Really small businesses deserve help, too.

And we TRY to make it FUN too, because GEEZ. Life’s too short to make it a freaking grind!

A little about Kelley

I’ve been writing and editing professionally for eight years—from fact-checking the music listings for the local alt weekly to writing “best cookies in town” listicles.

For the last five years, I’ve been 100% laser focused on how website copy works. (When I’m not thinking about cookies.)

My mission is to help you build a business that fits your life. 

Choose me if:

    • You want to be part of a community of small businesses that support each other
    • You could use a calm, steady presence in your work life
    • Your brand voice is: upbeat, positive, friendly, slightly quirky, bold, or exciting

Don’t choose me if:

  • Your business promotes weight loss as a goal in itself
  • Your brand voice is the actual voice of a zombie (too scary)
