Without the brilliant and creative help of Lisa Roth and Alanna Stang at Well Said, I would not have achieved my lifelong dream of writing a book. They helped me develop the muscle to engage with my audience on LinkedIn, while simultaneously taking my rough content and structuring my book to make it broadly appealing. They have a way of listening to, repositioning, and expanding ideas that is synergistic, relevant and smart. Plus, they are super fun to work with!
Working with these two women is a true collaboration. When we became unwieldy, they brought order. When we lost focus, they recentered. When we hit an impasse, they pivoted. They’ve made our organization better, and remain an essential part of our team.

They elevated our big event by focusing our core messages and drafting resonant language. It was a pleasure working with them, building trust, and gaining invaluable insights.
Seeing their edits of my words is like seeing a pile of rusty metal turn into gold.
Working with Lisa & Alanna has been invaluable in so many ways — including some that were completely unpredictable.  This collaborative process exposed areas that we, as a new company, needed to get clearer on in developing our mission and core values.
Lisa and Alanna exposed so many loose threads that we didn’t even know about — working them and going through their process has been a real gift and blessing.
We came to Well Said with ideas, lots of them, in lots of places, scattered. Lisa and Alanna masterfully sorted and sifted them into cogent, compelling words that captured the mission and vision of our new nonprofit organization.
