By Jennie Lyon / September 11, 2018

Recently, there have been a number of stories in the news that a record number of pregnant women are running for political office, more than any other point in our country’s history. This absolutely remarkable shift was foreshadowed just a few short months ago when the sitting Prime Minister of New Zealand gave birth to her daughter. Can you imagine being the leader of a country while at the exact same time balancing the responsibilities of being a new parent? For many small business owners out there, it’s easy because they are going through something very similar. The first few…

By Jennie Lyon / August 28, 2018

When was the last time that you got a really good night’s sleep? As a small business owner myself, I know what it’s like to have to have to work 12 to 14 hour days. Back when I first started my business, I would get up in the morning, work all day, and then go to sleep. It’s rewarding, no question, but also exhausting. And what choice do we have?

Refresh Your Website and Blog Content With a Virtual Assistant

How many old blog posts do you have on your website? If you’ve been in business for a while, there is a good chance that you have a gigantic back library of blog posts that stretch back years.

But what if you could recycle and refresh them? What if you could take all of that valuable, old material you invested tremendous time and effort into and bring them back to life with a copywriting “punch-up”,…

When It Comes to Running a Small Business, Systems are EVERYTHING

By Jennie Lyon / June 5, 2018

You know the most difficult step of any endeavor? Getting started. It’s always those first few steps that are the trickiest, especially when you are starting a small business. As an entrepreneur, I remember the very early days of starting my own small business. I felt like I had everything to do and no time to do it.

Thankfully, most small business owners don’t have to sustain it after the first few months because, by…

Try, Try Again: Why You Should Give Digital Advertising a Second Chance

By Jennie Lyon / March 27, 2018
Why You Should Give Digital Advertising a Second Chance

Digital advertising is easy. Effective digital advertising, that’s hard. One of the most common things I hear from many of my new clients is that they have always gotten poor results from their digital marketing efforts. It just “doesn’t work” for them, so they tend to fall back on more traditional advertising methods. But here is the problem: digital marketing IS the standard form of advertising these days. Nowhere else can offer you the same ROI for your advertising dollars.

How a small edge over your competitors can make a big difference

Do you have the edge? If you look back at the history of successful businesses, it is often just a single, tiny edge that made the difference between the winners and the losers.
