Inspirator, Craig has nailed it!
I have had over 100 "different articles" published in more than 40 different publications around the world but mainly in Australia.
I am frequently quoted in the media and interviewed by all mediums (but rarely television). More frequently on ABC-Radio here in Australia and by Qantas Airlines Business Radio. It takes tenacity and patience to be picked up by the media, but finally when they do, as long as you are good, they will keep coming back to you.
I have never used a PR firm or anybody else to have my work published. I write because I enjoy it and believe I have something worthwhile to say.
Keep at it, but heed Craig`s advice!
