All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Abbie

I’ve known Steve McKee for a very long time.  I was new in my career, working at another PR agency in Phoenix, and he was an account executive at one of the local advertising agencies.  We shared a client.  Little did I know then that as our careers advanced and he would leave the market […]
