who we are

Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success.
— Paul J. Meyer

We don’t fight human nature.

Humans feel. There are no metrics that accurately measure the range and depth of how we feel. In the prevailing world of brand building, inbound marketing, messaging, and content creation, the pendulum swings between the emotional and the analytical. It boils down to a one-or-the-other choice in approach between the heart and the numbers.

We don’t believe in fighting against human composition. We engage it. We don’t merely feel our way through the process without data. We mobilize it.

At Shaston Writes, we aim to build brands that solve problems and connect to humans heart-to-heart.  It’s the way communities, tribes, and nations have been built since the beginnings of human civilization. It’s how our species has thrived.  We figure if it works for our species, it’ll work for your business.

Our Mission

OUR STORY

It’s my job to use my superpowers to help you  discover and ignite yours.

Sharon Shelton Corpening

I started out as a journalist and broadcast news field producer, so I’ve written for television, radio, and print. After I burned out from the newsroom, I went to film school. I wanted to make a difference by producing documentaries (and short fiction) that inspire people.

My life took a different turn in 2012 when I had a long conversation with the woman who became my business coach. I discovered that my decades in broadcast and print gave me tools I didn’t know I had: brand creation.

That’s also when Shaston Writes was born. I started out writing content for entrepreneurs and small businesses.  True to my teaching nature, I was coaching them as well — crafting their brand identities, strengthening their market position,  and sculpting their distinctive brand images so they reflect the heart of their brands’ core values.  Boom! New revelation: I give people the tools they need to succeed on their own terms!  It’s the kind of work that drives me to wake up in the morning. There’s no better cup of Joe!
