Welcome to Stephens Social!
Although this site is brand new, the work behind it has been going for nine years.
I’ve worked in freelance and corporate online marketing and public relations since the time that MySpace was still a thing. A lot has changed since I began my career… 72% of American adults are now on social media, Facebook celebrated one billion people accessing the site in a single day (that’s 1 in 7 people on Earth!) and I have a beautiful, active little family.
While I love my work, I’ve also grown to love the freedom of a flexible schedule and the excitement of working with people who inspire me and on projects I am passionate about. There’s something about watching my daughter grow that has wanted me to live with more purpose.
But the regular paychecks! The unknown! While I have been working on several great projects on the side of my full-time job, the truth became evident: I was keeping my day job out of fear and little else.
Finally, on the brink of a new year, I made a big step that reflects my hopes and passions… and not my fears. I’m excited to grow Stephens Social as the friendly resource for small and medium-size businesses ready to change the way they communicate with their audience and how they drive sales.
