  • Have existing professional and personal of local & regional contacts to leverage on in order to deliver content that is credible based on accurate sentiments on the ground
  • You are persistent and don’t get discouraged by slowing momentum or setbacks. You realize that every story has a life of its own; just because it takes awhile to get the perfect quote or find the right angle, you understand that good stories take time
