Two days ago, I blogged about how business anniversaries don't necessarily earn front page news.  But they can earn media attention in the right venues with just the right timely, newsworthy, and relevant story hook.

Case in point — a story by M. Sharon Baker about how I reinvented my business during the recession to survive and thrive appears in today's issue of Rain Today. Rain Today is the premier online source for insight, advice, and tools for growing professional services businesses.  That is certainly a well-targeted audience for how I serve the marketplace.

Here is a brief excerpt from today's article:

After offering professional public relations services to small and medium-sized companies for seven years, Nancy Juetten, founder of Authentic Visibility, realized she spent too much time having coffee or tea and giving away free publicity advice to prospects who ultimately could not afford her services. Rather than look for ways to halt such requests, Juetten, a solopreneur in Bellevue, WA, saw it as a market opportunity and used that information to reinvent her business, a move that helped Authentic Visibility thrive despite the recession.
