Since I work for myself I have some freedom and flexibility when it comes to choosing my clients and projects. I have recently become involved with several great small business owners and entrepreneurs. I thought I might share some of their information here.
- I met Cheri Britton when I answered a Craigslist ad for a part time marketing project. Since that time I've had the pleasure of working with her on a social media plan for her website. We're just starting to put that plan into action so it may be a while before we see the returns, but I am very happy with where we're starting. Cheri is a motivational speaker and business coach and I can see why people hire her - she is great at what she does. It is great to get connected to the Asheville business community through someone so dynamic and fun.
- Because of Cheri, I was introduced to Marianne Kilkenny who is the founder of Women for Living in Community. Her site, and mission, is about connecting women interested in building communities as they age. She promotes co-housing and shared housing and is great at forging these connections. The idea of building communities as we age is very interesting to me. As a NotMom, I am already thinking about what my life will look like as I reach my 60s, 70s, and even 80s. Marianne provides some great resources for women not only here in Asheville but anywhere in the country.
- I've also recently launched a project with three of the top names in the tiny house community: Steven Harrell, Ryan Mitchell, and Andrew Odom. Because all four of us live in North Carolina we decided to join forces and create a website to promote tiny house living in our state. Tiny House NC is just beginning but as we continue to grow we plan to offer consultations, speaking engagements, connections to builders, and a place to share stories and ideas about tiny houses in North Carolina.
