The Bains Storm

Winners Never Go It Alone

The Bains Storm

Winners Never Go It Alone


You're a survivor.

But you know that your good work would be even better if you allied with a partner to talk over your ideas. Because there is no such thing as an entrepreneur, author, speaker or a business owner who goes it alone.

The biggest gift that you can give yourself is to bring on a partner, a published writer-marketer:

  • to be your wing man, creative-consultant and tactician, 
  • bring you rich, new ideas about tapping your strengths,
  • PLUS offer you the writing chops to hit the next level.

As a senior-writer marketing for million dollar companies, a published author and broadcast video script producer, I've got the experience and ideas that can help you grow. 

I've worked in-house and in-agency, earned an MA in Journalism from the University of Hong Kong, and consulted with every kind of client - from manufacturing, transportation, legal, medical and business management to MLM and self-development pros and religious organizations. 

I invite you to speak with me today.

See What My Clients Say...


"I had just started my business from scratch when I found Josh Bains. He saw the potential in my practice and really took me on. He interviewed me, wrote my entire website, arranged a photo shoot to plaster wonderful pictures of me all over the site, and then had it built.
He created my Facebook page and advised I start a Facebook group. Within 24 hours I had 400 followers, new clients and referrals. Now we're writing a book together. There's no stopping him.
-Rachel Welfeld, RachelWelfeld.com


"I'd written the first draft of a book. Not just any book, but a deeply spiritual one that was going to significantly help our organization. I sent Josh that draft, and we ended up working on it together side by side for several months. 

He helped me transform the draft into a truly beautiful guide to spiritual seekers. It was published by Judaica Press, and I personally know that it helped many people. I received many compliments on the quality of the writing."

-Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit, Mashgiach,
Yeshiva Bircas HaTorah

the story about me and fonzie

Sometimes, you find someone who can guide you, often just in the nick of time. 

I was interning at the office of New Play Development at the Mark Taper Forum, the largest theatre on the West Coast. It wasn't surprising to see Al Pacino walking down the hallway tailed by his no-nonsense bodyguard. 

I narrated the first staged reading of Neil Simon's The Dinner Party, a pretty forgettable play. But I will not forget my talk with it's star, actor Henry Winkler - The Fonz.

We were standing outside on a rehearsal break. Jane Curtin and Neil Simon were there. Winkler was smoking a stogie that he stored wrapped in a plastic sandwich bag. I asked him for a piece of life advice, and he said: 

"Josh, if you remember just two things that I say, remember this. Number one, don't trust the fear. And number two--" [he jammed his finger into my gut till it hurt] "--trust that above everything else."


When you're building a business, it's hard to trust your guts. 

To do the unasked for and think your idea, your dream, is actually going to work. That's why writing the story of your business and especially yourself is intrinsically hard.


Why it's important to hire a writer-marketer 

If these ring true for you -- we could be a good fit:

  • You want a fresh perspective. A person who can offer you new ideas and shake up how you market your product with a compelling USP.
  • You want to save time. Get time to devote to what you care about by putting a writer-marketer to work for your big dreams.
  • You want a partner you can trust. You CAN buy happiness when you stop going alone and hire a partner who wants your success. 
  • You want a writer-marketer. Who can write stories and marketing copy that will bring in more money, and create excitement around your brand, with real techniques that work.


Writer-Marketers Counter the Zoom Effect

We suffer from the zoom effect - we're way too close to our own material - and so we can't think of all the pieces and how to present the best idea to create a desired outcome.

This happens to the smartest people. 

When you're smart - you know a lot. You have the most to say. The most riding on the power of your ideas. That's why just about everyone can tell an even better story, or create a better idea, when in consultation with a professional. 

Even if the pro isn't going to write a word.

Speaking to an expert about your idea is liberating. It allows you to see your real offer. As Buckminster Fuller said: "It is one of our most exciting discoveries that local discovery leads to a complex of further discoveries." 

The fastest way to profit is hiring a writer-marketer to help.

Click to hire Josh now.

(Just like they did...)

It was a pleasure to work with Josh. He was instrumental in helping us brand our company. The creative direction he facilitated for our online presence and marketing has helped see actual and impressive financial gain. He met with us and took the time to listen to our needs while providing his own unique spin on the project. He’s easy to work with, creative, and detail oriented. We look forward to working with him again.
