About Fun & Thames
If you’re reading this, you’re a rockstar! There’s so much to read these days, I feel like something that gets skipped over is a person’s Bio. But Bio’s are so important to get to know who is advising you! Plus, I hope to be reading your Bio soon!
So… Here goes!
I started Fun & Thames in 2016 a few months after I stole my husband’s last name 😉
With both my new husband and I working full-time jobs that required a lot of travel apart from one another I decided I wanted to take my career in a different direction. My background is in Marketing and Branding. I worked more than 10 years in the field for various organizations – from a small biochemical company to a mid-size university… my experience stretched across a number of areas but always focused on helping whatever organization I was working with create a strategic marketing plan while developing their unique brand. My work was very rewarding, but I knew the long hours and frequent travel wouldn’t work once we had a family. Ultimately I wanted to be able to work from home without being financially strapped.
As a side hustle, I started blogging and using affiliate links to bring in a passive income. While my first round of blogging was doing well, I realized I was missing the part of my job I enjoyed most – helping others. I decided to use my experience in Marketing and Branding to help my fellow Bloggers and online business owners create their own success. In early 2017 I began advising Bloggers and assisting them in building, branding, and marketing their blog sites.
Doing what I enjoy while helping others succeed was the perfect direction for me – which is why I decided to write my books – The Building Blocks of Blogging series! I wanted the opportunity to use my skills to help others promote their own unique abilities, which in turn I hope will impact their own audiences.
I truly believe the business of blogging allows anyone to use their unique skills and tell their personal story. Everyone has a story to tell… my hope is for this blog and my book series to help you get started on your own journey!
