unfortunate she wrote this article... looking through the likes/dislikes I think people have spoken. Even with the kudos from clients/former clients she made a mistake publishing this article. A professional would call this "crisis management".
Its unfortunate that one of her clients has to post on her behalf. Anyone with access to the internet knows that Home Team BBQ is a community leader and contributes to multiple causes in a selfless manner. Her article didn't do the community any favors, in fact, it made those businesses that care look "p'sed off" that they get asked all the time. A professional wouldn't have made her clients feel the need to stand up for her should her message been conveyed correctly and with respect.
Poorly written and a missed opportunity. The message is clear, but if these restaurants she's referring to have a hard time with all the requests, simply respectfully decline. I can't believe an PR professional would put this out without major revisions to her message. What it looks like is "don't bother my clients, and if you are a restaurant and don't want to be bothered, call me". Very self-serving.
