Getting seen, heard, and celebrated for your winning ways can be fabulous for your business, and the experience of winning is priceless for your personal brand and reputation. Winning awards and recognition is one of the most powerful ways to deploy the power of do-it-yourself publicity to your buzz building advantage, and I am sharing an opportunity in this blog post that I want you to jump on before June 6.

If you are under 40 years of age, take note. The Puget Sound Business Journal is seeking executives and business owners who excel in their industry, show dynamic leadership in their business and their community, and have the magic to perform at the top of their game now and lead for years to come. Honorees are profiled in a special section within the newspaper, and there is a fabulous networking event to which every worthy member of the list is invited to connect, build new relationships, and set the stage for even better things ahead.

June 6 is the nomination deadline, and June 16 is the application deadline.

And, if you need a guiding hand from an expert to refine and upgrade your application, consider renting my PR brain by the hour to get the help you need. I have a proven track record helping top local executives earn places on this list. Among them include Dave Caple, president and CEO of ABODA, David Cox, general manager for Graebel, and Marc Galvagno, president of Air Van Lines, Inc, among others. Each client to a person loved the experience, the recognition, and the opportunities that continue to flow as a result of the stellar new connections made.

Once you win, you will forever be remembered and honored as one of the Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 Under 40. No one ever regrets being named to the list. Don’t sit on the sidelines and read about other executives under 40 who aren’t nearly as remarkable as you. Believe it or not, the years pass quickly, and you won’t be under 40 forever.
