How do you go from Corporate America to running your own empire from the comfort of your own home? I talk to successful blogger, mom and marketing strategist Quiana Agbai, founder of Harlem Lovebirds in this episode of Glow with Markette Sheppard, the podcast companion to Glow Stream TV. Listen as you’ll hear how Quiana and I met through a chance encounter and somehow the universe reconnected us once again to talk about how she has created a unique path by walking in her purpose by making a positive social impact through her work at Trifecta Media Group, a marketing, PR, and graphic design firm that she started with her sisters that caters to start-up companies in health & wellness, entertainment, technology and more.
Here’s little more about Quiana:
Quiana Agbai is a Boston-based, Ohio native who has been covering urban family life on her blog Harlem Lovebirds since 2009. A graduate of Wellesley College with 8 years of both ad agency and client-side experience, in 2014 Quiana launched Trifecta Media Group, a marketing, PR, and graphic design firm catering to start-up companies spanning industries such as health and wellness, entertainment and technology products.
Through Quiana’s blog and experience as an entrepreneur she has been invited to speak at social media conferences such as BlogHer, Blogalicious, Mom 2.0 and Altitude Summit covering topics such as privacy, using social media for social change, and using one’s blog to pivot to other business opportunities.
