Hello Dreamers & Doer's
First, I hope this finds you all safe and in good health! In my small part of the world, we are presently going through what is called a third wave of COVID and yes, pretty much everything is lockdown…again.
So…Looks like I made a mistake in my signature re: last week I received an email that kindly asked ”I know who you are from your Newsletter in early 2020 & from the services you offer, still…Why Chief Nerd & Eternal Optimist?’
And you know what? She was totally right. I should have been more specific, as some of you subscribed to my Newsletter latter in 2020 or 2021.
So here goes – in a nutshell.
I’ve been working from the web since 2005.
Yes, it’s been that long, and started out as a Virtual Assistant in 2007. Since I’m more designed inclined, by 2009 I moved my focus to creating & developing Brand & eCommerce websites using the WordPress platform. I’m also quite fascinated by marketing per se, and in 2010 took a one year course in Brand creation & Social Media and Internet Marketing.
Forgot… Web Accountability Partner?
I believe in accountability. In other words, if you say you are going to do something, do it.
And I know too well, it’s not easy and it seems even less so these days. So, that’s why I added this lofty title…as my goal is to help others and myself stay on track and get things done!

I also received a ‘pointy’ email last week asking me…‘Why do you send out this newsletter? What is the purpose?
My goal is to show that regardless of the hardships we go through, if we put our minds to it, we can create and make good things happen.
So as such, my goal is to show the process. Emotionally & Business.
My goal is also to help…Because in some small way, if a freebie, posting your business info to the Marketing or…if just reading the latest news made you smile, or helped you in your some ways…
