First, let me apologize for the abuse of emoticons you’re about to witness.
I’ve been working my tail off to launch a new international awards competition that will recognize the most energy efficient televisions sold around the world. My very small team and I literally built this thing from the ground up (we wrote the competition rules, developed and market tested the award brand name and logo, set-up an international round-robin testing project to contract test laboratories around the world to test the energy efficiency of nominated TVs, etc.).
The program finally launches tomorrow, so I’ve spent this week focusing on marketing, like getting the press release together for tomorrow’s announcement and securing a news feature to make sure this thing gets enough media attention. And guess what! We got an exclusive with Reuters and the story has already been picked up by the Chicago Tribune. :)
This is the first time I’ve ever been able to see a tangible outcome of all my work. It’s so satisfying. :) Can’t wait for the competition to finally be underway! I’ve been looking forward to this for months!!
