Fish in on the menu….
Doing something sustainable to help others is awesome. Even better if it helps you grow your business, too! Today’s a good day for Me ‘n You to begin.
I’ve translated my years of marketing communications expertise into a turn-key marketing and public relations system. You bring your team of employees, board members and volunteers. We can teach your team valuable skills that will make them even more motivated to promote - and build - your organization.
Marketing, public relations, e-mail marketing campaigns, social media, blogs, web content – there’s a lot of ways we can build your organization’s brand. Browse my affordable MENU and please contact me to put your small business, or a charity that you support, on the road to success. Let’s go fishing!

What would you give to be that seagull on the pig’s back? Or the pig for that matter?
Not a care in the world! Or in other words, peace of mind.
As Abraham Maslow explained it, we’re driven by our basic needs, including safety and security. The more areas in our lives that we can safeguard, the more we can enjoy peace of mind.
That’s why most of us take the necessary steps to keep ourselves safe and secure – by keeping ourselves and our families insured against all kinds of risks – to our lives, livelihoods, health, cars, homes. There are two more areas in your life that you may not have considered – being vulnerable in the legal arena, and becoming a victim of identity theft. Check out these solutions and contact me. I’ll be happy to help.
You can use Maslow’s theory in your modern-day marketing strategy, to help identify your customers and meet their needs.
I love to train non-profits and small businesses in marketing and fundraising. Please contact me to find out more about how my system can help you, or a charity that you support. I’m also available to help with your marketing and public relations writing and social media projects.
I hope the rest of your week is chill – like the pig and the seagull.

"Which foor do you lead off with?"
"Which side of the bed do you sleep on?”
“Which wrist do you wear your watch on?”
The answer has to be “the left or the right.” One or the other. Just like life.
We face choices all the time – yes or no, go or stay, now or later …
Today, I had the choice to share this exquisite work of art by my friend and renowned artist, Timothy Brooke, or – instead – a picture of a neon sign that proclaimed, “Work Harder!”
I think I made the right choice - don't you?
I also made the choice to give you a complimentary checklist that will help finetune your marketing communications strategy. Let me know what you think.
My choice is helping non-profits and small businesses by training their stakeholders in marketing and fundraising. Please contact me if my turnkey system could help you, or a charity that you support.

Did you read about how cats see a square marked out on the floor and can’t resist sitting in it? If not, check it out here.
It made me think – how much time do we spend trying to think OUTSIDE the box? Sometimes, INSIDE the box works even better!
Instead of looking for answers OUTSIDE our own circle, we could find them right here, in the people we work with every day. People who are already passionate about our cause. Our employees, customers, funders.
Contact me to find out how YOUR teams can play a vital role in your marketing, fundraising and public relations solutions.
I’ve developed a sustainable system that gives you step-by-step instructions, and can be replicated again and again.
Together, we can grow the skills of your stakeholders, while growing your organization’s bottom line.

You’ve already got your non-profit or small business up and running, and your vision is beginning to take shape.
But it’s not easy…
You’re juggling client service, employees, marketing, finance, and a host of other operational Must Do’s. You wish that SOMEONE would just wave a magic wand and make it successful already.
I feel your pain! And you’re in luck…
Because right under your nose are the people who are going to make your organization awesome! They’re going to have people talking about it, believing in it, advocating for it, recommending it. They’re going to bring in the customers, donors or supporters – and the money! – that you need.
These people – YOUR TEAM – are your own employees, board of directors, volunteers, and even your clients!
How? Together, we will develop an annual marketing plan, that will train your TEAM to implement the plan. I’ll provide a step-by-step system, with templates, task lists, timelines, scripts and checklists. It’s efficient – and also priced affordably with your budget in mind!
This just makes sense! Why give a man a fish when you can teach him to fish?
With more than 15 years’ international success in non-profit and corporate management, I’m looking forward to sharing my vast knowledge and experience about fundraising, marketing, and public relations. What works, what doesn’t, and how to prioritize.
This week only (in honor of National Small Business Week - and to celebrate my birthday!), I am offering a FREE consultation to the first 10 organizations who contact me. I will meet with you (if in the South Florida area) or we can Skype or teleconference.
Let’s do it! Contact me now!
May the Fourth be with you!
