Happy first day of summer! What are you doing to celebrate? Hopefully, whatever it is, you will remember to stay safe and drink plenty of water, get some rest and sit in the shade of a palm tree.
One of the clients that I have the pleasure of working with is the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH). And this HOT summer we have been traveling across the state on a media tour to spread the message about heat awareness and safety, which include the messages around water, rest and shade.
During the media tour the three key lessons I learned were:
1) That you will absorb so many interesting statistics that you wondered how you lived before not ever knowing. Such as:
2) If you decide to just “drop off” a media kit to a station that you didn’t have an appointment with, be prepared to be asked for an immediate on-camera interview (because, of course, the pitch you have prepared is so good).
3) If you decide to ride together on a trip to Yuma (which according to my friend Kevin Curran- is the Paris of the West), be prepared for more than six hours in the car.
It is amazing what I learn from my job and my clients every day! I would love to know something you have learned recently, either from something job-related or from one of your clients.
