First-person stories wanted

Have you faced and overcome a challenging situation that others might learn from? Would you like to write about it for the Rochester Business Journal?
If so, then we’d like to hear from you. Selected stories will be published in our First Person column, a monthly feature in which local businesspeople relate–in their own words–experiences and lessons that have shaped their professional development. The goal is to inspire and inform others through first-person accounts.
Your story might be something about launching a new product, securing financing or handling a personnel issue. It could be about a mistake you made that you’ll never make again, or an idea you had that made your company more productive. It can be about anything that has contributed to your company’s growth.
Fax a brief synopsis (no more than a page) of your story to Associate Editor Catherine Roberts at 546-3398, or e-mail it to RBJournal@aol.com. If your story is selected, we’ll ask you to expand it for publication.
First Person synopses may be submitted year-round.
