The soft skills of a successful professional

July 12, 2017

There are three key elements in my professional life that I credit for my continued success as a marketer and content creator.

Best Places to Write

October 18, 2017

 

It’s challenging to do the same type of task each day in the exact same spot. As a content creator, I'm writing everyday. The type of writing I do changes — sometimes it’s an email, other days it’s blog posts, and there are even times where I spend an entire day doing research in preparation to write. Regardless of the content type or the subject matter, my time working is spent with my computer, typing away…and I love it. I’m actually doing what I love to do, but there are days when...
