Twin Cities PR This Week – Feb. 13


A number of promotions in this week’s edition of Twin Cities PR This Week, which is always good to see. But, that brings up an interesting topic: What are you doing TODAY to advance your career? Have you thought about getting more involved in your professional organization (call me, if you’re interested in getting more involved with MIMA)? Have you read and shared an interesting industry article? Have you had coffee with a colleague you haven’t seen in a while? Think about ONE STEP you can take TODAY to advance your career. Then, think about that tomorrow, too. You’ll be surprised how quickly those little steps add up.

Now, on to the news of the last two weeks…
