What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business is a Digital Marketing Agency. We specialize in Website Design and Development, WordPress security, and E-Mail Marketing. We have clients from all different business sectors. These include Non-Profits, Real Estate Sector, Information Technology Sector, Health Coaching Clients, and Retail Clients. We can help any type of business, from a small business to a multi-national.

Tell us about yourself

After a 21-year career in health care providing technical support, I started a Digital Marketing Agency 14 years ago. At that time, we were only doing websites. Since then, we have grown. I am motivated by serving my clients and helping them succeed.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

One of them was helping a client run ads that had a $2000 ad spend. This transited into $80,000 in sales for the client.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Sometimes it is managing your time and trying to balance multiple clients.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Find mentors smarter than you.
  2. Learn from your mistakes.
  3. Become an avid reader. This will help you in the long run.

Where can people find you and your business?
