Hi I’m Renee, Chief Geek Around Here

Oh how much do I dread writing these kinds of things. You know that whole, heck check me out kind of thing.

You see I’m an introvert, through and through and I kind of prefer sitting at the back of the room, observing, watching and figuring it all out.

Can’t really do that though when I’m wanting you to get an idea of what I do, how I can help you and why you’d even want me to help you.

If you want to see what I’m up to now – check it all out here

We can enjoy the awkward silences together, well at least until I get to really know you and well then you won’t be able to shut me up!

As a digital business owner you have A LOT on your plate.

Today’s online business environment is VERY different than when I started building my first business in 2008.

You have an idea and you KNOW deep inside that building a business online is the fastest route to success, yet you’re still struggling and you’re frustrated with where you are right now AND you wish it would go faster.

My story…

I could give you my whole, “crap I knew I needed to do something different” story, where I only had “5 dollars to my name”, but the truth of it all is I don’t have that kind of story.

It was exhausting and I knew that I wanted something different.  What that was I didn’t have a clue and I don’t think I even really have that clue yet, but that’s okay.  It’s all about the journey and doing what fuels my soul and heart.

I can tell you that in 2008, I was commuting 90 minutes each way to work to a job I wasn’t all that excited about and felt that I was running on automatic.  I was tired, of the mundane the same thing each and every day.  Get up, commute to work, see the same zombie like folks on the bus with me, going through the motions.

In 2008, I launched the first version of my business. Redhead Business Management.  I had heard the term Virtual Assistant and had done my research.  I loved technology, enjoyed doing PowerPoint Presentations, creating awesome looking documents so I figured I could help business owners do the same.

Oh boy, did that not last long.

I quickly found out that most small and tiny business owners struggled with more than just documents and my tiny virtual assistant business quickly morphed into a technical marketing boutique helping creative leaders create amazing online presences.

Back in 2008, I discovered WordPress and found a platform for creating websites and so much more that I fell in love with.

I also discovered that I’m a bit of an application and software geek!

In finding the right solutions for my clients, not simply providing them with a solution because I could get a kick back or because some “guru” told them they needed it, I discovered that a passion of mine is discovering new applicationstesting them out and seeing how it might help my clients.  I would often listen to my clients struggles the brainstorm simple solutions that could work for them.

It wasn’t about telling them that they “had” to use one solution, it was about providing the options and educating them to use what was right for their business.

I’m here to make your technical parts of your business function better

I believe that we can be build a sustainable and profitable business on our own terms that fits our lifestyle and most of all supports our why.

My Why….

To control my destiny and live my life my way.  You see I’ve always been one to beat my own drum, not listen to the conventional way of doing things.

Even when I was working in the corporate world, I was always the one to ask, why are we doing it that way. Maybe there’s a different way that could work better.

Everyday I wake up with the idea that I’m creating my own path, living my life by my choice and not by someone else’s terms.

I do believe that we are each human, deserve of each other’s respect for our differences and that I’m in no place to judge you, just because you have a different viewpoint.

I’m the Chief Redhead here and I bring 25+ years of working in marketing & technology. Since 2008 I have been running my own awesome business online.
