During the February 9 #solopr Twitter chat, solo PR pros discussed the Do-it-Yourself PR mindset, how to handle being dissatisfied with an outside vendor's work, how to prepare for a solo PR career while at an agency, and trying new mobile tactics for PR. Specifically, the following questions were addressed:

1. How is crowd sourcing going to hurt solo PR types? Are you threatened by the “do your own PR” mindset?

2. What do you do when you've made a down payment to a vendor, but become dissatisfied with their work?

3. If I'm considering going solo in a few years, what should I do now while I work at an agency to prepare?

4. Yesterday posted on the Solo PR blog about PR & mobile: http://ow.ly/3RKyj – have you tried any new tactics?

Be sure to check out the transcript in PDF for the full discussion. How would you answer these important questions?

The #solopr chat – held each Wednesday from 1-2 p.m. Eastern – is a weekly ritual for some of the most savvy Solo PR Pros on Twitter. Anyone with a Twitter account is welcome to participate – see Join Us for the #solopr Chat on Twitter to find out how!
