“The Chef is a standout amongst mentors.

She teaches you to fish. She shares generously, offers wisdom, insight and actionable plans to help you reach your goals. Don’t know how to identify goals that will work for you? There’s guidance for that too. Tea, a gifted wordsmith, connects and creates supportive communities.

“Tea’s helped me with my message…

by giving me solid guidelines and action items to get stuff done. She is not for the faint at heart and cracks a mean whip but it the most authentic person I know. Looking to hone your marketing efforts, the Chef is your gal.

“Tea’s helped me to think differently…

— on a daily basis — about who my target clients are and the best way to communicate with them. That’s huge! Tea’s advice is current and savvy and you know you are on the cutting edge when working with her.

“Tea is amazingly generous and smart.

It’s really important to find someone who’s got a lot of experience, knows the ropes, and is still open and growing her/himself. And I LOVE the tough love: do the work or you’re out. You know, I’ve bought a lot of programs and read and listened to and watched endless webinars and …. now I’m doing the work. That makes all the difference.

Locally-based businesses (as opposed to multi-national corporations) are the life blood of any community. And people are beginning to understand the importance of nurturing local economies. But there are still a few hold outs. While it is clearly to our collective benefit to support local businesses, many people still patronize national chains. And the reasons don't all have to do with pricing. If you are a small, locally-owned business trying to compete with the big guys, you might want to consider the following parable.

How to Eat Your (Marketing) Artichoke

When you're a solopreneur or the owner of a very small business, it can seem almost impossible to find the time to get it all done.
