About Jennie, the Person
I live in sunny South Florida with my amazing husband Jayson, who I have been married to for 20 years, our fantastic 18-year old son Eben, a silly Pug named Noodles, and a super-sweet French Bulldog named Olive.

Jayson and I were married in 1999 when I was 22 and he was 27. (Wow, we were young!) Jayson is a fabulous husband and father, my best friend, and one of the most wonderful parts of my life. He has a way of making me laugh, no matter the situation, and is supportive beyond words. His love and encouragement have allowed me to grow. Jennie Lyon Digital Marketing & Virtual Assistant Services into a thriving business.

Eben, our son, is a fantastic, creative, and funny teenager who makes being a mother a pure delight — he is my EVERYTHING. He skipped his senior year of high school and is already working on his Bachelor's Degree, to say we are proud is an understatement! Eben is constantly coming up with fabulous ideas, inspiring me with his artwork, passion for the environment, and fearless approach to life.

And I can’t forget about the other two members of our family, our two super-duper sweet dogs! We have a Pug named Noodles, who is an absolute sweetheart and a furry ball full of energy. And we have Olive the French Bulldog, who is just the world’s best snuggle bunny. If you ever visit us, chances are you will quickly have a dog on your lap!

When I am not busy working away in my office, you can find me outside. I love paddleboarding, bicycling, beach-combing, hanging out with my boys, snapping photos for Instagram, walking my dogs, traveling, or floating in our pool reading a great book. Oh, and did I mention I may have a tiny addiction to Good n’ Plenty candies? True story.

About Jennie, the Entrepreneur

Now, that you know a little about my personal life, let me tell you more about how I got to where I am today as a digital marketing expert and virtual assistant and how that can benefit you and your business!

My first real job was working as a manager at Nordstrom during my senior year of high school, where I started to develop my project management, client relations, and marketing skills. I was looking for a fun summer job so when I heard that Nordstrom was taking applications for baristas in their cafe, I decided to give it a try. I found that I was great at interacting with customers, making specialty coffees, creating displays, and marketing the cafe. Three months in, my manager announced that he was transferring to another store. Wasting no time, I marched myself into the store manager’s office and asked for the cafe management position. I walked out of his office grinning ear to ear, having been promoted to management at 17-years old with only 3 months at the company. During my time at Nordstrom, I learned the essentials of being a great leader of a team, promoting sales, administration (budgets, planning, profits/loss), and providing superior customer service — something that Nordstrom is well-known for.

After my son was born in 2001, I decided to take all of that experience and strike out on my own, building a digital marketing and virtual assistant firm. I was very lucky to start my business with three innovative clients, Apple, AAA, and Walgreens. For Apple, I worked directly with their customers providing customer service, technical support, and sales. With AAA, I provided customers with customer support and roadside services. And for Walgreens, I provided customers with website support, pharmacy orders (Hooray! I was able to use my Pharmaceutical Science degree!), website sales, and customer service.

Unable to quench my entrepreneurial spirit, I was driven to start a green lifestyle blog — Sweet Greens — focusing on eco-friendly ways families can go green together. It quickly became an award-winning site with a large audience of engaged customers. I learned a lot about digital marketing throughout the process, and cultivated partnerships with some wonderful major brands including Target (the photo above is from a photoshoot I did with them!), Stonyfield Farm, Cascadian Farm, Inhabitots, Applegate, Green Child Magazine and some celebrities including Soleil Moon Frye (Punky Brewster) and Sabrina Soto.

With my newfound online experience and success, I really threw myself into my building my digital marketing and virtual assistant agency. I knew that with my digital marketing experience, including social media marketing, copywriting, web support, graphic design, opt-ins/landing pages, technical support, and email marketing services, I had a solid foundation to provide an amazing virtual assistant experience. Rave reviews and a ton of referrals from my clients soon followed, confirming to me that the future of marketing really was on the internet (This was back in 2001, remember!)

So, if you are struggling to find enough time in your day to focus on what you really love — or if you are great at seeing the big picture but need a partner to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks — let’s chat! I specialize in helping busy entrepreneurs organize, promote, and scale their brand to even greater levels of success. I’ve helped so many clients in the past, and I can help you too!

"Before working with Jennie, it was challenging to keep our content and website refreshed and up to date. Often, we wouldn't notice that something was outdated on our website until it was too late. We knew what wasn't working, but we didn't know what we didn't know. Enter Jennie.

Jennie brought us fresh new marketing ideas to keep things moving and looking good on social media and the web. Her process is efficient, quick, and turn-key. Now, people understand exactly what we do and HOW WELL we do it before coming to the website. It's no longer an uphill battle to make a sale. Jennie's excellent eye for detail and content support is, no doubt, a key driver for this outcome.

Today's business landscape is competitive. Unless you have the budget for in-house support, you need to outsource communication, web development, and social media. Jennie does all that, and more!"

“Jennie is my secret sauce! The startup phase of my new business was overwhelming me. I knew I needed a social media presence but did not know where to start, nor did I have the time to maintain it. Jennie has been awesome to work with! She created a wonderful digital presence for me online through my blog, Facebook, and Twitter. She keeps everything planned, scheduled, and maintained. I am amazed at how well she has gotten to know me and my business. She’s even able to write in “my voice”. Whenever I have had a few ideas I’d like to incorporate into my site, she would integrate them beautifully. This has been a huge help to me and allows me to better serve my clients and work on growing my business.”

"My fear of hiring a virtual assistant was, would they be competent, responsive, understand my wants and needs, and the big one, would they care as much about my business as I do? Would they only do what was asked, or would they be a proactive problem solver and really become a part of my team? Honestly, I expected the answers to all of those questions to be some version of “No”.

But Jennie has been a resounding “Yes”! Every time I give her a project or ask if she can help with something, her response is either “Yes,” or “I’ll figure it out.” And she does! Jennie just helped me with a big launch and I so appreciate all of the things that she took off of my plate. She did them, made them work, and then tested them to make sure they were right. It was a huge stress reliever for me.

As for my question of whether she cares about my business as much as I do, she does. She set up a whole new program for me, with items that needed to be done that I wasn’t even aware existed. Imagine my delight when I saw that, without even being asked, Jennie had done them for me! She could have skipped them. But she knew that they were important, so she just did them without prompting.

I truly appreciate the great work that Jennie does for me and my company. Her skills are a tremendous asset. I love how competent she is. Most of all, I love that she’s got the attitude and spirit to “figure it out” if that’s what’s required to get a project done or a problem solved."

She has helped me to exponentially grow my social media presence, develop an email subscriber list, create marketing launches, update/maintain my website, and write regular social media posts. Today, my social media and online marketing are on autopilot as she handles all of the details and timelines so that I don’t have too!

Jennie also helps me in many other aspects of my business including administration and client relations. She is a dream to work with – proactive, responsive, and diligent!

We trust her to manage all of our social media platforms, with very little input from us necessary. For a small start-up, you need someone who understands social media and your business.
