As a Brooklyn, NY native, she has been highly involved in the music, arts entertainment and sports industries since 1985.
GRIT PR & Promotion is a collective team of professionals who work remotely from various locations together via video conferences, telephone and the Internet. This business model enables them to offer a wide variety of services at extremely competitive prices, everything from publicity (traditional and Internet), marketing, radio promotion to product launches, social media, and more. GRIT is active in both traditional approaches as well as the vast online culture, and understands how they both relate and enhance campaigns for musicians, athletes, performing artists and creative business visionaries.
More than anything, they consider themselves “client advocates” who make the client part of the team while leaving egos and preconceived notions about the PR and Promotion business far behind. Strength lies in their diversity, enabling them to seamlessly and successfully work with a diverse set of clients in many genres, fields, and businesses. As a highly dedicated group who can easily adapt to dozens of different dynamics or unpredictable situations, the GRIT team is are always ready to go for whatever exciting opportunity lies ahead!
One of the most unique things about working with Laurena is that she has firsthand knowledge and experience as a working artist as well as an entrepreneur. Laurena’s passion to exceed client expectations and to persevere during uncertain times in the global economy have definitely been traits that others admire and appreciate. When asked about the diversity of the company, Laurena’s reply never waivers: “Our diversity is our strength, not our weakness.” For example, her work with the Father of Krump, Tommy the Clown, has been one of the most rewarding experiences of her life. And while he may not be in the spotlight right now, this dance pioneer is set to bring his infamous Battle Zones back to Los Angeles this fall. Stay tuned!
