I’m a best selling author, senior business consultant and multimedia content creator. I’ve often also been the lead company spokesperson with the media and financial community in Canada and the U.S.
My boutique marketing agency, JuliaHidyMmarketing.com specializes in developing and launching fully-integrated North American-wide marketing programs and business initiatives for my clients and my clients’ clients.
I’ve also managed the people and resources for U.S. $3.5 billion in projects for:
o two of the larger law suits filed in North America;
o an 880-seat software implementation that had a zero room for timing errors and came in on time and on budget;
o a 225-person design build project for Canada’s largest document processor that was completed months ahead of schedule without any compromise in quality while coming in well under budget and with all details detail executed as required;
o a tour that allowed one firm to raise U.S. $225 million of capital in two weeks, among others.
What most people never found out during that time was that I’d been diagnosed with severe chronic fatigue syndrome. I never missed a single day of work due to the CFS – even when I was sleeping 12 hours for the better part of a year.
The $3.5 billion in projects I’d worked on were equally split between before I came down with the CFS and after my diagnosis and healing period.
How did I recover even though three M.D.’s told me I wouldn’t ever get my energy levels back? I found holistic, natural practitioners whose treatments allowed me to rebuild my immune system. I changed what I ate. I also rewired how I used my brain and though processes so that I would think, react and do things completely differently than I had before.
The essentials that I learned as I healed became my first bestselling book, Energy for Your Life: Seven Energy Giving Habits. My two other books in my Energy for Your Life series, Be Positive and Think Positive, have also become amazon.com bestsellers in the U.S. and in the U.K.
Recently, I was featured in the third largest U.S. print magazine, First for Women, for a diet book I’d written, Weight Loss for Your Life: The Amazing Girlfriends’ Diet. The companion book, 101 Foods from A to Z Most Likely to Cause Cravings, has also been well received in the U.S.
For my clients, I take a fully-integrated approach to their business. My clients may hire me as their marketer and content creator, but I do a full business and ROI analysis based on what they have been doing. Usually, I find that the think they have a marketing problem when in fact they really have a sales and/or customer service-related issues that need to be addressed first.
That’s when I create a plan that they can roll out internally to ensure every team member can be as productive as possible. Retraining is often required and set up; policies are often revised and workflows are streamlined so that each person can be as productive and contribute their greatest skills to the company overall.
At that point, I will roll out a their U.S. or Canadian national campaign. Usually, by then, I’ve helped the company rebrand themselves – online and in print. I’ll also have given the sales and customer support teams new materials and a revived mandate of what will work best for all concerned. And then it makes what I do to market and position the company to the media and new clients an easy sell.
I go well beyond what the client thinks they need to providing them with what their customers really want from them. I also help turn them into being a best of breed provider – even if they’re a small company and have to compete with well-funded, publicly-traded giants. I combine my years as a highly successful manager, project manager, and client relationship specialist so the company knows they have the best to offer, and it isn’t long before millions in sales pour in.
I’ve taken my business experiences and applied them to elite technology firms, global supply chain ERP and, retail ERP developers, and the world’s top internet marketers, among others. For specifics visit, JuliaHidyMarketing.com.
These days, I’ve written and am editing my latest book, The Art of Doing Enough. This combines the life lessons I experienced with writing Energy for Your Life and what I’d learned while managing some of the larger corporate projects in this country. I help tired, overworked and frustrated people optimize and use their energy better while getting more done. I help them move from perfection to doing their best so they can do what they need to do – not more; not less.
I’m a philosopher, business sage and life muse. I believe that we have many gifts that we can nurture and share, and that the greatest gift we have is to be happy and to share that happiness with others.
Thanks for stopping by.
