I have a unique perspective on approaching technology and transforming the overwhelm into inspiration. I’ve found to my delight and surprise this is a universal conversation. I’d love to share it with your audience.

What I Like to Talk About

Welcome to the new “online frontier”, where it is suddenly mandatory to have a basic understanding of how to (a) manage your business website, (b) engage with social media, (c) grow an online audience, (d) master SEO and (e) Google Analytics, (f) generate authentic and compelling content, (g) maintain an active blog and newsletter, (h) know how to inspire and share your brand throughout the universe…. oh, and (i) continue to run your existing business.

Feeling overwhelmed and confused by it all? We all are! It’s perfectly natural to feel a bit lost. Actually, it would be odd if we didn’t!

Technology can feel intimidating, even burdensome, especially if you don’t see yourself as a “technical person”. Technology confronts us, makes us feel stupid, stops us.

But when we allow ourselves to be a beginner – maybe not even knowing the right questions to ask just yet – we can approach this conversation with a bit more patience and empathy. We may just discover a way to embrace technology and see it as a vast and powerful tool expressing our truest selves to an exciting new universe.

Together, you and I are going to figure this out.
