Girl Gone Global™ Coaching Services
I am a Travel, Food, Wellness, Beauty, Jewish-Interest and General Lifestyle Public Relations expert in the New York-based PR collective, Spiral5. I love to help businesses obtain earned media and develop a solid marketing plan. While living in New York for around 12 years in between living in Switzerland, France, Japan, India and Kyiv I was lucky enough to be mentored by one of the city’s biggest publishing forces as well attend Sarah Lawrence College, NYU, New School and mediabistro for my writing, media and publishing training. I served as the Director of Marketing for celebrity chef Natalia Rose of Detox the World in Manhattan, a publicist for Elke Reve Sudin of New York Drawing Booth and Smashburger via Comm Oddities, Inc. the agency for Boulder, Colorado’s biggest brands. I currently manage a database of over 30,000 global female-identified writers to connect PR, Editors, and Writers.
BUSINESS MEDIA PUBLICITY AND COACHING: The secret to being a successful business is the village it takes to get there. We can help you finally promote your business in the nation’s top outlets with media coaching and distribution. This includes marketing and public relations strategies, crafting press releases with top local, national and international custom tailored media lists, creating or proofing brochures, coaching, writing and editing business plans, writing engaging slides copy, creating or proofing e-mail and website content, events planning, and more.
BOOK DOULA: I can help you birth your beautiful baby book. I have been a teacher for fifteen years, and a professional writer and editor for twelve years. The combination of experiences makes me a passionate and compassionate coach for writing books, book proposals, query letters, articles, and essays. For authors, I created a top-secret Girl Gone Global™ BOOK PROPOSAL template for a book proposal that is professional, thorough informed by agents and editors.
HOW TO BE A TRAVEL WRITER: Perks include free trips, gear, and hotels when traveling the world as a reviewer but not all outlets accept press trips. Publish your stories in the top ten publications like Lonely Planet, Fodors and BBC.
HOW TO PUBLISH YOUR PIECE!: My mentor taught me how to publish my work, not just write it. Now, I teach my students the step-by-step process to get published! This means fiction, non-fiction, essays, articles or books.
STORYTELLING AND COMEDY COACHING: As a professional stand-up and storyteller, I can coach you in writing jokes to kill it in the boardroom, or using storytelling to close sales deals.
Based in Boulder, CO, I can meet in person or via phone or skype globally. Through accountability, support and expertise you can achieve your wildest dreams.

“I’d never pitched as a freelancer before, and was nervous and overwhelmed on how to do so. Alyssa worked with me step-by-step through the process — such a valuable set of lessons!

J., New York, NY; Grok Nation, Atlas Obscura, and more.
