Hi, I'm Clay.
I help entrepreneurial people communicate successfully.
Big News! You don’t have to let communication challenges hold you back from connecting with others and sharing your work with the world. Believe it or not, you have what it takes to communicate successfully.
If you are trying to promote your awesome products and services but intimidated by the communication it takes to connect with your audience, you are not alone.
How to Be Your Own Communications Department
Many entrepreneurial folks like us are flying solo and have limited resources. Whether we’re all alone or working with a tiny team, we are Chief Communication Officers of our own businesses. You know who I’m talking about:
- Online entrepreneurs who need to produce and distribute mucho content
- App developers in need of downloads, reviews, and funding.
- Authors, musicians, and other creatives trying to promote their books, music, and art.
- Nonprofit leaders trying to give back/share hope…etc.
You are the kind of people in my tribe.
The Challenge for Entrepreneurial People
Perhaps you’re on your own, unsure of your ability to successfully communicate your message. Or maybe you’re a savvy communicator working to improve. Either way, you don’t have access to a communications or marketing department. You can’t dip into a big, corporate budget to splurge on highly paid consultants.
The good news is you don’t have to. You already have everything you need to get your message out there effectively.
I’ve always called myself a freelancer because that’s the right lingo for a writer/speaker, but in reality, I’m an entrepreneur. As a sole proprietor, or solopreneur, Clay Morgan is all at once a person, company, and product.
I’m the boss of this sometimes unreliable employee. I’m making the coffee while running the C-Suite of my one-man organization. And if you’re an entrepreneurial person, so are you. As masters and servants of our own domains, we’re not alone.
Whether we’re selling physical products, designing apps, writing books, monetizing our craftiness, or offering valuable services, we share two important things in common.
- A desire for our message to be heard and accepted.
- A struggle to successfully communicate our message.
Can You Succeed Without Communication Skills?
No surprise I recently stumbled across multiple internet threads with nervous visitors asking if it’s possible to succeed as an entrepreneurial person without communication skills. If only we could. But we must be our own communications departments.
Communication skills are essential, especially for folks like us who need to interact with customers, fans, investors, partners, media members, and more. We must communicate successfully to accomplish our goals.
There’s a bond among us entrepreneurial types because we all face these challenges. So why not face them together?

Public Presentations Gone Wrong I recently saw a presentation that was not great. The gentleman addressing our group was confident, spoke slowly, and knew his stuff. By all appearances he was an experienced speaker who had given public presentations multiple times....
