Growing up, I was bullied and became determined to make friends. After years of experimenting, I realized that making personal connections was key to starting successful relationships. That skill lives on in how I operate my business today. I help business owners stay top of mind bringing their offline networks online.
I empower fellow business owners to maximize their referral reputation on social media platforms like LinkedIn with my social media workshops and 1-on-1 accountability sessions.
