As the Founder of a multi-media agency with top tier clients, Rakia Reynolds is all too familiar with hashtag moments and social media dreams. But in this TEDx talk she goes beyond the glory into the real story, teaching us both how to be transparent, and when to “fog up the glass.” In just 9 minutes Reynolds assembles a mosaic of accumulated roadblocks, failures, stumbles, and unexpected moments of triumph and joy, weaving together an authentic and hopeful journey to inspire entrepreneurs for ages to come.

Rakia Reynolds is the founder of Skai Blue Media, a multimedia public relations agency with an all-star roster of lifestyle, technology, non-profit and fashion clients such as Uber, Forbes, “Project Runway” winner Dom Streater, Serena Williams, HSN, Ted Baker London, Campbell’s, Dell and Big Brothers Big Sisters. An influencer in the creative business industry, Reynolds is sought after by companies to provide expertise in creative development, branding and strategic communications. Reynolds has guest edited Marie Claire magazine, was featured in Essence and Lucky and writes entrepreneurial-focused articles for outlets like Forbes.com, Living in the Grey, Idea Mensch, and Killer Startups.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
