WHO ARE YOU?
So the worst question I have ever been asked in an interview for a job was, "Who are you?" How do you answer that? There are so many different answers and layers to me, as I'm sure there are to you. Some of my layers include daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, dreamer, hot mess, scaredy-cat, crazy ex-girlfriend, reserved, and risk taker. Other layers include loyal, punctual, capable, honest, helpful, well-meaning, hard-working, promise-keeping, and genuine. Pick your label. At the end of the day and in answer to that awful and generic question, my answer is I am human. I am ever-evolving, ever-improving, and ever-learning.
WHAT'S WITH THE NAME?
If you meet me now, you may never be able to guess that I was once crippled by social anxiety and I spent three years unable to leave my own home or speak to people other than my immediate family and a few close friends. I was so awkward and uncomfortable that I just shut the world out and lived in my bubble. I have come a long way since then, but the nagging feeling of being socially awkward is always there. The company name, Socially Awkward Media actually came to me after a very large event where I spoke in public to a room full of strangers for the first time. When I was heading home the name for my company just kind of fell on me like a ton of bricks. As soon as I walked in the door I checked to see if the domain name was available and here you are.
WHY DID YOU START A COMPANY INSTEAD OF WORKING FOR ONE?
I saw a need for small businesses, farms, and ranches to be able to purchase social media management and custom graphics at reasonable prices and it was a service I knew I was capable of delivering for them. Large businesses and corporations have teams of people to market their products and showcase their brands. They also have enormous budgets dedicated to those teams, but what about small businesses? What about your business? You don't have to pay tens of thousands of dollars to a team of people to have the same quality of marketing for your business right here in Victoria & in the Crossroads or beyond!
WHAT'S WITH ALL THE STICK FIGURES?
Stick to what you are good at. Get it?
I am also a member of:
I also served in the United States Air Force, that's not relevant other than if you are a veteran and you took the time to read this entire page to get to this point, it is worth noting that I offer a 10% discount to military veterans. Also, that discount applies to first responders in recognition of my time spent as an EMT.
