Testimonials

  • For years I avoided joining the professional writer’s organizations in favor of an independent approach to networking and relationship building. That worked well for a while, but then I hit a plateau.  During that time I joined several writer's and media organizations.... Read More

  • I have 7 articles publishing this week due to my association with POMA. Not to mention the numerous business opportunities from people that I have met. Just last week a company that I wanted to do some business with automatically jumped on board when he heard that I was a POMA member. I can't even begin to tell you how much business I did just this week due to my POMA connections.

  • POMA generates income for me on an almost weekly basis, in a strange way. Most members use Money Line as a job and freelance opportunity listing. I use it to generate editorial content ideas, especially for business/trade content buyers. Job listings offer tons of information about challenges faced by companies in our industry.... Read More

  • POMA is a money maker! A casual conversation at the POMA business conference turned into a friendship, and almost immediately, into a lucrative business deal for Gun Talk Media. In business, it's often about the contacts, and POMA provides quality contacts.

    Abigail Casey

    Identifying one’s passion is hard enough, let alone successfully working within your passion, a life long dream for most. I was lucky enough to find a strong connection to the outdoors at a very young age, which led me to my career in the outdoor industry. Like many of us I was introduced into the outdoors by my father. He was able to instill upon me the importance of conservation and protection of the great outdoors as a child. He taught me the Outdoor way and the workings of a firearm, which led me to compete as a NCAA Rifle Athlete. My first opportunity in the outdoor industry was an internship at Realtree Outdoors. After my internship and learning the ropes in the video department, I was hired as a videographer, youtube manager and editor at Realtree. During my time there I developed and hosted a fun fast paced YouTube series called “Realtree life.” From the Realtree life series I was scouted to host and help build the outdoor portion of, the then new media company, Rated Red. At Rated Red I hosted over 600 videos in my 2 years and produced over 30 pieces in the field. Now I have recently started on a new adventure as I create content about the outdoors under my own brand AC Outdoors. Here I plan to develop a diverse audience to whom I can communicate the value of conservation and the outdoor lifestyle. -Attended the United States Air Force Academy -Graduated from Columbus State University with Bachelors or Science - NCAA Riflery Athlete - videographer/ editor at Realtree Outdoors - Realtree life Host 2 years - outdoor host for Rated Red - producer/ videographer rated red - 2018 POMA pinical Broadcast award winner
