Online Business and Marketing Solutions Strategist

My mission is to spread the word about WordPress and how it can be used to create efficient, and powerful online business websites. I'm committed to teaching individuals and businesses how to take control of their presence online by creating and managing their own website sales and marketing campaigns.

I accomplish this goal by providing consistent and detailed content that explains web development and business marketing concepts and methods in a clear and easy to understand manner.

If you’ve ever used a type writer, Microsoft Word, or any other word processor, you have the skills necessary to build your own online business website powered by WordPress.
