Boss Talk with Ren PR CEO Alexis Woody
We recently had the pleasure to speak with Alexis Woody, the CEO of Ren PR. Alexis is an expert when it comes to social media, market relations, and public relations. After working with various brands–large and small–in the manufacturing and hospitality industry for over four years, Alexis founded Ren PR, a public relations company that provides "modern-day marketing for those who believe in themselves and their brand."
The Creation Of Ren PR
In January 2019, I was applying for jobs in NYC. I reached out to professional organizers to explore my opportunities there, and one of them was in need of a social media manager. Thus began the start of Ren PR.
The Story Behind The Name Ren PR
Ren is short for my middle name, Renée. Originally, my business name was AR PR, for "Alexis Renée" Public Relations. I love the simplicity of Ren, and it leaves no room to be misspelled or mispronounced.
Ren PR’s Mission
I'd love to connect with entrepreneurs and business owners to help them realize their potential and achieve their goals. I would like to step down from the day-to-day client work and manage my team in the next year.
Her Thoughts On Work-Life Balance & How She Achieves It In Her Everyday Life
100% YES! Work-life balance is key to your mental health. I can do better, but I do aim for work/life balance by setting work hours each day and taking off weekends. I do admin work for my business or learning and development on weekends only.
My morning routine really sets the tone for my day. I follow Amy Landino's method from her book Good Morning, Good Life by incorporating movement, mindfulness, and mastery in my routine. I enjoy a Melissa Wood Health flow and walk the family dog, Bear, to get in my movement. I listen to podcasts or practice Spanish for mastery, and meditate for mindfulness. I usually trade breakfast for lemon water (intermittent fasting).
Her Definition Of Success
My definition of success is waking up every day with a positive outlook and plans to help someone else. Genuine happiness is priceless, and I believe serving others is the ultimate life fulfillment.
The Most Rewarding Moment In Business
The most rewarding moment in business has been a tie between my rebrand and site launch, and the outpouring of support from clients, family, and friends over the last two years. It feels really great when you're doing something right.
Advice For Aspiring Entrepreneurs
The advice I have for aspiring entrepreneurs is to evaluate the opportunity cost of starting your business. Time is going to pass regardless of if you start today, or in 5 years. You might as well start now! Just be realistic with yourself and set SMART goals so you can hold yourself accountable.
