I’m tired of seeing talented women not rising to the highest levels because they don’t have the confidence, clarity or strategies to project themselves as true thought-leaders in their space.
I’m tired of seeing gifted entrepreneurs tie themselves in knots with different marketing tactics which inevitably fail, because they haven’t drilled down on the fundamentals of their brand or understood the power of building authority.
Your voice matters.
Your message matters.
Let’s get you out there.
Building authority isn’t about living on social media, trying to become an “influencer” or even creating a “personal brand.”
Real authority is about revealing the core of your brand.
The real reals.
Then taking that superpower and sharing it with the world.
This is the heart of the 5-Story Framework™ which forms the basis of my Message to Market Makeover program.
I’ve been an award-winning personal finance journalist, TV producer and conversion copywriter who has helped clients all over the world, from solopreneurs to major companies market their products and bank more bucks.
One of my proudest achievements is founding a social enterprise that supported and trained more than 1700 creative entrepreneurs and launched a co-working space providing affordable rent, networking and learning opportunities.
Currently also a Board member of two national business non-profits, I bring decades of experience in communications, direct response marketing, content, training and entrepreneurship to the table.
I’m also in the trenches every day, studying, assessing, testing and soaking up knowledge so that I can bring you the best of what’s working now.
Helping more women to step into their authority is my mission. I won’t let you accept a smaller version of yourself.
