Prepare Your TV Comments In Advance. Fortunately, I did all of my thinking in advance of ever walking into the TV studio. Media trainers often tell their clients to prepare simple three-part messages before going in front of a TV camera for media interviews. (I I give the same advice.) In part, this is good advice for any media interview, whether it be TV, radio or print.

Getting ahead w/o advanced degrees

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce has documented  that all those advanced degrees don't have the ROI we assumed.  It's official.    In a report, it even told us that those pricey MBAs, JDs, and doctorates are unlikely to even product a ticket to the middle class, never mind the good life. So, the brainy among us have to return to getting ahead the old-fashioned way in America.

Aspiring Women

DeFinis Communications

Therefore, having the advanced skills to break through that ceiling and help shrink the pay gap is critical. No one ever said work was easy, but for women, the workplace can be an increasingly difficult place. First, the old cliché of the “glass ceiling” is still alive and well in many industries. Second, the fact is that women still earn less than men—77 cents to every man’s dollar, to be exact. Yes, women have to overcome a lot to be successful.
