Everyone needs a website.I am convinced that everyone needs an online presence. Whether you are branding yourself as an authority in your field, creating a business that can provide you a passive, retirement income or introducing your brick and mortar business to the world, you need a website and audience.It is not who you know.

I work with people in transition. School to work. Mid-Career changes and job to retirement. Mid-Career changes may be a purposeful change or simply the result of getting fired., In today's economy the old "climb the corporate ladder" may not work and the only way out of a dead end job is a more challenging job.There are many ways the transition may occur. Point is it happens and I believe everyone, even people who love their jobs, need to have a business of their own ready to scale up at a mome

Know your audience. We've all read here at WA how important it is to describe your audience as a single person and then write your blog posts to that imaginary individual. When you know your reader, you know how to slant and promote your book, article or website and how you must promte it. Here are some things to consider when writing your readers bio:What gender?Age?What relationships does s/he have?Do s/he have kids?(how old?)No kids?What work does s/he do?Where does s/he live?What does s/he
