Empowering Revenue in Challenging Times

The secret?  Empowering and enabling everyone on your team to be a successful part of the sales process AND connecting to clients (retention) and potential clients (attraction) with carefully crafted words developed based on product and client research.

Receive insights, inspiration, immediately useful info regularly

and receive the full version of “Go First…,” written for fundraising but it applies to sales, too!

Sales Training Transformation

Everyone on your team has a role in your business’ sales success.  Everyone.  Provide them the insights, knowledge, confidence and inspiration to empower their success being the people they are in the roles they have.  Efficient, effective, affordable and guaranteed program.  Applies to nonprofit fundraising, too!  (millions of dollars proves it)


The right words bring you money; I write them.

Fundraising:  proposals, case statements, campaign or initiatives documents
Sales:  product descriptions, letters (product, services, memberships)
Marketing:  content marketing, web pages, blog posts, newsletters, client or team member profiles

Persuasive, informative and engaging writing based on an understanding of your organization or business, and focused by an understanding of your donors, supporters, clients, and customers.



Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon.
Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted,
And human love will be seen at its height.
Live in fragments no longer.
Only connect…

–E.M. Forster, Howards End


Connect. Persuade. Engage. Inspire.



The success of your organization and its services make the world a better place.  Thank you for effecting change…
