Three Things I Learned From My Month of Bullet Journaling

Three Things I Learned From My Month of Bullet Journaling

I recently started bullet journaling in an attempt to appease my ADHD brain. But before I bore you with the details, know that the entire concept of bullet journaling was created by a creative agency worker. Ryder Caroll evolved the method to organize his tasks, notate client meetings and reserve room for brainstormingall while at an agency.

My latest attempt at bullet journaling was a last resort caused by nearly missing one appointment and completely missing another. Of course these appointments were not work-related, showing you where my true priorities are. I am tempted to sneak in the notion that I am the perfect mother by indicating how these appointments were not related to my children. But then I’d be misrepresenting myself as one who has her family priorities completely aligned.

My brain literally cannot “see” digital calendars, especially when overlaying three additional family members’ calendars on top of mine. Yet, this missed appointment had nothing to do with other peoples’ calendars and I don’t have any technological excuses. The truth is that I will ignore anything that is not work-related, even if it is something I want to do, such as the facial I missed on a Friday at 5 p.m.

Realizing that something needed to changesince I’ve never completely missed an appointmentI turned to bullet journaling once again. My past attempts never worked because the practice has always been presented in elaborate, unapproachable ways. 

Thinking that maybe this time I should learn from the actual creator of the method, I picked up Ryder’s book, the Bullet Journal Method, and it has been working for me. Imagine that! Since bullet journaling was born in an agency setting, by an agency worker, I thought you may appreciate three key concepts I have learned from Ryder.

Bullet Journaling Is Customizable

Bullet journaling has the reputation of being overly complicated and fussy, but it doesn’t have to be. Rather, bullet journaling can be whatever you want it to be. In fact, the concept of rapid logging—where you free-flow your to-do list, writing down items as they come to you without organization​​seems to be the opposite of complicated and works really well for the ADHD brain whose thoughts can be all over the place. My to-do list is messy with the most mundane personal items mixed in with large brainstorms. 


Bullet Journaling Removes Clutter

Then, if you’re so inclined, the organization comes later as the items are merged into other sections of the journal. Or not! Another key takeaway was relentlessly removing the unimportant tasks to free up time. If an item keeps appearing on various lists, does it mean I can’t get to it, or does it mean that it isn’t important and should therefore be removed altogether? Or, if one fails to show up for her facial, should it have been on her list at all?

Bullet Journaling Brings Calm

Ryder suggests starting and ending the day by bullet journaling, which has brought an unexpected sense of calm ritual to my working days. Before launching in, I’ll light the RBG candle I stole from my daughter, sip my double espresso and sketch out my day. While working, I’ll break from the screen to proudly check off a completed item. However, I’m not leaving enough time at the end of the day to assess where I’ve been and where I’ll go next within my bullet journal, likely because I am working on any old project up until the last minute. There is always room for growth!

Yet, I’m most happy that I’ve consistently bullet journaled for over a month. Afterall, Ryder suggests maintaining the practice for at least a few months, saying that it all clicks into place at the month’s end as you merge items and forward-plan. 

As I sat down to close out last month and think forward to this month, a few click click clicks of the brain and the pen occurred and I understood what he meant. I can’t promise that I won’t miss a personal appointment, nor that I will bullet journal the way it is outlined in the book, but that is not the point. I’m free to refine my practice into something that will work for me. It’s not pretty, but it’s mine. 

Streamlined Press Release Template [Free]

Streamlined Press Release Template [Free]

If you’re a no-nonsense kind of person, you may benefit from the more streamlined press release template below. After reviewing the press release “template” I’d originally created in “A Modern Guide to Public Relations,” I realized it’s not a template. It’s a creative way to explain the inner-workings of a press release instead. So, if you like a little more explanation, be sure to check that out, but if you’re all about the facts, this is for you!

While this press release template is possibly more straightforward, I should warn you that there really isn’t a way to create a general press release template without knowing what the topic of the release even is! Hopefully soon we will be able to create templates for specific press release topics, as listed below:

The theme here is New because the News is about what’s New

  • New board/committee: either your leader has joined or your organization is announcing new member(s)
  • New charitable donation: your organization either receives or gives more than $5,000
  • New office opening
  • New service or product creation
  • New notable hire
  • New development/building construction
  • New scientific study launched or results announced
  • New award win
  • New or returning event announcement 
  • New funding received or going public

What’s New with your organization? That’s your press release topic, unless…. You are following up on previously sent news with a recap, such as:

  • Recap event announcing results, i.e. funds raised or attendees drawn
  • Recap community effort, such as how many bags of trash collected
  • Recap organizational growth/hiring/funding efforts previously announced.

It is fine to “recap” news in a press release, it’s just more retro-active news. If you’re recapping news, you’re likely creating a follow-up press release to news you’ve already sent. 

Photo opportunities/media events:

  • Photo opps such as volunteering or groundbreakings could be written as straightforward media advisories or fun pitches that paint the visual if you’re inviting the press. A press release may not be needed as long as your invitation is clear and at the top of the pitch.
  • Press conference announcement (if you need a template for this, you’re not ready to host a press conference on your own).

If none of these scenarios fit with your announcement topic,  perhaps give more thought to whether your announcement should be formatted as a press release. Or, would it be better served by an email pitch? Many of our best stories were not generated from press releases, rather they were generated by pitches that were customized, not just by topic and client, but mostly for the press medium (TV, podcasts, or print/web, etc.) and/or press contact.

Should You Write a Press Release

Headline Summarizing All Content with

 Location or Industry Mentioned 


[City], [State abbreviation], [Date] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Today [insert organization name with link to website] announces [insert announcement]. [Insert one-two sentences about the announcement and/or when, what, where details. Include information about the organization, but don’t overshadow what’s being announced].

“[Insert how you, or someone else, feels about this announcement in quote format,]” said [insert first and last name, title, organization]. “[Insert how this announcement will help either people, local community/market, industry, or all of it].

[Add points of reference, such as research (cite sources), stats, etc. to back quotes].

“[Insert another quote if there is more to say or someone to highlight, such as a sponsor, community member, client, notable VIP, etc.], said [insert first and last name, title, and company if quoting a new person. If it is the same person as quoted above, only insert last name.]

More information could go in this paragraph, if necessary. If quoting a new person above, include their involvement with the announcement, either after or before their quote. If introducing them (with full name, title, and company) in text before their quote, only list their last name with their quote. 

More about [insert organization name]:

This is the “boilerplate” meant to offer the organization’s background. It is the same in every press release. It can be updated as the organization evolves. [Insert 2-5 sentences about organization and link to website. Include services or products organization provides, location(s), and/or industry(ies)/ location(s) service or product it helps].  [Insert social handles].

[Insert Media Contact Name and Contact Info, including cell phone and email address]

What We Love, And Hate, About Marketing [Podcast]

What We Love, And Hate, About Marketing [Podcast]

Love is in the air at Veracity this month. With Valentine’s Day coming up, we decided to celebrate marketing and PR by asking some of our favorite people what they love about marketing. Below, you will find quotes from some of our employees, clients and partners. Amy and I also talk about it in week’s episode of PR Talk, while also joking about what we hate about marketing!

I love marketing and PR because it gives me an opportunity to meaningfully connect brands and audiences by sharing stories through media. There is nothing better in this job than working with reporters for a story and then seeing the engagement that comes from the public as a direct result. Hearing that someone saw a story in their local paper and then got involved is one of the most validating aspects of this job, and I love being able to play a part in making that connection.

Kristen Baker-Geczy

Account Manager, Veracity

The Logical Position mission statement centers around helping businesses grow and that’s truly what we love about our industry here in the digital marketing space. Over the 12 years that LP has been in business we’ve had the privilege of seeing the significant impact the results that our marketing efforts have had on our clients’ businesses and their families. We’ve been alongside small businesses as they’ve flourished, watched clients hire on additional staff to keep up with new demand, and seen countless clients increase their marketing ad spend as a result of account success. It feels good to know that the work we’re doing is truly life-changing for some of the businesses we work with, and that’s what makes the power of marketing so beautiful.

Emmy Thomas

Director of Brand and Marketing, Logical Position

I love that marketing has so much variety in the work, every day is different. With the never-ending change in the marketing atmosphere, my creative brain is constantly being challenged, which keeps me excited to see what’s next.

Cailyn Tegel

Assistant Account Executive, Veracity

As a naturally curious person, I love how marketing work allows me to learn about new businesses, new industries and new ideas. What’s even more exciting is that by deepening my learning, not only do I become a more well-rounded person, but I also serve my clients better. It’s an incredibly rewarding feedback mechanism that I haven’t found anywhere else.

Josh Friesen

Senior Writer, Veracity

I love working with a team to solve that challenge of getting your product/service in front of the correct audience, and doing it better than the competition. I also like the fast paced nature and the sense of accomplishment you get after hitting a deadline. I grew up playing basketball and baseball, and it kind of reminds me of this time in my life and the feeling you get after winning a big game.

Tyler Stoltz

Marketing Manager, Columbia Steel Casting Co., Inc.

Over the years, among the things I’ve learned about myself and my chosen career field in communications are: 1) I am interested in figuring out why people think or act the way they do; 2) I like to tell stories; and 3) I’m good at solving problems. In essence, those are all essential elements of marketing communications.


In our careers (and personal life), we’re typically seeking to attain a sense of satisfaction about the work we’ve accomplished. Ultimately, I think what drew me to marketing communications – and what continues to drive my love of the work – is that it matches well with those things I’ve outlined above. And, while I’ve never been one to feel like I need to achieve some big passionate goal or make some sort of compelling societal difference, working in marketing allows me to help companies realize their objectives by telling their stories. When I can do that, it feels like success.

Debra Flickinger

PR & Marketing Strategist, Veracity

What I hate about marketing is that I love it. Because I love it, sometimes it consumes me and I can’t think of anything else.

Amy Rosenberg

Founder & President, Veracity

For me, the thing I love the most about marketing is the people. I have met and worked with so many great people over the years it is amazing.

Whether it was people in the companies I have worked for, the people that have worked for me or the clients I have worked with.

When I transitioned into digital marketing and joined SEMpdx, I was pretty amazed at how helpful the people were. We may have been competitors, but we really didn’t treat each other that way. I had so many wonderful experiences with fellow board members. They turned into a group of friends that I will hang out with even now after moving off the board and not being as involved.

Also, the people in marketing that I know and interact with online are amazing too. They seem to always say yes and even when they don’t agree with you on a strategy or tactic, they are nice about it and know there are many ways to do things.

It continues to amaze me how great the clients we work with are. Their passion for their companies and willingness to use marketing to do good things is amazing.

Planning Your Content Marketing

Planning Your Content Marketing

Combat Overwhelm By Planning Ahead With Three Key Areas: Yours, Theirs & Fluff

I’ve witnessed recurring patterns throughout my years spent helping others with their marketing. Well-meaning people tend to get stuck in either big, lofty plans or small, minute details. Both ways of getting stuck are problematic as they inhibit results. The lofty plans are overwhelming and hard to fulfill, while the detailed plans may never get completed because they’re too perfection-oriented.

The crux of my book, A Modern Guide to Public Relations, focused on the detail-oriented types. Understanding that those caught in the debilitating state of perfection will only be held back by their own good intentions, I explained the how-to of PR and the idea of simply getting started. After outlining a little bit about what makes the news, I taught readers how to take action without spending too much time planning.

However, after the book published, I realized that actually Veracity doesn’t follow that model. Instead, every retainer account is led with a plan that details specific monthly action items for paid, earned and owned media. While our plans may be detailed, I have created a paired-down planning template for those without the luxury of an outside party’s help.

My aim is to assist others to achieve marketing success, since I know it’s possible for anyone to leverage the abundance of existing opportunities. The planning template is meant to be “quick and dirty” to get those inhibited by perfection started, or to help organize the overactive brainstormers, and even to offer veterans a new approach. Here’s how to start planning.

Planning Your Content Marketing

Start With No More Than Four Audience Types

All planning should begin by considering the audience, so the template first asks you to list no more than four audience types. Sticking to a limited audience, you can better ensure your ideas will resonate with the right people. If there are multiple audiences, try to prioritize them in order of importance, so you can designate an appropriate amount of campaign focus to each.

For example, B2B organizations could consider both their trades (the industry they’re in) and verticals (the industries their prospects are in) as audiences. Although it may be counterintuitive, businesses may consider their trade as an audience because attention among their trade can bring clout.

Meanwhile, B2C organizations could consider the key demographics of each audience segment to target individually as unique audiences.

Taking an approach that narrows audiences gives you an efficient way to connect outreach ideas with the appropriate audience(s) and ensure your tactics are applied evenly or according to your priority order.


A Circular View of the 12 Months Ahead

Next, the planning template breaks down the coming 12 months in a horizontal format. By doing that, it gives you an at-a-glance view of your anticipated plans, allowing you both consistency and flexibility to make changes along with any fluctuations in audiences and the market landscape.


Consider the Three Categories: Yours, Theirs, and Fluff

You’ll see that across the 12 months, the template is broken down into three categories: Yours, Theirs, and Fluff. By thinking about your approach in each, it will hopefully help spark ideas and bring a further structure to your plans. The three categories, along with what to do with them, are explained below.


Yours: Your News and Happenings

“Yours” refers to the business or organization/entity you represent. Here, you can plot out all the new happenings with your organization or its key leaders. Since this section outlines what’s new, many of these ideas could be used for all types of marketing, even earned media because generally news coverage should be about just that the news and this is your news. While not all ideas will be strong enough for news coverage, don’t hold back. Allow yourself to brainstorm, because while not “newsworthy,” some ideas could translate into other types of marketing. It’s also okay if the month in which you’ve listed an idea changes, since marketing plans are always a moving target.


Theirs: Audience News and Happenings

In this category, consider what’s occurring around your organization or what your key audiences may be participating in. This step takes an outside look at what’s happening in your industry and the industries you serve, as well as your local community or those that are affected by your business endeavors. Include topics that will be on your audience’s radar, such as industry events for B2B companies or community events for B2C companies. At this juncture, you don’t even need to know what the level of participation may be in each event, just get it on the calendar to consider marketing around it.


Fluff: Holidays, Seasons and Awareness Days

This section is reserved for holidays, national awareness days and key seasonal themes affecting your industry and/or audience (aka “fluff”). While this applies more to consumer-facing businesses, some themes could be tweaked to resonate with both B2B and B2C audiences. For example, let’s look at a September back-to-school campaign idea for each company type:

  • A B2C food company could promote back-to-school snacks and lunches for kids that extend beyond the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
  • A B2B sales software company could promote organizational tips to start the fall successfully, because as kids go back to school, the start-anew mindset extends to adults.

Visit to find funny days, such as National Cupcake Day, or even to be reminded of major holidays, such as Valentine’s Day, that could easily be forgotten and may still be important both professionally and personally.

Plug anything relevant into the Fluff section of your calendar. You may not use any of this as a major campaign, but at the very least, it could serve as social media filler. However, as you attempt to evenly distribute your campaigns to hit audiences according to their specific allotment, you might find a very important occurrence, such as Breast Cancer Awareness month, to tie into a larger campaign.


Putting it All Together

Now that your template is filled in, you might feel that you’ve got a bunch of ideas that you don’t know what to do with. If I’d started this process by telling you the purpose of each section, I may have pigeon-holed your mind, inhibiting your creative juices. With your key dates and happenings lined up, along with your audiences’ key dates and happenings, replete with the filler found within the Fluff section, complete the following to bring more clarity:


Select Monthly Feature Campaigns

Among the three categories, highlight just one idea each month to serve as a jumping-off point for your monthly feature campaign. The idea is to tie a blog post into the feature campaign topic, plus you can build upon it for other marketing purposes. For example, since each blog should be promoted on social media at least three separate times, you’ll gain outreach volume. Moreover, the blogs could be highlighted, and linked to, in your email marketing and earned media collateral.


Sprinkle in Some Variety

However, not all of the monthly feature campaign topics will work for earned media, which is why there are additional sections within the template. Between the topics found in the three sections, there should be enough variety, not just for earned media topics, but for other types of marketing, such as podcasts, internal newsletters, speaking engagements, events and classes, and more. The Fluff section is the most useful for social media marketing, or it could add a bit of timeliness to a campaign you already have going.

It’s also a savvy strategy to tie together single campaigns found within the Yours and Theirs categories. For instance, a B2B company may be attending a trade show targeting a vertical audience (Theirs), therefore they may want to delay a press announcement about one of their major happenings (Yours) for release during the show. The B2B company can then discuss this major happening during press meetings at the show, while posting a press release to the show’s online news section.


Use Audiences to Narrow Down

If you have more than one big theme in a month (and you are unable to do two blog posts), this is where audience prioritization comes in. Now might be the right opportunity to select the topic that will reach the audience that has received the least focus. For this purpose, I have added an audience row so you can designate who is the target for your larger campaign. As you review your plan, you will be able to quickly see how evenly distributed your audience focuses are, and subsequently make the appropriate changes to ensure you achieve your desired reach.



I hope this simple framework will remove some of the overwhelm-factor that marketers know all too well. While planning can feel like a big undertaking, the investment will serve as a map to bring some semblance of control to the uncontrollable whims of both local markets and the world-at-large. Savvy marketers know plans are working documents that must allow for flexibility and nimbleness. Yet, by having a framework from which to move events and revise ideas, you’ll gain the confidence of having forethought, organization and strategy. 


Moreover, as we trudge along within the monstrously huge job that is marketing, we’ll have something to check our progress against and a framework to plan our days, which brings less stress in the end. While plotting out ideas on a grid may seem basic, that is the point. By simply jotting down what you already know, you’ll be inspired to branch out into deeper planning through more intricate frameworks. But, we must start somewhere, so starting with the basics before getting too entrenched in the details is best. May the planning force be with you!

My Coronavirus Cop-Out

My Coronavirus Cop-Out

I used to be American. In a shameless blog post I once wrote, but never posted, I bragged that I’d never taken a sick day. I qualified this by accounting the time I’d worked through the worst stomach bug I’d ever had: the norovirus. Laying on the floor, I shot off emails in between stomach cramps that doubled me over. 

While searching for blog starts left unfinished, I came across this story of pushing myself through pain, like my very own torturer. What kind of person pushes unrelentingly and then brags about it, no less? 

An American. That’s who.

While working to help rebrand a DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) company, I learned about the American way of rugged individualismwhich holds constant achievement, along with a die-hard work ethic, as hallmark values.

Pitying those who fit this description, I’ve slowly come to realize that I am one of them. However, new books, podcasts and influencers have brought me to the truth, which is that it doesn’t have to be this way.

Yet, old habits die hard.

When the pandemic hit, I reverted back to pushing myself, but this time at a deeper level, driven by an internal fear about my place within a volatile market. Over-working, over-delivering, over-compensatingfor nothing other than leftover insecurities.

Spiraling in self-pity, I wanted out. But my regressed patterns told me I needed permission to rest. The only permission I could imagine was getting the coronavirus. This was before the vaccine, when morgues lined city streets. I saw the young mothers on the news, hooked up to ventilators, fighting for breath. And yet, I secretly wanted the coronavirus.

Eventually unraveling myself, I found different ways of existing within my home’s new patterns. A new meditation spot and online exercise outlet eased my self-imposed over-delivery system.

And I did end up getting sick, as the immunocompromised often will, but never with the coronavirus. I worked through some of the milder parts of the sickness, never fully taking a day off other than holidays. Feeling dragged down, I held onto my secret wish of catching the dreaded bug. Only then would I have the permission, given by an unknown Dictator of Expectations, to rest.

But Omicron’s mild-mannered ways have enabled workers across the nation to continue from the safety of their own homes, even returning to work after a mere five days, symptom-free or not, depending on the industry. Thank you America.

This has come closer to home than news reports of hospital staff working through the illness. Acquaintances and business contacts, none of them with the Veracity team, have been showing up in Zoom calls and phone calls with the bug, sometimes giving off a sense of American pride.

Possibly I should be grateful for their dedication to our collective work. And I understand the need to keep pushing on. But my excuse from the grind has been stripped away. Afterall, my Dictator of Expectations will remember every one of these instances, comparing my performance to that of others.

But what if I refuse to fall into this trap, this American way of being? Sometimes, when I tire of the constant pushing, I imagine myself on a beach in Mexico, replacing the hustle with peace. Although, my un-fucking-shakable work ethic reminds me of one very key thing. I love my job. I love my clients. I love my team. It’s just my mind that needs to change. Therefore, I’m striving to ease my American grit, put my Dictator of Expectations on notice, and plan a relocation to Mexico, if only in my mind.

Industrial B2B Marketing with Laura Norup-Boyer [Podcast]

Industrial B2B Marketing with Laura Norup-Boyer [Podcast]

Join Amy and Laura Norup Boyer, founder of Black Bean Industrial Marketing, as they talk about how industrial marketing differs from other industries during this week’s episode of the PR Talk Podcast.

Business Culture Differences

Amy started the podcast by asking about Laura’s background. Laura explained she is from Switzerland, and when she moved to North America (Canada) it was a struggle to participate in “small talk” because in Europe the culture is much more straightforward without a filter. Amy agreed she found the same to be true when she visited Skandanavia but thought “it was refreshing” since she prefers taking a straightforward approach.

Amy went on to state, as she grew in the industry, she initially believed that fluff language made the work look so much better. Even so, she would often question the validity of fluff, which made her think, “What are we even doing?” Laura noted that when she would work with English marketers they would use fancy acronyms, which made her feel ignorant. ”When people use big fluff language, especially in the marketing world, it’s very often to throw glitter in people’s faces,” she said, adding that direct simple language is what makes the most sense.


Industrial Marketing Switch

Amy asked Laura how she came to work in industrial marketing and why she went in that direction? Laura explained that her team sat down and conducted a client audit. They made notes about their work and where they had made an impact, where they had fun, and where they made money. “We started seeing a pattern emerge of industrial business clients,” Laura said. She believes the reason B2B marketing came out on top in their audit was due to direct communication, deep relationships, and the challenge and complexity working with these clients brought.

Amy then asked Laura why she thinks industrial businesses have made more of an impact in her work. Laura explained that as a woman in a male-dominated industry, she found herself working as a filter for new industrial clients. “Companies that embrace innovation and want to make a change will be more than willing to work with a marketing agency with a woman at the helm.”


Tips for Anyone with Industrial Clients

Laura also offered these tips for marketers with industrial clients, 

  • Come from a place of empathy, since there may be mentality shifts required.
  • Develop relationships.
  • Be direct, but if not received well, pivot.
  • With supply chain issues and labor shortages at higher levels, it is time to shift focus to company culture and adapt messages.

Laura ended her tips with one directed toward industrial companies. She said, “Keep an open mind or open your mind. This is the new world and there is no going back to what it was before [women were involved, the pandemic, etc.]. Approach things from a different perspective.”

Laura and Amy go into more depth about new ideas for trade shows, Laura’s growth within the industry, current issues and other aspects of industrial marketing. Listen now to learn more about why industrial marketing was the right switch for Laura and how it might also be right for you.
