Hey, you rebel.
I see you reading those business books. I know you’re staying up late watching TED Talks and listening to those podcasts on your lunch break.
You want to build something you can be proud of. You’ve got that aching desire to do something different.
I feel it too.
Living the creative life takes guts, and dragging a business into the realm of the living takes some serious dedication.
But at the end of the day, what’s the foundation that makes all of those efforts pay off?
The businesses that succeed in the long term are those that are able to capture the hearts, minds, and imaginations of their audience. Whether you’re just getting started or you’re pushing your longstanding business to even greater heights, I’m here to help you bring your story to life.

I’m Jessie (just Jessie, not Jessica—I’ll show you my birth certificate if I have to), and I run this shindig from my hideout in sunny Arizona. I say hideout because every house is a hideout when it’s 120 degrees outside.
Not all that long ago, it seemed my career was on its way to corporate glory. I cut my teeth writing for brands like Time Warner Cable and the Gore-Tex Brand while working at one of the largest advertising agencies in the Southwest. Then, at 23, I took a job running marketing for an Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Company.
But despite the increasingly impressive titles, I felt like I was on a fast track to somewhere I had no desire to go. The traditional workplace just wasn’t doing it for me. I felt like I was trying to squeeze myself into someone else’s idea of a great life.
So I took the leap. No, I didn’t become a millionaire overnight, and no, I don’t work from Cancun. But I do get to help creative entrepreneurs grow businesses they’re proud of, and that brings me immense joy. I also get to raid the pantry for snacks all day, so, you know, #win.
My mission is to help freelancers and entrepreneurs tell their stories, attract their ideal clients, and grow their businesses through rock-solid web copy.
Pretty cool, right? I love working with you guys.
So anyway, it’s nice to meet you! If you haven’t yet, I encourage you to sign up for my emails with the form at the bottom of this page. I write every week about what I’m learning about running a business, and that’s the best way to make sure you don’t miss any of it.
I’m always working on new projects for both clients and my email subscribers, so if you want to see what I’m up to now, check out this page.
I’m also (way too) active on Twitter these days. Come say hi—I’d love to turn this into a real conversation.
Because isn’t genuine communication what it’s all about?
