Describe your business in a few words.
I help companies grow by helping them become the go-to brand for their customers.
We work together to attract new customers and keep existing clients coming back for more. From in-person to online, I help them understand who their customers are and how to connect with them.
What inspired you to start your business?
It made me sad to see businesses struggling to understand how their website, blog, social media, etc., fit into their business model. I saw that I could help entrepreneurs and small business owners find the right digital pieces and use them to create better connections with their clients.
One interesting or fun fact about you or your business.
My sister volunteered me to put my head in a guillotine at a magic show when we were kids.
Biggest lesson you’ve learned since starting your business.
Take time to make sure that the decisions you're making around your business aren't rooted in fear.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I'm learning to horseback ride with my daughter and I love getting outside to hike with my family.
Favorite thing about coworking:
But, there are so many things I love about URBN Cowork. If I had to choose one, it would be the people.
How would you describe coworking to somebody?
Coworking provides a friendly and productive space, with strong WiFi, bottomless coffee, and great people, where you can focus on your business.
