About PatryshaSolid and Savvy Solutions for Unconventional Professionals
You might think that the about page of an about page writer would be spectacular.
Sorry to disappoint, but I too suffer from that whole “what do I say that makes me sound smart without sounding like I’m bragging” thing that so many of my clients suffer from. I thought about hiring a professional myself, but I decided to go the other direction and just speak in my own voice. I don’t get to do that very often, you know.
My name is Patrysha – that is Patricia with a y – and my why is encouraging marketing excellence in unconventional professionals through empowerment, education and example.
That’s quite a mouthful, isn’t it?
What it means is that I support passionate and skilled business owners who love what they do, but hate the marketing part of things.
Here is where I put my nearly 20 years of small business marketing experience to work helping my clients navigate the new realities of digital and traditional media. I work with movers, shakers and dreamers with small budgets and hesitancy over computers.
I’ve been there, done that and lived to tell the tale. (In everything except the computer hesitancy part – I started playing with computers long before it was cool!) Unlike many other geeks – computer, marketing and otherwise – I’ve worked to maintain the ability to translate it into plain English.
My aim is to help you market your business through education & empowerment and example. I do that by using my writing and teaching talents to promote small business owners and through individual and group coaching and training sessions.
