    Oh so true Valerie

    The adage “a picture tells a thousands words” clearly worked in your favour at this meeting. The right media coverage can do wonders for someone in helping to build their professional profile and the business just flows when it’s really right!

    Well done on your success in business.

    Nice story Valerie, I guess media creates credibility and goes to show people’s trust in the media.

    Thanks Gordon. There’s nothing quite like “third party endorsement” and people still seem to think that if the media think you’re worthy then you must be worthy!

    thanks for sharing your human observations

    often I think those things about people I meet in business and life and I either think i am going mad or that I am a bitch

    and your timing in the episode was beautiful, another trait I try and hone

    this is the best part of new communication for me
