Shria Miller is a good friend that I met when I began working at Morrison Management Specialists (then Morrison Healthcare) in 1996. She and I bonded immediately when I found out that her family owns and operates Groucho’s Deli in Columbia. Her dad became “Groucho” after her grandfather passed the business on to him and now her brother runs the business. Her mom Faye is the quintessential Jewish mother who I absolutely adore! Groucho’s is an institution that any USC student can tell you is THE place to get a great sandwich. My favorite is and always will be the STP. The proprietary “45″ sauce that comes with it is INCREDIBLE. I thought one of the benefits of our friendship might be the recipe for the “45.” It wasn’t. I can buy it from Groucho’s like everyone else. But I digress…
Shira was Director of Marketing Communications for Morrison prior to my joining the marketing team when I still worked for Wyatt Engwall — the absolute best boss and mentor I’ve had. Since leaving Morrison in 1998, Shira has held high profile positions with several firms. She launched SMC in 2001 and has been very successful.
I will be helping her on several fronts…but initially I’ll focus on social media marketing (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with Shira! She is highly respected PR and marketing consultant and, obviously, a very successful entrepreneur. I can learn a lot!
Just ended a conference call with my good friend Shira Miller. It was a conference call because we talked about business rather than “life.” Shira owns Shira Miller Communications, a PR and marketing firm, based here in Atlanta and she has just hired me as a part-time freelancer for her firm. I will be working about 10 hours a week with her and have already received my first assignments list. More on all of this later.
