I help you launch and build
online businesses you love.

WHO I AM + WHAT I DO:

I’m Liz Theresa. I help entrepreneurs like you launch and build online businesses you love in two ways: (1) by creating websites that reflect the YOU of your business and (2) by mapping marketing plans that actually work.

I’m from the Boston area (go Red Sox!) and my clients are totally the kinds of people I’d hang with at Starbucks talking about anything for hours over a couple of grande, iced nonfat chai lattes. And, if you’re local, we probably actually do this.

YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE…

  • Not being taken seriously – because you either don’t have a website or you hate the one you have. This is called Website Shame. And it sucks.
  • So close to your dreams you can taste them. Picture your business ideas are an ice cream cone on a hot day. You know it’s going to be AWESOME, but you don’t know where to start. And the longer you wait, the worse you feel, because that ice cream is melting. It feels like your dream is slipping through your fingers and if you don’t do it now, you might never do it.
  • Meant for MORE in this life than morning traffic, buttoned shirts, punching clocks, your office chair, that desk, and those piles of paper. And if you’ve read this far, you are. I promise. You are.
  • Five minutes from throwing your Macbook out the window because you tried to DIY your own website. The process is as frustrating as that relentless itch in the middle of your back. WHY CAN’T I REACH THAT?!
  • Waiting for your life to happen. Not moving forward may be setting you back in other areas of your life too! Relationships, your health, and so on. You think that maybe if you felt proud of your work, the rest might fall into place. (And BTW – you’re totally right. It does!)
  • Totally stuck because you have no sales – because you don’t have your business foundation figured out yet, marketing materials, or your website.

MY STORY:

When I was little, I had no idea I’d be doing what I do now. Little Liz wouldn’t have believed me if I told her what lay ahead. She’d probably think I was speaking in tongues if I started saying words like podcast, blog, or YouTube.

Back then, I’d wanted to be an actress on Days of Our Lives when I grew up. Yes, really. That was what I thought my life was building out to. I even tried my hand working in the entertainment business but absolutely hated how rotten all the people were. I’m a total Sagittarius which means I have no B.S. tolerance. I quickly learned drama, in more ways than one, was not for me.

When I finished undergrad, I thought, “Hey. Why not go get a Master’s degree while I figure this out?” I went on to study English at Bridgewater State University. A little context for you: Twitter had only launched the February of that same year. So, it was during my two-year graduate studies program that I discovered the wild (and often ridiculous) world of online marketing. My days evolved from spending evenings at theatre rehearsals and nights writing English papers to pouring over Internet Marketing for Dummies and reading absolutely everything MarketingProfs.com had to say.

It wasn’t until I completed my MA degree that I started offering freelance web services to small businesses and entrepreneurs. That was also when I had my first AHA moment.

Any and ALL marketing you do for your business is only as effective as where you send the traffic. AKA: your website.

That was when I figured out that my little web design hobby (yes, hobby) was the real answer to helping my clients truly become the best they could be.

WHY I DO IT:

Full disclosure: the absolute BEST part of my job is the vast impact I have on the world! Many of my clients are service-oriented people just like me. Coaches, experts, authors, consultants. Because I’m the one helping them launch and build their businesses means I am actually helping them help more people. What a remarkably beautiful thing!
