How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I love learning about what you do and where you want your business to go and then brainstorming ways to use social media to reach and engage your target markets in a sustainable and do-able way.
I don't bring my own agenda to the table. It's about you, your goals, your market, and then I work with you to make that a reality. That doesn't mean I don't have ideas, but that I'm flexible and ready to roll with whatever we need to do to get it done. I'm on top of the trends, what works and what really doesn't so we can minimize the time spent chasing rainbows and maximise results.
