ready to uplevel?

No matter your immediate career goal – to find your next job, get promoted at your current job, or figure out if want to go out on your own – you’re in the right place.

Inside the Coterie are the tools to elevate your skill-set, expand your connections and experience powerful personal and professional growth so you can meet and exceed your goals (with the fancy title, flush bank account and loyal following that comes with).

It’s basically like having a VIP pass to all of PR Couture’s courses and resources PLUS your own very own coach and mentor.

ready for the truth about working in PR?

This field moves at breakneck speed as we scramble to keep up with client expectations, harness media opportunities and solve for last-minute changes (are there any other kind?). 

Because of the pace and, let’s be real, competition for clients and coverage, it’s rare that we receive the mentorship, training and guidance necessary to both navigate our to-do list and tend to our professional dreams.

So we spend our days well caffeinated and working hard, trying to out-perform our latest win, have the genius idea, get the recognition and training to hustle our way up the ladder.

Even if we absolutely love the work, PR operates inside a pressure cooker of sorts – we get so used to the ever-pressing need to prove ourselves, the stress, the anxiety – that we may not even notice that we’ve lost ourselves in the process – that we are treading water when we should be the captain of our own gorgeous yacht.

Many of us got into this work because we are smart, strategic and creative AND we love helping others. And, when combined with the ways so many of us have been raised with perfectionistic, people-pleasing tendencies (raises hand), we create a dangerous recipe for deriving our worth FROM our work, our value FROM our results, where we hesitate to disrupt, to speak up, to advocate for ourselves first. 

Sound at all familiar?

We think we are alone in these challenges – that everybody else has it figured out (we are so good at turning on the charisma and smizing our way through, aren’t we). We think we should be able to solve any problem, bust through any obstacle, make the right decision, all without asking for help.

Commendable? Sure.

Sustainable? Not even a little bit.

Here’s the rub: in order to work on the career-making campaigns, negotiate the high-ticket salaries and create the kind of work-life-balance you’re craving, you need skills, strategy AND a magnetic mindset.

Here’s the secret: We all need help to learn what we don’t know AND to bust through our own mental blocks. Behind every successful business woman is a series of financial investments to learn the tools and develop the mindset necessary to take control of her professional destiny. From executive coaches, masterminds, and VIP tickets to network with other leaders – community and support ARE what it takes to become a true leaders, to have your inner landscape match your outer results.

This is what you learn to do inside the Coterie.

Imagine…

  • Securing consistent, results-driving wins by learning and implementing the strategies that actually work for today's landscape (hello career confidence)
  • A "one-to-watch" reputation thanks to a stellar personal brand that regularly brings dream collaborations and connections your way (grab the mic)
  • Watching your bank account get extra cushy, your vacation fund grow and, okay, your shoe collection get a little extra - thanks to finally getting paid for all these skills (see ya salary woes)
  • Successfully navigating tough professional situations and personalities with ease including asking for a raise and "crazy" clients (nothing phases you - it's #handled)
  • Total work-life balance most days because you've learned to put yourself first while still tending to your PR-iorities (you've got room for dating AND meal prep)
  • Always having a safe place to problem solve (and vent!) thanks to your dream professional network filled with smart, driven and KIND humans to call your very own (you've found your people)

Hey it's me Crosby

Founder of PR Couture and Queen of the Coterie

I'd like to be your mentor. really.

The lines between marketing, public relations and advertising are more blurred than ever before; we find ourselves not only focusing on press coverage, but adopting the role of content producer, social media ads manager and influencer contract negotiator.

Add to that our own career goals – to lead and manage teams, to start our own thing, change industries, strike a better work life balance, and it’s no wonder PR in particular regularly end up on “most stressful jobs” lists.

For more than ten years I have made it my mission to make the world of PR a bit more accessible, a bit less Devil Wears Prada-y. From writing the career bible to breaking into fashion PR (Ready to Launch) to hundreds of articles, podcast interviews, panels and keynote speeches, as well as career and business coaching, my career is showing up, day after day, to do whatever I can to help make your professional journey a bit easier (and more fun).

Our industry is evolving too quickly for any of us to keep up with on our own. 

I believe we all have something to learn from each other, that we can each be inspiration for each other, and that we are better, together. (How’s that for defying industry stereotypes?)
