Because every website needs GREAT copy to do it justice
Alexandra Franzen – She calls herself a Promotional Wordsmith and Personal Scribe. Her Velocity Sessions are a full-day, high-impact, 1-on-1 storytelling and self-promotion immersion, with proven results. I’ve used many of her exercises to craft my own website copy. Jump on her waitlist now if you love her. She books up quick!
Sarah Von Bargen – Sarah can help you create cleverly-crafted web copy that will show people who you are and what you can do. Or you can work with her through her signature Solution Sessions - a one-day, one-on-one workshop, where, together, you’ll create a tailor-fit, totally-doable, instantly-implementable plan for your internet domination.
Ashley Ambirdge – Ashley’s prime service, the One Night Stand is an intense, explosive, incandescent experience for those of you who need a little juicy, throw ‘em-against-the-wall seduction with your web copy….to really rev up sales + make your business GET NOTICED. I’ve purchased a number of her products, and I can tell you – she’s worth EVERY penny!
Because there is always something new to learn
Marie Forleo – From the first time I landed on her page and watched my first video, I’ve fallen fast in love. This girl has the best marketing and business advice that you could ask for. Plus, it’s all in video, so if you hate to read, this is your place to be to ‘create a business and live you love’ (as she would say).
Danielle LaPorte – Need some fun motivation? Danielle is your go-to-girl for uplifting and inspiring quotes, articles and stories. Her tell-it-like-it-is attitude had me captured right away.
April Bowles-Olin – Do you have a product to promote or need some fun marketing ideas for your business? Check out her videos. The Wednesday Wisdom posts are my favorite. Plus, her outtakes are pretty fun!

Hosting & Domains
HostGator – preferred by many for it’s speed and customer service. It’s extremely easy to set up WordPress using Hostgator.
GoDaddy – I buy most of my domains through them.
