“After a false start by another writer who wasn’t up to the job, I called Steve. Not more than five minutes into our conversation I realized I had found exactly the right person to help. Steve has helped me with naming and creating a concept for my blog, develop a strategy to launch it as well as writing the article. He has a unique ability to understand my business and exactly how to tell my stories with high impact. He was/is able to get inside my mind and become the voice of my brand. His savvy, natural talent for extracting the DNA of my business and how I want to communicate it to my clients in a unique and compelling manner was impressive. I really enjoy collaborating and working with Steve as both a professional and a smart, easy-going and clever guy. I highly recommend working with Steve. You’ll be very glad you did. And you’ll get world-class work.” Corey Harlock CEO, KeyHire Recruiting Solutions
