cricepr Quote via #TheSeptemberIssue which (gasp!) is my first time seeing while in flight back to NYC. Grace is whom I most identified with, the passion and love she puts in her worth. But then the steely determination in which Anna Wintour runs that magazine and their push to make that one September issue the best in its 100+ history, I most identify with as well. I push my team, but I also push myself. We don't settle for mediocrity and I tell them we're only as good as our last big placement, our success is measured in where our work is placed. Then today I get word a client pitch to O Magazine has transpired into an editor personally walking that pitch to OWN. Mediocrity? Nope, don't know anything about that.... 1w

Borderland chronicles the journey of six Americans who retrace the steps of three migrants who died crossing the US-Mexico border.

cricepr #EventDay. Dress #DKNY, Shoes #PourLaVictoire, Jeweled belt #Anthropologie, Trusty event crossover bag #ZacPosen. I wish I had pics to share of me lounging at the pool or a chic dinner with my girls but nah, none of that took place on this trip, I've barely left the hotel room during the day and client meetings at night. We've been grinding, planned a screening in less than 7 days with over 200 names on the list. #working #luxelifeevents 1w

cricepr I should be sleep...yes. These days I'm up at 5am ish, in the office at 7/8am out around 9:30, home by 10:30. So I have an hour or so before I get in the bed, back up at 5am, that's maybe 4 hours of sleep. So as I'm winding down, quieting my mind from the to-do's of tomorrow (an event each week for the next three weeks in different states, starting Thursday) I see this gem. No particular thought process to it but sometimes when you wear a cape, businesswoman, girlfriend/wife/mom, caretaker, whatever superwoman we all can be, it's nice to read, but also feel and be reminded that you are loved for what and who you are. #rp @mashondatifrere 2w

cricepr JH - took the words right out of my mouth. Thank you --- by @jermainehall "Yesterday afternoon I experienced one of the most impactful scenarios of my career. Sounds like an overstatement but it isn't. I watched a girl sob through most of her interview for consideration to be part of WEEN's four-week program. Her crying never halted her pitch, however. Through tears she continued to make her case. The young lady answered hard questions as the panel dug for one answer. Why WEEN? She had the strong desire but lacked the confidence and strength to declare that her parents' dream for her career wasn't hers. What WEEN does for these young women seeking to make a mark in the entertainment industry is so necessary. The knowledge they will receive through the academy is important but installing those ladies with self confidence is priceless. Thanks for the invite Valeisha. It was a pleasure being part of the process with brilliant and compassionate crew @janellanowden @tashamarbury @getkristilluv @cricepr @staceylee32 @janaye_ingram @laurenlakeent @spicepr @aikiashholly and @latashakennedy. Looking forward to what's next. #WEEN" via @PhotoRepost_app 3w

cricepr A little bit of cuteness and (history) for your Friday musing ---by @becauseofthem ""A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men." - Gloria Steinem
Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman Hughes are women's and civil rights activists. Together they created Ms. Magazine in 1971 to help raise awareness for social justice along with gender and race equality. Their photo (which this one was inspired by) hangs in the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute and was created to symbolize feminist solidarity.

cricepr C. Rice story time... Let me tell you something about paying your dues and getting your foot in the door. I posted this last week and met with a young lady I really liked. Her previous positions were all internships but she hasn't worked since November. I told her look, I take care of my staff, not a slave driver, you won't be interning for a year, heck you may only intern for a for a few weeks and knowing the projects I have in que, that can change overnight as I am anticipating I'll need to grow the team. I said just get your foot in the door. Well she told me she was only interested in a paid position and to call her if I had any opportunities in the future. A few days later I signed 3 new contracts....and I need staff....welp. As a small business, if you won't invest in me, how do you expect me to invest in you. And trust, PR positions are not easy to attain, competition is fierce. Now who wants an internship? #lovemyteam #wehustling 3w

cricepr I'm so anti-bandwagon as in posting the same pic everyone else is but my take is I haven't purchased a Vogue in a gazillion years but I will be getting this one. #voguewins #kimyewins.
