About Tiffany

Tiffany Markman is not a serial entrepreneur. She’s also not an influencer, a brand ambassador, or anyone famous. She is, however, a grammar nerd. A writer. A trainer. A speaker. And a small business owner who enjoys black coffee and heavy irony as much as she despises misplaced apostrophes and the phrase ‘I’ll revert back.’ She’s helped 300+ brands, including many household names and blue-chip multinationals, to rock their messaging.
