Public Relations is not for propaganda; Public Relations is to promote a product HONESTLY.
Character: “To hold firm to one’s values, no matter what storms may come or the norms may be.”
In a nutshell, I am a C-level Business Director who figures out what competitors in your industry are doing and then crafts a plan to position your company in a niche role. I have helped twenty companies to launch with CEOs who just had a few ideas scribbled on a notepad. I have used my BA in Secondary English Education from St. Olaf College in MN to open doors for me in business development, marketing online and in print, authoring and proofreading books, networking, and writing provocative communications that inspire people.
My work has not been pegged in one industry: I have worked with those in the building industry, those with nutrition supplements for humans and pets, children’s book authors, real estate investors, USMC Corp Veterans who wanted a website for the leagues, the wedding industry, and even a solar panel company/energy industry. I have engaged in networking at the Chamber of Commerce and business events and fairs on behalf of my clients, in addition to creating their websites, and social media accounts. I am not, however, on any form of social media as of September 1, 2021; read Weapons of MATH Destruction by Cathy O’Neil and you too will understand why: by its current design, it is a misuse of PR that targets certain demographics and increases inequality. I have worked on ad design for print and digital PR, created PowerPoint presentations and spoken before groups, while also creating newsletters and curriculum to teach a particular group a particular skill. Named top female blogger in 2010, I have developed a Blueprint for Success for female entrepreneurs; originally made in 2009, I am now revamping it for 2021 since so many people are working remotely. In addition, I have authored two books and written scripts for radio and TV spots. My thinking is both long and short-term when helping a business launch and I think the backbone of our US economy are small businesses who yet rely upon a vibrant economy to grow.
I have already taken both the Briggs test and Predictive Index and I am a Commander, Mastermind and Teacher, which simply means once you entrust me with a position, I take complete responsibility for it, from start to finish. My portfolio is on a protected page and the PW is on the second page of my resume. In addition, you will find information about me on my husband’s website: TheCarpenterCraftsman.com. As a USMC-veteran-owned company, he and I both support our men in blue and our military. My focus to date has been on small US companies where the product is Made from start to finish in America. Call me a PATRIOT, for I want my own country to flourish in any business deal made in 2021. Here is how we define globalism: American companies, hiring Americans, at a living wage, selling products to those overseas at the highest allowable profit.
I will not be taking any vaccines as a precondition for employment. I will wear a mask whenever I am asked to meet with your clients.
