We had a slogan at another company – Dream big, start small. I’ve always loved that. Evokes all sorts of questions: what do you want to do? What are you good at? What is the best thing you could do? What did you want to be when you grew up? What do you want to be when you DO grow up?
I always wanted to be in the news business like my father. So romantic, it was then. I can see my dad now: perched on the edge of his desk, cigarette in one hand, scotch in the other, hat pulled down over one eye. Well, not exactly like that, but you get the picture.
What’s the plan for ExecEdits? Short term is to continue to promote the writing/editing side that is so satisfactory. We’ll add into the mix some social media promotion for a few small companies, and whatever else comes along such as small project management, teaching writing – professional and creative – communication skills, and other soft skills that help to professionalize a person/business.
In writing, the saying is “write what you know.” In business, the same thing applies: “do what you know.” What we know is language, words, grammar, writing, syntax, etc.; all of those words that most people have tried to forget since they left high school. We thrive on those words at ExecEdits.
We also believe that by presenting a clear, concise, error-free textual face to clients, a company’s stock will go up. Try it.
