"Shayla Raquel is fabulous! I hired her to assist me with my social media, email newsletter, book launch, and author branding. She did a fantastic job helping me clean up my mailing list, update my website, and coached me on how to use social media for the best possible marketing outcome. I highly recommend Shayla Raquel, and I plan on using her again in the future." —Janet Leigh, Award-Winning Author of Jennifer Cloud Series
