A public service announcement (maybe). Feeling Up in Down Times has received a request from Cory Ramey at Reuters that just might help you pull something tangible, maybe even something good, out of this recession.
Need some publicity for your new venture? Want to let your mother know her NYC ex-banker is thriving despite news reports to the contrary?
Reuters is looking for stories about people who are succeeding in these economic times. If you’ve started a business, changed your career for the better or found pleasure in a different pace of life they’d like you to send a short video about your experience. They’ll publish the ones they consider the best on the Reuters Your View website, and some will go out over the wire. The page will stay up as long as the recession sticks around.
If you want some publicity, a (new) place to vent, or are simply curious, take a look and see if this could serve you well in some way.
If interested, email videos to email@example.com or upload videos to http://www.reuters.com/news/yourView/upload. Copy Cory,(Corrine.Ramey@gmail.com); she just might be worrying about her job, too, and mention you heard it here, on Feeling Up in Down Times. Let us know what you think, and how it goes.
