I’m having one of those weeks. You know the kind where no matter how hard you push yourself (in work and in life) you don’t feel like you are crossing off anything on your to-do list?   I knew the weeks leading up to April were going to be rough. I have a client expecting […][...]

Overcoming Anxiety

Some anxiety in the face of stress can be a good thing. It makes us work harder, prepare more thoroughly, and perform more intensely.  But people of different temperaments become anxious to varying degrees.

What does a productive day in PR look like?

PR is like having multiple personalities. Being able to flit easily from the mind-numbing task of building a media list, to securing a media interview, to answering a client e-mail and more is invaluable in this industry. Given the fast-paced nature of our profession, it is hard to imagine that ANYO[...]

Learning to Delegate

Getting Out of Work on Time

Something I seem to struggle with is the ability to clock out at 5:30. No matter how hard I try more often than not 5:30 comes and goes just like 6:30 and sometimes even 9:30. I know I am not alone when I say public relations is not a 9-5 job. However, overtime has actually […][...]
