Welcome to another episode of The Beef! Joining us today is Ross Winkler with Winkler Public Relations. Listeners will hear the story of how Ross’s parents recruited him from minor league baseball to join the family business, why he chose PR as a career, and the three specialties that his parent’s company focuses on. Ross gets candid about some of the hurdles that occur for the business, which mainly center around understanding their bandwidth as a small business, and shares how COVID-19 has pushed their business into more of a digital space. He describes his client base as mainly small businesses and economic development organizations and tells us why he requires that all new clients are as committed to their goals as the business will be. Listeners will hear Ross’s advice for all business owners and come to understand why it’s so important to have crisis management in place, before we ask Ross what sets Winkler apart from other PR businesses. Join us today to hear all this and more!
