I’m a Storyteller…
Scrabble is a blood sport in my family. I love the mastery of a well-crafted sentence, the frisson of the perfectly-chosen word, the suspense of a tale well-told. In short, I love the art and craft of the storyteller.
…and a Business Woman
It’s taken me some time to realize not everyone shares my passion–or has the time and energy to invest in writing. I launched Deans & Company to help my clients tell their stories.
The secret sauce: I worked hard to build productive teams. Hearing that team members met without needing me there to get results was music to my ears.
Mary Beth or MB?
Sit down for this one. I’m “MB-dextrous”: I use both names. Why? Because I went to a convent school where all the girls were named Mary Something. If you said “Mary,” thirty little faces would turn like sunflowers in your direction. I got tired of being part of the herd.
