Shennandoah Diaz – Branding & Communications Officer – Brass Knuckles Media

I’m a fighter, a thinker and a doer. A person of big words and actions. I dropped all pretenses and double talk long ago. Life is too short to lie, cheat, regret, pine, or suffer. So instead I build, I create, I connect, I strive and push and pull and mold beauty from the bits and pieces I find. Its not as hard as you may think.

I’ve been on the bottom. As a single mother on welfare I pulled my daughter and I out of poverty, got a B.A. in Economics Summa Cum Laude from St. Edward’s University, and helped build a million dollar business. Now I’m on top, totally in control because I realized I am the master of my destiny. I can do whatever I want from starting my own PR & Marketing firm, Brass Knuckles Media, to mentoring other people toward a life of freedom characterized by an entrepreneurial spirit, a desire for a life of meaning, and ideas to help other people.

I love meeting new people, sharing ideas, and building communities. Contact me by email at sdiaz@shennandoahdiaz.com (no spam please), on TwitterLinkedIn, or Facebook. Lets start a conversation, build a business, solve a problem, or just talk about geeky stuff (I love comic books, am a big sic-fi/fantasy geek, and am a a bit of a grandmother/Martha about the home).
