What are your inspirations?

Sometimes life feels tough, unfriendly. It is on days like these that I especially need inspirations — items that help me persevere and keep trying to accomplish.

Don’t get me wrong, there has been a lot of activity lately. From marketing/communications job applications, freelance writing proposals to volunteering and keeping my Mom & Dad’s new puppy safe. What I really need is for the job application and freelance proposals to pay off. I definitely need some inspiration to keep going.

Here, in no particular order, are the items/ materials that give me strength to pursue marketing/communication/pay-the-bills dreams. (I would love to freelance or work with a small, medium-size growth-oriented PR agency. Above all, I’d like to make an impact and keep learning.)

The Inspiration List

• For time management advice, I like to read Harvard Business Review article “Three Questions that Help Me Live a Fulfilling Life.”
• For a reminder to practice yoga throughout the day, I like to view The Huffington Post video “These Yoga Poses Will Take You Through The Perfect Day.”
• For an escape, I like to read fiction and look for DIY & fashion ideas from the Live Well Network shows Mirror, Mirror and Knock it Off.
• For a sense of the wider world, I like to read blogs like those listed in the “Blogs I Follow” section of this site.

What items help you through the day? What are your inspirations?

The Marketing Hat (soon to be a Saturday sun visor)

I am not sure where I got that title from. Something to do with “wearing many hats” and the fact it is, for the most part, summer. Anyway, after reading the recent bacon article from the American Chemical Society (ACS) I am filled with marketing ideas and questions…

How do I continue to use my marketing/pr education to promote organizations and causes  waiting for consumers, similar to how ACS created traction for the organization as additional media carried the bacon story.

Most businesses can find element(s) that make them unique and “top of mind” to the consumer. And I think promoting causes, local places or B2B is fun.

So, I have been thinking about post topics for local businesses…

You never know when a bacon article will inspire a marketing hat.
