Three Key Points:

  1. Allowing others to tell our story adds credibility to the story we tell about ourselves.
  2. Whether it’s crafting the content of your messaging or in media training, keeping a laser focus on what information your audience wants to hear is key. Write for them, not for you.
  3. This industry can be stressful. Channel your inner duck–let it just roll off your back and just keep paddling forward.
