Ep 52 Shake It Up

May 1, 2023

Good morning from New York City. Before I get started today, I’d like to say thank you to those of you who have sent me messages, text messages, voicemails about what is resonating.

It reminded me why I like to be out in the world. Why I like to engage. I felt privileged to be sitting in a room of people from all over the country. It was fascinating to hear stories of reinvention, how people were seeking to serve and put their voice into the media. This event was called Pitch Please because the media comes together, and they were sharing what they’re looking for in a pitch – how they evaluate stories, how to frame the messaging, how to present a new angle on a theme that’s in the zeitgeist. The media were from digital media, television, print, and covering everything from lifestyle, health and wellness, money business. There were people from ABC, NBC, Katie Couric Media, N P R, Business Insider. It was fascinating and I learned a lot.
