Mission Statement

“The written word is the strongest source of power in the entire universe.” ~Gary Halbert

I founded Rooney Ink because I believe in the transformative power of great communications and great copy, and in its potential to vault organizations to new levels of performance, growth, and success. My mission is to share this power with as many companies as possible, and empower marketers, entrepreneurs, and executives alike to achieve their goals.

Jay’s voice is sensitive, bold, authentic, and it has a sense of humor that we desperately needed at the time.

Working with Jay on numerous projects, I found that he is not only very adept at speaking to a target audience, but he also has a strategic mind for content, which made him an invaluable resource for our editorial team.
