So go and check Boost Marketing out as the Awards List itself is a fabulous resource. It’s the main one in my Toolkit for the PR section.

Until next time my beauties- stay productive.

p.s. I should point out I’m NOT on commision, I don’t get kickbacks or affiliate goodies from these guys – I just think the value they offer with the free resource is fabulous. It’s fabulous to see such information shared readily and not just think ‘meh’ seen it all before – as I seriously don’t know of any other such information asset.
