I didn't always have this business, I started out running an errand and girl-friday service after my daughter was born in 2001. I couldn't imagine leaving her with someone else 12 hours a day, so I started a business where I could take her with me wherever I went!
So, I slapped on some car magnets, created a website and within a few months I had a full client roster and was hiring staff to help me run the biz. It was awesome!
After a couple of years of building my business in San Diego, I decided to move my family to Arizona to buy our first home. I continued to grow my business in San Diego and Arizona, but as time went on, I started dreaming up a new business idea. One that would connect busy women entrepreneurs. And, that is when the Girlfriend's Biz Alliance was born.
Just like my first business, this new venture took off quickly. The first chapter meeting exceeded my space availability and within 6 months of opening my first women's only networking chapter, I had 6 more chapters that spanned across the state of Arizona and Ohio. The funny thing was... even though I was a total introvert, I was a networking queen!
During this time (2008 or so) online marketing was just starting to become "the thing" and I had a natural knack for it, so I started teaching online marketing at my chapter meetings to help these ladies grow their businesses.
Before I knew it, they were coming to me for individual consulting and implementation. Literally, in a blink of an eye, I had a online marketing and consulting business and I loved it!
Fast forward to now, I have worked with hundreds of clients of all sizes from brick-and-mortar, ecommerce and online service and product based businesses create and implement online marketing strategies that grow their businesses.
I am passionate about helping women entrepreneurs (and some men) create thriving businesses without sacrificing the things they love, like family.
I know when it comes to running a business, it can be stressful wearing so many different hats! As you may have discovered, marketing is an essential part of running a successful business.
That is why, I founded Heart and Soul Biz Essentials. It's your answer to finding a trustworthy, reliable team who can add invaluable time back in your day and get the support you need to take your business to the next level.
