Hello everyone and welcome to the Social Media Superstar Academy! I am so grateful and happy that you chose to check the site out and see what it’s all about.
First off, I wanted to give you some background on why Social Media Superstar Academy was created. Years ago I started working for several clients that asked me to help them with their websites, blogs, social media accounts, and products. It all seemed innocent enough and not something that would lead to anything out of the ordinary. I mean, after all, they were just clients asking me to do another job, right? WRONG!!
From this experience came lots of knowledge that I didn’t know I needed but what was even more eye-opening was the fact that there were millions of people out there trying to run their small businesses and non-profits who needed this information too. The more people asked me what I did for a living and I told them, the more people were saying “I need you! Can you help me too?” And, of course, without hesitancy I would step in to save the day. However, after awhile two things became very apparent to me.
The first thing that I realized was that there were a LOT of people who needed to have a social media presence for their small business or non-profit but they either had no clue what to do or no time to actually search for the answers and do it themselves.
The second thing that became apparent to me was that I didn’t have enough time in the day to individually help every single one of those people who needed it. At least in the one-on-one capacity that I was doing at the time.
That’s when one of my artist friends, who has a home-based business selling her handmade jewelry, said to me that she would love it if there were a step-by-step guidebook or course that could help her learn how to create, maintain, and promote her social media sites for her business. It seemed like a quick comment between two friends at the time but the seed she planted began to grow. It eventually sprouted and grew into the book “Making Your Business A Social Media Superstar: The Step-By-Step Guide To Creating, Maintaining, and Promoting Your Online Presence”
And, as is the natural course of things, this website was born as an additional resource to the book. Currently, as you can see, the site is small but it will grow as we all grow together. This site is intended to be a continuation of the book in order to further address the many things simple and more advanced that I just couldn’t fit in the original book. There will be regular blogs that will address YOUR questions and challenges as well as how-to videos, discussions, and so much more.

I can’t wait to hear from all of you and help you and your business or non-profit achieve your goals and beyond!
All the Best,
