What's your business, and who are your customers?

I speak to corporations - I train teams on utilizing social media and PR to grow their awareness and sales.

Tell us about yourself

Mostly, I'm a writer. But as a kid who used to line her stuffed animals up and give them worksheets... I like to teach too. When I was about 22, I wrote on a giant posterboard in my cube, "FREELANCE WRITER & YOGA TEACHER BY 30."

When I turned 30, I had won multiple "best in class" yoga teacher awards, been certified in TRX, Pilates, Aerial Yoga, Barre, and more, and stopped teaching. More importantly, I have written two books, ghostwritten 50, and become a relatively famous journalist. (Short version of the story). So, now that those dreams are completed, I spend my time helping others achieve theirs, namely when it comes to marketing and understanding what THEY want.
