I was so passionate about the farm but I was tired of working so hard for every sale. I wanted to stop going out and networking, answering every question over the phone, and selling my butt off.
I knew that if I wanted more freedom in my life, I needed a website that could attract clients online and sell my products for me — both literally (through e-commerce) and psychologically (through strong branding and marketing).
And even though I spent years in IT, working at a help desk for a local hospital group, creating a functional website was a completely new realm for me.
Wordpress was daunting. I felt lost every time I logged in to the back-end, afraid I was one click away from total website destruction.
So I researched. I took web design courses. I luckily had smart IT friends who I could ask for help when I got stuck (which I did...a lot.)
And I eventually created a website that I was thrilled with.
After we launched that website, not only were people finding my business online (which was amazing)...
Not only did I stop wasting time talking to potential clients because the website made people comfortable enough to buy right away (even more amazing)...
Not only did we start selling out four months before our harvest — we literally can’t grow trees fast enough to keep up with demand!...
But something else happened that I never expected…
I started getting messages from business owners saying they loved my website and asking if I could help them with theirs.
During my time in IT, I was constantly helping people work through their tech challenges. I love making the overwhelming simple! So I jumped at the chance to work with other business owners to build stand-out websites that showcase their businesses and act as client magnets.
That’s how Resilience Digital was born. Over the past few years, I’ve helped clients create custom websites so they can do things like:
Triple their business in one year
Show up on the first page of Google
Follow-up with visitors automatically
...All by harnessing the power of a strong website.
If you’re a female business owner who wants to attract clients effortlessly and elevate your reputation with a beautiful, easy-to-use website, I’m so glad you’re here, friend. ☺ We’re gonna have fun together.
I’m a New Englander through and through, who’s totally reminiscent of Jo March from Little Women. Doting on my family, hanging out at home, and reading.
I create my own knitting patterns just because. I knit quite often, even in church. (Yes, I do get funny looks sometimes, but who cares?)
My hubby is my rock, my “you can do this”, and the handsomest guy I know. 23 years, 3 kids, and oodles of fruit trees keep us grounded, together.
Our family owns a little fruit tree nursery, Winter Cove Farm. We’re way beyond organic and believe that it’s the future of our planet. We also spend a lot of time talking about trees and Hubby and I teach classes about how to raise healthy, organic fruit in your backyard.
I love all of the above...but I LOVE my coffee. It’s even more than love. Locally-roasted, extra-strong beans are more precious than gold in my house. There is NO running out.
My faith in Jesus is the foundation to all that I do. The grace His love provides keeps my feet on the path of being there for others.
