I had the pleasure this morning to see the legend himself, Richard Edelman, and hear his visions on our business (his company!) and advice for personal growth. Here are a few of my favorite takeaways:
Never be self-satisfied; have a constant search for self improvement.
I like this one particularly because it speaks to the company’s need to just be “the biggest PR firm” but to be the best. It also speaks to Richard’s character and while we’re always moving onto the next thing.
Whatever it is you want to do, you can. Just be confident about it.
This is my all-time favorite from this morning - the little vote of confidence to be true to yourself and go after whatever it is you want in life. As long as you believe in it, others will believe you.
Today was a great reminder why I like working for Edelman, the values we have and truly share across our network. We are a family and we’re an ethical company. What more could you ask for?

As you know, I’m a huge fan of Sara B. so I caught up on Jimmy Fallon and saw her peform the song on the show. I realize I hadn’t paid attention to the lyrics and just how beautiful they are. In that moment, I decided that I’m going to dance to this at my wedding. Whenever that happens.Source: Spotify

And yet they have extremely low rates of cycling related head injuries. Meanwhile, the US is among those countries that lead in both wearing helmets and head injuries. One of the main differences? Serious investments in cycling infrastructure, much of which is segregated or protected from auto traffic.
Imagine that, give cyclists a separate place to bike and they’re safe.
