  1. Hi guys,

    Great show this week – thought I’d make a comment on Terry’s 30 segment.

    I too was once an ambitious PR student gunning for that first job, and remember sacrificing most of my free time to read up on the industry, go on information interviews, volunteer for PR events, etc. I thought it was all important stuff; but, I was cutting out many things that helped to shape who I was before I got into PR…music, creative writing, and art.

    If I were to extend upon Terry’s excellent advice, I’d say you should not only get outside the box and diversify your life, but also…after you get the offer letter…don’t get so caught up in the craziness of day-to-day work and the pressure to get ahead that you drop the things you used to love.

    It can be very hard in the first year or two to harmonize your work and personal life…for many with years of experience, it’s still an ongoing challenge; but, if you’re good at your job and you work hard, your job will always take care of you.

    If you’re just starting out in PR, find the time and keep picking up that guitar, or paintbrush, or get out and volunteer for a cause you’re passionate about.

    Who knows…your boss just might tap you on the shoulder and ask you to help out on a proposal for a major recording label or an arts fundraiser. You might even find yourself walking into a great organization, doing work in-house that blends your PR skills and a personal talent.

    Thanks – love the show and have been listening for several years! Keep up the great work.

    Ann L.
