Joia Jefferson Nuri, CEO of In the Public Eye Communications, is a communication strategist and executive presentation and media coach. She shares that “you can’t Google experience.” She gained her expertise working as a technician for NBC and CBS News. She became the first African American woman to serve as Technical Director of Face the Nation and CBS Evening News.
There is something to be said about growing up in a loving family environment. She attributes her success to the confidence gained from the relationship with her parents and their relationship with one another. It was a major building block for her success.
From her personal experiences, she feels her major life lessons are to turn back to God even when you lose track and be brave, go for what you want. What is the worse that can happen?
A key money lesson she has learned is to “stop spending it.” For most of her life, money represented self-esteem. She could eat at the restaurants she wanted and wear the clothes she wanted. Now, at this stage of her life, she only wants around her the things she truly loves. That was a big shift in consciousness from money representing who I am to it complimenting who I am.
