"You are an inspiration to me. As a "create-a-preneur", I look forward to the day that I'm able to inspire the wide variety of people you have to think out of the box, create something that wows people for their events and stretches them beyond where they are to where they want to go. Your book has been that for me, and I consider you a mentor."
Barbara Ann Hyde Thompson, Owner, Hyde-N-Seek Designs, Columbus, OH
Personality. I have one, and so do you. But does your company? Your organization's ability to articulate its personality has never been as important in today's one-to-one technology-driven, instant impression world. In addition to applying the Real You process, I help clients articulate themselves clearly in our 140 character-or less-environment. It's the era of 360 marketing, consumer control and constant change. It's exciting, or should be.
Now is the perfect time to harness your real competitive edge.
It's time to tap into the softer side of business, challenge what's always been done, and recreate your business for the future. I created the first female-focused brand in real estate, and the industry's first consumer Web 2.0 portal (patent-pending). Before that, I showed an Inc. 100 firm and franchisor that women were their customers. I'd love to put my homeschooled Harvard MBA (my PhD dad was a Harvard marketing professor and headed Cap Gemini of North America) and 20-plus years of marketing experience to work for you.
