A network of 20 stylized people, with different skin tones, hair styles and shirt colours, each in their own brightly coloured circle.
I'm inviting you, my network, to help me tell the story of what it feels like to work with me.

​A website is a wonderful place to share stories. As a solopreneur, my website should tell my story, while also sharing the success stories of people I work with.

After almost 10 years in business, I’m doubling down, and investing time, money and energy in clarifying what services I offer through Empowered Path Inc.

Part of the website transformation, with a spring makeover courtesy of Build Marketing, includes using newer technology to make all parts of my website as accessible as possible. Both in terms of accessibility and in terms of what devices it works on. 

My current website doesn’t perform well on mobile devices, be they phones or tablets. For example, its almost impossible to sign up for my newsletter from a mobile device!

One of the improvements to the Empowered Path Inc. website is to include pictures of me, and a few colleagues, instead of relying on images from the many fabulous free content sites that I’ve relied on so far.

Last Sunday, JL Morgan, a talented professional photographer in my community, did a photo shoot with me at one of my favourite places for in person meetings, the County Emporium, in Carrying Place, Ontario. (Learn more about JL and her business)

Kate, the owner of The County Emporium, graciously allowed us to take photos around the property and inside the spacious meeting room. Afterwards we enjoyed a few cups of tea and a visit. 

The County Emporium is a welcoming space for people of all ages and genders. There’s even a small play space set up in the main shop, so young children can play while their parents and caregivers browse the products which includes clothing from swim suits to winter coats, and a variety of locally produced and prepared foods and beverages.

Back to the photo shoot, JL shared a few gorgeous previews of the story she’s creating about me and my life on Instagram, and I realized that I hadn’t posted a blog in a few weeks.  I figured I’d better write something and post it to let you all know what’s happening!

One of the best ways to get an idea about whether or not you’d like to work with someone is to get to know them. My goal for the new website is to share what it’s like to work with me, as your Thought Partner; how I can help you achieve your goals to find or create your ideal job, and how I can help organizations rethink what they can do to create more Inclusive Diverse Equitable Accessible Learning (IDEAL) workplaces.

I’m gathering more testimonials to help colour in the picture of what it feels like to work with me. If we’ve collaborated on a project, or I’ve helped you achieve your professional or business goals, I’d love to feature your thoughts on what it feels like to work with me. I also welcome you sharing concrete results that you’ve achieved since we collaborated!
