Turning words into money. 

Well-crafted web pages, blog postings, client stories, fund-raising proposals, sales letters, etc. turn word into money when they connect you to the client (or member, donor, customer, etc.) or potential one.



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


Does the world need to reform?  Does it need change?  Definitely!  That is what drives your passion and your work.  It is what emboldens your organization, whether for profit or nonprofit.  You work hard, empower your skills and tackle every new day to make a difference, to make a change.  You do it alone, you do it with others and you do it when you…

…Connect. Persuade. Engage. Inspire.

You are leaving money and other support on the table by not connecting to your team, stakeholders, clients and potential clients in meaningful ways.  Connect by crossing the generational gaps, persuade others to buy because of the value of what you offer, engage others to action, inspire performance.  Passion.  Pass. It. On.  PASSItON:  Success for you and your organization.


Connect. Persuade. Engage. Inspire.

Collaborative strategies and content for:  content marketing, storytelling, blogs, social media, sales and fundraising materials, student recruitment (including of alumni to send their children or grandchildren) … connecting the prose to the passion of your organization.

Your business’ team, your organization’s members, your church’s congregation…all working together to effect change with energy, passion, commitment and faith.  PASSItON!  Here’s how:  three things to do, one way to do it!

A Powerful Thought

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”  ~Sophia Loren




“…how much I gained from your take on creativity. I have been studying creativity intently for years now, so it was awesome to catch sight of some new inroads…your methodology with the Memories to Memoirs ™ seems to combine the left and right brain. It is not just brainstorming, but more organized and the lists play off each other and help me see the layers involved in examining my world.” Keddy Ann Outlaw


Proud of charity partnership with Project Joy and Hope, providing support and empowerment to prevent and relieve suffering for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.  Check their Project Joy & Hope Capital Campaign, and support if you can.  (I hope you like the brochure content…I wrote it!)
