“The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way.”

“It is my pleasure to provide a recommendation for Jonathan S. Ross based on my experience working with him off and on for the past three years.

The first thing that people need to understand is how talented a writer (I refer to him as my “word-slinger”) Jonathan really is. Not only is he highly creative, but he has a wonderful understanding of business and knows how to lend a personal touch to everything that he does. I have found Jonathan to be a forward-thinker who is quick to understand the needs of not only a company, but the individual as well. He has proven to me that he understands the world of entertainment and knows when to be discreet and diplomatic, yet he can be a bulldog when it comes to protecting his clients’ interests.

Above all else, he is honest and a man of integrity and character. I have recommended Jonathan’s services to my own clients and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else. “

Our services fall under the following core disciplines:

Interactive Project Management
Leadership and organization are vital to getting things done. Yet unfortunately, many projects fail or are unnecessarily delayed due to the lack of these qualities. That's where we come in. With our experience in both traditional and digital media, we understand how to manage, budget and schedule resources. We also understand the importance of clear and direct communication and the necessity of keeping both clients as well as employees happy.

Need assistance creating or managing your Web site or other digital media such as DVD’s or CD’s? Let us lend our expertise. We provide guidance on technology issues, information architecture and user interface design. We can work with your internal IT staff or recommend outside developers as necessary.

Copywriting & Marketing Strategy
We work in print as well as digital media, performing copy writing, branding and general strategy. Additionally, we can assist with product introduction, competitive analysis, and demand forecasting. Whether you have existing collateral that simply needs refinement or are looking for a brand new direction articulated in a Strategic Marketing Plan, we'll make your business or project stand out from the competition.

Strategic Planning & Business Development
Ultimately, success in business comes down to diligent research to identify opportunity, followed by skillful negotiation and implementation to convert that opportunity into reality. In an age in which various media channels are all increasingly influencing each other, it's important to not lose sight of both the challenges and possibilities presented by this trend. We look for opportunities, and then we find ways to create win/win scenarios for all involved.

Need assistance articulating your vision in a comprehensive Business Plan, Strategic Brief, Executive Overview, or other investor relations collateral? Please contact us for details. We can also provide capital fund-raising assistance through select NASD licensed investment banking resources such as Mosaic Capital, LLC and through Tomahawk Partners, LLC, a strategic consultancy and business advisory firm with access to private equity capital sources.

Corporate Communications & Investor Relations
Press releases, newsletters, blogs, PowerPoint Presentations or everyday business correspondence. Regardless of the medium, these all need to get your message across clearly, consistently and effectively. We will ensure that this happens.
