Day One ... Looking Ahead

So the little mom and pop advertising shop I have written for going on three years now just downsized to one less copywriter - me. Now the pessimistic Amy of old could have really been tripped up by this little bump in the road. But somehow, the new, 40+ older-and-wiser Amy is seeing it as a blessing in disguise ... maybe not for the short term, but further down the road.

I have found during the past three years that I truly love to tell people's stories. It was so exciting for me to learn interesting things about clients - especially those "under the radar" businesses who were just going about their day doing great things like it's nothing at all. Case in point - Comprehensive Prosthetics and Orthotics. These people are truly amazing individuals who change people's lives every single day. I had the distinct pleasure to write a feature story about two of their inspirational clients for the Healthy Cells publications in Bloomington and Peoria. Check out the story on my website as well as other items in my portfolio.
