April 12th, 2010 – by NSA Staff No Comments

Do you need to trademark them and, if so, how do you go about it? I can’t teach you the whole process here, but let’s start at the beginning. Think of it as mining for gold. First, sift through key words, phrases, memorable concepts[…..]


How To Beat Writer’s Block — Every time! By Dan Janal

April 6th, 2010 – by NSA Staff No Comments

Every article in the world has already been written – not! Ever had trouble thinking up an idea for an article? Hasn’t everyone? My coaching clients are always pulling their hair out asking me to brainstorm ideas with them. Truth is, I was pulling my hair out as well when it came time for me to write articles. Did the world really need another article about how to write a press release or talk to a reporter? Those ideas have been done to death. I was wracking my brains trying to think of a new idea, a cutting edge theme,[…..]

February 22nd, 2010 – by NSA Staff No Comments

Step number two in the Three Step Story Process is to Connect. In this step you begin to draw parallels between what you have experienced and the lesson(s) learned. Connect: What’s important about the list of times, places and words or phrases that you see before you? One way to jump-start the connecting process is to think about the values or ethics you learned at each stop along the way.
