I will share ways to tell your story in a way that will connect, engage and attract new customers to your business.

Nakita is the owner of Word Stylist, a content marketing and writing coaching business that serves the small business community. With the growing need to create meaningful content in a digital world, the emergence of content marketing has afforded me to share my gifts with the small business community. I like to think of myself as a perfect blend of a journalist and a creative writer, building a compelling story while telling the facts.
