With more than 15 years experience in designing and coding websites, Michelle Shaeffer empowers solopreneurs to conquer technology and build effective, inspiring online business presences that captivate their audiences. She's been online since before Google launched, coding websites when was still cool and 28.8bps was a fast internet connection. After designing hundreds of websites, coding thousands of pages, and providing fabulous virtual assistant services for 5 years, she founded her own hosting company for small business owners with a library of resources for achieving success which has been going strong since 2005. She's “been there” and “done that” when it comes to running a successful small business, building websites, and working with the servers involved and is always happy to share that knowledge to help other solopreneurs leverage technology to save time and energy running their businesses.
She's passionate about self-sufficiency and the amazing role that small businesses play in our economy, believing strongly that everyone who wants to should have a way to build a home based business to help support their family or as a creative outlet. Her motivation is to be a small part of helping women to find the value in what they can do and accomplish (because too many of us hide our talents or struggle with low self-esteem when we are truly amazing, beautiful, strong people).Michelle's Twitter profile describes her as: "Caffeine powered, Libertarian, 20-something gal enjoying life with my kids and husband. Helping solopreneurs stay inspired and growing." That sums it up nicely. Depending on the time of day you might find her designing logos and websites, homeschooling her three children, chatting on Twitter, managing her website hosting company, or playing with her kids in the beautiful Alaskan sunshine while enjoying a frappucino. In addition to a hopeless addiction to Starbucks, she's also a fan of political thriller novels and the Deadliest Catch.Catch up with everything she's into online and follow her blog at www.michelleshaeffer.com
