In our almost two decades in business, MSS Media has served an abundance of satisfied clients, optimized thousands of campaigns, and been named one of the best places to work by PR Week. Recently Barbara Gretsch, MSS Media’s CEO and managing partner, was pleased to share her thoughts on overcoming the challenges of business leadership with Authority Magazine (a Medium publication).
The resulting article is part of Authority Magazine’s highly informative series entitled “5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Began Leading My Company”. From the inspiration behind MSS Media, through rookie mistakes and growing pains, to succeeding in the midst of even the most difficult times, Barbara covers every stage of developing both as a firm and as a business leader.
“All businesses encounter ups and downs. Effective leaders possess the ability to remain optimistic even in the most challenging times.”
- BARBARA GRETSCH
In addition to discussing five things she wishes someone told her before she took on a leadership role, Barbara reflects on some advice she wishes she hadn’t followed, three character traits she believes have contributed to her success, tips to avoid burnout, the most common mistakes she’s seen people make when starting a company, and ways to make a company stand out from the competition.
