You do not have to have to have a full public relations department or be a huge corporation to attract media attention.

The start of a new year always comes with the best intentions and why not? You and your team have come back from an extended holiday relaxed and ready to tackle the new year with the same enthusiasm you wished you had at the year end.

Yesterday was my first day back in the office and it was remarkable to see how much work everyone had done with a one-day head start. They were enthusiastic, strategic thinking and were ready to take the business to the next level.

I won't lie... I need to have the best team possible. They each need to be high achieving, dynamic, skilled individuals who are actively trying to be the best.

Fact: Americans are superior marketers

I'm an Australian who prefers to work with American companies.  Why?  Because I learn the most from the American attitude; especially marketers.  Simply, American marketers do it best.
