I AM A STORY MINER.
I UNEARTH THE IDEAS THAT GET PEOPLE TALKING.
Everyone has a story. That’s something I’ve found in my two decades as a working journalist. I've covered new technology and entrepreneurs for such publications as Fortune, Inc Magazine, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.
By working with some of the best editors in the industry, I've learned how to uncover novel stories, tell them in engaging ways and break down what's most important to readers. I understand business and what questions to ask and what really is unusual. In fact, spotting those nuggets is one of my key strengths. A former editor at Fortune often called on me for what he called "Alsever Ideas."
Still, those ideas aren't always crystal clear to those on the inside. I've interviewed countless entrepreneurs and CEOs who didn’t know they had something unique or important to say.
SO MANY GOOD STORIES, HOWEVER, NEVER GET WRITTEN. Publications are finicky. Space is limited. Competition is fierce, and timing is everything.
Today, companies are increasingly bypassing traditional media and sharing those ideas directly with their customers and potential hires via their blogs, websites and social media. LinkedIn, specifically, has turned millions of business people into authors.
INTERVIEWS CAN DO AMAZING THINGS....
THEY MOVE MARKETS.
THEY DRIVE SALES.
THEY BUILD CONFIDENCE.
THEY SPUR CURIOSITY.
THEY EDUCATE AND INSPIRE.
THEY BECOME THE STORIES
THAT POWER THE WORLD.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU DO AN IN-DEPTH INTERVIEW TO FIND YOUR STORY?
How often do you meet a writer who digs deep, who unearths what makes your company special and who can bring your story to life? Invite me to explore your business, dive deep and find those tales that most people—even the founders—may not see. I can put it into words for your website, LinkedIn and Facebook posts, your blog, your email newsletter, your marketing collateral, your white papers. I’ll rewrite website content in your voice.
