Watching Small Businesses Grow Makes Me Happy
My husband Bob is a serial entrepreneur. Together we have taken risks and experienced the ups and downs of owning a business. We’ve celebrated many successes and weathered plenty of disappointments.
For 18 years, I’ve had an amazing role model and mentor living right under my roof. And it has been the best education of my life. (Going back to school for my marketing MBA is a close second!)
Growing up in a house with four siblings, Bob learned early on that everyone in the family had to pitch in and help out. He worked the local newspaper route and became the youngest pizza maker at our hometown pizzeria. He helped his father sell Christmas trees to earn extra money during the holidays, and then started his own business cutting lawns. This led to his first “real” entrepreneurial venture as a landscape contractor.
That was the beginning of Bob’s love affair with running his own business, and the realization that it gave him control of his destiny. Experiencing Bob’s tumultuous ride first-hand inspired me to start my own business. It instilled in me the importance of doing work I love. And I love seeing small businesses succeed.
As the owner of Hype Marketing, I don’t just watch my clients grow – I experience the joy of partnering in their success by supporting them with smart marketing. A sole proprietor myself, I understand the thinking, planning, effort and energy that go into starting and building a business. And how challenging it is do it on your own. I also know how rewarding and exhilarating it can be when all of that hard work pays off.
It is an honor and a privilege to be part of my client’s success stories. And I’d be happy to be part of yours. Call me if you have a burning question about your marketing – or if you just need a little support. The phone lines are open…
