I’m a native Bostonian and have had the pleasure of knowing and loving Boston intimately — from my college days at Boston University, and as a more than frequent visitor having worked and played within an hour of the city for most of my adult life.
At 24, I launched my first real business in Boston (a lobby stand called Robbie’s Lobby in the garment district) which led me to open a small restaurant at the Boston Marine Industrial Park. Little did I know then, that I would be drawn to learn marketing, sales and PR in the cable television world, work with the Boston Red Sox and Major League Baseball, and start a PR and promotions company that works with Fortune 500 companies and helps experts across the country get recognized for their greatness.
Though I love to travel, I’m still a one city girl. I love Boston.
Somehow, when bad things happen to a place you love, you can’t help but love it more. And, from the front row of the VIP grandstand at the Marathon bombing, when your life and those you love are at risk, love becomes more important as loss looks you in the eye.
Closer than many, I saw Boston Strong — defending our city, our wounded and above all, our freedom.
I was inspired this morning by a friend who told me that “love isn’t love until you give it away.”
Let’s send and share our love with those who make Boston Strong, day after day.
Let’s send PR love to a city that bounced back after tragedy — with a fearless attitude.
Let’s send PR love to Boston, a city that has its twinkle back — for the world to see.
After all, ‘love isn’t love until you give it away.”
