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. Why not teach business owners that they can:
- Share your expertise on a consistent basis
- Make followers in to customers through personal interaction
- Use the tools that are right for their business
- Engage with their audience online quickly and effectively in real time
- Take advantage of opportunities without having to wait for someone else
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. And when I decided a couple of years later to do them myself, well, nothing had changed.
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.

A long-time volunteer, placing personal value on giving back to the community. How? As a former leader / Community Guider with Girl Guides of Ontario for 10 years, Parent Volunteer, OTMH Hospital Auxillary, Sunday School teacher and currently as a Board member for the Halton Fresh Food Box Program. I believe in being of service, making a difference and world peace. Well, not quite that Miss Universe but close.
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.
