This has been an amazing week for me, actually it’s been an amazing year for me. The closing of 2018 and the reality of 2019 has set in and I simply could not be more excited about the future of Resident Press.
I’ve never been one to boast awards. They are nice to receive and it’s certainly nice to be recognized. There is no plaque, however, for the greatest award-TRUST. Owner and Publisher, Jason Baggett and I have had many conversations about the value of trust. The old saying, “trust Is hard to gain but easy to lose,” is so true.
I covet that trust! To some reporters, its just a story. They come in, get what they need, even if they use two seconds of a 2 hour interview. They may or may not get the total picture, but they got what they “needed.” This gives media a bad rap, and rightfully so.
When I begin building those relationships, and when they say–you’re not like (big media) that’s success to me! Established relationships I celebrate, most of them as friendships now. What a gift and what a rewarding experience! Thank you to all who trust not only in my reporting, but us as a news outlet.
