Putting a submission together is daunting. But it doesn’t have to be.

I’ve been in your shoes.

I’ve done this as an awards virgin, experiencing the fear of putting pen to paper. The blank screen. The procrastination. The unknown.

I’ve also known the pressure of holding the title. The pressure to keep reinventing and performing, year after year.

It’s a tough gig! But if business was easy, everyone would be doing it, right? So no more excuses – you rock at business, it’s time to talk about it.
