|Motherhood and PR: An Apt Analogy
By: Doug Bedell
From down in Australia, Isabel Wagner writes about “What Motherhood Taught Me About PR (and Vice Versa)”. Noting that she’s not, by any means, the first nor last practitioner to have a baby, Isabel provides an engaging list of parallels between the two challenges.
Such as, “Multi-tasking, Trust your instinct and How to be all chipper at 6 a.m.”
Being organized is necessary as well, plus having a sense of enduring priorities. “Let’s face it,” Isabel writes, “motherhood is not always pretty. Beautiful as our little darlings might be, the reality is not exactly glamour shot quality when we are still in our PJs at 3 p.m. But in the age of Instagram and Facebook, everyone wants to present their achievements in the best possible light. And why shouldn’t we “PR” our story just a little bit – after all a T-shirt goes in the wash but these carefully styled photos last forever.”
A nice piece, Isabel.
