Service Description

I am an entrepreneur by day, looking for some new challenges and some new ways to contribute to good people.

Have a look at my samples and site (DaleThomasVaughn.com), see if they feel right for your vision. And if you would like to chat about your project to see if there's mutual harmony, let's find time to talk via the phone. In the end, I want to do whatever I can to make you feel comfortable entrusting your project's language, management, or strategy to someone who correctly values your bottom line.

I am a highly polished and professional strategist and writer who looks for the power of strong messaging, effective messaging vehicles, and creative content strategy. Whether you need a news release written or a full website built, I can manage any project from beginning to end.
