Social media can be really intimidating.

It doesn’t come with a handbook and half the time you wonder ‘should I be posting this?’ while the other half is spent wondering ‘is anyone actually listening/reading/seeing/watching this?'

But I don’t have to tell you that social media is here to stay.

It’s the easiest, fastest and cheapest way to your customer base. So we have two choices, either we deal with it head on or we keep throwing posts out there hoping for the best.

That is my guiding philosophy and that’s what I apply to every service I offer. I also work with you, where you’re at and where you want to go. I’ll never drag you kicking and screaming to do something that you don’t want to do.

I will however give you my honest opinion which is backed by nine years of working in communications. From there, we’ll keep you on the edge of feeling comfortable with what you’re doing and feeling like you’re striving toward what you want to achieve.

"Renée is a bright light of the universe who loves to laugh. She loves the finer, fancy things in life and no longer has time to give one single fuck about that fact. She is driven to be her own woman creating financial independence with her intellect and through flowing her heart. Her client's benefit from her grounded, intellectual approach in developing heartfelt, light filled social media strategies."

"I so enjoyed taking Renée's social media class for small businesses. It was exactly what I needed to give me a better sense of what the landscape of social media is all about and how to use it to support my business goals."

Debra A

"You did a fantastic job on this course, thank you so much! I absolutely love your energy, humor and enthusiasm for the topics you taught. I learned a lot on how I can integrate my new business into social media and will be referring back to my notes a lot as I launch."

I don’t know who said it first – but hope is not a plan! I like a plan. To be precise, I like a strategy, a plan and a schedule, and always in that order!
