How It Started

It started with a bright idea – and a glass of wine. Lindsay Young, founder of 3 Aspens Media, was mulling over a major opportunity: Combine her extensive background in writing and publishing, experience as editor of Modern Distribution Management (mdm.com) and MBA to start a content firm serving the distribution industry.

She went for it – and hasn’t looked back.

How It's Going

Today, the 3 Aspens Media team has grown to more than a dozen with a blend of backgrounds, professional expertise and life experiences. Our team works remotely from across the country. And we share one thing in common — a passion for helping our clients achieve their goals
