Ameca (Amy) Cooley

Ameca Cooley

CEO, Fast Pay Financial, Inc.

  • Professional from start to finish. My reputation with the media hinges on how my publicist performs.
  • Tracey is Trustworthy. As my publicist Tracey has to be able to earned my trust without making outrageous claims or promises? Which lead me to believe she can probably earn the media’s trust, too.   I’ve known Tracey for 21 years so during that time she has had an opportunity to develop trust with me.
  • Tracey is Confident. Publicists deal with rejection almost daily. They have to bounce back from every “no thanks” they hear, knowing they’re that much closer to a “yes.”
  • Enthusiastic. I wouldn’t hire someone to promote me who was less than enthusiastic about me or my business.
  • Tracey is very Creative. From the first day she suggested one idea after another. This is key for ongoing work relationship, since we will be working together for months and possibly years.
