n addition to Squarespace website design, I train entrepreneurs on developing strategies to start or grow their business. Lately I've seen a shift in clients from start-ups to seasoned entrepreneurs who have been in business for between 2-5 years. They come to me because they're stuck.

I'd always heard the word mastermind bantered about, but I'd never thought that investing in one was something I needed to do. It was a fancy word, the people inside must be incredibly smart and to repeat myself, fancy. I suffered from some pretty severe imposter syndrome when it came to that word.
Then I noticed that the word, Mastermind, started appearing in front of me in many places, like podcasts, advertisements and online in searches.

Okay, so, I'm a writer and as a writer, I find, well, writing, easy. But I recognize not everyone shares my feelings on this. I meet with hundreds of clients a year and as I'm advising them on their digital growth strategy, inevitably, one of my first questions is, are you able to add a blog to your website?
My answer is, always, 100%, yes! Anyone can write a blog, and I've compiled some steps you can take to get started!Read More
