Hello! Who are you and what business did you start?
Hey, thank you so much for reading my interview on Starter Story! My name is Isaac Mashman. I’m a podcast host, speaker, and the founder of Mashman Ventures, a public relations firm. Unlike many other PR firms that offer press features and company-related work, we specialize in helping people who want to be followed, in-demand, and respected create unrivaled personal brands. More on that later.
What's your backstory and how did you come up with the idea?
I don’t want to spend too much time talking about my past, but I didn’t come from money or a “white-picket-fence” home. Born in Jacksonville, Florida, I remember seeing my mom slave for a paycheck, working at fast-food restaurants that had obnoxious shifts. Although she was way overqualified, she did her best to raise me as a single parent. My grandparents played a large role in my early years, but even then nobody was entrepreneurial. I actually remember waking up early in the mornings with my grandmother to take my grandpa to work at the cabinet shop. After school, we would go pick him up.
