Dear BAMf,

In two weeks, my client is going to be on a national TV program. It's on set in New York city in and I've done everything to make sure this client is media trained and prepared.

Dear BAMf: Episode 63

Episode 63 highlights:

What is Rhia Ventures?

VG: Rhia Ventures is a social impact organization that houses a fund under it's LLC. Our ultimate mission is to create a vibrant U.S. market for sexual reproductive and maternal health. We focus on producing equitable outcomes for women of color, low-income women and others directly affected by systemic inequities.

What are you most proud of accomplishing in the last 12 months?

VG: One of the main things that I'm proud of accomplishing is launching our podcast, P.S. Blossom. It can be hard to measure impact when you are working within a fund because we are working with the companies and they are working with the consumers. Our podcast allows us to directly connect with the consumers. 

Do you have a favorite way to tell a story?

VG: One of my favorite ways to tell a story is having a storyteller come on, the podcast, that has encountered a specific condition. I will use fibroids as an example, our storyteller comes on and they speak about their direct experience with fibroids from the beginning, middle and end. They also share the statistics and how they appear within them.

What are some needs to know about on-set TV interviews that I can pass along to my client?

VG: I've worked on set as both talent and behind the scenes. Your job is to show up prepared and to trust the process. Remember that the team, the cast and everyone, is there to help you create the best product. Once you get there, treat it like you would any other event. Be mindful of what's going on around you and find a place where you can sit, breathe and prep yourself for being on camera or on stage — trust the process.
