The Full Story...
Susan Regier is an in-demand copywriter, marketing strategist, and business breakthrough specialist to ambitious entrepreneurs who want to have a profitable business they are passionate about. She has the uncanny ability to find the hidden gems in a business that can ignite sales and profits for her clients.
It's no surprise that Susan is an entrepreneur. After all, she came from a long line of independent business owners – and her father has been her greatest influencer. An entrepreneur, before she knew what the word meant, she learned his values – his actions spoke louder than words, which made his life successful on so many levels.
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 time to break free from the daily grind of an unfulfilling job and live her life her way…and Vantage One Writing was born.
Susan has helped thousands of entrepreneurs and companies globally to market their businesses successfully while creating brand messages that drive sales. She finds their core essence – that unique piece that sets them apart from others in their industry – and then creates compelling content for various mediums, including Web sites, press releases, articles, and professional profiles/bios.
In addition to working with entrepreneurs and small business owners, she has written for national ad agency campaigns for familiar brands such as Scotch® Brand Specialty Tapes, Post-it® Notes, Stihl®, Harley-Davidson, ED Smith, Tenderflake, Vanier Flooring, Energizer Batteries, and Weis...and even helped to introduce the bagel to Japan for Maple Leaf Foods.
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. In 2009, she launched SusanRegier.com, where she offers private coaching programs and online courses.
As a former creative writing instructor at her local college, Susan offers virtual creative writing programs and writing retreats for women for those who desire to develop their writing talents, whether that's short stories or novels, fiction or non-fiction, or writing for children.
