How it started
Hey, my name is Laura Gonzalez, owner of Castle Branch Social. It all started in 2012, I was fresh out of high school and attending community college. I had this idea that I wanted to own a business one day. I started a blog about all things style and beauty. It didn’t go well. I would be excited to start, post regularly for a few weeks and then nothing. I fell victim to my negative self-talk, concerned people would judge me for my writing and ideas. Even though my blogging career was a failure, this is where I learned about the blogging industry and social media marketing. A pivotal moment I wouldn’t realize until much later.
After transferring to Fresno State I decided to major in Media, Communications and Journalism with an emphasis in PR. I had dreams of working for a lifestyle PR agency. By 2018 I had graduated and accepted a full-time position (not in PR). Then 2021 rolls around, and I lose my job. What the hell? I had done what I was supposed to do and yet here I was. As devastating as this moment was, I had to keep going. You can only cry for so long until it’s not productive or healing. I decided to put my energy and say yes to what I truly wanted to do with my time.
