I am a marketing consultant and professional freelance writer who has over 20 years experience in the industry. I work exclusively with a few clients at a time in order to offer personalized service. My focus is helping writers and authors establish and promote a professional online image. This includes set up and maintenance of personal websites and social media sites. In addition, I offer copywriting services for online article placement, blogs, marketing materials, news releases, social media posts, etc.
As a published writer, I have written articles on book publishing and promotion, how to get free publicity, blogging, social networking, marketing, business planning, how to write news releases, and other topics. In addition, I have written several business profile pieces. My articles have appeared in many publications, including national and local magazines, newspapers and websites.
In 2000, I started an image management and public relations firm catering to authors and entrepreneurs. I grew the company to six employees over a period of two to three years and worked with national authors and publishing firms throughout the United States. As a creative employer, I was recognized by many publications, including the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), and The Oregonian and the Associated Press, for my innovative employee benefits package. In 2008, I was voted a Top 10 Boss by Women’s Business Boston Journal.
In 2008, I founded The Mom Entrepreneur (TME), an online support group for women balancing motherhood and growing a business. In that same year, I began advocating for family life in the state of New Hampshire through my blog, Enjoying Life with Kids in NH, which highlighted the reasons why families with young children should consider making the state their home. In 2009, I added The Mom Entrepreneur Co-op Shop (TMECS), and in 2010 co-created a contest to celebrate entrepreneurial moms and all they do to birth and grow a successful company while balancing family life called the Business Baby Shower (BBS). In 2013, I sold TME, TMECS and BBS and began focusing on my next adventure, Family Travel Stories. I returned from a seven month cross-country journey with my family on April 1, 2015.
My skills are a perfect match for clients targeting mom entrepreneurs, business professionals or who have written books about traveling.
