Vancouver Marketing Coach & Consulting

My Story For Marketing Startup Secrets  

I grew up in a multi-generational business family. I’ve witnessed the ups and downs of entrepreneurism in my childhood and teens and became risk-adversed when I reached adulthood. Little did I know not taking risks would be even riskier after many jobs and contracts.

I was mid-career, looking to start an ethical business after receiving a letter of termination from my job in 2015. Although my former boss who is a successful business family advisor and angel investor helped me get contracts, these ended in 2016.

I learned to hustle with contract work in Vancouver, a very expensive city. I also searched everywhere for a marketing coach and consulting solution… And I found it! It is quite different from marketing I had done. I had to change my mindset for starting and growing an online business…


Here’s Why I Started An Online Marketing Business

I’ve always been creative so I started The Art Party with a Facebook Fan Page and Facebook Group. It grew to over 1,000 email contacts locally. We produced a local food & networking event in 2018, plus 3 sold-out workshops in 2017. However, these events were labour-intensive and limited in space. Therefore, I had to refocus…

One of themes of The Art Party is “Buy Local to Support Local Art”, working with local small businesses along Main Street, Vancouver. We started this social networking community in 2010 in my art studio with a group of artists, art consultants and art collectors who are successful entrepreneurs. The Art Party grew to over 10,000 social media contacts locally. It’s taken many years for me to come up with a solution – to help local business owners get on Google Map and other online promotions, to strengthen our local community.

What’s next:

I’ve reached Google Local Guide Level 5 – providing photos and reviews of local businesses, starting in East Vancouver! The appreciation from local business owners has been uplifting and I’m making a real impact in my community. I posted my first Google Local Guide Meetup. Google founders are real philanthropists and they want to help the “little guy”, not just big advertisers with their Google Local Guide program. This helps position me to provide local marketing services to small business owners.
