-Marketing plans
-Sales collateral (brochures, newsletters, articles, emails, etc.),
-Web content
-Blog posts
-Market research

All are promptly delivered with attention to detail and a flair for captivating readers.

I have over 20 years of sales and marketing experience and have written hundreds of product descriptions, brochures, emails, articles, technical documents, blog posts, and more.

As a business consultant for many years I have boosted hundreds of companies beyond their goals. I am eager to help you define and exceed your goals as well.

I have assisted dozens of inventors and tech entrepreneurs in researching and creating business plans and investor presentations. My clients have received millions in funding.

One of my clients, MDot Network, won Amazon.com's 2010 contest for the best business plan and pitch in the world. In this contest they competed against 1,500 entrants from around the globe and were judged by Silicon Valley's top VCs. They won it all. And they later secured a very lucrative sale of the company. The president of MDot stated: "We couldn't have done it without you."
