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)
