This is the post before the first post. The pre-post, the introductory post… you get the idea. This site has been months in the making (yes, I know it should have been a couple of weeks). I want to thank all of the people (or at least most of the people) that helped me.

Tina Forsyth ( and the wonderful women in the OBM mentorship group. Without them, I would’ve already given up.

Willie Jackson ( Great site design, great twitter page design. If you don’t know this guy, you will soon. He’s going places.

Chris Jordan( Chris helped with the site design and development. I think he’s a great guy (based on his facebook page and tweets).

Karen Yaeger ( at Open Sky Video. Your video tips and ideas were extremely helpful.

Men with Pens ( I just wanted a simple site with simple copy. You would not believe the stuckness and inertia I experienced in trying to generate simple, clear copy. Men with Pens got it done.

Pamela Slim (, great coach, great inspiration. I know it’s unrealistic to put the perfect brand in place before you have one client but I still want t0.

It takes a village to launch a website.

There’s only one more thing on the to do list…Get Clients…Yikes!

You’re young enough to be my son but you are a great inspiration to me.
Keep doing what you do!

Congrats to you!!! I read about your launch in Pam Slim’s email. You will do great! Your warm and generous spirit totally blazes through.

Good luck,

Hi Maura,
I was really trying to communicate my passion and how important I think this work is.
