About Whitney Hahn

It’s hard to read the label when you are inside the bottle.

As a fellow business leader and marketing professional for almost 20 years, I know what it is like to have an ambitious business goal – yet not be able to see it through.

Impatience creeps in, sometimes flanked by doubt and frustration.  It sucks. I’ve been there.

That’s why I know how valuable the right person on the outside can be.

With my experience, systems, and extra firepower, you’ll finally get a clear strategy, emerge from task fog, and be on your way to writing the business story you deserve.
