Tell us about your business.

About 2 years ago I noticed a major shift in tabloid media and the craze of paparazzi in Hollywood. Although I really thought we would see change after Princess Dianna's death, it has truly gotten so much worse. Equally as troubling is the rise of tabloids printing hateful and negative stories that are harmful to the people that are in entertainment and setting a very poor example to the younger generation. Society seems to forget these are real people, that sometimes face real problems and even dangers, like most recently; Paris Jackson. The day I saw Whitney Houston on the cover of a tabloid in her casket was the day I put my foot down and the idea for Pozarazzi.com swung into action. Pozarazzi.com is the first ever celebrity news and networking website that has a focus on only producing positive news and promotions and provide a "cyber-bully free zone" for the celebrity to network directly with their fans and industry professionals. We don't have to hate & bully to be entertained

What makes your business stand out?

We are 100% "Paparazzi-Free", we provide celebrity news that is based on positivity to promote careers, not distribute harmful and deceitful gossip. We do not take photos of the celebrities minor children without their consent. Our photos of the celebrities are done at professional event (IE: awards shows, red carpets, etc), at their homes with their permission, or uploaded by the celebrities themselves. I really wanted to put the power back in their hands and the respect back into the relationship between the media and the celebrities. On our networking side we provide a cyber-bully free way to network with your favorite celebrity without all of the hate and cyber-bullying, because we have a zero tolerance policy in our membership guidelines. We also do weekly sit down interviews with your favorite celebrities that are personal and organic, not edited or photo shopped. Best of all our subscription memberships are donated to the charities that the registered celebrities support.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Continue to be the best version of you.
