Wherever You Go, There you are

I was talking to my mom last week about business stuff. Talking about moving my business forward, what the next steps are for her businesses, and how we can help each other make ourselves and our businesses better. She was telling me about how she would have probably called her dad, my grandpa, about what to do. She was telling me a story about how she had called him multiple times trying to decide on the perfect first name for…

Pushing Myself Forward

Today, I did something I am always terrified to do, I went to an event where I did not know a single soul. Scary? Yes! What if I made a fool of myself, said something stupid, or worse. But I was more terrified of what if I didn’t go? I have always identified myself as an introvert. I prefer to do things at home (maybe that’s part of why I started this business?), or with a small group of people.…

Designing My Life & You Can Too

I was struggling with trying to change my life and career. I wanted to please everyone, but most importantly I wanted to make myself happy. Fast forward to 2019, I am the owner of Simple Assistance & Marketing, mother to a 1 year old and 4 cats,…

Braves Win! Social Media Celebration!

Over the weekend, while my daughter and I napped, my husband was watching the Atlanta Braves baseball game. It was the game that ended up allowing them to clinch the National League East Division Title. The first time in 5 years! He woke me up to catch the final 3 outs so that I could celebrate. And even though I had been tired, knew I would want to watch not only those last outs but also to see the guys…

Attending WordCamp Peoria 2018

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of being able to attend the 2nd annual WordCamp Peoria 2018. While I did not stay the whole time, the sessions I was able to sit through gave me a lot of great ideas for working on a website/business for not only myself but also for clients. I got ideas for plugins to use with my WordPress website to make it work exactly like I want it to, as well as ROI does not…

Superheros need help too

So if you saw my Facebook post a while back, you would see a story that someone reminded me recently that Wonder Woman sometimes asked for help. It really got me thinking that business owners and CEOs are the superheros of their business. They do the things no one sees behind the scenes, and are always working to protect their business. Much like Batman, Superman, Captain America, etc. It’s great that they can do this. However, what are the things…

Where To Start…

So often when businesses are looking for help, the first question I ask is “what do you need help with?” or “where do you want to start?” But what happens if you don’t know the answer to that question? What if you don’t know where to start? I have had meetings and often heard well “what do you think?”. And honestly, my response is usually, “that depends on what your goals are.” You see, depending on the stage of business…
