    Hi Brad,

    I am a young professional, corporate director, entrepreneur, speaker and blogger that is looking to get some exposure and expand my audience. I enjoy reading your blog, in particular posts related to time management like “Doest thou love life? Then do not squander time. Time is the stuff life is made of.” I like the mix of the philosophical and practical in your posts (like “Thoughts on Graduation” from a few months ago).

    I wanted to see if you would be open to me writing a guest post on your blog, since there is some clear crossover between your audience and mine and I feel like I could offer something to your readers.

    My blog, call Young Professional’s Edge (YP Edge) is focused on giving young professionals career (and life) advice to help them jump start their careers the right way. Feel free to check out http://ypedge.wordpress.com for some additional information on the concept and to see some of my posts.

    When I graduated from college I realized that there were not many resources specifically tailored to young professionals to help me adjust to “working life,” so through trial and error I ended up coming up with some pretty good best practices that made me successful.

    * I was appointed Regional Vice President at a Fortune 10 company last year, before I turning 28.
    * Since I graduated a few years ago I have managed over 110 different people (and organizations as large as 60).
    * I have worked in many job functions including: business development, strategy, sales, marketing, customer service, sales operations and network operations.
    * In college, I taught a course called “Leadership and Organizational Dynamics” to fellow undergraduates at the business school while also being president of various business clubs and a business fraternity.
    * I have started a few companies (including: http://Pong360.com and http://FlagdownTaxi.com) and am involved in numerous community organizations

    …basically, I have some good experiences that will be very insightful to your readers.

    I would be more than happy to collaborate with you to determine the best topic to write on, if you had anything in mind. Here are a few ideas off the top of my head:

    * The most effective way to get a performance review
    * Concepts around branding yourself
    * Getting buy-in on your ideas
    * Deciding when to stay vs. leaving a certain job/company
    * Coming out on top during an organizational change
    * The best way of mixing work and your personal life/socializing with co-workers

    I would be very excited if you would be willing to write a guest post on my blog as well.

    Feel free to email me back of give me a call whenever you get a moment.

    I hope you had a great weekend and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
