Hi there! I’m Julia.
A city girl with a
I was born in the valley of Los Angeles and raised in the heart of Texas. I once lived on the island of St. Thomas waaaaay before it was cool to live on the island of St. Thomas.
I graduated from the only university (at the time) in the US that offered a rodeo scholarship.
And not long after graduation I landed a job at a dream corporation, worked my way up to a big deal position…and panicked.
“Is this all there is?”
“It doesn’t feel like I’m helping anyone.”
“I want to work with people I love every day.”
“I need more than an hour for lunch.” 😬
I got my ducks in a row, signed on one client, and wrote a resignation letter.
It was the
Many celebrations, almost as many meltdowns, and all the books and courses you can shake a stick at later…
And here I am. I’ve won some, lost even more. Had the best clients anyone could wish for and had to fire a few.
When I started this journey I had no idea what an “online guru” was. I’d never heard of Amy Porterfield or Marie Forleo.
I tried to run my business like a business (read: corporation) because it was the only experience I had. I had literally been with the same company my entire adult career. I had a few friends that were freelancers but their clients were all local. Helping people in the digital sphere was a
But once I discovered it, I was hooked.
“You mean I can help people everywhere? I can take calls in my pajamas? I can field guide from my living room?” I’m in.
I’m not an ad agency, per se. Or a social media manager. I teach you what you need to know to run and grow a business. What you need to know to avoid overwhelm and frustration and actually reach your goals.
We do it together. If I tell you what to do (or do it all for you) and then one day I get hit by a bus, your business will tank. But if I teach you what to do, that bus thing will hardly be a blip on the radar for your business.
The one thing I did bring with me from the corporate world: Foundations, confirmations, and just the right amount of perfectionism for every project. I’m the Goldilocks of perfection. Not too much, not too little. It’s just right!
Everything long-lasting gets built on a solid foundation. I help people develop that foundation and grow from there. It’s how we build a brand, not just a business.
It’s not the fastest route, but it’s the most effective route. Before you can bake a complicated Gâteau Basque, you must be able to bake a simple brownie. Once you have that down, you can put those delicious brownie skills to mad use.
It wasn’t all smooth sailing and cork popping….
I stumbled. I tripped. I zigzagged with this project and then the next. I followed this guru and then got hooked by another one. I sunk tons of money and time into lots of courses, books, and webinars.
Not all bad, mind you—there are some out there that are quite worthy. But there’s nothing like a real person offering you real, been-there-done-that guidance, hand-holding, and butt-kicking.
Someone to give you a good talkin’ too when you need it most. The person least likely to blow smoke up your skirt.
I’m here to be that person for you.
But I’m not asking you to marry me on the first date.
This is a big relationship to jump into. I get it. So I created a way to dip your toe in. Kick the tires. Check for malfunctions.
It’s called Noteworthy. It’s a printed and hand-delivered monthly memo about marketing skills and mindset for business.
One of the biggest reasons I created it: to offer something really helpful at a price everyone can afford. It’s only fair to do business this way.
But even before that commitment, you should get signed up for emails. They’re free and they always have helpful info in them. You can ask my loyal readers. All 5 of them will tell you so. 😜
I hope you will connect so we can keep in touch. I really want to learn more about you. Our story together is just beginning.
Always behind you 1,000%-
