Note from Gayle –
I love yoga, gardening, kayaking, hiking, art, wine tasting and traveling, but most importantly, I love people!

It’s not uncommon for me to strike up a conversation with the person next to me in line at the grocery store or to get people smiling while waiting in those long lines at the post office. It’s amazing what you can learn when you simply engage with someone and start listening. Incredibly, I have found that these impromptu conversations and meetings often lead to new customers, new connections and new business.

Whether in person or online, with a newspaper story or a YouTube video, through an email newsletter or even with a good old-fashioned hand-written note … for me, there is nothing more satisfying than connecting with people, engaging in conversation and sharing inspiration. I’d love the opportunity to speak with you about your business, event or community and find out how I can help you share your story!

I look forward to meeting you!
