A few months ago, I had the wonderful occasion to meet a woman named Mariette Edwards after presenting via webinar for the good folks at Practice Pay Solutions. Mariette's gift to share with the world is to guide people to do their own great work in the world. Working together, we found the right words to tell her story at www.doyourgreatwork.com. Last week, she send me a post card to say thank you for our work together, and the invitation was to visit her newly branded website that tells her story. Her message was short and sweet: “Nancy, it all came together with your bio. Clearly you are doing your great work!”
When clients take time to send me handwritten notes on personal stationery, I know I am doing something right. That feels just great.
Just today, I heard from another satisfied client, Gigi Centaro. Gigi engaged me to prepare a speaker sheet to support her success after enjoying the first session of the bio and branding wow now tele boot camp concluded in the spring. Here is what Gigi had to say about our work together:
“The first thing I requested of Nancy when I engaged her services was a speaker sheet. Although I'm an author and I'm good with words, I was having trouble putting my passion to paper. I wasn't able to show myself in the best light. It's impossible to see yourself and your work clearly. Nancy spent over an hour on the telephone interviewing me to get the heartbeat of my speaking style and message. She took that information and created a first draft of my speaker sheet. I was thrilled with the words she found to describe my topic. They were witty, clever, fun and engaging. I did some revisions and sent it back to Nancy. She then took the best of my changes and added even more of her brilliance. The result was a speaker sheet that is dynamic, clear, exciting and attention getting. Nancy has a gift with words. She comes up with ideas and concepts that are novel and powerful. She generously gave additional time on the phone brainstorming and giving suggestions. She certainly gave value beyond what I had expected. You can't see your work clearly. You need someone to shine a spotlight on you to make your work come alive. Nancy Juetten is someone that will make you shine and allow you to stand out from the crowd.”

It really does light me up to know that my word wizardry can be unleashed to support the success of really great people who have their own great gifts to share with the world. With Labor Day fast approaching and busy families scrambling to get a lot of things done to prepare for a demanding fourth quarter and chaotic school year, the timing is right to take more action. That's why I am encouraging Mariette and Gigi to prepare and share press releases and story pitches for the media that are packed with useful tips and suggestions to guide people everywhere to benefit from their sage advice in perfect timing for the Labor Day and “back to school” windows.
When broader audiences learn about these fine people and the missions they are here to serve, the buzz will build, invitations will flow, and prosperity will soon follow. It's just a matter of preparing and sharing their stories with the right audiences to benefit and sharing the information in a way that is timely, newsworthy, interesting and relevant. Step by step, one inspired action at a time, success will flow. With inspired women such as Mariette and Gigi, I have no doubt.
If you need to bring in the reinforcements to reflect your own brilliance in a way you may not be able to articulate on your own, I am here to serve YOUR great work. Get in touch, and let's make it happen in perfect timing. My email is nancy@AuthenticVisibility and my phone number ( PST) is 425-641-5214.
