Social PR VirtuosoThanksgiving is around the corner, and you’re probably already up to your elbows in stuffing. But how are you preparing for your career past Turkey Day?

Do you know where you’re going to be in 3 months? 6 months? 3 years?

Now, none of us can know exactly where we’ll be in three months, let alone tomorrow. Because “life” happens.

But what we can do is plan for it. So that, all other things being equal, we’re better positioned for success – however we define it – than ever before.

This is why I love working with smart, driven PR pros ready to engage in a bit lot of Social PR badassery.

Take Dinean Robinson, for example. She’s come a long way since we first met, as you can see from her #virtuosoinwaiting contest entry (to win a free seat to The Social PR Virtuoso® Master Course) when I last opened registration:

free seat entry

As it turned out, Dinean didn’t win the free seat. But she didn’t let that stop her. She signed up for the Master Course ANYWAY because she knows how important it is to keep investing in herself.

Not that long ago, I profiled Dinean as part of the “Social PR Spotlight” series on my blog. And this is what she said about her experience with the Master Course thus far:

“I work at a large nonprofit and part of the challenge is getting everyone to understand what I do and to get buy-in from them. The Master Course has been instrumental in helping me educate and empower my team to utilize and participate in the Social PR movement within our organization.”

Did you read that? “The Social PR movement within our organization.” Dinean isn’t just changing her own life, she’s changing her entire organization!

And she may not know exactly where she’ll be in 3 months, or 3 years, but she is setting herself up for success regardless.

So exactly where she’ll be won’t matter. Because she’ll bring her best game.

One week from today, you could still be in a food coma, which is likely to be delightful. Or you could be spending a lot of money on stuff you really don’t need.

Or … you could invest in yourself and be getting ready to bring your best game 3 months, 6 months, 3 years from now, by signing up for the Master Course and taking your career to a whole other level.

I’ve officially reopened registration for The Social PR Virtuoso® Master Course. If you’re ready to move your career to a whole other level in 2017, now’s the time to sign up … especially because I’ll also be doing a 4-week series of LIVE video calls to walk you through it, starting November 30.

And if you sign up by 11:59 pm on November 20th, you can get 10% off – it’s my pre-Thanksgiving gift to you.  😀 

So before you get swamped with the holiday madness, do something good for yourself. Sign up here.
