Becky Leone

The Basics...

How's it going? I'm Becky! I've lived in all different places within Florida from Daytona to Crystal River and now Tampa. Before coming to In The News, Inc. in 1996, I was already working in sales. I feel I'm good at what I do because I'm honest, direct, and keep the customers needs ahead of mine. I work primarily with online newspapers and magazines which gives me a client base that ranges all over North America. The type of client tends to vary dramatically as well. I work with restaurant owners, sports coaches, players, agents and owners, law-enforcement officers, cheer organizations, banks, and real estate offices. Some of these people are big money makers, like my clients at Professional Sports Representation, Inc. and others are just the average American citzens. I love the diversity. 

Why do you love In The News, Inc.?

"I love talking to people, it's my true passion, and to be able to provide a beautiful product and put a smile on the faces of companies and individuals who are succeeding makes me feel great. It is so rewarding to find a client while they are young and watching them grow over the years. Countless times I have made a client out of an aspiring entreprenuer or athelete just getting their first press and end up joining them for their journey into the pros or a hugely succesful company. To say it is a pleasure to help document and preserve their success along the way is a gross understatement! 

Also, I just love the fact that I get to speak to people across all of North America in general. I enjoy making people happy. Even though I don't get to meet my customers in person, they are what makes it fun for me to work. I get to be myself on the phone and there is never a dull moment."

A little more about me...

I have three successful children who were deeply involved in sports as they grew up. As a result, I absolutely love working with parents whose kids have been featured in the paper acknowledging their accomplishments on the field or court. It brings back such wonderful memories for me when I hear the joy in the voices on the other side of the line as I talk to them about their kids, even if they don't end up purchasing a plaque. My kids have given me four beautiful grandchildern, with two more due by August 2014, whom I love to spend time with every time I can. When I have some free time, I spend it at the beach with friends and family, watching football, listening to music, and playing with my dog Bailey.
