Get Media. Get Noticed. Get Business.

Susan HarrowPublicity, Marketing and Media Coaching for Entrepreneurs.

I wrote my first book, Sell Yourself Without Selling Your Soul in response to my clients and course participants fear of publicity exposure — that to put themselves or their offer out into the world was akin to parading naked down main street to a jeering crowd waiting to put them in their rightful place. I believe that you don’t need to brag, beg or whore yourself to get the publicity you want. Nor do you need to be an axe murderer, a shamed sports star, or be involved in a sex scandal. There is another way….The articles on this blog will help you prepare for the media spotlight—without selling your soul. So you can define what “fame” or critical acclaim means to you, and then get it on your own terms. Honorably. Delightfully. Uniquely. Just by following Oscar Wilde’s advice, “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”
