How to turn your idea into a business

I sat down and talked with Janet Whalen on her podcast, ‘She Breaks the Mold’ about how my business started with an idea while on a vacation in a Chicago hotel room, but ended up on a shelf at home once the vacation ended. Like most of us, I worried that I didn’t have what I needed to pull it off, wondered “who am I” to try to do it, and that I had to be someone other than who I really am to succeed.

I eventually started that business and now my sweet spot is coaching you from idea to online launch. I use my graphic design background as an add-on to help you get started with just the basics, or complete, done-for-you services that include building a website and brand in just two days! Thanks for having me on Janet!
