About My Biz

My businesses are Sourdough Communications and SayCurrent. I specialize in managing content, public relations and social media efforts for businesses of all sizes. I’m always enthusiastic to start on a new project and to help a  client grow their business through smart and effective communications.

How can I help you? Ask yourself the following:

  • Not sure if and how your business should be using social media?
  • Could your website be written more effectively or search engine optimized?
  • Could a polished brochure, newsletter, email blast, press release, or industry article help you build brand recognition?
  • Might a white paper, marketing letter, ad campaign, or direct mailer give your sales a boost?
  • Is it time you revamped your brand identity with a new name, tagline, or slogan?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, I can certainly help you take your business to the next level. I’m located in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona but work with clients worldwide. With over 15 years of experience, I know what I’m doing, what works, and what doesn’t. My true strength is zeroing in on exactly what is necessary to help my clients increase business through better communications.

    Came here from Huffpost. I live in AZ and I also started freelancing as a translator 10 years ago when my husband lost his job (he started his own business since then). Hats off to your courage, talent and drive!

    Sorry about your son’s injury. I’m not a legal professional or anything, but the situation sounds like a premises liability issue to me. The owner was aware of the danger and yet left the light unprotected. We do have to watch out for our kids as parents, but something like this does happen. That’s why we have to fence our pools in, right? You may want to take some photos of the light and its surroundings just in case. I don’t know if this would be of any help but here’s what I just read about a case like this:

    • Thanks for the link. It sounds like your situation was similar to mine. That’s great that you were able to start your own business, too. I appreciate the link about premise liability. I took photos right away of the light. My concern is that someone else will get burned. I contacted the City of Scottsdale code violation team and they said that they have no jurisdiction over lighting of any kind. Seems crazy to me. It’s such a hazard.

    Hello,

    I read your story on huffingtonpost.com and I found it to be so inspiring. I am a Mom of a 4yr old and I am a current MBA student who is struggling to make it day to day. I have hit rock bottom and I have so many ideas but I don’t know how to make these thoughts realities. I need to make some money now because my fiance has had his hours cut at work and I am not working so we are afraid that by the end of the year we will be living in a shelter because we will not be able to pay our rent. Do you have any advice on how to get my business started so that I can bring in some income to help my family?

    Thank You

    • Hi Paris:

      If you’re getting your MBA, you probably have lots of marketable skills. If I were you, I’d check out sites like Elance, and 10to2 for opportunities. So many businesses are hiring freelancers for work right now because they don’t want to hire employees. And, the benefits of being a freelancer include being able to set your own schedule, getting to work from home, and getting paid per project. The more you work, the more you make. You also get to determine what your rate will be. I get paid more as a freelancer than I ever did as an employee for a company. I hope this helps. Hang in there and be as tenacious as you can. It will pay off if you stick with it!
