I'm a huge fan of the Brené Brown quote:
"We don't have to do it all alone. We were never meant to..."
I am a devoted DIY-er. I see something at a craft fair? I want to make it myself. I taste a great meal at a restaurant? I'll cook it myself next time. I see a fabulous dress at a shop? I can find a pattern for that!
In this realm of web design and online marketing, however, it makes complete sense to have the expert guides you need, so that your investment can truly grow your practice.
With that in mind, I've featured some of my favorite people to help with your website copy, branding & logo, social media, systems set-up and more. New SEO resource coming soon!

MEET JAYLANA: My invoicing doula!
Jaylana is my bookkeeper, also known as my invoicing & QuickBooks doula... I'm a big believer in getting support with the parts that we aren't good at - and bookkeeping is Definitely not one of my strengths. I'm thrilled to have her as part of the team keeping everything on track.

Through Accounted For, LLC Jaylana partners with small to medium sized businesses that are heavily serviced-based.

MEET LYNDA: My administrative doula!
Meet Lynda, my virtual assistant. Lynda keeps me sane. Owner of AquaBlue Virtual Services, she is a Certified Online Business Manager who geeks out on systems and processes the way that I geek out on design & online strategy. Thank goodness! Most of what Lynda does is behind-the-scenes, but you might get an occasional email from her when she is helping out with your project admin.
Lynda lives in Sunny Florida with her husband and 3 kids. Lynda and her family will usually be found on the lake, a beach or in the pasture with their horses and cattle!
COMING SOON: My social media doulas!
After years of resisting social media, I'm making a bold attempt to say Yes by working with my new social media doulas. Yes, it will still be me answering your questions & comments on facebook & instagram, because that's the part of social media that I truly enjoy. They will be helping me repurpose all the awesome content I have created over the years to be sure you get the helpful tips & support you need to make the most of your website!
