Keep on pitching...

"There is a reporter for every story. It might not be the reporter or the publication that you would dream of enticing, but there will be reporter somewhere who is interested."

This is a quote from the book, "Media Training 101: A Guide to Meeting the Press" by Sally Stewart.

This quote is very inspirational for me as a publicist. As the book points out, even experienced story pitchers hear "no" frequently.

When I'm plowing through my media lists, studying and commenting on reporters' stories, I like to keep this quote in mind. It keeps me going until I find a reporter (or 2 or 3!) for my clients' stories.

"There is a reporter for every story...." Keep on pitching....

Courage Cards

I recently received a catalog from Courage Cards. Courage Cards is a nonprofit holiday greeting card company supporting the services of Courage Center. The fine art imprinted business holiday cards feature traditional holiday, city skylines, winter landscapes, whimsical and religious fine art cards.

Most of the artists who create the cards have disabilities.

Proceeds from the cards go to support the services of Courage Center – a nonprofit rehabilitation and resource center advancing the lives of people of all ages and abilities. Courage Center specializes in treating brain injury, spinal cord injury, chronic pain, autism and disabilities experienced since birth.

Many of the cards are quite beautiful. Your company usually sends holiday cards, why not order from Courage Cards and help advance the lives of people of all ages and abilities?
