About the Company

Freelance Writing and design

kathleen hesketh

"freelance writer, business content writer, layout specialist."

I am Kathleen Hesketh, founder of Seconds to Go, travel blog for those on the move and creator of content that helps businesses educate their consumers, establish their identity, and of course sell.

With a widely varied background, I've created content on a variety of topics, from the serious to the lighthearted:

  • Insurance
  • Healthcare
  • Life sciences & pharmaceuticals
  • IT services
  • Travel
  • Plastic surgery
  • Pets
  • And more

A favorite project of mine was writing killer blog posts aimed at stirring up the insurance industry. If you know and respect the long-standing history of major insurers as I do, you'll know that isn't an easy thing to accomplish.

Another really great project was focused on the life sciences industry. A leading advisory firm needed to create thought leadership pieces and an article aimed at helping pharmaceutical companies understand and navigate some pressing industry trends. They knew what had to be said, but relied on me to devise the best way to say it.

There is one thing I've learned in creating hundreds of pieces of content. No matter who you are, the business you represent, or the industry you serve, everyone has an original story to tell, and that's what engages and inspires your audience. When content falls short, it's because it fails to communicate the unique message and details that make a story compelling.

So, whether you're looking for someone to create your next stellar blog, white paper, article or even email, I'm here to help. And even if you've already crafted your content and want some editing advice, I can do that too. Writing and designing is what I love and working with the many businesses that I serve is what makes my journey as a writer great.
