I met an amazing woman this morning, a strong lady with a powerful story of survival…overcoming all odds. Her expression in this image matches her inner desire to achieve her dreams and #DefyTheLie … she not only survived a abusive relationship, she has transformed her life! I totally enjoy our work with Safe Harbor!
PRSA has got to get away from taking the same ole topics then plugging and playing the same marketing/pr boiler plates into recommendations for the membership. So let’s talk about engagement and how to really increase engagement with video on Facebook.

The craft of telling visual stories differs from other disciplines in that it is forever married to the advancement of technology. If a writer possesses the necessary talent and vision, it makes little difference whether he uses Microsoft Word or a Quill pen and powdered ink. Visual storytelling is different. As technology advances, new horizons are opened up. New tools give us new ways of better constructing the narrative we hope to convey. This being the case, we are always on the lookout, keeping a watchful eye on the digital technology market.
I was watching Vice Does America tonight and episode three focused on touring parts of the midwest. There was a section where they visited the Lakota Reservation in Rosebud, South Dakota; a place where the activist from the Great Sioux Nation are peacefully protesting the expansion of the Keystone XL pipeline.
I finally did it…I refurbished this Eastman Kodak Brownie Target Six 20 camera that has been sitting on my shelf since my 40th birthday. Sarah had one heck of a 40th Birthday Party for me which included purchasing old cameras for each of the tables. This is one the cameras she found, so I thought I would start trying to use it.
