About Bev Young

Knowledge, experience, and a bit of the magic fairy dust called intuition ~ that's what gives me the inspiration and drive to help you succeed online. Every business is quite different. You have a unique value you offer your clients. You have a unique perspective on your industry. There is something you believe in that you wish to share. I have a knack for tapping into those things quickly and coming at you with marketing ideas -- for your website, your social media marketing or even your offline marketing -- that are unique to those special qualities of yours, and unique to your clients and customers.

“All of us need to be in touch with a mysterious, tantalizing source of inspiration that teases our sense of wonder and goads us on to life’s next adventure.” ― Rob Brezsny

My Story

When I realized I couldn’t handle a 9 to 5 job, I was devastated.
I dreamed all my life of a secure job, like my parents told me was mandatory for happiness, for my future.  A secure job that paid reasonably well.  Preferably with the government. 

I got the next best thing; a job with a government agency.  Regular hours, vacation time, indexed pension!  And I was happy.  For a while…until I reluctantly came to the conclusion that I was just not cut out to ride the 7 a.m. train every day and leave on the 5 p.m. train every day.  Damn it.  It was a dream job, how hard could it be?  Just get up and go and then come home.  What could be easier?  What was wrong with me? What’s the problem??

In a nutshell, the bugaboo was a little thing called the 8 hours in between going and coming each day.  Instead of proofreading product spec sheets, I found myself checking the source code of websites trying to figure out “how they did that”.  And instead of editing company user manuals, I was stealthily doing homework assignments from my Photoshop course.

But I didn’t jump into my own business right away.  I went into another job, this one in the software industry.  I didn’t even know what that was.  I didn’t know what software was!  

My intention was to hang out and learn about software (more than the definition) for a while and then go out on my own.  But as the geek gods would have it, I got laid off.  Now the code met the road.  Regular jobs were hard to come by.  Panic attacks started creeping into my room at night and staying for long hours.  My home computer called loudly.

Some have independence in their bones, and others have it thrust upon them.  I guess I’m a bit of both.  Whichever way fate got you into this, we both know it’s a big job to get started, especially online.
But get started you must, and in my opinion a website is the ideal place to start.  It’s where you declare yourself, your message, and your intention.  And where we put it all on the line.

My goal is to help you translate your intention into a website and online presence that you feel pride, ownership, and confidence in. And make money from.
I help you use marketing principles and technology to get your business identity out there and working for you in the magical way only the internet knows how to do.

What you need to know about me...
1)      I’ve been told all my life I’m a good listener.  Just as well, because how else am I going to hear who you are and how your business should be portrayed in the world to do the most good for you?
2)     I have a combination of learned and innate skills that we can both take advantage of if we work together.  I have the tech stuff nailed (software is code, woohoo!), and I love creating, whether it’s graphics, copy or a website architecture.
3)      I desperately want to see you succeed.  I love witnessing your transformation – new-found confidence in what you know and feel about your business, your brand established and out there, your ability to get results with your online presence.

There’s a lot of power in this marketing thing. If you’re looking for someone who can lead you and guide you to an online marketing goal that makes sense, then you’ve come to the right place.
