If it’s one thing I know about you, it’s that you believe in your business.
Like stop. at. nothing. believe in your business.
It’s coursing through you...I see it and feel it (and know it)!
And I’m right there with you, I know that feeling so well. But I also know what it’s like to spin your wheels and waste a shit ton of time on unnecessary tactics and busy work that is NOT BRINGING IN CLIENTS.
Right now you’re stuck and frustrated:
You’re distracted by what others are doing in their business.
You’re worried there isn’t enough room for you online.
You’re spending way too much time on social media, you can almost feel the tumbleweeds rolling by.
You’ve tried your hand at blogging, you’ve started an email list but you just haven’t seen the results you’d hoped for.
You’ve contemplated screaming into a pillow.
You’ve been throwing things at the wall and you’re not sure what sticks, what works, and what’s a complete waste of time.
Yet you’re like a moth to a flame. You just won’t quit until you meet your goals. I get you. I know you. I’ve been you.
It doesn’t have to be this hard
I know because I’ve been there.
I can tell you first hand that there is a way out of feeling so mired in overwhelm. I can also tell you getting the results you want are within your reach. And I’m happy to tell you that you can grow your business online. Yes, you.
Growing an online business doesn’t have to leave you feeling exhausted with no results to show for it.
I know because I have been right where you are. Exactly where you are.
So who am I?
I’m a small business owner just like you. But most likely just a few steps ahead of you. I started my business because I wanted to work for myself, and I believed I had what it took.
However, little did I know just how much there is to do. And hoooo-y did I learn!
Over the past 6 years I’ve grown my business online through many mistakes, failures, and guesses. And nope, I’m not afraid to share that. (As we get to know each other, you’ll see I’ll happy be honest with you about the good, the bad, and the boring.)
I’ve been stuck in the weeds and been determined to make this shit easier -- because just like you -- I knew there was another side to all of this.
I’ve learned a lot and realized many things about what running a business is all about. And I want that for you, except without the YEARS of figuring it out on your own like I did.
There’s basic, foundational steps every business must take to be a success online. It’s not about how much you post on Instagram or 6 or 7 figure launches (alone).
It’s about a sustainable strategy, refining your voice so it communicates effortlessly to your online audience, and a lot of determination. (Spoiler: you’ve already got that last part!)
I’ve made all the mistakes and all the goof ups (and I’ll probably make more - because that’s just BUSINESS.), each has only educated me and made me a stronger business owner.
Everything I’ve learned I want to share with you.
Get to know me
The Reader’s Digest version of my career
I grew up in inner city Boston with a single mother who worked her ass off and taught my siblings and myself the value of networking, how to be self-reliant, and how to always make sure we have a voice in this world. These values have defined me as a person and are the fundamental beliefs in my business.
When I was 22 I flew to London on a one way ticket (pretty sure you can’t do that anymore!), intending to intern at Amnesty International for 3 months, instead I decided to stay and live there illegally for almost 2 years.
I worked in the high-end retail world for a long time before I shifted my career to marketing and online business growth. In 2001 Kate Spade moved me to San Francisco to run their flagship store.
In 2005 I found blogs and I was hooked! I started one of the first indy art blogs online, and when all was said and done, that little blog garnered over 3 million views and 1.7 million visitors.
I’ve worked as a social media strategist and community manager for some websites you might be familiar with: Yahoo, Wired Magazine, and Wikia (Wikipedia’s community sister site).
In 2012 I started my own business to help small businesses grow their business online, my aim is to work with creative women like you making inroads and blazing trails.
