Getting your business set up for success doesn’t have to be hard

All you need is a sidekick!

Get all the Technical & Design help you need

I know you’re amazing at what you do…

But, I bet you didn’t start your online business to become a late-night student.

Spending hours on Google or YouTube trying to figure out how to implement the strategy recommended by your favourite marketing guru.

This is just not how you want to spend your time!

Wouldn’t it be great to hand it over to someone else to do instead?

And that’s where I come in!

I’m here to help you by handling all the tech and design stuff you’d prefer not to do yourself.

Think of me as your secret weapon to make it all as easy and stress-free as possible!

My dream is to help you…


Implement all those fantastic ideas you get while you’re in the shower


Escape the tech overwhelm and get it done with ease


Have something you’re proud to share with the world

You have big hairy & audacious goals for your business and all you need is a little help getting things set up.
