Personal Branding Strategist
Professional Writer

Marietta Gentles Crawford has been featured on websites like Business Insider, Forbes, Money, The Muse, Inc., Fast Company, Thrive Global, and HuffPo.

She's also the author of From Nine to Thrive: A Guide to Building Your Personal Brand and Elevating Your Career—a personal branding book that’s been a go-to career guide for both intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs.

Before taking the big leap to start her own business, MGC Ink, she worked within Fortune 500 companies for 15+ years as a corporate trainer and writer. She credits her small but powerful LinkedIn network for helping her elevate her online brand.
