Are you a fledgling online biz owner?
Do you dream of having an online business that supports you doing what you love, but are hampered by the technology you know is required to get it off the ground, and really really really don’t like it on top of it all?
Are you a fledgling online business owner who wants to get past the overwhelm, confusion and downright terror of getting your business online yourself?
You know – quite probably with every fiber of your being - you want an online business: you want the freedom, flexibility, potentially unlimited income, and the END to the insecurity of putting all your eggs in one employer basket.
[which can be yanked away from you at any second]
I hear ya. I hear ya! But getting a business online successfully is a daunting task. I know, I’ve been building websites for over 20 years.
It ain’t easy.
There’s a lot involved, and it gets more complicated every year.
On of top of that, if you’re not super tech-minded, then thinking about getting a business online can seem really scary. So many choices, so much paralysis.
Maybe you started by trying to get a website going with a sitebuilder like Wix or Squarespace, and found it still too difficult in spite of all their claims, and don’t really want to pay a monthly fee until the end of time. Not to mention have to use templates that you know two hundred thousand other customers are also using and don’t know how to make their own.
On top of that, you know there’s more to having a successful online business than just a basic website. So maybe you’ve looked at all-in-one scenarios like Shopify or ConvertKit or Kajabi, thinking if you have your website, your email management, your shop, your courses, and your sales funnel all in one place, it would be easy.
Except it turned out to be ridiculous, because what do you know about websites, email management systems, shops or sales funnels?!? Never mind designing or building them?
And the cost! OMG the cost…
Content management systems, branding, social media push, website security, hosting, landing pages, SEO, payment systems, OMG what else do you have to think about??!?!?
The cool thing is, I can help you with all of that.
So don't give up!
Hi! We are Heather & George
I’m Heather (and this is my dog George), and I’ve been building websites for people for 20 years.
During that time, the most common complaint I heard (and boy, did I hear it a lot) was that business owners who were not tech-minded could not update or take care of their sites themselves in any way.
Clients hated being dependent on expensive developers, and I don’t blame them!
So I have spent the last ten years of my website-building career constantly researching and testing ways to produce beautiful, cross-functional sites that non-techies can manage themselves.
It has definitely been a challenge.
Born of Frustration
Thankfully, in recent years tools and programs have [finally] been created that are amazing and ideal for non-techie/non-coder folks — you — who want to be empowered to build and manage your online business (and all the necessary technology) on their own (without always paying a monthly fee!).
But how would you know about any of it, if you’re not in the website development business?
So, after much cajoling and convincing from others
who shall remain nameless, GEORGE, I created
