CLIFF ROLES

Title: Owner and President

Company: 360 Degrees PR Inc.

What was the best business advice you ever received?

I learn new things from everyone I come in contact with. The best advice I received most recently was treat every client like a new prospect. I took that to heart.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

I love what I do right now, it's the perfect profession for me. The only other job I love is being a mom.

What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?

Deciding to go out on my own. I worked as a PR and marketing professional for several other companies and leaving a job to start on my own, jumping off that cliff, was a risk. But I had confidence that it would be successful.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

Turks and Caicos islands and I would also love to return to Italy, which is absolutely lovely. However, I am right where I want to be in this area, as we have some of the best beaches.
