From publicist to newsroom, learn the behind the scenes of getting your business in headlines.

An award-winning editor-in-chief, radio + podcast host, on-air tv media expert and national contributor joins forces with career publicist of start-ups, nonprofits, established local and national brands for a rare 360 approach to creating and pitching your story from beginning to end. From story ideation to newsroom execution, Ali and Lindsay will teach you all you need to know to launch, refresh and invigorate your brand in the headlines. There are countless expenses in building and sustaining a business.

Agencies charge thousands of dollars for a one-time launch. And while you often get your money’s worth, we will teach you how to secure media attention for yourself at a fraction of the cost.
