My motto is “feel the fear & do it anyway”.
Why? Because my life has been a series of bold strategic moves that have resulted in either great reward or great learning's. I launched my blog in fall 2013 with a simple goal of sharing my expertise with others to help them remain two moves ahead of the competition. I started off writing about career development and personal branding. I was also coaching others on career transition and interview prep. My specialty? Leveraging LinkedIn to build your brand, grow your network and make a name for yourself.
Along the way, I began to work with entrepreneurs who wanted me to brand their LinkedIn profiles to aid them in getting clients. I LOVED working with this group. As I gaining clients through referrals, their asks became bigger. I went from writing LinkedIn profiles to writing biographies, website content and creating social media strategy for authors, coaches, event planners and more.
That experience is what led my business to blossom into what it is now. Today, I help amazing bombshell women like you package their expertise, brand their brilliance and monetize their online presence.
