Imagine you’re in your mid 20’s. You are enjoying a career as a television producer in Greece, and the economy tanks. Being in a dream job is great, unless you are in an industry that survives on advertising which is the first thing that business have a tendency to cut, once the economy state to turn sour.


You lose your job, and the prospects look grim.

What makes your character is what you do when life throws you a curve like that.

Do you pout and say, oh woe is me? Life did me wrong? Or, do you sit down, list out the assets you have, reach out to family and friends, and figure a way to start over.

This is what happened to Corrina Essa. What she might have thought was the training ground to a bright future, turned her into just another statistic in a recession that affected countless people.

Her story is what we are going to talk about today. And what is so cool about her journey, is that all that struggle, lead to today, where she is CEO of Social Media Worldwide, an international business dedicated to helping companies deal with and manage their social media presence online.
