The Full Story...
It's no surprise that Susan Regier is an entrepreneur. After all, she's come from a long line of independent business owners. Growing up on a farm in rural Ontario, with three older brothers, it became clear from the start that she would have to find her own voice. And it's been a natural transition into writing.
By 1997, Susan already had a trail of published articles in magazines across North America and she decided it was finally time to break free from the daily grind of an unfulfilling job and live her life her way…and Vantage One Writing was born.
As a professional copywriter and marketing strategist, Susan has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs around the world to market their businesses successfully while creating brand messages that drive sales. She works with entrepreneurs to find their core essence – that unique piece that sets them apart from others in their industry – and then creates a compelling marketing message for various mediums, including Web sites, media releases, articles, and professional profiles/bios.
Susan built her business with contacts in London, Ontario and began networking extensively to increase that circle, soon working with clients around the world. In addition to working with entrepreneurs and small business owners, she has written content for national ad agency campaigns with familiar brands such as Scotch® Brand Specialty Tapes, Post-it® Notes, Stihl®, Harley-Davidson, ED Smith, Vanier Flooring, Energizer Batteries, and Weis...and even helped to introduce the bagel to Japan for Maple Leaf Foods.
Within a year of her business start-up, and after being asked continually where and how she networked, Susan started Networking Today, a small eight-page newsletter that was circulated to 10,000 businesses to showcase local networking groups, special events, and offer resourceful articles to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
By 1999, Networking Today was online exclusively promoting local networking groups and providing valuable resources to entrepreneurs and sales professionals with a library of 800+ articles written by industry experts.
Susan is committed to connecting people to one another and to valuable business resources. Dubbed the "Queen of Networking" and "Media Networking Expert" she shares her PR expertise with entrepreneurs around the world. Plus, she shares her knowledge and talent with hundreds of entrepreneurs and corporate professionals through her networking and marketing workshops and presentations...but Susan knew she wanted to reach a greater audience.
In 2009, Susan launched SusanRegier.com to offer home study informational products based on her successful hands-on workshops. These products are invaluable for entrepreneurs starting their own business or for those looking to upgrade their expertise. They are essential for freelance writers, virtual assistants, coaches and marketers who are in the business to help others achieve exponential results.
Susan shares marketing insights and strategies on her weekly online tv show, Your Marketing Makeover, which can be viewed at http://thewinonline.com/etv-business-channel-susan-regier-your-marketing-makeover/.
Over the years, Susan has worked with various coaches and mentors to help her focus and stay on top of the marketing trends to expand her business. And now, she coaches other serious and motivated entrepreneurs to create a blueprint for success through her marketing and mindset seminars, mastermind groups, and individual coaching sessions.
