Listen – Promote – Results

February 28th, 2012 | Posted by Sara in Blog News - (Comments Off)

Listen: Everyone has a story to tell. Public Relations is all about telling great stories to inspire others. My job is to ask questions and find the aspects of your story that will help raise awareness and build your brand. We will ask you background questions to learn more about your story, objectives, and goals. Your first consultation will be without charge.

Promote: Once we review your story and product, we will develop press materials such as press releases, press kits, and  flyers to help tell your story. In addition, we will pitch your story in a creative manner to the media. What makes our promotion different is we look closely at the media outlet and change our pitches based on that target audience of the media. We will send your book to the media and follow up to those interested in the pitch.

Results: Lien Public Relations will provide a weekly highlight email to the client about objectives performed, results and comments from media, and upcoming plans. Results from past clients include national reviews, book tours with 20-30 book signings, TV and radio interviews reaching thousands of viewers, and endorsements from national personalities.

Air Show of an Experience

I’ve been doing many bucket list experiences lately… French dining, trapeze and now an air show!

Here is a picture of the type of planes we saw. IMG_0228

It was very fun.

I recommend going to visit the Fagan World War II Museum in Granite Falls, MN.

Good morning and Happy Monday!

Here is the latest news in my world. My father in law was here last week and we went to the Fagan WWII Fighter Museum and Air Show.  Wonderful show.

I recommend all Minnesotans make the trip to Granite Falls to take in this show once per year.


The show included fighters, war re-enactments and wonderful aerostunts.

Check it out next year and also go to the museum anytime to see their displays.

For news that doesn’t matter..Kim Kardashian is having a boy in December and Jake Lloyd was arrested after a high speed chance in South Carolina.  He is the boy who played Anakin Skywalter.

Radio Show

June 11th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Hi all,

Today  is my first step to possibly getting my own radio show.  I’m doing a demo in Northfield for a program called Metro Live!

I’m going to have fun with my guests and we will talk about food, books, news and anything else that strikes our fancy.

I’ve always wanted to either be a columnist or a radio show host.  I love to discuss current events from movies to books to celebrity gossip to food.  That is what this should will be all about.

To check out the radio station go to www.kymnradio.net.

Also, as a follow up to my trapeze experience last week, the Twin Cities Trapeze Center is having a show this Saturday at 8 pm.

Tickets are $5 per person.


Flying Through the Air…

June 9th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Many times people will talk about their bucket lists.  I want to travel to Australia.  I want to go bungee jumping.  I want to see Paris.   However many times people do not just do it.  I recommend just doing it.  It can be very stressful and the control is not your own but the payoff is unreal.

Last weekend I participated in a trapeze lesson in St. Paul.  I’m bruised sore and have a sprained ankle but I did it!

I highly recommend trying new things.  Get out of your comfort zone and try!

Here is the proof. I’m climbing the 22 foot ladder to the trapeze platform!

We aren’t afraid to take risks here at Lien PR.


I’m a little nervous and a lot excited.  This Saturday morning I will be flying on the trapeze.  Last Christmas I made a remark about wanting to run away to the circus.  My husband listened and bought me a gift card to a trapeze class.  Yeah!  I think!

I go Friday morning to try my hand at running away to the circus.

Here is the link for anyone wanting to do the same.

I’ll send pictures. http://www.twincitiestrapeze.com/

Why is failure a good thing?  That is the topic Mehdi Toozhy tackled in his blog featured on the Changing Behavior Network.


Mehdi’s book, Keys to Success at School and Beyond is a manual for helping your child or anyone through the tough times in school and life.  Toozhy was born in Iran but left home at age 13 to attend school in Europe.  He had to learn many life lessons very quickly.

Go to www.MehdiToozhy.com for more information.

Also, this week USA put out a great article all about publicist.  They focused on publicist in LA with the stars but it drove home the point that the life is not glamorous.

Check it out!


A Before and After Look

May 28th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Happy Throwback Thursday!

I can’t believe it’s been three years since I started getting healthy. I started my journey in the winter of 2015 by buying a treadmill and doing Weight Watchers.  I did not have a focused goal but I wanted to fit into my clothes and have my weight start with a 1 instead of a 2.

So I began my journey at 225.  I used the treadmill every night for 30 minutes with arm weights.  I also drank a ton of water.  I drank 32 ounces in the morning, and then another 32 during they day and another during my work out.

It was a struggle but the weight started to fall off.

I kept to a strict 1600 to 1800 calories per day.  I began to care about what went into my body.

I’m not going to tell you I never fall off the wagon.  Holidays are a struggle and I love sugar!  I feel bad but the next day I begin again.

Today I’m posting a before and after photo.

What a difference three years make!
