The Overwhelm

One business, two passions, three ways to showcase them; two social media platforms I don't know how to use effectively; marketing; networking; "please come to my event, it's free" (begging); event organizing - why do small spaces cost such large amounts of money? Finding (paying for) the right words to convince people I really do … Continue reading The Overwhelm
