Unicorns DO EXIST
Small business owners are looking for well-rounded, digital marketing-savvy teammates who can help them grow and manage their business in the online space.
These owners need extra help from a dependable independent contractor they can trust, who can be resourceful, who can get things done and who has the business knowledge and tech skills.
I can teach you the marketing tech skills and tactics in the Unicorn Digital Marketing Assistant School.
I'm the only one in the online world who trains students with a breadth of online business understanding, mechanical skills and with tech tools in their pocket. (If unicorns had pockets)

Four otherworldy ways to sharpen your unicorn skills:
the Digital Marketing Workgroup
for serious freelancers who have the skills and want to build their network
The workgroup is a membership community for serious freelancers, digital marketers, virtual assistants, and digital service providers who have hard skills in digital marketing and are working successfully with clients.
Group members receive advanced monthly trainings inside a private resource library. These trainings teach digital marketing implementation work and how to run a profitable freelance business.
This small tight-knit community holds networking events and virtual happy hours, and supports each other with questions, feedback, job referrals, tech updates, pricing help and troubleshooting. Our intention is to build a safe non-competitive community in the digital space where it can be lonely, we're expected to know everything and stay up to date at all times and deal with uncomfortable client situations, and celebrate our wins together.
I also share job leads from my personal network and my site hireaunicorn.com.
the Quickstart to Facebook Community Management
for go-getters who want to get their foot in the online door with an all-encompassing team role
A 2-hour course that produces Facebook Community Managers who can implement digital marketing strategies, tactics and tech skills inside online business owners' free and paid Facebook Groups.
This is a self-paced 2-hour DIY course designed to teach a virtual assistant everything they need to know about structuring, managing, and engaging a Facebook Group. We'll talk about settings, moderation, member approval, content organization, testimonial and voice of customer data collection.
This is a highly marketable skillset and an affordable way to start freelancing.
If you're an online business owner, skip training your community hire and give them the digital media skills you wish they knew already.
the Freelance Biz Kickstarter

Don't know where to start? This 2-hour self-paced DIY course is designed to help talented, highly skilled go-getters turn their skills into an extra income stream. The course will help a new freelancer set up their business and sign clients quickly. The training covers client acquisition and on-boarding through front-end business systems: Portfolios, Discovery Calls, Proposals, Finding Clients, and Business Fundamentals (legal & taxes).
Designed to help the fast action taker who doesn't have time to waste and is ready to start signing clients yesterday.
