I admit it. I was SUPER jealous of the cool avatar that 9 Lives Illustrations created for Sandra De Freitas, Tech Coach for Coaches.
And then when I was researching the Style Guide and I came across Grammar Girl, I thought, “Pow! Foiled again!”
So when I saw a Twitter post about the 2009 Small Business Super Hero contest the other week, I jumped at the chance to express my inner super hero!
The contest was put on by the folks who make BatchBook, my customer relationship management program.
Congratulations to the contest winners, Chadd Bennett of RetroRazor (first place), Ed Basconi and David Jones of KitBook (second place) and Dan Gellert and Randall Green of jitterbug.tv (third place).
And now I’m pleased to introduce you to Word Woman, as I described her in my contest entry:
There they are again, those menacing ideas. Seemingly helpful, with the potential to grow your business and rocket you to super-stardom as an expert in your industry, they seduce you with their creative appeal.
All of a sudden, you’re tangled in their confusing web, asking what should I do first? Why does this sound so funny when I read it out loud? Why can’t I seem to finish writing this article? What should I say on my website? How can I turn these ideas into a product?
Relax, dear coaches and other small business owners! Linda Dessau, Founder of You Talk, I’ll Write, is on the case! Witness her super powers of word wrangling, mind reading, hope igniting and overwhelm taming! Watch her connect far-reaching ideas in a single conversation. Join her and make the leap from ideas to income.
OK, now it’s your turn – who would you be as a super hero? What makes you a super hero to your clients and customers?
