It's that time of year again, when students are heading back to school. One student, however, is taking on a whole lot more than just another school year.

Connie Chen is a Chinese high school student living in China but attending Laurel Springs ( - a distance learning school based in Ojai, CA. Like many young people, she is ambitious, hoping to one day attend Harvard ( Unlike most high school students, though, Chen isn't just taking on another year of school work. She's starting a business too.

Connie Writes ( is a newly formed partnership between Chen and writing consultant, Steve McCardell ( Together, they will offer business writing and marketing consultations for small businesses, and both services come with a twist: they're free.

Their goal as a team isn't to make money, but to help Chen strengthen her writing abilities. As a result, they're able to offer these free business services with professional results.

"I want to graduate high school with some real life skills, even before heading into college," says Chen. "Usually when businesses look to students for help, they can save money but at the expense of quality. We want to provide professional results, helping businesses generate new leads and customers without spending a dime of their budget."

But writing isn't all they'll help with. As McCardell has counseled both small businesses and CEOs on marketing issues, he will share that experience as well. The pair, then, will analyze client websites and provide a free, custom marketing report upon request.

"We feel that if Connie understands a client's overall marketing needs, she'll understand their writing needs as well," says McCardell. "This will help prepare her for whatever business field she eventually enters. And of course a free marketing report makes this an even better deal for her clients."

The only thing businesses give in exchange for the service is enough time for Chen to learn while writing. Their contribution is to her education.
