She caught the essence of me
Liz and I started working together in December, 2014. The goal was to develop a website for my fledgling, dream business designing and creating rosaries and jewelry. It was to be something for a small business that would provide supplemental income in retirement while doing the creative process I love. Liz is an expert listener. She led me patiently through the myriad tasks associated with starting an online business. The minutia was overwhelming for me at times, but Liz juggled it all seamlessly. She did the website design and we worked together easily and creatively. She always made it so easy for me.
She did the photography for the website. She made me look beautiful. She picked beautiful settings for my pictures and she caught the essence of me and my personality for everyone visiting my website to see. She even performed Reiki on me when I started to feel unwell. Then she got great pictures of the aftermath when I was in almost a zen-like state. She took stunning pictures of my jewelry and rosaries.
The result of all her hard work, effort, patience, creativity and dedication is a GORGEOUS website. I’ve had very highly paid entrepreneurs compliment the beauty of my website. After completing the website and “going live” Liz trained me to update the site, create marketing materials in Mailchimp, as well as for Facebook and print. She encouraged me unfailingly and made suggestions to improve and build my business. She has been a Godsend, a facilitator, a trainer, a friend, and a source of neverending encouragement and creative ideas.
My worklife had always been made up of office jobs. I always felt as if I was in bondage to the boss and the paycheck. For the first time in my life that is no longer true! The result is Freedom! I feel like Martin Luther King. “Free at last! Free at last! Great God Almighty! I’m FREE at last!” And Liz facilitated every aspect of it. Thank you Liz for everything!
rare combination of a creative, artistic spirit mixed with technical know-how
Liz has that rare combination of a creative, artistic spirit mixed with technical know-how and an eye for detail. What that meant was that I could trust her with the look of my website, and at the same time if I forgot something or even sent copy that wasn’t formatted correctly, she would catch and fix it. That gave me peace of mind knowing that what if I missed something, she would not.
In addition, she is always up leveling the quality of what I put out. She suggests better design ideas, marketing ideas, widget ideas – all culled from her years of experience in all aspects of an entrepreneurial business. So it’s like getting a design person, a technical person and a business person all in one! Finally, she never assumes you know how to do something. So even though I’m pretty low-tech, she very patiently explained what she was doing and how to do my end of things. It was a joy to work with her.
Website consistently draws clients who are a great match
Choosing the right person to create a website is an important decision for any solo entrepreneur. One of the biggest challenges is finding someone who combines technical expertise with an artistic eye as well as an understanding of marketing. Liz really did have the right “web medicine” for my business.
Liz not only crafted a beautiful site that functions well, she also created a custom logo and helped me with rebranding. The new website consistently draws clients who are a great match for the unique services I offer. It could be hard to explain just what will happen when an organization brings me in for leadership training on the “6 Ps of Presence” or “Your Epic story,” or when a client hires me for a full day of Soul Retrieval Coaching. Once people go to my website though, they get it.
That’s exactly what I was hoping for, and Liz made it happen. I am so pleased with the site she created for me.
Liz was everything I needed
All I knew about website development before meeting Liz, was that I needed one. As a self proclaimed technophobe, this task of marketing myself with a website and social media presence was a dreaded task. Liz was everything I needed: she knows it all, from how to manifest design and function from conversations about my needs, to linking all media presence together.
Many of my clients and industry peers have commented on how gorgeous and functional my site is, especially the mobile version. If you need advise about upgrading your site, or building one, you just HAVE to see Liz.
She feels so connected to the technology necessary
I love working with Liz because she feels so connected to the technology necessary to have a good presence on the web while being grounded in knowledge and serenity.
Working with Liz was like sitting on my front porch drinking a good cup of coffee on a crisp fall morning. She didn’t tell me what to do, she told me how I could use my own imagination and communicate the peace and serenity for my practice. Using the tools and the dashboard sitting side-by-side working one-on-one for just a few sessions really helped me gain the confidence to keep my website up-to-date.
A great wealth of information and wisdom
It was a pleasure working with Liz when I started my business. She helped to design my first website and even did a redesign when I was ready to expand my offerings. Her eye for visual aesthetics was a wonderful asset. I can’t tell you how many people commented on how beautiful my website was.
I learned a tremendous amount from Liz, from how to update my own Word Press site to offering an online course. She was a great wealth of information and wisdom and was excellent at explaining things verbally as well as in written form.
Liz is a team player and fun to work with and was a super fit for what I was looking for.
It looks EXACTLY like I had in my head
When I started my business almost three years ago, I had ideas about how I wanted my website to look. Working with Liz made the process easy. She asked me questions that helped her make the best use of my product and we got rave reviews on the photos. We recently revamped the site and it looks EXACTLY like I had in my head. It was exciting to see my visions come to life. Liz continually monitors my site, supports me less than adequate technical skills and has the BEST availability. Many times her soothing phone calls have prevented me from bashing my laptop with a hammer. I could NOT run my business without her!
Truly is a magical and wise Web Medicine Woman!
I’m a creative type and I’m very resistant to doing the “techie” stuff. I wish I didn’t have to but the desire to share my service which makes a positive impact on others overruled my fears when it came time for me to make my presence known on the world wide web. I also didn’t like feeling completely inadequate or unintelligent with all things web-related.
Liz found a way to appeal to my creative side and direct what I needed to know and consider on the technical/practical side as we created my website. She used her creativity to provide space for my own as she guided me through the process of choosing colors, backgrounds, fonts, and pictures that expressed what I wanted to communicate. She helped me understand how the non-verbal appearance and the written content along with how it was displayed could compliment each other. With her entrepreneurial business knowledge and listening to the direction I envisioned for my business, Liz presented me with options for content, how people could contact me and security that I would never have thought to consider. I felt confident with Liz’s ability to explain what I needed to know and her patience when I felt overwhelmed. As one middle-aged woman to another, she nurtured and empowered me without making me feel stupid even when she had to repeat some things I didn’t grasp right away.
While creating my site, Liz also kept in mind how my business might grow. That meant developing it in such a way that when I was ready to add things, we could do it easily and I could also learn how to maintain some of it myself. While I thought I wanted a very simple one page site to begin with, Liz’s expertise expanded my vision and has given me a website that is more appropriate to what I need and want to promote my business. It’s professional and clean, easy to navigate, and still creative, warm and inviting like me! I am very pleased with my website and have gotten many positive comments about it!
But it was the way Liz guided me through the sometimes painful and scary process of putting myself out there that leaves me with the best impression of working with her. She truly is a magical and wise Web Medicine Woman!
