One of my favorite Grammar Chic clients is Kuester Companies—and in particular, their Association Management group. I say this with sincerity, and perhaps just a hint of wonder; to be sure, this isn’t the first thing you’d think of when you think about a literary consultancy and professional writing and editing service like Grammar Chic, Inc. We work with authors, with people who write for a living. What could we possibly have to do with an HOA company like Kuester?
The thing of it is, though, our work isn’t just about words. It’s about ideas, and it’s about facilitating effective communication. Kuester is a company that places a high premium on both of these things; they’re nothing if not loaded with good ideas about property management—ideas meant to provide the best service possible to their many clients—and so it’s pretty easy for us at Grammar Chic, Inc. to help put those ideas into words.
Kuester is at once a big, ambitious, and expanding company, but also one with tight-knit values and a familial sensibility; indeed, it is a family business, and though it is constantly growing, it is still run as such. Kuester provides management services to residential areas—including condominiums, apartment complexes, and neighborhoods—throughout the Carolinas, yet they pride themselves in the value they place on their employees, and on the team spirit they embody. They work with some of the industry’s top talent and collaborate with some of the finest vendors in the area, yet they are adamant about the fact that it’s the customer who comes first, and that, at the end of the day, their job is really just to keep their many communities happy.
Kuester Association Management’s function is to provide a stable, guiding presence for local association managers and also to ensure that the needs of the different community members are being met; as you can imagine, their work lives or dies on their ability to communicate effectively. On that front, Grammar Chic, Inc. is all too happy to help—whether it’s with web content, articles, or blog entries.
As editors, we get to work with a variety of authors that are looking to polish their work and publish their books. Recently, Grammar Chic, Inc. had the pleasure of working with Dr. Yvonne Corppetts, a speaker, author, and educator that specializes in motivating others to fulfill their potential. Her goal? To help people live life as best as they can.
Dr. Yvonne Corppetts’ new book, Take Charge for Major Success: A Guide to Living Your Best Life, is a tool that she has added to her motivational arsenal. Published by Manassas, Virginia-based EDGE Publishing Company, Dr. Corppetts has developed the content of the book through truths she has learned from both her education and her personal experience. Dr. Corppetts guides readers through the task of understanding who they really are, pinpointing what they want in life, achieving major success, overcoming challenges, and freeing themselves of people and situations that present obstacles to their well-being.
Based in Columbia, South Carolina, Dr. Corppetts has grown her brand quickly. Between speaking at events, working on her book, consulting with a variety of organizations, and making appearances, she has made the time to develop a new blog, which is scheduled to be launched next month.
To learn more about Dr. Yvonne Corppetts and the positive impact she has had on her community, and the many people who have attended her events and read her book, visit her website.
Al Baird grew up fishing the North Carolina coast and to this day remains loyal to its many piers. When his family first started their annual vacations to the coast, Jennette’s Pier was their location of choice. Since then, Al has been casting his line over piers regularly and has made it his mission to ensure that other kids have the opportunity to experience the same tranquil yet exciting interaction with both nature and other fishing enthusiasts. As the founder of the North Carolina Fishing Pier Society, Al has done massive amounts of research in his efforts to preserve the piers along the North Carolina coast and to get people excited about pier fishing. His new book, North Carolina’s Ocean Fishing Piers: From Kitty Hawk to Sunset Beach, chronicles the dangers the piers have faced over the years and shares the triumphs of many fisherman, young and old, who have held their own against the waters of the Atlantic and taken home their prize.
Published by The History Press, North Carolina’s Ocean Fishing Piers will be released to the public in March of 2011. The History Press is a publishing house located in Charleston, South Carolina, and we here at Grammar Chic, Inc. are delighted that such a great press recognized Al’s wonderful work.
Grammar Chic, Inc. is excited about the upcoming release of North Carolina’s Ocean Fishing Piers and is so proud of Al Baird for the success he has achieved. Congratulations, Al!
We recently had the honor of working with Lea Shulman, of Norwalk, Connecticut-based Lea Shulman Interiors. Lea is a highend, luxury interior designer specializing in new construction and kitchen remodels. Her portfolio is truly one-of-a-kind, but she was looking for help with conveying who she is and what she does for her clients on her website. We were able to work with her to develop unique web content that truly expressed her background, expertise and what her company hopes to accomplish when working with clients who have an interior design vision, but who need a helping hand in making that vision a reality. Now that her website is “remodeled,” Lea can get on to the important work of making the homes of her clients’ true works of art. Check her out online at: http://www.leashulmaninteriors.com.
