When it comes to your website, do you wish you could just log in, kick ass, and stay focused on your main goal? Are you often frustrated over technical crap that diverts you from your mission?
If either question elicited a ‘Yes’ response, you might just be in the exact right place.
Before suggesting how we might help, it’s important to recognize this about you:
Mostly, you feel the fear and do it anyway. Else you wouldn’t be here reading about people who say they guide you through the fear and help you cross a bunch of website to-dos off your list.
We bet you do a lot of the work on your site yourself. You’ve probably got good reasons for that – none of which have to do with thinking you don’t need pro help.
It’s more like you’re smart enough to use your profits deliberately…strategically…to help you get to that “next level” in your blog or business without making any big mistakes.
You need someone with the expertise to guide you along your journey, and sometimes share the load. That way you can be more effective. Right?
Why would we care about your blog/online business?
Here’s the short answer: Because YOU do.
At least, we think you do. If you’re not pursuing something that matters very much to you, you need more than technical guidance. Not judging. We’ve both been there.
From 2009 until 2017, Teresa helped a variety of clients with new websites, broken websites, slow websites, ugly websites, website training – you name it, and there’s a good chance she’s done it. Before that, she spent a decade in a firm where most of the clients were Fortune 500 types.
If she had to sum up her pre-2017 experience it would be this: Decent money. Little joy.
Where she can help the most – and finds the most joy – is in working with people who give a damn about their website because they understand it is the hub of their vision, around which everything else revolves.
You blog. You sell stuff online. You are figuring out e-mail marketing, or trying (OMG we’re with you on that one).
You are someone who might not always feel fearless, but you act in a way that often leads others to believe you are.
You are not…
You are not someone who pays the cheapest developer/designer that looks legit enough to get the job done. Actually, “done” is exactly what the fearful bunch think they are when their website launches.
You are not someone who fears their website login. You understand that blogging is powerful for business, and that a well-maintained site keeps your online image safe from internet cretins.
You aren’t someone who can afford to be fearful, because your website is helping you build a life you love. It’s not that you never worry about this journey you’re on, but that you’re not going to let it stop you.
We will go to the virtual ends of the earth to help people like you.
In 2017, Teresa decided to say “Thanks, but no thanks” to the fearful. She folded her freelance web design business and founded A Fearless Venture, a consultancy aimed at supporting those who’ve ventured onto the web to do something that matters in their life.
In 2018, Brian joined Teresa in A Fearless Venture, after closing a successful brick and mortar business.
Brian added project management expertise and big-picture strategy to the equation, along with years of experience ensuring client happiness.
How we bring value to what you do
Whatever path you’re forging on the web, we aim to deliver the expertise and assistance to help smooth the way. You could be designing. Or blogging. Or selling handmade items, photography or another kind of expertise.
When we work with clients, one of the best aspects of our projects is showing them – the feel-the-fear/do-it-anyway types – to work with the tools we put in place on their websites. We use screen grabs, step-by-step explanations and video to simplify tasks and empower people to take care of their website like a boss.
Clients rely on our Site Care service to keep their sites secure, backed up and updated. They use our Help Time to coach them through sticky spots and knock out fixes, tweaks and troubleshooting so they don’t waste time outside their zone of genius. And, if they’re losing page views and revenue due to load time issues, they hire us for WordPress Website Speed Optimization.
Oh, yeah – there’s something else you should know
In May of 2018, we sold our home and everything in it, and took off in our RV.
With the computers, systems and connectivity to work from pretty much anywhere, we’re excited about the creative energy that life on the road will bring to our work.
