Which is why Skai Blue Media founder and entrepreneur Rakia Reynolds has such an inspiring story. It was due to an unexpected layoff from her then dream job that pushed Reynolds to launch her full-service public relations agency.

That leap of faith paid off. Now, Reynolds counts major clients like tennis champion and entrepreneur Serena Williams, model Ashley Graham and tech giants like Dell as clients.
