Owning My Brand
In an effort to heed the advice of the PR gurus, I’m taking ownership of my brand. Since no one can advocate for “me” better than me, I’m going to take advantage of every social outlet that I can (within reason… I’m still not ready to Twit…Chirp… Whatever the hell it is!). I’m going to […]
