STEM is now, and will continue to be, a part of every aspect of our lives. Let’s consider: Darkness slowly envelopes the oceans, land, and life that inhabit the earth. Within that darkness lie sparks of light that dot the darkness like a leopard’s coat. This ritual takes place every evening as the day turns to night.
PRP is a completely virtual company, and we’re not alone. A recent New York Times report found that 43% of Americans are now working remotely.

You texted me two seconds ago. If you’re shaking your head thinking you don’t know someone like this, it’s probably you.

Two weeks ago, three members of the PR with Panache! team hopped on a plane to Boston to join more than 24,000 other marketers at Inbound 2018. The conference was a whirlwind of educational sessions, networking, and food trucks (yes, the food trucks were a very important part of my experience).
Hubspot founders Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah focused their keynotes on two ways businesses can grow better: Moving from the marketing funnel to the marketing flywheel, and implementing the customer code.
