Who is Justin
My career has focused on working with experts to create products that achieve their vision and goals. My current goal is to use my technology background, marketing training and strategies, and creative insights to support LGBTQ+ leaders provide more value to their customers, solve problems for people and continue making a positive impact in the world. 

Have you ever thought: "I'm doing all the things, but its not working for me... "

Are people visiting your website and profile, but they aren't booking a call?
Are you posting consistently on social media, but getting little, if any, engagement?
Are you overwhelmed trying different strategies, but none of them are helping you stand out?
Are you tired of struggling to make a meaningful impact and more revenue from your business?

Marketing is a new skill, and many business owners don't have time to 
learn it all, while continuing to serve their clients at a high level.

It's frustrating when you pour your heart and soul into your business, only to see lackluster results. You know you have something valuable to offer, but it feels like your message is getting lost in the digital abyss. Your dream of building a thriving, purpose-driven business seems out of reach, and you wonder if you'll ever make the impact you've always envisioned....

Our Approach Helps You Build Pride In Key Areas

Many LGBTQ+ individuals have been told that we aren't enough, or that we are doing too much, and we need to just "fit in". So when it comes time to approach our businesses, we aren't sure how best to move forward. I believe the best way to market is to know ourselves deeply, and then be ourself and choose the strategies, frameworks and tactics that align with who we already are. That's where the fun begins, and I hope to support you on that journey.

Why am I focusing on the LGBTQ+ community ?

We've made much progress as a community, but in the US, and around the world, different political leaders and examples, courts and others are making decisions that affect the rights and lives of Queer people and our communities, and often... going backwards. 

If we have learned anything during this pandemic, it's that life is too short to not make the most of everyday. Our businesses provide value to, and for, our communities, and each of us need to bring more of ourselves into our business. We need to grow our businesses so that we can take care of our own and be more generous in our communities. 

Over the last few years, I've completed a few entrepreneurship and marketing programs and most leaders aren't LGBTQ+, affirming nor inclusive. In my daily life, I have met many smart Queer entrepreneurs with awesome ideas, but no marketing strategy. I want to help our Queer community continue to grow, serve and make our communities better.

About Justin

In 2021, I was looking for ways to become an entrepreneur and I joined something called the "Movement Maker" challenge. I was unsure of what it was about, but I wanted to make an impact as I thought about starting a business. Over the course of the 5 days... a light-switched on. And I finally saw how my professional and LGBTQ+ journeys could connect. There was a path to connect my software skills with my heart to serve the LGBTQ+ community. 
Since coming out,  I've heard both the happy and heart-wrenching stories in our community, and I've seen many non-profits and businesses working to help members under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. I envisioned Queer entrepreneurs leveraging marketing strategies and technical solutions as pillars to make more impact, generate more revenue, AND provide transformation in the process.
