Business is Picking Up…

And that’s a very good thing. Unfortunately, it means that I haven’t had much time this week to write. I have a post titled, “What I’m Doing Differently and Why,” half-written and definitely not ready to share. One of the things it talks about is making sure the activities that build my business and build community don’t take a backseat to the “urgent” things that often take over chunks of time on any given day. As you can see, that’s one I’m continuing to work on… !

In the meantime, I am going to share this post with you: Crisis Communication: When You Can’t Escape. It’s one bit of public writing I did get accomplished this week, and I hope you’ll take a moment, read it, and let me know what you think. It’s not only for PR people… if you’re in business for yourself or working for a company in any kind of public-facing role, it’s applicable.

Oh… if you have ideas, tips, or commiseration you want to share on the whole, “What I’m Doing Differently and Why” post idea, please tell me. I’m hoping we can all help each other do better. 🙂

Happy Friday!

      Thanks, Bobby… ! I rather needed that today! Very glad to hear you’re busy and loving it as well. At the risk of sounding like a mutual admiration society, I think you rock, too 🙂

    seeing same here. great news, as PR and branding is an investment in a company’s future and if they are confident, they will invest in PR

      One would hope, yes? I’m glad to hear you are noticing an upswing, too. I think people (and the businesses they run!) can be morose for only so long.
