Why work with me?
About pages are supposed to tell you about me. I’d rather talk about you. Since I don’t know you yet, let’s talk about what’s in it for you when we team up on your project.
Let’s start here.
You get an award-winning copywriter with sales experience.
People get a strange look on their face when they find out I started in the family roofing business at 13-years old.
At thirteen, Grounds Sanitation Manager was the job. Okay, just having a little fun there. I cleaned up the roofing the crew tore off, and piled it in the truck. But it was a great place to set the work ethics.
By 15-years-old, dad was mentoring me in residential sales calls and submitting project proposals. By my early 20s I was selling commercial, industrial, and residential flat roof projects, running crews, competing with contractors who’d been bidding projects longer than I’d been alive… and beating them.
Since the day I could swing a hammer without swelling a thumb, I’ve been exposed to, or been in, business.
Eventually, I wound up adding to my business experience in the food service industry. I spent over 25-years operating a small vending business.
Today, I help companies with their B2B copy projects, specializing in sales enablement content.
Why should you care?
Sales and business experience are assets to your B2B writing projects.
- Troubleshooting and problem solving, so you have another perspective to draw from in a challenge.
- Idea creation to help keep things fresh.
- Organizational skills to keep the project flowing, and you in the loop.
- Return on Investment mindset to prevent project scope creep with no return value.
- Self-disciplined work ethic, no need to push me to get it done.
- Knowing the value of deadlines… you won’t miss one because of me.
- Serving as a positive member of your team, because that is just the way I am.
Those are business qualities rarely found in a B2B copywriter. Let alone one with sales and business experience to help you.
Almost forgot, I’m a musician too.
I’ve played acoustic guitar since I was 14-years old, played in worship bands, performed as a solo artist, been part of multiple songwriting organizations, served as Tech Director, Vice President, and President for the Minnesota Association of Songwriters, have written featured articles on songwriting education for the international newsletter, Muses News, Self-published a paid songwriting newsletter, and help acoustic songwriters through a labor of love web project at www.acoustictunesmith.com.
If that’s not enough, try this one out.
You also get a writer with gratitude, team work, and forward thinking.
You gain from decades of involvement with Not-for-Profit organizations as board member, officer, committee member on a state business enterprise committee.
When your president of a NFP, managing a team of volunteers, you learn the art of teamwork. As volunteers, you gain a heightened sense of appreciation and gratitude for everyone’s contribution to the project.
You get an award-winning writer recognized by the copywriting industry
I am a Verified Direct Response Copywriter through American Writers and Artists Institute (AWAI) a leading global authority for copywriting training.
Your projects will benefit from my Sales Enablement Mastery & Certification from AWAI.
As well the Simulated Training Certification, the Silver Level Winner from Professional Writer’s Alliance, and a 2019 AWAI Bootcamp Spec Winner.
Enough about me. There might be more awards tucked away, but the point isn’t to recite my achievements.
The point is, you need sales enablement or B2B projects completed, and it’s an honor to help you.
By now, you’ve picked up on the authenticity. What you see is what you get. After all, we’ll be working together, so you might as well know a little about me.
When you’re ready, get in touch, and we’ll see if you and I are a good fit for your project.
