Long time Canadian but never lost that Brit accent.

I am a freelance writer specialising in Business and Internet marketing and an Online Local Business Coach. I have a lively mind, a wealth of experience and a superior command of the English language.  I can create for you high quality, engaging articles that are visible in search engines and get shared virally in social media.  You can check this for yourself by reading the SMM blog or one of the others I write, such as BPWrap or The Other Bloke's Blog

Born in the UK, I am a graduate of Cambridge University and worked in London and elsewhere in England for a few years before emigrating to Canada.  For many years, I was located in Montreal but now have relocated to Metro Vancouver and view the Internet world from Langley, the Horse Capital of British Columbia. I work with entrepreneurs and business clients, particularly those who are working in local markets.  We often start with getting the right strategy and follow through to growing the business and making the sales. I believe it is essential to be creative in not just creating a me-too business but in finding that unique selling proposition that makes you stand out from the crowd.
