David Hamilton worked for 3 different "creative" agencies before calling it quits.

Growing tired of the inefficient value, bloated billable hour, and constant change-orders, he started 708 Consulting. He's written for Fortune 500 brands, CEOs, CMOs, and Founders. 

His passion is to write and create for people who don't know just how brilliant they truly are. 

 

Moose has never known the meaning of personal space. 

She roams around our Founder's feet, begs for food, and lets him know when it's time to close email. She isn't afraid to bark—but prefers you just listen to her the first time. She has a keen eye for adverbs, misplaced em-dashes, and squirrels that can never be caught. Moose needs 16 hours of sleep a day so...there's that. 
 

Claire Blystra has always been enthralled by story.  

Over the last several years she’s had the opportunity to tell many stories – some of her own, and a few for those without a voice. She’s written to tell the stories of the twenty-something, the refugee, and the first-time pet owner. These days she writes on the weekends in between walking her Labrador and checking out the newest restaurant in Grand Rapids.

You deserve a partner.

His ability to take my muddled musings and translate into coherent thoughts has been outstanding.
