I have built my career empowering entrepreneurs and marketing professionals to utilize the power of Instagram to get tangible business results.
My entrepreneurial journey
starts 30 years ago…
Since my first business hit 7 figures in sales at the age of 22...I have spent my career following trends which have been driven by my passion for entrepreneurship. I've opened more businesses than I can count on one hand to allow me to prioritize what matters most - my family.
And while my resume includes everything from children’s art classes to selling $5,000 worth of products a minute on QVC, it wasn’t until I became the Instagram expert that I found the true freedom, flexibility, and purpose that I didn’t even know I was after.
Before I started teaching online, I had a retail shop, SueB.Do. While a success at face value - the schedule was nothing short of a constant marathon. I spent hours a week merchandising the store, taking inventory and ordering stock. In my ‘free time’ I would work 14 hours days driving to local towns at sunrise and setting up ‘pop-up’ tents at local craft fairs. I was doing 'pop-ups' for my store LONG before it was something trendy for brands big cities...I'm looking at you All Birds!
I THOUGHT I had freedom because I was working for myself. And I THOUGHT I had flexibility because I set the schedule. But in reality, I was probably working far too many hours for the income I was bringing in...and a slave to a minivan full of beach tunics and bracelets that needed to be sold before the New England leaves changed in the fall.
That was 7 years ago,
but it feels like yesterday.
TODAY I'M KNOWN AS...
I’m a leader in the Instagram marketing field, having developed the most comprehensive online Instagram course, Ready Set Gram.
As a highly sought after business coach, I’ve traveled the world speaking, inspiring, and sharing my knowledge and extensive experience in social media marketing, including producing popular courses on CreativeLive, at universities, and professional conferences like Social Media Marketing World 2014-2019 and other prominent stages.
I use my knack for sales and marketing to teach Instagram and online business strategies that have helped gain my students' thousands of followers and generate revenue that supports families across the globe.
I’m known for believing in you before you believe in yourself, no bullshit feedback that helps you make your dreams happen, a solid brilliant team of women who help me reach more people and make a difference, and for a tight-knit online community of rockstar entrepreneurs that champion each other every day. My community may be the thing I am most proud to have created.
I’m pretty sure I can picture where you are right now
(because I’ve been there before)...
Most of your work days probably feel like you're running on a hamster wheel...
I want to help get your life back.
To help you feel present and proud, and consistently end your week on a high note. (hopefully with a cucumber mojito in hand or a foot massage on the calendar for Saturday, right?)
Instead of grinding day in and day out
don’t you wish you could...
Well, it may be hard to believe, but that’s what Instagram and online marketing has given me.
500 million Instagram users log into the platform every single day.
60% of Instagram users seek out and discover new products on Instagram.
75% of users take action, like visiting a website or adding a product to a shopping cart.
I am almost 100% certain that your community is on Instagram, just waiting for you to post and engage with them.
So, are you ready to build a life and business you are proud of, and make an impact doing what you love?
I meet motivated entrepreneurs ALL THE TIME with the best intentions - that have a passion for their product or service...but are at a loss when trying to understand the tools necessary to make their dream a reality.
There is opportunity Instagram and it’s not too late, so let's get started!
I like to say that "Instagram is a village" with related BUT varying neighborhoods aka all of the different areas you can participate in when you are in the Instagram app. Whether you are an Instagram beginner or someone who frequents all 4 neighborhoods - there is always something new to learn to up-level your strategy.
Pick a neighborhood below to get step by step instruction to grow your followers and get conversions - no matter where you are currently focused on developing your Instagram account.
