What do you do?

My passion is partnering with small business owners to build lasting relationships that allow us to work together through designing strategies, mapping future success, overseeing short-term and long-term projects, and utilizing resources and technology to make an impact within the clients’ organizations.

As an energetic, proactive, and collaborative entrepreneur for over 16 years, I know the dedication, motivation, and teamwork it takes to elevate your business from a hobby to a profitable endeavor. While providing my expertise through consulting, I am able to use my own business history, background, and education to influence client outcomes.

What does an average day look like for you?

My morning routine is something that is a priority for me- it sets me up for a successful day! I work from a checklist of high, medium, and low priorities. I have scheduled check-in times with myself to keep me on track.

How did you get here?

I started on the Upwork platform to gain clients, refine my skills, and figure out what freelance services I wanted to offer. I stay on the Upwork platform for the ease and convenience of billing, time tracking, and my positive client portfolio.

What mistakes did you make along the way that others should avoid? 

Letting clients be in the driver's seat- this is how you lose your boundaries and clients expect way more than you are able to give them. When you take control and have boundaries in place for your client's life is way better! Develop your process and stick with it- clients will adapt!

If you could go back, what advice would you give yourself when you first started out?

Keep self-care as a top priority. Organize your schedule so you own your schedule and your schedule doesn't own you.

What are your favorite platforms/tools?

  • Kajabi
  • Trello
  • Asana
  • Calendly
  • Voxer
