"I Want Some Attention!"

Have you been spinning your wheels trying to get your book or business recognized by more people that just the folks you network with on RYZE or AuthorsDen, MySpace, LinkedIn or Squidoo, etc?

Putting you and your product in the "spotlight" can be overwhelming. BUT IT CAN BE DONE!

Free publicity, sometimes, means breaking away from tradition. Press releases are fine. They serve a purpose but if your press release doesn't capture attention in the first couple of sentences, it goes into the discarded pile. So what should you do when you're hungry for media exposure, especially when you know you've got a great book, product or business and you're excited about it?

Please join me on Thursday, February 8 when I discuss "How to Get Noticed by the Media: Breaking Away from Tradition". This is a follow-up to the call on January 25. Media Experts Raven Blair Davis of WomenPowerRadio in Houston, Louie Jones of the Louie Jones Show in Chicago and Kim Ross, CEO of Kross Media in Washington DC will join me again on Thursday, February 8 at 8pm EST to talk about what it takes for you to get your name and business the exposure it deserves.

Sign up early to guarantee your spot and invite a friend. If you’re on the call on Thursday and decide to sign up for the “Preparing for a Successful Interview” teleclasses, you will be eligible for a special discount.

OK…so here we go again….you can get noticed and we’re gonna tell you how!

To register, contact

Remember, if you WANT exposure then you NEED to be on this call! Even if you were on last Thursday’s call, you might want to sign up again for some NEW information.

Beverly Mahone is a veteran journalist, media consultant and baby boomer expert who helps fellow baby boomers and others make in-roads with the media.

Millennials Want Their Own Day

In case you haven't heard the news, there's a online petition encouraging the man they call the President of the U.S. to establish a National Millennials Day.

Self-proclaimed millennial leaders James Goodnow and Ryan Avery want to establish June 19 as a day for Generation Y to dispel the FAKE NEWS being spread about them.  They say they simply want to show those of us who have labeled them as "entitled" selfish" lazy" "narcissistic" (and other choice adjectives) that they can be important contributors to society.  Their "vision is to make National Millennials Day a day of service--a day when they reach out and help others in their communities.

 According to their website,, organizers say "With National Millennials Day, we want to turn the stereotypes inside--out.  To show that we're more GENERATION WE than Generation ME. To transform ideals into actions.  To inspire hope for the future.  To celebrate the most open…

The Tragedy and Illusion of Facebook

"Things aren't always the way they appear."  No truer words could be spoken following the tragic death of Karen Smith in San Bernardino, CA this week.  She was murdered on her job---in a classroom where she was teaching young students.

What intrigued me about this story was the fact that she and her husband killer, Cedric Anderson were black baby boomers around the same age as my husband and myself.  I was particularly interested in the posts he made on Facebook.  By all accounts, he posted regularly on Facebook about the so-called love and admiration he had for his wife.  He created an image that was clearly contrary to the murderous behavior he demonstrated when he walked into her classroom and killed her.

In a February 27th post, he posted a selfie video and said:  "I love being married to Karen Smith-Anderson!"

March 11 post, he said: "My wife Karen Smith-Anderson is an Angel!!!"

March 12: He posted a youtube song by Sade titled By Your Side and said:…

This Survey Stinks for Baby Boomers

The majority of baby boomers do not wash their underwear enough!  That's what an online survey by Mulberry Cleaners revealed recently.  The results were published in Reader's Digest.

I have to admit I was very surprised to read the results, which indicated 16 percent of middle-aged folks reported NEVER washing their underwear.  Now, 16 percent may not sound like a large number but that's still 16 percent too many, in comparison to 85 percent of millennials who said they toss their undergarments in the laundry after one or two wears.  Only 10.3 percent of millennial women said they never washed theirs, which might make sense if these young women had parents who were enablers and never taught them to do much of anything, especially how to wash clothes.

When it comes to washing bed sheets, 43 percent of women said they wash them every week, compared to seven percent of men who said they had washed their sheets only once in six months.  But even worse than that is the fact th…
