Copy Editor, Copywriter, Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer

Former magazine content director, podcast host and journalist

Shelby is a digital content strategist with experience in online content development, blog, video and social media, and developing platform-specific strategies for delivering content.

I'm former director of digital content and social media for SUCCESS magazine, until last month when it unexpectedly laid off its entire editorial staff and announced SUCCESS magazine was shutting down. But it's just as well.

Now I've started a new chapter freelance writing and editing, consulting and helping others tell their story. I write about personal and professional development, with special interest in productivity, life hacks, leadership, personal branding and blogging.
