We are your helpful chicks, here to help you navigate through the choppy waters of creating a website and developing your on-line business.
Kathy and I met through a training program and soon became fast friends. We share a love of learning and helping.
When I started my training, I knew nothing about web design or Word Press but I had a passion to learn and start my own blog.
Now, not only do I run a few websites of my own, I also support and maintain websites for local businesses.
I love discovering new ways to accomplish my goals on my websites and sharing that knowledge with others. My approach to teaching is simplistic and easy for anyone to follow, even if you have never seen a dashboard (except maybe in your car!).
Some interesting facts about me:
I was born in Marengo, IA in 1972.
I have moved 22 times in 42 years.
I have been to 26 of our 50 states.
I am a stellar researcher. If it’s online, I will find it.
I am very practical and pragmatic. I can handle anything life throws at me.
I worked in Corrections for ten years, all maximum security male prisons.
I love caramel, especially in ice cream or chocolate.
I’m an expert packer (see 2nd item above).

I love working on websites!

I met Angela through an on-line marketing program. We soon discovered we have a lot in common, not least of which is our enthusiasm for helping people achieve their goals.
My love of computing comes from my Dad, and my first computer was an Amstrad (no colour screen). I moved onto an Acorn with the RISK OS and from there to Windows based pcs.
This was the time discovered I had a knack for navigating around new software and diagnosing problems, so decided to develop these skills by going to college.
I aced the course in Computing/technical support and I’ve been working with hardware and software problems ever since!
I started my online business out of necessity after my husband died and wish I’d done it years ago. There’s nothing like choosing your own hours and being able to travel and still work, my laptop comes everywhere with me!

Hobbies as well as sewing are knitting (and all things crafty), reading, swimming, gardening, baking/cooking and walking my dogs.
I hate ironing!
My coffee has to be strong and black, and of good quality, Old Brown Java is my favourite.
