Gratitude

At the end of 2012, I had a clear vision of where I wanted to take my business, and my life, for that matter. I vowed to myself that I would take the next year to expand my knowledge, work on myself and make my vision come true. I had no idea how I was going to do it but I knew, somehow, I would.

The next twelve months ended up being the most enlightening, fruitful, exhausting, dig-deep-and-get-your-hands-dirty and, oh yeah, fun year I’ve ever had. I knew I couldn’t make any of it happen alone so I embarked on one of the best business and life decisions I’ve made in a long time. In steps, I began working with the following fabulous team that helped take my vision and bring it to life. I am humbled by their talents and ooze gratitude for each and every one of them. Join me in a virtual group happy dance for:

Amanda Winn, Wholehearted Business Development Solutions

You know when you come across a person and you feel you were meant to meet them? That’s how it was when I first met Amanda. I just knew I had made the best decision in my entire business career. Her insights, commitment to her clients, organization, expertise and drive to meet deadlines just blew me away. What really got me were the personal connections she makes and strives to maintain with her clients. She is authentic, true and the real deal. You are fortunate if you have the opportunity to work with Amanda.

Andrew Hayes, Website Producer, Hayes Media Group

There needs to be a new word created to appropriately describe Andy. Amazing, Awesome, Astounding just doesn’t cut it and those are only the “A” words! When I look at my website and marketing materials Andy has created, I see my vision come true. You want a mesmerizing website? Want to work with someone on the cutting edge of website design and development? Call this man. No wait, just go to Portland and track him down. Really, I mean it . . .  go . . . now!

Katie Grant, Copywriter, Plume Copy

Katie is a writing maven! We didn’t meet once throughout the process and yet she was still able to understand who I was and what I wanted from the website. Her ability to assist me with writing and editing copy that is not only whimsical, informative and cheeky was right on point; she just got me. Katie has this uncanny ability to understand her clients and provide copy as though it came from them directly. Trust me, work with her, you won’t regret it.

Marla Smith, Photographer, Marla Smith Photography

If “a picture paints a 1000 words,” the images Marla made for my site could fill volumes in a library! First of all, Marla is a dream to work with. She just “gets it” and worked tirelessly on this project going above and beyond what was expected of her. Her eye for how to make a picture come to life is a gift. I enjoyed the entire process working with Marla and I can’t wait for out next project together.
