17 Oct Update from the Genies
Transition is the word best used to describe the past couple of months at Gossip Genie. Restructuring internally is the toughest part of my job but in the end, it always works out the way it’s supposed to. That being said, we are grateful for our relatively new team members, Violet, Janelle and Lizz.
Violet is an assistant social media manager working 40 hours a week while in school full time. Let me just say, we all tell Violet that she’s our spirit animal because there is NOTHING she can’t do, furthermore, there is NOTHING she can’t do WELL and even furthermore, there is NOTHING she can’t do WELL and in half the time it takes the regular person. Despite being busier than most 19-year-olds, Violet is able to craft incredible content and produce amazing results for any demanding client.
We often laugh about how her peers are spending their time trying to start a fashion blog but most of them just appear to be narcissistic portraits of themselves that provoke the question, what are you looking at? This question is the result of these young “wannabe” fashion bloggers imitating Kylie Jenner. Cheers to Violet for spending her time doing something useful.
Lizz started with Gossip Genie a couple of months ago and it feels like she has been a part of the team for years. During her first month at Gossip Genie, she traveled to Las Vegas to represent Gossip Genie at Vision Expo West and blew us all away with her live social capabilities. Lizz is upbeat and easygoing which is contagious in the best way possible. She adds an element of humor to even the driest client and we are all impressed with what she has been able to accomplish for her clients in such a short amount of time.
Janelle started less than a month ago and while not recommended or advised, she came in yesterday morning basically on her deathbed. We sent her home and she is still doing work while actually on her deathbed. Janelle is working so hard to learn the ins and outs of her clients, she works well into the evening trying to absorb everything.
Not to mention, she is all about business development and has produced some very promising leads in less than 30 days at Gossip Genie.
Janelle and Lizz are already diving into the world of client photoshoots.
Our veterans are doing SO well.
Taryn’s 1 year Genieversary is today and we are all so grateful for everything she has contributed over the past year. Taryn has proven herself time and again. I admire her for so many reasons and one being that she doesn’t give up, despite how difficult a situation might be. Taryn is a ray of sunshine even on the darkest days.
Keenan was promoted to head of production and social media. He has allowed us to offer videography as a service and his work is praised by the clients that have chosen to add that service to their contracts. Keenie the Genie is such an asset to our team with his never-ending dad jokes and hilarious puns, he keeps us all sane during the most stressful times.

Anthony, as we all know, is the Dalai Lama of Social Media. Our team is thriving under his guidance and during the biggest challenges, he is always the voice of reason and reassurance. Anthony keeps us sane. In August, we celebrated his 5-year Genieversary and he knows we would all be lost without him.
