what I do
I’m here to help you live life at a gentler pace, prioritise what you value, enabling you to live a life of fulfilment and purpose.
who I help
I provide advice and guidance for people like you, who feel a relentless pull to be true to yourself, to embrace a gentler pace of life while valuing what gives you fulfilment and purpose.
I work with sole traders and small businesses – part cheerleader, part mentor, I give practical support to help short circuit the learning curve that goes with setting up online.
I act as a sounding board exploring ideas and strategies with you, assisting you in defining your plan, and suggesting the appropriate technologies and approaches to use.
In previous incarnations, I’ve been a mentor and coach, a business advisor, a digital expert, and a web designer. I’ve led large teams by focusing on individuals and identifying their strengths. I can do the same for you.
how I advise
These are possible ways that I can help you.
building your online presence – I’ve been building websites for 25 years, most recently in WordPress. I can give you step by step guidance on creating a website from scratch including buying a domain name, setting up branded email, purchasing hosting, choosing a WordPress theme, developing your site.
growing your online presence – once you’ve developed your own website, the next step is to make it work for you. I can help you plan and define your strategy, giving you all the tools and techniques you need to be seen online.
defining your business – whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been trading for a while, I can advise on how you can implement your ideas. I see potential and opportunities, and can create a roadmap for you to help you grow your business.
