What You Get

You get 3 or so emails a day with reporters looking for expert quotes that, depending on your field of expertise, you will be able to provide.

Here’s a query I just got for small business owners, please note the deadline is 07:00 PM EST – 9 May, 2011:
Summary: Real-Life Small Business Mistakes & What Small Biz Owners Learned

Name: Annie Mueller (AmEx OPEN Forum)
Category: Business and Finance
Media Outlet: AmEx OPEN Forum
Deadline: 07:00 PM EST – 9 May

I’d like get input from and possibly interview several small
business owners on this question: what big mistake(s) have you
made in your small business, what happened, how did you recover,
and what did you learn? I’d prefer to hear directly from small
business owners. I’ll handle as much as possible by email and
follow up with phone interviews as needed. Please send me a
brief reply to the above questions. Thanks! Annie Mueller
