Welcome to My Homepage!
This site is custom made for the multi-tasking busy small business owner who wants to enter the world of online marketing. I am building an online marketing business as my ‘B Plan’ or what I like to call my ‘ER Plan’… that stands for Early Retirement Plan… and I would like to empower and inspire others on their journey to do the same!
This website and blog allows me the luxury of combining all my interests in one place, to explore my entrepreneurial spirit and assist and mentor others on a similar journey. How cool is that!
I Truly LOVE Marketing! And I find that there are a lot of small business owners out there that have no real online presence… yikes! And many small businesses that do have a website aren’t doing regular updates to their pages or aren’t using their sites to build a customer list or to communicate with their customers. Then there are those who are affiliate marketers and direct marketers who rely solely on the pre-packaged “free” cloned websites offered by their opportunities and those who pay a monthly fee for a cloned website. They aren’t building their own customer list either… double and triple yikes!
I want to EMPOWER SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS to…
- Create and Maintain a Marketing Plan that gets them On the Internet!
- Build and Own a Customer List!
- Communicate with Their Customers for Continued Growth and Success!
What Do I Mean by ‘Small Business Owners’? That is a term that is thrown around a lot and means different things to different people. I consider myself a small business owner and I work from home as an affiliate for a direct sales company. I consider ‘brick and mortar’ shop owners, online marketers and home-based business owners of all shapes and sizes to be small business owners. I also consider many professionals to be small business owners like real estate agents, chiropractors, landscapers, financial planners, carpet cleaners, etc. You can check out this POST for more examples because the lists can go on and on. The point is, as small business owners we all have the same need and desire to be in touch with and to be accessible to our customers.
Why Do Small Business Owners NEED An Online Presence?
Bottom line, your customers are tech savvy, whether you are or not! You HAVE to meet them where they are and stay connected to them. If your business isn’t taking part in the the online marketplace, your run the risk of:
- Losing Control of Your Business Reputation

It is my sincere desire to mentor and assist small business owners with their online marketing efforts. It has been my experience that some small business owners feel online marketing can be … complicated. Many just avoid getting involved.
