Rent-a-Brain Consulting Service Earns Client Delight

Media-Savvy-to-Go publicity toolkit buyers qualify to "Rent My PR Brain" by the hour, and this service is off to a great start in 2007.

Here is what Lori Hastings of Home Stone Morgage said about her tele-coaching call with me:

Dear Nancy -

I wanted to take a moment and express my sincere thanks for such a productive one hour consultation. Purchasing your "brain cells" was such a positive and engaging experience. I was typing so fast that I had three full pages of notes! Nancy you should be proud of all you've accomplished. I'm grateful for the opportunity to put this valuable information to use in my Mortgage business. I'm excited to refer you to other professionals, colleagues or individuals.

My sincere thanks! I know my Mortgage business will even be more top notch.


All the best,
Lori Hastings

You Need to Know



Dear RecipientFirstName,

About The Money with Christine Chen is a new show on KCTS Public Television that is all about the money -- the money you earn, the money you save, and the money you spend. Each week the show will offer stories about how to get out of debt, how to put more cash away for a rainy day, and how to spend your hard-earned dollars more wisely. Plus, the show will offer important local business news and interviews with local CEOs and business leaders who affect your life.  Make your pitch on the “contact us” section of the Website.  Learn more about the show at this link:

http://www.kcts.org/aboutthemoney

 

If you have small business expertise and tips to share, consider making a pitch to the Small Business Report with Paul Casey on 1150 a.m. alternative talk radio Seattle.  Every Monday and Tuesday morning during the 8 o-clock hour, Casey interviews experts to help small business owners succeed.  Make your pitch to paul@caseycommunications.net.

 

If you had a remarkable first job from which you learned powerful lessons to fuel your business success, share your story and your high quality digital photo with Bill Kossen of The Seattle Times at bkossen@seattletimes.com.   Explain how you got the job, what you earned, what you learned, and how that factors into your success today.   If he runs your story, many thousands of readers will read it and possibly get in touch to learn more and even engage your services.

 

With the closure of the King County Journal last month, the Reporter Newspapers are now issuing twice a week – on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  These reporters are committed to covering more local news than ever before, and that offers the promise of greater editorial opportunities for you.  Here are the email addresses for the editors of each of the Reporter Newspapers to make it easy for you to make a winning connection and submit a powerful pitch.

Washington CEO magazine is looking for high-powered readers who are Washington business leaders who would like to recommend books they have enjoyed and learned from to other executives.  If you would like to participate, send an e-note to J. Kingston Pierce at letters@washingtonceo.com.

Agency Business Manager and Financial Planner Steve Juetten Earns the Prestigious Certified Financial Planner® Designation

 

Congratulations to my business and marriage partner Steve Juetten for achieving an important career accomplishment of his own. After years of study, hard work, and client service as a financial planner, Steve has earned the prestigious designation of Certified Financial Planner® professional.  Only 53% of the people who sat for this three-day exam last November passed the test, and Steve was one of them.   Those who earn this designation set themselves apart from over one million stockbrokers, insurance agencies and other financial advisors in the United States by demonstrating competency over a wide range of complex financial planning topics and adhering to a strict code of ethics.  There are only 53,000 CFP’s in the United States, and Steve is now among this exclusive group.   I am thrilled someone with such stellar credentials is looking after the financial matters of Nancy S. Juetten Marketing Inc.   To learn more about Steve’s financial planning practice, visit www.finpath.com.
