I have always wanted to have my own production company. I've always wanted to create content and tell really cool stories. I didn't really want to go back into my journalism career full-time. I wanted to be able to find a way to create and tell different kinds of stories and learn about different types of stories and different ways of telling stories.
So that's when I launched Alejo Media.
Do you want to learn effective ways to build relationships, generate sales, and grow your business from successful entrepreneurs, startups, and CEOs, without listening to a long, long, long interview?
If so, you've come to the right place. Gresham Harkless values your time and is ready to share with you precisely the information you're in search of.
This is the I AM CEO Podcast.

Hello, hello, hello, this is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you've been listening this year, you know that we hit over 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we are repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories, topics, or as I like to call them, the business pillars that we think are gonna be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, and what I like to call CB Nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.
This month we are focused on the visibility game, a.k.a. marketing, advertising, PR, and Sales. I often say the name of the game is being found, and these tools will help you to do that. We have heard the philosophical question, if the tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound? If there's a really, really great product or service and no one knows about it, How great is it really? What impact does it ultimately make?
This is where we will go into this month, looking at visibility, branding, marketing, public relations, sales being the lifeblood of businesses, building many companies, and so much more. This is probably one of the most exciting and probably the most excruciating topics, but we hope this month to demystify or maybe even vanquish the fear and help and arm you with the tools to be able to increase your visibility. So buckle up and sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I AM CEO Podcast.
Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I have a very special guest on the show today. I have Anna Davalos from Alejo Media.
Anna, it's awesome to have you on the show.

It is awesome to talk to you Gresham.
Gresham Harkless 02:23
Great. So what I wanted to do was just read a little bit more about Anna so you can learn a little bit more about all the awesome things that she's been able to accomplish. So Anna tells stories, specifically her client's story using videos, words, animation, whatever it takes to get your story out to the public and to your clients.
Alejo Media began when another chapter of her life ended. She's a journalist, and back in 2011 to 2012, she was the executive producer at an online network. The funding dried up, but she had more story to tell. She opened up Alejo and she has never looked back.
Anna, are you ready to speak to the I AM CEO community?
Anna Davalos 03:00
I think I am.
