I get asked this question a lot – ‘What made you start your own company?’ The short answer is I love connecting with people and I want to be able to work from anywhere. If you are interested, the longer version is in my blog.
Do I love everything about social media…big NO. But I do see value in the connectivity, the relationships and being able to communicate with anyone in the world. It’s not always pretty, sometimes it's downright NASTY and HATEFUL. But I’d like to think I’ve created a resource to help small business owners connect with their community, build customer loyalty, and promote their business efficiently.
I help you tell your story through social media. I realize business owners wear many hats. I take social media marketing off your to-do list so you can focus on what you do best.
I have developed relationships with social media marketers and digital marketing companies across the country. I bring on team members when needed. I also work hand in hand with website developers,
marketing agencies, SEO specialists and entire marketing teams to better serve our customers and their needs.
So, whatever your business, your goals, my team and I can help.

- Where are you from?
- How long have you been involved with social media?
Personally, about 18 years. Professionally, about 13 years.
- What is your favorite social media platform and why?
For personal reasons, I like Instagram because it's just images and video. For business reasons, I like LinkedIn because it's an effective way to refer others.
- Charities and/or causes you care about?
I'm kind of all over the map. From civil rights to domestic violence awareness to challenging America's nutrition standards. Currently, I sit on the board of Pennies for Quarters, who's mission is to build and maintain a transitional community to help homeless veterans get back on their feet.
- Hobbies/Activities/Fun stuff you do on the weekends?
I love anything outdoors and/or involved fitness. Love going on daily walks, yoga, meditation, and gardening. Bleeding orange and blue on Saturdays in the Fall (Go Gators!)
One, her name is Alli, she's a rescue mutt
- If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you'd do?
Honestly....the adult in me says hire an attorney. But I'd love the opportunity to be able to drastically impact the lives of others. Just to be able to pay someone's mortgage off or send someone's kids to college. That would be amazing.
- Who is your hero? And why?
This one is tough, I admire strong women. Women strong in faith, strong willed and willing to do whatever it takes for their family and the greater good. My grandmother is one of these women.
- If you weren’t doing what you do today, what other job would you have?
Maybe a yoga instructor or a professional traveling blogger.
- What “lesson from mom” do you still live by today?
It's a play on a Dr. Seuss quote. Always be yourself. People who mind don't matter. People who matter don't mind..
- If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Anywhere in the sunshine without internet, TV or phone service but surrounded by family and friends. One of my favorite places to do this is Hope Town and the Abacos, Bahamas.
