It’s been a whirl wind year that has seen me meeting many new clients, plus, the publication of my new book, When the Headline IS YOU.
My book is now in its 3rd Printing!! I am very appreciative of the interest you are all showing for it. I’ve been on book tours that have taken me to New York City, Boston, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, and will continue to travel the country talking about media issues in 2011. Follow me on Twitter to see when I might be in your city.
Investor’s Business Daily, one of the world’s leading financial news and research organizations, interviewed me recently on the subject of managing your reputation in media.
