[REGISTER] Let’s Get Social: A Comprehensive Social Media Workshop For Small Business Owners & Creatives

Simien Media Group (my public relations and media agency) is proud to announce its first workshop of the year, Let’s Get Social!

If your brand is not a regular on social media not only are you severely behind the times, you’re completely missing out.

Jackson, MS native and founder of The Chosen Productions, Essence Wallace, is returning to her hometown for a very special holiday event.
