How does an entrepreneur take any idea and turn it into a profitable venture? What do investors look for when evaluating start-ups? These two important questions are answered in a book by one of America’s top traders, Michael J. Palumbo, called Calculated Risk: The Modern Entrepreneur’s Handbook. The book helps founders and executives navigate today’s business climate from idea conception through funding, expansion, and exiting.
MEDIA CONNECT’s campaign for Mindy Mackenzie’s The Courage Solution was a great success, with approximately 20 leading print and online business media placements and over 15 targeted radio and podcast interviews. Highlights include three Fast Company placements; Inc.com, USNews.com, and Daily Mail features; as well as interviews with WGN Radio and So Money with Farnoosh Torabi.
MEDIA CONNECT conducted a boutique campaign for public interest attorney Steven M. Druker’s book Altered Genes, Twisted Truth. The book tells the fascinating and frequently astounding story of how the massive enterprise to restructure the genetic core of the world's food supply came into being, how it advanced by consistently violating the protocols of science, and how for more than three decades, hundreds of eminent biologists and esteemed institutions have systematically contorted the truth in order to conceal the unique risks of its products–and get them onto our dinner plates. MC executed a national campaign with an emphasis on traditional media (print, TV, radio), online outlets, as well as social media and the organization of three press conferences, which featured preeminent primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall as a special guest. These press conferences took place in Washington, DC, Toronto, and Salt Lake City, UT.
What a difference you've made in my career. We did it again! My David Rothenberg Any Saturday Show interview on WBAI, on July 14, went wonderfully. I was interviewed live for 30 minutes, and while on the air, David invited me to return to his program to discuss my work in the future. I'd love to do more interviews. With great thanks and best wishes.
