Women entrepreneurs who want to become a celebrity in their field, so that they can get widely known – and highly paid – for doing what they do best, can now visit http://thenextbigbuzzevent.com and register for leading marketing and social media strategist Mara Glazer’s all-new “The Next Big Buzz” event in Baltimore from August 2-4, 2013.

The 3-day event, which will be held at the Hilton Baltimore Camden Yards, features a full slate of high-energy interactive presentations and workshops that promise to transform attendees into “Buzzworthy Biz Babes.” Key topics that Mara Glazer and her team of hand-picked presenters will focus upon include:

  • How to create more buzz in a business by thinking like a celebrity.
  • How to finally demystify online marketing, the web and social media channels to explode a business and capture more leads.
  • How to create a business that supports a desirable and healthy work-life balance – while still bringing in serious income.

In addition, attendees will have ample opportunity throughout the event to network with over 200 successful entrepreneurs in order to find new clients, create joint venture partnerships, and get to know some extremely influential connections.

“This event is for women entrepreneurs who want to get known — and get paid! – for doing what they do best,” commented Mara Glazer, who will also reveal the secrets that enabled her to generate and translate an enormous amount of buzz into multiple 6-figure businesses in less than a year. “It’s also perfect for those who have reached a point where they seriously need to cut the crap when it comes to small business marketing, and get real about what it takes to succeed as a Buzzworthy entrepreneur.”

“Lots of experts only talk about becoming successful – but Mara shows you how,” noted Robin Samora, the principal of Boston-based PR firm Robin Samora Inc., who is an event sponsor and presenter. “She’s all about implementation, action and results. She tells people what they need to know — not just what they want to know. And just as importantly, she’s incredibly fun and inspiring.”

Speaking of her reputation for being fun and inspiring, Miss Glazer also had some comforting words for those who dread so-called professional development events that are little more than boring lectures from talking heads: “Make no mistake: this isn’t three days of being glued to a chair! This event is going to be a party. Yes, we’ll be giving out amazing content, but those fortunate enough to attend will also get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to network, let their hair down, and definitely shake their booty!”

Women entrepreneurs who aspire to be Buzzworthy Biz Babes and reap the rewards of living amazing and successful lives — both professionally and personally — can register for Mara Glazer’s The Next Big Buzz at: http://thenextbigbuzzevent.com/. The registration fee is $697.

MILTON —Strategist Robin Samora helps professionals, entrepreneurs and small businesses with the launch of her new personal coaching business Let’s Make You Shine. The Milton resident started the business coaching service last June, as part of her event planning and marketing firm Partner Promotions Inc.

During her 20-year career as a business strategist, Samora worked with many large corporations. But she said she started Let’s Make You Shine as a way to give back to aspiring entrepreneurs who need solid business advice.

Samora reviews different aspects of a client’s business, including what is being done in the marketplace and how her clients are presenting themselves. Samora goes a step further to develop a rapport with her clients to help manage their day-to-day struggles as well as their long-term goals.

“I help people that are ready to make a difference and do something big with their life,” Samora said. “That’s the kind of person that I like to work with. I’ve worked a lot with my own coaches … and I think that’s what really opened my eyes, is learning about really what’s serving you in your life and what’s not.”

Samora meets with her clients for a couple of two-hour sessions each month, and tries to hold her clients accountable for sticking with the strategic plans they develop.

Samora has been taking her business savvy on the road by hosting a business strategy tour, a series of informal talks at coffee houses throughout the Boston area.

The events are coined “Make Money Mondays” and are part of her push to spread the word about her new business. Samora’s tours finish at the end of June but will resume in September.

“I’ve worked with all different kinds of people to help motivate them, to get them where they need to go,” Samora said. “When they finish with me, my goal is for them to see themselves in such a different light and they are just beside themselves, so happy.”

Milton, MA…Business and Life Strategist, Robin Samora, recently interviewed celebrity photographer, Nikki Incandela from La Jolla, California on her monthly interview series.  The title was Put Some Pizzazz in Your Picture: What Your Image Says About You.

Nikki spoke about the importance of images in your personal branding. “With the prominence of Facebook and other social media, consistent branding is very important for your on-line presence and distinguishes you in the marketplace,” she said.  Nikki also offered some pointers on the different ways to use your image in your marketing and collateral, and shared her vast experience about being comfortable in front of a camera, style, and how to have an image that “attracts business.”

“A bad image can follow you for years,” said Nikki, “but a great image makes you confident and empowers you in your professional and personal life.  You have about four seconds to create an impression to say who you are as a person.”

“Nikki incorporates an important lesson I’m offering,” said Robin.  “No risk, no reward. Go for it. Don’t wait for someone to discover you. Put yourself out there and celebrate your brand – and  pretend it’s bigger than it is. If you do what it takes, you’ll grow into your new shoes. Nikki works at her public image using networking, social media, and she is a fabulous photographer,” continues Robin. “She also aligns herself with who she is, and where she wants to go!”

Incandela, who started as a fashion designer, was just at the Oscars not only to shoot the most glamorous Hollywood stars as they came down the runway but also had an opportunity to get fitted for a couture dress to wear at the gala event.

“Nikki and I have been working together informally for a couple of years,” said Robin, “but recently – she made a decision to make it big. I see fireworks in what she’s doing. It’s a combination of her inner flame, talent, and doing what she loves. Nothing makes me happier.”

About Robin Samora

Robin’s career began in advertising and then transitioned to media buying in the film industry. She owned two restaurants, became a Major League Baseball licensee, and worked in cable television as an Event and Promotions Manager – with major networks such as ESPN, HGTV, CNN, and MTV.  Robin eventually started her own company in 2002, Partner Promotions, a

Brand Ambassador firm for Fortune 500 companies like Comcast, Tivo, and NBC, marketing products and services – one-on-one in the retail sector, at business events, and in the community.

Wanting to utilize her talents, and years of coaching experience, Robin realized she loved working one on one, with clients, entrepreneurs and small businesses – not just major corporations.  She couldn’t help but notice that she would attract people who wanted to talk, and ask her advice. It became clear to her and those who sought Robin out for her insight, wisdom and advice — that she would be a “calm voice of reason, in a storm,” and provide a path for “next steps” to get recognized and promoted in the marketplace.

With years of business knowledge under her belt, Robin launched — Let’s Make You Shine a business and life strategy company for entrepreneurs who want to boost their bottom line, get attention and stand out in the marketplace. Now, Robin takes great pleasure in teaching others how to realize their dreams and potential, while also making a difference.

Let’s Make You Shine has been created with more than two decades in business development, operations and execution, sales and marketing, and extensive professional training. It’s Robin’s mission to help her clients make more profit, share their gifts and passion with the world, and get recognized for who they really are.

Robin Samora, Business & Life Strate gist, discussed ways to use your brilliance to boost your bottom line at a gathering for small business owners and entrepreneurs at the Citizen’s Bank in East Milton on February 15.

The group was eager to learn from Samora, a successful entrepreneur who has launched two companies and makes it her mission to help small business owners make more profits, get more attention, and stand out in a crowded marketplace.

Robin, who has worked with major Fortune 500 companies promoting products and services, wanted to utilize her talents and years of business experience, realizing that she loved working one on one with clients and small businesses.
