In this workshop, Entrepreneur magazine editor-in-chief Jason Feifer digs into his career -- and his inbox! -- to provide a useful and revealing guide to what journalists think, what they're looking for, and how to develop a press strategy that really works.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand how a journalist thinks and what they’re looking for
