I've been called the OG of copywriters for creatives, wink—I hook up women with words as a launch copywriter & brand strategist. Even while raking in more than 7-figures since I've been at it, I believe working from a place of rest (not hustle) IS possible—and I want the same for you.
Pour some bubbly (or du café, mais oui) and read the story >

We wanted her SO badly—but she ended up deciding […]

Reading Time: 3 Minutes There are just some brides that make wedding calligraphy a cinch for invitations: Mary Michael is one of those! I’m just pleased as punch with how Mary Michael and Tanner’s wedding calligraphy turned out … I mean, I know just as well as she does how Samford University can be a good place to drum up […]
