A bit about me...

Since 2005, my husband and I have run a small off-line business...successfully (as in, it makes money!). Starting in 2011, I began a second journey of creating an online brand (it also makes money!).  

On the surface, it might not seem obvious, but food blogging and marketing principles cross over. in a big way. You can't be successful in one without being successful in the other. Especially since my way of doing business is all about putting people first, not following the latest trends. Because of that, I have been able to adapt my work to the constant change.

6 years later, NellieBellie is now able to support my family and I in a flexible lifestyle that allows me to pursue my passions and live life on my terms.   

Well, mostly. I still have to work pretty hard. But I get to do it wherever I like while sipping my latte and deciding what I  - myself - think is most important.

Here's the deal; old-school marketing just doesn't cut it anymore. People don't want to be sold to, they want to be heard. They want people and companies to help make their lives easier and better.

So you need honest and straight-forward advice, resources, and strategies to move you to an online strategy that focuses on people. 

Honest. Straightforward. Interested in people.

That's me in a nutshell. 

I care about you and helping you. Sometimes I won't be the right person to help, so I'll send you to someone else. Sometimes you won't like what I have to say and I really don't care (Okay, I care a little. But I won't be totally devastated if you disagree with me). Sometimes you'll want to sit and keep taking course after course to learn all you can and I'll yell at you that the first thing you need to do is something. For the love of all that is sweet and delicious in this world, just do something. 

But no matter what, I want to help you.

Maybe that's exactly what you want...yay!

If not, no worries. I can't work with everyone; I don't want to work with everyone. Exhausting! (In fact, at the resources page is a list of other coaches you might find a better fit for you.)
