I started my freelance marketing business in 2007 as a side to my "day job".
That job brought in the proverbial steady paycheck but it was not a great place for my joy.
Still, in that context, programming planning, connecting with people, getting the word out on events I curated, and the rush of it all coming together kept me going.
That made me decide to start offering creative people, small businesses and entrepreneurs low cost marketing services. Soon I was also helping with branding, event planning and fundraisers for all sorts of good causes.
Eventually, in 2016, I took the leap and set out on my own.
Over the years I have had many successful experiences and learned a lot along the way.
Also, over those years, with the growth of technology, incredibly cost effective opportunities have presented themselves in terms of marketing and promotion.
When COVID-19 hit in March 2020 we were all thrust into a strange new world. In that world it became even clearer that digital outreach and virtual events were crucial to staying connected and relevant. All that being said, right now, I can help you in the following ways:
