The world of small business.
Connecting clients to those who matter most.
This is the part about me.
I am a “solo entrepreneur”! I specialize solely in websites. As a one-person show, I don’t have time to specialize in social media and email marketing (although I use both). But I want to be on the cutting edge for WEBSITES! Why? Because they are projects that mix new technology, creativity, and planning. And my interest in seeing my client’s businesses or organizations grow.
Below is a little about me and my interest in business and community. Do you relate? Love working on your business? Let me know. And again thanks for visiting! Nancy
GROWING UP IN UPSTATE NEW YORK
I grew up on Lake Ontario in the Town of Irondequoit in New York State. Pretty normal family with days spent playing kickball in the street and playing in the nearby “gully”. While everyone else’s dad seemed to work for Kodak or Xerox, my dad was an entrepreneur. Back in that day, in school, we were asked to go around the room and tell where our dads worked. (Weird, I know) So while everyone else was saying the two big options, I said IMPCO (Inserting, Mailing & Printing Company). I wanted a different but I know the world of small business. It was the center of our family as one business expanded to many.
MORE RECENT BACKGROUND
My background recently is in counseling clients (over 700) and running business planning programs. A great time that gave me insight into the life as a small business owner. Working for the MI-SBDC gave me insight and an understanding of my current clients.
I have had plenty of adventures and experiences. Leaving New York State and coming to Albion College was a biggie. I went from wearing t-shirts and jeans in high school (pretend hippie) coming to this tiny little college of plaid and preppy. Major culture clash! But along with my husband, I found lifelong friends and started very slowly fitting in. Transferring to Michigan State was my first introduction to computers (I used Fortran and was a tutor in the computer lab). Had a love for computers and whatever they could do at my first introduction!
FAITH AND FAMILY ARE MOST IMPORTANT TO ME
My husband and I have four children and three grandchildren. We have been blessed through them.
As a young mom, I had this quote framed:
There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings. ~Hodding Carter
THIS IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO ME WITH MY BUSINESS
- Value my time and my talents as a business owner
- Produce a high-quality product
- Treat people with respect
- Be humble in how I conduct myself
- Take risks and see new things
- Surround myself with the right people
- Give back
