Today we’d like to introduce you to Edna Mancia.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Edna. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Well, it began as a creative passion at first. I volunteered at church helping to manage the various social media pages and working a lot of the main production during the services. While I was mostly doing the volunteer work as a creative outlet, I was working various jobs and I came to the realization that a normal 9-5 was not the life for me!
I first began to work with Purpose Driven Films in March of 2019 and I have been their Story Producer ever since. By July of 2019, I was hired by UNATION’s Stuff To Do In Houston where I help connect the city through the events that happen every week! I love both the Story Producing and Digital Event Marketing because they are similar yet different in their own creative right. I love that I am able to connect and meet all sorts of people throughout this wonderful city and either be able to help tell their story with Purpose Driven Films or help to promote their amazing events with Stuff To Do In Houston!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has not been easy. First of all, I did not finish college because I did not want to be drowning in student loan debt. Which means that I have had all sorts of odd jobs before I was able to get to where I am finally at today! Not having a degree can be very limiting, but I am a testament that it is not impossible.
When I first decided to turn my creative outlet to a career, many told me it could not happen for me because I did not have to paper to show that I could do it. I can say that I was rejected plenty of times. So many people don’t even give you a call back when they see you didn’t finish college. Thankfully through experience and daily deciding not to give up, I was able to land two incredible jobs that, not only I have the availability to mostly work from home, but I am able to wake up to something that I love every single day!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Unation’s Stuff To Do In Houston – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
We connect the city through events! In other words, we help market events digitally. We are known to help make finding events in Houston as simple as possible and to be able to promote events and businesses who need a platform to become more visible. As a company we pride ourselves in having a face through the event promotion, you get to meet us personally and build a relationship with us in your city and in turn, you have a relationship with the company. It’s a great business model because you’re not just dealing with us through email or phone unless that’s what you prefer then we can arrange that as well!
We know our clients and our clients get to know us, and I believe that’s what sets us apart from everybody else!
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
My plan is to grow more in my knowledge and experience in producing and digital event marketing. I want to be able to eventually grow Stuff To Do In Houston in the city and the surrounding areas because I believe in what we do and I love that people do connect through experiences and events and that’s exactly what we do! We connect people through events!
I would also love to see Purpose Driven Films grow as a company. We help to tell yours and other people’s stories. I believe everyone has a story they want to be told. That story can look like a documentary film, a music video, an about me for a business or church or non-profit, a commercial, or so much more, the possibilities are honestly endless. I know that this company has a mission and we live this mission with a passion daily.
