be yourself


yes, even online.

be yourself


yes, even online.

I believe in you. 

You are brave, creative, and inspiring. You have important things to say, and as you sing the song of your passion with your authentic voice (whether or not you can carry a tune), you create echoes and ripples throughout the ecosystem of your tribe. If you call, they will come. They will come to your website to learn who you are, see what you see, listen to your story. 

When people search for you, what do you want them to find?

It's not easy to be vulnerable, especially online, and especially if you're not used to feeling exposed. It can feel boastful, uncomfortable, inauthentic - but that's ONLY if the space you occupy online doesn't resonate - doesn't feel like you. 

Let's build something new. Let's decorate it with care, as you would your home. We will fill it with your unique and beautiful ideas, images, and messages to reflect and illustrate your passion, your expertise, the way you live your days and work your very hardest. If it feels like home, it'll be easy to invite your friends over.

 

where do we start? below the foundation, in the dark soil, there are your roots.

 

...(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows

higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)...

MY PROCESS: TALK, WRITE, LISTEN, IMAGINE, CREATE, REPEAT.

In order for me to create your website, I have to know who you are. I need to understand what makes you tick, what you like, what makes you laugh and cry, who you want to surround yourself with. I need to dig down to your roots, where your true purpose lives - the intersection of what you're good at, what you get paid for, what you love, and what the world needs.

We will have many conversations.

I will ask a lot of questions, and I will listen deeply.

There are a few things that are essential for making a great website. Here they are (in no particular order):

1. Photos. Excellent, high-resolution, professional. If you have these already in your possession - amazing. If you don't, you'll want to consider the purchase of stock photos, or hiring a photographer to take personalized 'unstock' photos for you. For example, if you're a massage therapist, you'll probably need images of hands on bodies, and it would be nice if those hands were yours! Seriously, the photos can make or break a site. 

2. Vision. Compelling, realistic, authentic. I'm not saying you need to have all of your content mapped out and written, but at the very least, your vision, your mission, and your purpose/passion statements should be pretty solid. A tagline would be nice, but we can always come up with that together. 

3. Trust. In yourself, in your gut, in your abilities. Whether you're starting a new business or rebranding yourself, you're taking a big and necessary risk. I'd also like you to trust in me, as a person who cares deeply about both your success and happiness with the final product. 

4. Identity. As in brand - colors, illustrations, fonts - the whole shebang. I'm not a graphic designer, and even though I can create a simple logo and workable color palette, it would really be best for you to let me call in the professionals. If you're serious about the building the complete package with thoughtfulness, you're going to need to jump in with both feet and work with a designer to get your visual ducks in a row. 

i will work until the work is done (and probably beyond)

A key piece of value I bring to your website or writing project is this: I will iterate until you are satisfied, and I will continue supporting you after the project has been completed. That's just how I roll. When it comes to your website, I also want you to understand how to use it, so I will spend focused time with you and make sure you know the basics.
