Transcript of Why Charity?
Like a snowflake,
which grows from a
single speck of sand,
grows and expands...
That creativity connects with readers,
but it creates a predicament.
To flourish in an economy where
face-to-face and virtual interactions
now have the same value,
writing has to find a happy place in both John Doe’s house and on a www address.
It takes a lot of
to make a snowman
What makes a writer
Remarkable and Creative
Let’s look again at our snowflake.
A snowflake’s unique shape
is affected by every encounter it has as it falls: wind, humidity, temperature,
and other forming snowflakes.
It makes the snowflake the
unique natural object we see.
“Over the course
of its life a snowflake may
go through many different
stages …, all of them leaving their
marks on the final flake.”
An extensive and varied writing history
has given me a snowfall’s worth of
creative potential, a unique combination of
covering a wide variety of
writing and marketing communications.
Nearly 30 years of experience that
helps me see things
in a new way
You end up with memorable
copy and articles.
You see information presented
in a more imaginative way.
You find that reports can influence people
rather than put them to sleep.
when you hire someone creative with uniquely exceptional skills?
starts with a single, central
those skills requires
a wide variety of experiences
(just like the snowflake acquires
its design from a multitude of
factors as it falls.)
And this experience allows a good writer to see things differently.
This means that a writer
has to do
more than just observe
and record the details,
or exhibit technical proficiency
in one area.
This special kind of person also has to have a clear idea of the big picture
and how the details apply,
and she needs to be able to do this
on many different levels
with many different people.
That takes someone
Remarkable & Creative
And there are individuals
who are shaped in the same way by their work experience and history.
It’s like being able
to see both the
and the blanket of snow.
Or like understanding how
the snow crystal grows
and how to build
It influences new ways
of thinking and writing,
which then make it
connect the dots
(or grow the crystals)
within any kind of industry.
Which is great
if it positively
I have a record
of consistently stellar results,
so please take a look at the highlights on
Memorable writing connects
the reader with the subject,
...and it comes from
Remarkable people strive for
giving you articles and copy
as creative as snowflakes.
(Or do you just want to know why I use a snowflake as my logo?)
They incorporate the most original
and useful skills from every
encounter and assignment
to help ensure they achieve
uniquely exceptional results.
