Once upon a time, I stood infront of a news camera all day every day for 10 years as a reporter and anchor. I covered everything from devastating crimes to sports championships… even interviewing a Jersey Shore star in a tanning bed. While I was doing this, I had two kids and needed a better schedule with less rushing to and from daycare dropoff and work, so I started my own business.
Suddenly, I was working 14 hours a day as a one-person sales team, marketer, publicist, content creator, and bookkeeper. I didn’t know what I was doing. My income was inconsistent which caused me to work even more and led to lots of stress. I was miserable.
Luckily, I hired a business coach to guide me in the right direction. Within months, I started to make more money on a consistent basis and my team began to grow.
A couple of years later, I was able to remove myself from the day to operations of my business and I started another business that complimented the first one.
Oh yeah, and I had another child.
Many moms feel guilty for taking time out to visit the spa, read a good book, or binge reality TV, but not me... and I have three kids! I do what I want when I want, and I don’t care what anyone thinks about it.
You can find us out and about around South Florida acting like tourists when we’re not at home enjoying movie night.
I worked as a TV reporter and anchor for more than 10 years in markets as small as Beaumont and Fort Myers and as big as Miami and New York City.
In 2015, I launched Media Maven, a media relations and content marketing agency. In less than five years, I've grown it to a one-million dollar business with a team of 11.
After seeing a need in the market for a podcast database to help publicists and thought leaders create podcast pitch lists, I founded Podcast Clout… and launched it in the middle of a pandemic.
I did all of the above while having and raising three kids at home – Julianna, Landon, and Dylan. One thing I never felt? Mom guilt.
I've turned my love of creating content and oversharing what helps me run my life as a business owner and a mom of three into one of the most impactful and captivating blogs online today, Christina All Day.
Along with the blog, I have a podcast, Become a Media A Maven, which shares a behind the scenes look of the media industry for other boss moms.
You can still see me in front of the camera as a host on Lifetime TV, in national commercials, on the TEDx stage, and read my work online in Huff Post, Thrive Global, Inc. Magazine, Business Insider, Fast Company, and Boss Babe. I was selected as an Oprah Magazine Insider and Ambassador out of thousands of applicants.
