This week we are featuring Samuel Anthony Harwit, the President of PUBLICpr and a social media influencer. We love that Samuel has overcome self-doubt and fears to pursue his dreams. Learn more about Samuel…
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
First job: Barista at a local coffee shop, it was a job that taught me about hard work, responsibility and the importance of humility.
Favorite AZ restaurant: Snooze, it’s really quite simple: breakfast. pot. pie.
Person who has impacted your life the most: Erik Velasquez has had the most tremendous impact on my life since the day he walked into it. He has taught me so much, but most importantly he has taught me patience and how to love.
Your biggest accomplishment in your eyes: Having a thriving blog with engaged social communities. I have spent most of my career building brands for other people, and I have found it beyond rewarding to cultivate one for myself.
The biggest obstacle you have overcome: Self doubt, I was always getting in my own way worrying if I could achieve my goals. As soon as I stopped wasting time doubting myself, I began conquering my fears and pursuing my dreams.
Someone who inspires you: My mother is someone who truly inspires me, no matter what life has thrown her way she has always stood back up and kept going. Her dedication has always been a source of inspiration to me.
Favorite quote: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. -Confucius
Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: Make a plan before you start creating content. Start by asking yourself, “who am I trying to reach with this,” followed by, “how do I need to write/create this content to appeal to my target demo?”
What makes someone fabulous: Nothing makes someone more fabulous than confidence!
