Happy 1st Birthday to “Be Your Own Best Publicist”!

Happy birthday to us — our book, we mean!  Today marks the one year anniversary of the publication of Be Your Own Best Publicist: How to Use PR Techniques to Get Noticed, Hired and Rewarded at Work.

First – a big thank you for all of the support you’ve given to us since the book hit shelves (and websites) 12 months ago. We are beyond thrilled at the attention our book has received.  And even happier that its publication has allowed us to build a platform to share career and PR advice through media interviews, workshops and speaking engagements around the country. The trend continues this week: We’ll be celebrating on January 20th by participating in the Wharton Women Business Conference in Philadelphia. (We’ll report back about all the great information shared there – stay tuned!)




In honor of this happy occasion, we thought we’d take a look back at a few of our favorite media highlights and speaking engagements from the past year:

  • In other exciting news, Meryl recently started her own communications/events company, Allen/Cooper Enterprises (and launched Site/109, an events and pop-up exhibitions space on New York’s Lower East Side), and Jessica was nominated as 2011 “Publicist of the Year” by PR News.   

Now, as we enter into our sophomore year as published authors and as Be Your Own Best Publicist goes into its second printing  (yay!), we want to thank you again for your continued support, particularly those of you who have either bought copies or encouraged others to do so.  (Of course, if you haven’t, it’s not too late – the book is available on Amazon.comBN.com, on Kindle and Nook and in bookstores nationwide.)

We hope you will keep up on our various press coverage, speaking engagements and news here, as well as on our Facebook fan page and Twitter feed (@bestpublicist).  If you haven’t check us out on Forbes.com’s Work in Progress section or BusinessInsider’s War Room section, please do!

Until next time, we wish you all a fabulous new year filled with much success. Here’s to being your own best publicist in 2012!
