OK, here is the reason why I have not posted in over a week. I am pleased to announce the official launch of my company, Twist Communications Consulting! You can check out all of the action on my new site at

Ever since I decided upon my career path people have asked me 'what exactly do you do?' A Marketing Communications Specialist sounds like a made-up job doesn't it? Here is a what I do (put in simple terms). Anytime you read an article in the newspaper about a company, celebrity or a product, often times there is a person behind the scenes (besides the reporter) who has tried to make the coverage come to fruition. I am that person. I write press releases and call/email reporters with story ideas about my clients. I also do things like writing for websites, writing brochures and coordinating clients' booths at trade shows.

Even though our family will soon be re-locating to the San Francisco Bay Area, I can take on clients in both Canada and the US. The beauty of my business is that I just need access to a phone and my computer. I can work anywhere in the world while bumming around in my pajamas until noon. I happen to do some of my best work in my favorite lululemon workout pants.

I have also started up another blog on my company's website that you can check out here
I will also have it listed under 'Blogs We Lurk' sidebar, so you will be able to see when I update things. My work blog will mostly be a place for me to post about new projects, clients and also Tips/Tricks of my trade.

Now back to my other full-time job. Out of the corner of my eye I just saw Lily drinking out of a day-old bottle and dancing around without her diaper. My career as a MOTHER is definitely my most challenging role yet..

how exciting!
This post reminds me of "Father of the Bride" when the dad meets Brian McKenzie. HAHAH. And he says that his job title sounds fake.
