Who We Are: Nancy Juetten

From Desperate Housewife to PR Diva

Nancy's public relations consulting, publicity coaching, and information products business started in February of 2001 with a desire to earn enough money to buy better groceries.

She enjoys working with clients doing business in the "comfort and joy" niche whose products, services, or ideas one day have the magic to invite Oprah Winfrey's attention. Seattle Chocolate Company, Affirmagy, Olympic Hot Tub Company, and La Panzanella are examples.
