A business writer and freelance journalist, Tasha Bovain’s approach to communications not only goes against the grain, it carves out a space inside it. She merges her creative storytelling and reporting experience with marketing techniques to promote social change. Drawing upon her diverse experiences in advertising sales, customer service and fundraising, she specializes in helping small businesses and nonprofit organizations get people excited about their brand or cause. Forever a curious soul, she has written articles and entertainment reviews for various online and print publications, including Newsday, the East Meadow Herald and WomenonBusiness.com.
Born into a family of entrepreneurs, Tasha’s stint in the business world began long before she could even talk. However, her official introduction to entrepreneurship came in 2007 when she launched SingleandFab.com, one of the first online lifestyle publications targeting single women. She came up with the idea after advising a colleague on her relationship troubles – for the tenth time. Fed up with the “How to Make a Man Fall in Love with You” and “How to Please a Man in Bed” articles, she saw an opportunity to fill a need in the ever-growing market of single women. Blending her two passions – business and writing – Tasha later evolved her role as an online publisher to encompass concept development and copywriting for women entrepreneurs.
Tasha is committed to women’s economic and financial empowerment, and has presented various entrepreneurship workshops across Long Island, NY to teenage mothers at MOMMA’s House. She thrives on empowering others and being a catalyst for social change, and has worked and volunteered for a host of nonprofit organizations, including: The Long Island Fund for Women & Girls, Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Planned Parenthood of Nassau County, the Financial Clinic and South Nassau Communities Hospital. When she’s not sticking her nose in everyone’s business in search of her next story, she enjoys sipping soy chai lattes, perusing the aisles of Barnes & Noble, and lifting her body weight in dumbbells.
