Like many young people, I was compulsorily schooled in how to write grammatically-correct English. However, it was my love of how the English language was constructed that led to my completion of a BA in English Literature.
Being averse to becoming the clichéd English teacher or journalist as urged by my degree, I instead explored the worlds of customer service, sales, and marketing while I worked out what path I wanted to professionally pursue. This led me to hone my English skills in small business marketing, copy writing, content creation, website design, and ultimately in the burgeoning new world of social media – at the time of its inception and wide-spread rejection by small business as ‘just another fad’!
✿ Sales & Marketing Expertise ✿
So what began as an exploration into sales and marketing became the path I have followed for 25+ years, including:
- 11 years running a retail IT business;
- Training with some of the best business minds and speakers in Australia;
- Development of broad skills, encompassing key aspects of running, building and creating healthy small businesses in different industries;
- Working in both face-to-face and online customer environments, gaining a wealth of customer service experience (critical to the creation of effective marketing materials);
- Learning how to create and sustain winning customer relationships.
✿ Alternative Health & Spirituality Websites are my Specialty ✿
In addition, my passion for self-growth, spirituality, organic lifestyle and flower essences led to working for 10 years as the International Correspondence Course Tutor, International College Course Teacher Trainer plus creating the first Facebook page for the alternative health company, Australian Bush Flower Essences (which stood at a healthy 12K following at the time I left!).
This extensive work broadened my horizons so I am now well-versed at building websites and managing social media for alternative therapists, holistic health practices, alternative & energetic healers, mediums and psychics. I offer an understanding of the different energetic requirements of the owners of these websites and therefore can offer a wealth of experience to these dedicated souls – who typically do not want be burdened with the necessary creation of marketing tools!
