Mini-Festo

Why the goofy shots? Because a very good and patient friend had asked me to smile one too many times in pursuit of "the" head shot to end all head shots. I was done with the fake smiling and proceeded to be, well, me.


That’s how I feel about writing, running my business and helping clients. I won’t smile for the sake of smiling, I won’t write something for the sake of having something to say and I won't charge for services that businesses don't need

Do I have all the answers? Hell no. Otherwise I’d be much richer and better at smiling for the sake of smiling. But I have been where a lot of small business owners sometimes find themselves. Trying to get good services that fit in my budget and empower me to be better at my business. And the thought of helping others? That, my friends, makes me smile for real.

I use a few tools to get the jobs done:

A few things you might want to know about me but didn't want to ask:

I believe that all businesses deserve affordable and understandable tools to communicate with their customers. What I don't believe in is holding businesses hostage to a specialists skills. I teach you how to save time, money and frustration and build business success through better communication.

Why? Because I'm a born and trained teacher and it's what I do.

​How? By empowering you with the knowledge and tools to act and engage with your audience and clients. I'll work with you to create a strategy that makes the most of the resources you've got available which can grow and change with your business.

Why not teach business owners that they can:

  • Use the tools that work for communicating about their business
  • ​Engage with their audience online quickly and effectively in real time
  • Take advantage of promotional opportunities without having to wait for someone else
  • Share your expertise on a consistent basis
  • ​Make followers in to customers through personal interaction​
  • Find their audience on the right social media channel

A long-time volunteer across Halton Region, placing personal value on giving back to the community as leader / Community Guider with Girl Guides of Ontario and as a Board member for the Halton Fresh Food Box Program, I believe that helping others makes me a better person. So basically? It's all about how I can be of service and foster improvement for individuals and communities. 

Creative outlets include reading historical mysteries, photography (500px.com/MyCVPhotography), collecting vintage cookbooks and cake decorating.  Lists are a way of life and my bucket includes driving a '57 Chevy convertible across Canada and creating a safe space for autistic teens like my son to hang out and embrace the weirdness of life.
