Meet Cynthia Minor President/CEO of 1 Creative Concept PR, Located in Liberty/New York

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do professionally. I am the President/CEO of 1 Creative Concept Unlimited, Inc. and serve as a Publicist and head of Event Planning and Marketing in my company.

What do you enjoy most about your profession and why did you choose it in the first place? It came to me on a trip to Walmart with my kids. I quickly jotted it down in my PDA and developed it when I returned home. Our tag line is ” One creative concept = unlimited opportunities”, the mantra for my company. We will take our clients key idea and design a complete Marketing Campaign, Event, and Development program from that one idea.

Tell us about the organizations your company supports and why? Micro-Mentors, UNICEF, Ronald McDonald House

What is the biggest risk you ever took professionally and/or the biggest obstacle you have overcome? The biggest Risk would be taking time away from my kids to pursue my career. As a single mother, my mom played a big part in raising my children so that I could provide for them. I have missed many plays, sporting events, and concerts and those would be my biggest regrets.

From where do you draw inspiration? Who have been your role models, mentors, etc? I draw experience from my dad who was an entrepreneur through leather manufacturing and one of my biggest role models is Oprah not only for her business sense and overall success but for her Philanthropic efforts and community involvement.

How is the current economic situation affecting your company/organization? The amount of events that I would normally plan has decreased. I work diligently to find ways to show my clients how they can still spend marketing dollars without negative media backlash through the use of our Eco-Elite Event Planning which allows them to do something good for the environment and spend those dollars usefully.

What one thing would you like to learn this year? I would like to learn how to move my company internationally and help other business grow internationally as well.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? There are many dreams not achieved yet because they have not been thought of yet, but they are near and as they come I make it reality. I have recently launched the Luxury Event Planning department of my company and I am launching our first Luxe Fragrance for our Brides and regular consumers called “Bodies of Water” by 1CCU

What do you do for fun/relaxation/entertainment? I am unfortunately a work-a-holic. I do however love to sing with my daughter, who in her own right is a mini-entrepreneur in the making.

Which, if any social networking sites do you belong to?
