I recently asked a group of professionals to anonymously answer this question..
What is it that I do best?
Here’s a snapshot of what they said..
• “Deliver ideas and concepts clearly.”
• “Big Picture thinker who sees the “whole board”. Ability to cast clear vision.”
• “People motivator.”
• “Emphasizes clarity in practical ways.”
• “Excites people toward a cause.”
• “Message crafter.”
• “Strategic leader.”
• “Zero’s in on the core goals and then provides practical ideas as to how to move toward them.”
Over the span of my career, I have been fortunate to have worked both under and alongside some amazingly gifted people.
With this has come incredible opportunities for me to grow my knowledge base in all things operations to marketing. From moving up the ranks of a corporation starting on the front lines of a retail store to running 3 of that owner’s companies 10 years later to traveling the world teaching my class on the mindset of social media, I have been fortunate.
My experience lends itself to seek out opportunities to both help an organization develop sound operational infrastructure as well as also to architect a message that will awaken the target audience to a need that perhaps they didn’t know they wanted, but now have to have with regards to what that organization is offering.
To me, I see the operations of an organization as the infrastructure and the message the application. What I have learned over my career is that an application is not sustainable when built upon faulty infrastructure. I have also learned that a message that lacks clarity, is a message that gets lost in translation.
My experience uniquely positions me to work on both aspects of an organization. From operational development with regards to profit and loss management, building an all star team, to architecting a message for viral success, my aim is to put this to work for you and your needs.
