Today in the guest chair is Dreena Whitfield, the founder of WhitPR, a New Jersey-based boutique strategic communications firm.

Dreena has had an amazing and diverse career thus far, which has spanned spearheading communications and marketing efforts for leaders in the nonprofit, corporate and political sectors, as well as small businesses throughout the TriState Area.

Her clients have been featured on Good Morning America, in The New York Times, Essence, and more.

You may be familiar with WhitPR client The Budgetnista, who has graced The Side Hustle Pro guest chair, and has made several appearances on The Real Daytime television show.

On today’s episode, we learn how Dreena started WhitPR in her living room in 2009; with no clients, no media contacts, and no mentors, the side job she worked for years to invest in her business during the early stages, and what side hustlers need to know about when and how to get press for your business when you’re just getting started.

Meet the host:

Nicaila Matthews-Okome

Hi! I’m Nicaila, the Creator and Host of the Side Hustle Pro Podcast. I started Side Hustle Pro when I was a side hustler myself. I was a digital marketer at NPR by day, side hustler by night. Through the powerful stories shared on this show and the courage to launch my own initiatives, I was able to quit my own job and go full time with Side Hustle Pro.
