I support clarity in who you are and the life you want to create with your business.
My work started in a newsroom where I learned to ask great questions in order to share people's stories.
I fell in love with marketing during my first post-college job (in sports radio, of all things -- not a sports girl!). From there, it was on to marketing for businesses in fiber optics, IT training and book design. In 2010, I launched Blue Elephant Creative. Which in 2018, became StephCottrell.com.
Along the way, I learned photography, graphic design, website coding, commercial production, writing, video editing --- all the components that take your marketing from "good enough" to great.
Developing such a broad skill set has set me apart from others in my industry.
In business, as in life, my goal has always been to create the path I want to take from here to tomorrow. I'd love to help you do the same for your business.
