set-yourself-apart

I’m not going to sugar-coat this: I’ve seen a lot of BAD WEBSITES. I mean really bad. I mean run away screaming “I’ll never hire you!” kinda bad. True story. You do NOT want to build a website that drives your potential customers and clients away. No, you want a website that attracts the right,…

Learning to build a website CHANGED the COURSE of my LIFE… for real.   I was in college learning how to be a Chemical Engineering Technologist, focused on Environmental.

Yesterday I got up at about 7:30am, shortly before my toddler girl Ella was likely to wake and tidied up the house. My son has been at his dad’s for the week so it’s been a quiet week for the summer. You know I’m all about the “Laptop Lifestyle” and helping people build that for…
