My mission as a marketing consultant is to help entrepreneurs market like the pros.

Why do you need a marketing consultant?

Putting yourself out there is hard enough.  You want the world to read what you write, be helped by your coaching, to see your artwork, or think of your business first.  Yet not only do you have to contend with the emotional part of sharing what you do, you also feel like you have to become a master at marketing.  It’s a real challenge to build an audience, get engagement, create fans, and make a successful business for yourself. This is where I come in as a marketing consultant and coach. Let me help you achieve your dreams by teaching you how to get the most out of your marketing efforts through digital marketing and social media techniques.
