A few weeks back, the Phoenix Business Journal put together a killer focus section on some of the best and brightest in the Valley’s marketing scene, including a spotlight on our own Abbie S. Fink and several of our great buddies and colleagues. If you missed it, check out the whole shebang here.

Here are some of my favorite nuggets of wisdom from on all things PR, marketing and advertising I gleaned from the feature.
