YOUR BUSINESS is a weekly Portland Press Herald column about management, finance, marketing and other business topics written by community members. Authors must be from our circulation area. Columns must be exclusive to us, 700 to 800 words in length and topical in nature. They may not be self-promotional or take a political position. They also can’t be too technical.

WE WELCOME submissions at any time. Just send your column to [email protected] for consideration. Include a bit of professional biography and attach a head-and-shoulders photo (JPEG format) to the same email.
