Hi I’m Lisa, (also known affectionately as the Website Wonder Woman).
I am a WordPress whizz who loves working with ambitious and awesome female entrepreneurs’. I will bring your business alive in the online world and allow your vision to become a reality, I allow you to go beyond the ordinary….
I remember what it felt like….
When I started my events business in 2008 and was overflowing with passion and enthusiasm; I had so many ideas and goals, I felt unstoppable. I quickly fell back down to earth like a ton of bricks when I became frustrated and overwhelmed with the vast amount of technical jargon and restrictions I faced when trying to get my website launched.
I was so disheartened…
I knew the power of a professional looking website; most of my customers were online I needed to reach them. I must admit I am quite the perfectionist and I like to have everything “just right,” I definitely didn’t want my business to look cheap or tacky because of a badly designed website. When I looked for website designers online I was disheartened, I didn’t have thousands of pounds to invest and I hated the thought of having to sacrifice quality.
So I set about trying to do it myself, I tried out template and drag and drop website builders but I couldn’t get it looking right. It just wouldn’t do what I wanted it to do and look exactly like I wanted it to look. I eventually had to admit defeat and hired a web designer to create my online masterpiece. I hoped that getting a professional involved would mean my website would finally reflect me and my business and I would see my vision come alive.
Unfortunately I didn’t get what I expected. Sure the website looked quite good but I felt completely detached from it, as if it belonged to someone else. There were features I had asked for, which apparently ‘weren’t possible’ and every time I wanted to make a change or add something, I had to wait for it to be approved and done by someone else. I was completely disempowered by the whole process.
It was time to take control…
This experience made me determined to learn how to create my own websites, I resolved to break through the technical jargon and find a simpler way. I took a course in WordPress and suddenly it all clicked into place. It was as if the veil had been lifted. I had found a new passion and I threw myself into the challenge.
This was 8 years ago and I haven’t stopped learning since. The online world evolves very quickly and once I had the bug I wasn’t going to get left behind again.
I started designing websites for friends and family, it was more of a hobby back then and I was grateful of the opportunity to practice but soon I was getting referrals and people were coming to me from outside my network. To my amazement a new business was organically growing.
