Episode 111: How To BOSS UP And Take Charge of Your Career w/ Nyle Washington

If you’re trying to build a powerhouse career and BOSS up in the professional world, how do you do it? One of the things that I love about the #dreamsindrive community is that we are so diverse. Although a lot of us may have our own companies or want to eventually be entrepreneurs at some point, we don’t all fit into that demographic. There are some dream drivers who have career aspirations outside of entrepreneurship. Despite what your journey looks like (or how you want it to look), the thing that brings us all together are our stories of RESILIENCE, HUSTLE & DRIVE.  Public relations expert Nyle Washington opens up about her #dreamdriving journey and how she was able to build a career that spanned working at VH1, STARZ, & HBO.

Nyle discusses how she was able to build a 15 year legacy as a public relations professional in the television and entertainment industry.  She has worked at Susan Blond Inc, VH1 and Starz and currently serves as Director of Media Relations at HBO, where she oversees media relations and publicity for several of the network’s specials, along with select drama and comedy series.

Nyle talks about how she got her foot in the door early on as an intern, the key to career growth, knowing when to move on, the art of cultivating relationships, work/life balance, publicity lessons for growing brands, and much more!
