When we launched blogs last year, like every new blogger I had every intention to post here regularly. But between having to write magazine columns, do weekly podcasts and even the occasional magazine interview or feature, I honestly just got tired of having to create content. I quickly fell out of practice and was horrified when I recently saw how long it had been since the last time I posted here. So, I’m determined to change that.
Whether it be giving you some of the behind-the-scenes action (like with the Obama and McCain interviews), or some of the best RELEVANT Podcast fodder, or even answering some of your questions, this spot will be your access to all things from the RELEVANT CEO office.
Let’s start things off with a bang. A few days ago, our very own Betsy Hickman compiled some of the media blitz that surrounded our brief, but unexpectedly controversial Q&A with Barack Obama last week. It was picked up by the AP, a ton of blogs and media outlets — even the Republican National Committee issued a press release about it. Here are some of the links:
