic know-how to build the foundation of the firm to her passion for the arts and entertainment industry was only natural and propelled Mitchell to develop a potential lucrative business in that area.
Mitchell said, “I strongly believe in the arts. When I was a kid, I studied three musical instruments and took dance lessons.
“Every opportunity in school for class projects, I always incorporated a rap song or dance routine to creatively explain algebraic equations,” Mitchell said.
It’s obvious that shifting from a comfortable corporate job will include challenges. But Mitchell bases her success on the following key factors: high ambition, self-confidence, perseverance, a supportive network and strategic planning.
Currently, Jazzy PRoductions is a certified Jacksonville Small Emerging Business, which enables the company to bid and conduct business with the city of Jacksonville. The burgeoning firm provides a variety of services that include public relations counsel, media relations, media placement, marketing, press kit preparation and event planning. Some of Jazzy PRoductions’ clients have been featured in national business magazine, NV and will be featured in an upcoming issue of Ebony.
“If you’re seeking an opportunity to create unlimited capital with flexibility, then entrepreneurship is the way to go. Yes it can be an uphill battle, but it’s important to never lose focus of your purpose—something that I learned after reading Richard Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” Mitchell said.
