Looking for advice from PR & Marketing leaders, how do you convince senior leadership that PR matters even though efforts don’t always lead to direct sales? We are a small DTC company with a complex product offering. We hired a PR agency about 1.5yrs ago when a big competitor popped up in our industry. I still get questions from number-focused execs about how a feature in The NY Times helps us even though we may not see direct membership/sales spikes within 24hrs.

Random story - been mostly isolating but got a corneal abrasion (tried taking out a contact but contact was already out 😒 ) and went to see my opto.

Suffice to say it was a very pleasant visit, and my valentines date will be a return visit to check on healing 🥰

I’ve been sober a year now, and someone recently reached out to me about not drinking. When I suggested AA, he said ‘washed out people with nothing to lose’ wouldn’t comfort him. And that it was a ‘scared straight’ approach. I know his is a super harsh and ignorant opinion, but I just want to say if you hold it, it’s so far from the truth. Regardless of age, I’ve met some of the coolest unique people I’ve ever come across in aa, and I just felt sad people might hold that opinion of it in 2021

Struggling with this, I have no sober community as I’m in a suburb with average AA access and haven’t connected with anyone at meetings. Zoom meetings are good but you don’t build 1:1 connections.

My husband is an alcoholic and it’s getting worse with the holidays. He’s started every day drinking high alcohol-content IPAs as early as 8am. And he drinks them all day and all night like soda. He did AA when he was younger but is now vehemently against it. He is high-functioning. Has a PhD from MIT and works for a venture capitalist firm. I wondered how he gets through the day, but he started to come home early (mid-afternoon) and immediately open a beer while working. What should I do?

Went for a pre-employment drug test yesterday. They never asked me if I was on any medications. I had to ask them and was told "oh yeah, just put any you may think make a difference in this text box." I put Xanax, Flexeril, and gabapentin. All of which are prescribed and used as directed. Now I'm terrified that I should have put ALL my meds, to including my psych meds. I've been sober over 12 years and never touched drugs (just booze) but I'm having a full blown panic attack.
