life in general.
It’s funny – as open as I am about my life in general, the one thing I don’t typically share about on my platforms is my life as an entrepreneur … which is extra ironic, because that’s how this whole online outlet started for me. As a multi-passionate entrepreneur, I’ve started & stopped multiple businesses, & learned more about myself in doing so than in doing anything else in my life. It’s funny – owning your own business brings out new levels to yourself that you never knew existed. Just when you think you’ve got nothing left to give … you discover you’re more resilient & resourceful than you’d previously known otherwise.
My world revolves around social media, no matter how you look at it. Outside of SignedM., I work as a learning facilitator at Kirkwood Community College, where I teach courses on social media marketing & strategy. In addition, much of my time is dedicated to working as a freelance social marketing strategist – I’ve consulted with dozens of small businesses, helping them develop social media strategies that support their business goals, as well as serving as director of marketing for several nonprofits & political campaigns.
Other than that, I’m married to a pretty good guy whom I definitely think is kinda cute. & he definitely thinks he’s really funny … 😉. I’m a girl full of great big crazy business ideas & a strong drive to change the world for the better, & he loves me enough to provide real, honest feedback & his unconditional support in every decision I make.
Together, we have *the cutest* little fur family: Osman is our wire fox terrier pup & also the cutest, smartest, best boy who’s ever lived … & he has three crazy (sometimes cool, but mostly just hairy – really, really hairy) cat siblings.
D. & I’s life together is new & exciting each & every day – & I suppose that’s how it goes with two creative entrepreneurial spirits. We’re here for all the ups & downs, lefts & rights of this crazy thing we call life, as long as we can ride it out together.
I’m honored & humbled by the fact that you find me interesting enough to check out my space – so thank you for making me feel cool! & I love-love-love hearing from like-minded individuals, as well as collaborating with amazing people – feel free to pop into my inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) any time!
