Burn Out, Interns, Events, & More

During the August 10 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros discussed client advice, feeling burned out, hiring an intern, and more. Specifically, the following questions were addressed:

1. Would you ever advise a client to blog negatively about a person or competitor? #solopr

2. I’m bored with my current work and feeling burned out. How do I get the mojo back? #solopr

3. I’m interested in working with an intern. Is it too late to get one for the fall? Things I should know? #solopr

4. Has anyone used MyMediaInfo? Thoughts? Any other similar svc you’d recommend? #solopr

5. What events are you doing to this fall? How do you choose? #solopr
