Introducing Twist

As many of you can see from the size of my 'baby,' my maternity leave is quickly coming to an end. The Canadian Government has ever so graciously bestowed upon me a 'Be a Mom at Home' check twice a month for the duration of my leave. It rocks. Receiving 'free' money to stay at home in my pajamas with my child. Alas, those days are soon gone and I am excited to announce that my career has taken a new turn.

I have officially given my notice at the advertising company that I have been with since 2005. They gave me a chance to prove myself when the company was still tiny and I was blessed to be able to grow alongside them. After a year away from the office I still miss the hectic pace and my colleagues, but it was time to move on.

Which segues into my big news... I have opened my own company called Twist Communications Consulting. Twist specializes in Media Relations, Media Training, Corporate Event Planning and Marketing. Don't bother to look for a site yet, it does not exist. I know, I know... you are asking yourself 'how can you be a PR professional and not even have your own site?' The answer to that is that I have already started my first contract and I don't currently have time to properly market myself. As soon as my site is live I will post a link for all to see.

I am at a good place right now. Working for myself allows me the flexibility to stay at home with Lil while simultaneously pursuing what I am passionate about. It is a win, win, situation. So if you know anyone that has communications needs (ahem, blatant self-plug), feel free to refer them my way.

Cheesy old work shot.

Wow! Good for you, Sarah! I think one of the perks of being a stay-at-home mom is being your own boss (and the boss of your little one!), so it's great you can do that with your own business, too! Sounds like you have the best of both worlds. I'm sure you'll be very successful! Keep us updated.
