Tell us about yourself
I have 25 years of experience in sales, advertising, and marketing. After spending time in the corporate world, I decided to start my own business. Shoreline Social Media Group was founded on the principle of helping small businesses succeed. My team and I are passionate about our work and will never rest until our clients are satisfied.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
It was a difficult decision, but it was the right one. Starting a business without the comfort of a paycheck is never easy, but it's worth it in the end. Struggling to land clients is frustrating, but with hard work, perseverance, and a little luck, it all comes together.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The buck stops with me. As the CEO of my company, I take on the good and bad. Sometimes I make the right decisions, and sometimes I make the wrong ones - but it's how I move forward that sets entrepreneurs apart. Having been in the corporate world, and have extensive experience in business operations and strategy. I genuinely believe that success is all about perseverance and resilience - two traits that I have in abundance.

- Build a good foundation for your business.
- Setbacks only make you stronger.
