Ebony.com Introduces New “Fearless Living” Column with Wilson Global Communications CEO Julia Wilson Sharing International Success Tips
“Fearless Living with Julia Wilson” will be published bi-monthly on Ebony.com; featuring personal life lessons, international business survival and success tips.
(NEW YORK) – The spicy chronicles of Wilson Global Communications USA CEO and Founder Julia Wilson launched live today for the 11 million mainly young millennial readers of Ebony.com, the digital arm of Ebony Magazine. The bi-monthly column dubbed “Fearless Living with Julia Wilson” will focus on Wilson’s formal and nontraditional education, her global journalistic and business work – multi-cultural life experiences, and success stories. The Thursday column will cover Wilson’s life and business career from her humble beginnings in Tulsa, Okla., to founding and operating her own international public relations consultancy in South Africa, now relocated to Wash., D.C.
Wilson founded Wilson Global in 1994 in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she lived for several years, making history as the first American woman to found a full-service public relations firm in the new South Africa. She expanded Wilson Global’s services to several countries in Africa, including Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, Malawi, and Tunisia, and later, to France, China and Brazil. She moved her consultancy to our nation’s capital in 2005.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to share my sometimes eclectic, and often challenging life experiences and stories with others in the world,” said Wilson. “As a long-time advocate for more positive images of people of African descent, I’m pleased to discuss my diverse life experiences, first growing up in the Midwest of the United States, then opening a business in a foreign country (with a dream, but no start-up capital), then living, studying, and working abroad. It’s my hope that readers of my column will not only become more emboldened to embrace their dreams and face their fears, but will be inspired to think globally and multi-culturally in their lives and businesses. Following through on our dreams is often the key to turning them into realities.”
“Ebony.com is proud to be the launch platform for Julia Wilson and her captivating stories in down-to-earth language,” said Mayo. “This dynamic woman and the lessons she’s learned in her life will provide our young readers with practical steps for achieving big dreams and for learning how to be a fearless global citizen.”
“Fearless Living with Julia Wilson” will be published online every other Thursday, starting on Thursday, October 10, 2013, and can be accessed at URL: http://www.ebony.com/fearlessliving. The official Facebook page for the column is Fearlessliving8, and the official twitter handle is @fearlessliving8.
