Hey, I'm Ronii. Then, I normally follow it up with, 'that's with 2 eyes because I'd look pretty silly with only one.' It takes people a minute to get it. I'll wait.

See, you smiled. Everyone does. And that makes me happy.

If you've made it this far I'm hoping that means you've seen something here you like. Awesome! But now you are probably thinking, 'who is the crazy person that drinks champagne all day and loves cats + 'mingos and has the cutest boxer puppy ever named Lucy? {I recently found out that mingo is the cool hashtag for flamingos, #imnotthathip}. Here's what I tell people:

I graduated from Shepherd University with a Bachelors in Business Adminstration with a concentration in Marketing and a minor in French {can’t speak hardly a word of it today – note to self: brush up on the French}. After graduation I came to Charleston, SC on vacation and never went home. I've worked in a wide array of positions from Merchandising Coordinator at the newspaper to Director of Operations for a marketing research firm. I went back to school and received my MBA in 2006 and since have a list of accomplished milestones such as being named a finalist for Most Influential Women in Business.

It's all very formal and sounds impressive, huh? But here's what I really want to tell people:

I've worked really hard my whole career to make other people a lot of money. You know that feeling when you walk into your somewhat glamorous corner office and you just want to cry into your over-priced eco-friendly mug of Starbucks. That was me. I broke free of that. And it wasn't + hasn't been easy. Many days I still cry into my now locally sourced equally as expensive mug of coffee for very different reasons.

I'm good at what I do. I'm good at helping others make their ideas + businesses more beautiful, focused, efficient and effective. I've scraped by on pennies only to make the choice between toothpaste and a bottle of 3 Buck Chuck {FYI, I'm afraid to say the wine won. It has alcohol and alcohol kills germs hence your mouth is clean. You're welcome}. I've 'faked it until I make it.' I've bought into every program out there hoping it was the miracle course that made it all come together. I've taken risks, I've played it safe, I've done nothing, I've worked my ass off, but it has all lead me here. This crazy little business I've created. Almost 10 years in now + I make my own destiny. And I hope to help you shed a little light on how to make yours.

You're already hooked I know. Find out more on how to work with me.

Along the way I've worked with some amazing people like my best bud, Jenn, who helps me with everything and you might see her lurking around here too. Insert cute picture of us here ->

Jenn's in the green. She is my sounding board for everything and while she works mostly with the B&A clients she keeps all the things running around here. 

We were having a photo shoot with the fabulous Dana of Dana K Photography. Who is an excellent example of my branding + marketing prowess {wink, wink}.

This is getting a little long now but if you are still with me and you want a list of some of my jobs from previous lives you can find them here.

Also, I have a fancy pants MBA from The Citadel. It took me 4 years while working full time and I worked my ass off. But it took me to great places and I made a ton of amazing friends who I still work with today.

Then there's this list of organizations I've been involved with and other people who sorta think I'm awesome:

All this has lead me to discover my passion for teaching and working with creative entrepreneurs + small business owners on stalking their peeps to understand how to build brands and businesses that make them squeal like a happy little pig in mud.

let's find out if we're meant to work together?
