Twenty-something branches out on her own with The Lioness GroupSPRINGFIELD, MASS. June 17, 2009 – With less employment options to turn to, many college graduates and early to mid-level professionals are investing in their greatest asset – themselves.“I like to think that I am a reflection of young, Black twenty-somethings looking to go into business for themselves. I want The Lioness Group to be a mirror image of our local business community and representing a diverse clientele will allow me to do that,” Natasha Clark, recent founder of The Lioness Group said.“I've always been asked if I do freelance work on the side. I never had the courage to actually step out and establish myself as a separate entity. But like so many other twenty-somethings facing this economic crisis, I realized that my future and talents are best left to be managed by me. The Lioness Group will allow me to do that on my own terms,” Clark said.The Lioness Group aims to serve entrepreneurs and small business owners looking to get their passion out to the masses, but it has an immediate goal of serving the minority business population. The last thing a small business owner wants to do is a face phenomenal fee after they've just invested so much into getting their dream up and running. The Lioness Group offers affordable, quality writing, editing and media services to entrepreneurs, artists, authors and small business owners including Web site content, marketing strategies, public relations and more.As a journalist, Clark has spent the last several years working with members of the local business community and getting an understanding of what they need. She has the dual advantage of standing in both the shoes of the entrepreneur and those of the media. She said it is terrifying being on the opposite end.“I think as a reporter, we tend to get in and out and we’re on to the next thing. As an entrepreneur the stress, the workload, it’s all waiting for you in the morning,” Clark explained. “I never considered starting my own company. I love to write and I’ve always been pleased to do it for someone else. But with layoffs, cuts and rising costs, I had to reevaluate my career path.”About The Lioness GroupThe Lioness Group was founded in 2009 after local business owners expressed a need for quality, low-cost writing and media services.
