Sneak Peek for the Stein kids

Let me tell you a secret. You never know what conditions you might run into with an outdoor portrait session…

The weather could be utterly humid.

The balloons could all pop before we could use them.

BUT.

The kids? They were perfection.

John and Julia were fun and flexible during their outdoor session, balloons and humidity be darned.

Here’s a Sneak Peek:

WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
I'm where I am today because I kept following my passions without worrying about the HOW and WHAT. I studied English and Creative Writing at St. Norbert College without having an ideal career in mind. I stumbled upon a public relations internship with the De Pere Chamber of Commerce which I thoroughly enjoyed! After that, I had four more internships in social media and digital marketing. My final internship turned into my first job at a digital marketing agency in Appleton. There, I was able to combine my love for writing and words with digital marketing. After spending a few years in digital marketing, I discovered my passion for entrepreneurship and started my own business where I only offer content marketing service. 

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
Sometimes people think I only post on social media, but it goes way beyond that! What I build with my clients is their content strategy to achieve their business goals and social media is just one part of that. 

NAME ONE THING THAT YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
 wish people knew that marketing is part of an experimental and researched-based process that grows your business. There is no one-size-fits-all. I have so many business owners ask "When is the best channel? When is the best time to post?" and the answer is it depends on your specific audience.  It does take some time and some trial and error before you find the best strategy for your business! 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Connecting with my clients

Tosa West HS | We'll miss hearing Maya sing

When you say “talent just oozes out of her,” THIS is the girl you’d be referring to. Maya Greenberg is a whip smart, musical powerhouse. She’s president of the senior class, earns lead roles in all the plays and is a multi-year force to be reckoned with on one of the top AAPSE groups in the country.

As if that weren’t enough, she just happens to be drop dead gorgeous.

World, meet Maya.

Maya, go get that big world out there. It’s yours for the taking!

ThomasCauley-actor-headshot.jpg

WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL VENUE?
Theatre, film, performing arts groups, etc.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
After having a lifelong interest, and strong encouragement in the high school years. I decided to dedicate myself to performing.

First getting my Theatre BFA (Primarily musical theatre, but also studying stage combat, commedia dell-arte, shakespeare, dance, just to name a few) 

Followed up by an acting apprenticeship at Williamstown theatre festival.

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
That it's straightforward. Audition, and either you get it or you don't. 

When in truth, you never stop training. You never stop learning. And you never stop struggling in some way or another. 

NAME ONE THING THAT YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
That there's always more than meets the eye.

People who've seen me dance don't always know about my singing or classical work.

The same for people who've seen my classical and other speaking roles.

Having an ace up your sleeve skill-wise can be nice, but it's also a double edged sword.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
The variety and constant inspiration

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN YOUR INDUSTRY?
Don't let the initial rejections get to you. Every audition is a learning experience. And never be afraid to reach out.

WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK THAT YOU THINK I SHOULD READ RIGHT NOW?
The Dude and the Zen Master by Jeff Bridges & Bernie Glassman
