During this week's Training TuneUp, we talked about what to do when your business gets press. Is it a free ad? Do you sit back and enjoy the PR, then put it in a drawer to archive it forever, only for you to look at later? No! That would be a shy-guy move. You can use that PR for months and years later. Get this TuneUp and stream new ideas.
