Real Life Marketing for Small Towns, Small Business & You - Marketing Strategist, Writer, Speaker & Main Street Director
My passions are doing good work, zen business, gtd and living the life you create. I left a successful career in San Francisco as the director of marketing to build my own, personalized, studio dedicated to helping small business. What I left behind were pointless meetings, red tape, and budgets that were astronomical. What I gained was a sense of living my life on my own terms, the ability to help clients have real success, and the joy of saying yes or no when I needed to.
If you are ready to experience magnificent marketing and public relations for your small business I am here to make it happen. Let's make Big Ideas happen in effective and stunning ways.
I currently work with Main Street programs, write small business articles, mentor and manage marketing for numerous small businesses, designers, artists, tech companies and entrepreneurs nationwide. My goal is to continually do good work, create connections, and make you soar.
- Marketing: I deliver big marketing ideas to small business, in practical steps that make an actual difference to the bottom line. Consistently providing marketing consultation to small towns and small business in a down to earth, common sense manner - you get to make the connections and have real "Ah Ha" moments where it all starts to make sense.
- Coaching: I have developed a way of working called Solution Oriented Community/Company Organizing that explores how to work effectively, communicate well, and accomplish results without getting bogged down. It is a no holds barred way of cutting through the red tape of regular working situations and focusing completely on solutions. If your team is ready to try getting stuff done instead of talking about getting it done - SOCO is a whole new way of working.
- Writing: I have written for corporations, small businesses, blogging, press releases, bios, copywriting, advertising and more. I am a current contributor to TinyBuddha.com and NoisetteAcademy.com.
- Speaking & Teaching: Down to Earth with A Side of Inspiration: Jacqueline Wolven educates businesses and organizations on productivity, marketing, business relationships, staying focused for success, life/work balance, becoming a solution oriented company or organization, and how to stay motivated day in and day out. Her speaking style is vibrant, honest, energetic, and personal. Find out more about her speaking engagements.
I work with small businesses, artists, individuals and towns as a coach, consultant, project by project, and on long term retainer plans. We can find what works for you and your team. Let's do good work together.
