Can you imagine creating not one, but two successful businesses? Elizabeth Reed did just that. While earning her Master’s degree at Norfolk State University, she worked as an event coordinator for the college radio station. This experience inspired her to create her company The Event Planner.
Elizabeth’s love and pride for her community runs deep, and she wanted to showcase the neighborhood. She created Pressplae, a video blog which highlights local talent, music, events, fashion, arts and news. She describes the vlog as “a show designed to positively exploit the unexploited.” She and her crew visit a local business or event weekly, and Pressplae’s episodes recently debuted on Cox11 in Hampton Roads, VA.
As if growing two businesses wasn’t enough, Elizabeth also manages #LocalLove, a successful pop-up shop. It sells the local brands, art, photography, clothing, and jewelry featured in Pressplae episodes.
