Carolyn Ann:

I am wowed! What come back do I have to such wealth of suggestions and practical advice? I found myself referring to this information in several conversations today.

I also posted to Twitter that folks should read the comments here. It' fascinating how you grouped the items as well. One of the reasons why I love books is that they give me a chance to learn from ideas that I can then try in real life.

When you say contribute to a professional association/trade group I'd also add if there isn't one, create it. Then you get to test your ideas in real time and receive feedback. That's tremendous learning and a sure path to experience.

Love what you do, yes. When I talk about marketing and how I intend its meaning, I light up. That energy can be transmitted.

Thank you for the thought and time you put into this.

Thanks for the heads up on Dan's!?

Your keen eye has picked up on how Pink is "drawing us in...with the activities surrounding the book launch."

This is marketing as "context building".

Where there is no context for our marketing messages marketers must create one.

Keep creating,

Hmm...advice to someone starting their first job...

There's no need to be nervous! You've made it past the application stage and the interview stage. That alone earns you the confidence to walk tall.

Then, ask questions and listen attentively. Doing this will allow you to learn and grow in your position with your confidence in-hand.

On another note, I love the idea of manga!
