September 1, 2011 marks Master Manuscripts' third year as a strategic communications and writing firm.  Whether you're a client, partner, friend, or web site visitor, I owe you a debt of gratitude for contributing to the triad.  You deserve a glimpse of what you've helped create.

In 2008 I was executing my job search from Mom and Dad's basement; determined to never forgive the employer who just cut my job.

The monitor displayed more job descriptions than pixels, torn up "thanks for your interest" letters covered the floor, and "overqualified" had been in the Google search box since the computer was hooked up.

Then, the phone rang and the caller was asking me for resume help.  I cordially replied, "You've got to be kidding."  But I needed the work so that caller became my first client.

Two days later, on Sept. 1, 2008, I launched Master Manuscripts committed to helping clients reach, capture, diversify, and grow the audiences they need by creating communication strategies and written messages that set them apart.

Now it's 2011 and more than 200 clients throughout the nation and economic spectrum advance their interests by using communication strategies and written content I created.  However, my biggest accomplishment is the benefits clients receive and perpetually enjoy after working with me.

Clients from 17 states, the District of Columbia, Central America, and Asia have come to Master Manuscripts for communication and writing services.  It's personally rewarding that most became clients as the result of referrals.

Multitudes provide those referrals, but the resume client I mentioned above came from the staff at  Preference Personnel - before I was even in business.  Evidently, my resume impressed somebody.  This staffing agency has been in business for decades and has been a pillar in my first three years.  When candidates request resume help, they often respond, "Call Mark Puppe at Master Manuscripts.  He can help."  Support like that is hard to come by so every comment Preference and other staffing agencies make on my behalf is appreciated beyond description.

Resumes are what people hear most about Master Manuscripts because other clients need to put their own name on the public statements they make, but I actually polish or prepare far more.  Legislative testimony, letters to the editor, web site content, speeches, PR campaigns, newsletters, and every other kind of message clients order gets  prepared on my computer(s).  Then the client's name goes on it. Clients deserve the credit because those messages are products of their thought.  They're just generous enough to provide me the chance to boost their impact and influence.  That process has worked over and over again in multiple industries for innumberable interests during the past three years and I'm grateful to have had a role.

Although referrals are the primary marketing force behind Master Manuscripts, every inquiry is appreciated and I constantly seek new business.  So, when you want your message to make an impact, you know where to go - as well as where to direct others who have similar needs.

Thank you, EVERYONE. for supporting Master Manuscripts during the past three years and your continued enthusiasm for the company in the future!
