The wisdom of Mr. Rogers

No Tags | Blog

I saw this article posted on Adweek. Yeah, I know. I too felt like it was a bit “clickbait-ish” but guess what? Everything in here was really relevant. Okay, so maybe it’s just me and my optimist outlook on life (And Mr. Rodgers) but if you have a few minutes and a quiet place, take […]

Making homework fun

No Tags | Blog

When I first saw this ad, I loved it. It made me smile. The narrator (Mark Fenske) give the perfect, somber delivery, while we watch kids having fun doing their homework.

The de-evolution of creativity?

No Tags | Blog

  As a freelance copywriter I’ve worked at a number of “agencies” and have come to the realization that there’s no going back to the days when concept was king and doing work that was just good enough, wasn’t good enough.

Strong writing in the B2B space should be a priority

No Tags | Blog

This seems like a no-brainer, right? Still, you’d be amazed at how little importance is placed on good writing. Words have become secondary to Pictures, when it reality, when both Words and Picture work together, your story will not only cut through the clutter, but close the deal as well.
