We had the good fortune of connecting with Angel Tuccy and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Angel, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
We teach entrepreneurs how to create media & publicity by sharing their stories on podcasts, radio, television and online publications. Often times, business owners are so caught up in growing their customer base, they don’t realize the significance of their impact on the community. Yet, small business, even micro businesses, are the back bone of the American economy. They are the ones investing in their hometowns, supporting non profits, and communities. We get to focus on their good news, the milestones, and the successes. When something good happens in their world, I’m one of the first people to get notified so we can create a press release, put together an interview and spread the news. For example, I have clients who are feeding the hungry, being decorated with service awards, and becoming best selling authors. By sharing their stories, they inspire others to shine even brighter, to fight the good fight, and not quit.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My story is full of pivots and overcoming challenges. I almost didn’t graduate high school because I was too nervous to speak in front of my public speaking class. I was told by that teacher that I’d never have a career in radio. I went into broadcasting at the age of 36 and became an award-winning host of 2 back-to-back radio shows, hosting 4 hours of talk radio every day, until I was let go five minutes before we went live. I then decided to go into public speaking and spent the next year speaking on over 100 stages, nationally and internationally. Those are the obstacles, and they are an important part of my journey because they created the strength and resilience I have today to not only push myself, to encourage my clients when they have a struggle. Everyone struggles, You can’t know true joy if you’ve never struggled. However, I don’t focus on the obstacles. I stay the course, looking at the bigger picture, bigger vision, and bigger impact. You get what you think about most of the time, so I encourage others to become obsessed with what you want. I wanted to be an award-winning radio host, and every choice I made along the way pointed me in that direction. After the disappointment of being let go from radio, I made the choice to serve small business owners, to give them a voice in the marketplace, and today, I am living a blessed life of being the bearer of good news every day.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
It’s funny you would ask because I happen to have a friend in town, visiting for the week. I was reminiscing about Historic Downtown Littleton. Downtown Littleton has this charming one-way main street full of restaurants, shops, and locally-owned bars. During the fall and winter, they light up the trees with twinkle lights and they host a full calendar of activities: parades, pancake breakfasts, elf crawls, art walks. Even during social distancing, they close down the street to allow for al fresco dining and the merchants all support each other. It’s a great community.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
One of my earliest clients who took a leap of faith to hire me to help her share her story is Zondra Evans. We’ve been working together for over 3 years now, and during that time, she has published 2 best selling books, started her own television series that launched into an award-winning network. She and I encourage each other to keep going, we lift each other up when we’re down, but most importantly, we see what we’re each capable of, and we push each other to elevate.
