Penelope Trunk, author of Brazen Careerist: The New Rules for Success, was quoted on the front page of the print edition of USA TODAY, March 29, 2007 in an article about lay offs at Circuit City.

Here’s the link to the online edition of the story:


“PR Leads has been really really good for me. I have gotten two calls from reporters each week that I’ve done it. To be fair, I am uniquely positioned to benefit from PR Leads, having been on the other side (as a columnist for the Boston Globe and Yahoo Finance) for so long. But I have followed your advice exactly, and I really appreciate all the coaching,” Penelope emailed me.
