I'm Nailah Blades. A Business & Marketing Strategist and CEO of Wylie & Co., a social marketing agency that specializes in business, content and social strategy for lifestyle brands. I help ​clients ​clarify their brands online and ​build thriving, inclusive communities ​of fans, prospects and influencers. At its core, marketing is about building community and starting conversations. I partner with brands to craft unique experiences for their prospects and customers by helping them connect with their current target market, as well as finding new and alternative markets online. Marketing doesn't exist in a vacuum. I connect the dots.  

I began my career in the Consumer Packaged Goods industry. My six years working in Sales and Trade Marketing gave me invaluable experience in account management, strategic planning and forecast planning. I earned my master’s in Communication and Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University and hold a bachelor’s in Communication from the University of Southern California (Fight On!)
