I am starting this GFM at the suggestion of a few friends after I reposted a screenshot of a tweet about the idea of a “business warming”. I thought how awesome would that be to support new and small businesses. When I posted it I saw a lot of positive feedback and was highly encouraged to do my own “business warming” for my newly launched T. Mari e Consulting business.
I’ve been doing freelance marketing and public relations since 2009 and it wasn’t until a few months ago that I officially considered myself an entrepreneur or small business. I decided to go this route after years of trying to obtain a job at agencies here in Louisville. I decided to focus on small and black owned businesses because often times they can’t afford big agency marketing, advertising, PR etc. I want to help these businesses, which usually have small marketing budgets, create the most effective marketing strategies.
In order to be of service to them, I need to be equipped with the best tools and resources. I usually only do consultations but I would love to provide more, like actually help create their advertising (print, TV, radio ads, logo etc.). I want to be a one stop Ad/marketing agency. To do that I need a top of the line laptop, pictured here is a MacBook Pro and the new Samsung Notebook 9 Pro. I would like to raise funds to purchase either laptop. Money raised will be for one of these, a protection plan and any necessary software.
I am so passionate about helping people and businesses, I’m passionate about marketing and would eventually love to do this full-time (this is a side thing for now). Anyone who knows me knows I eat, sleep, and breathe marketing.
So here I am taking my shot and requesting your help, anything you can donate to the purchase of one of these laptops would be very greatly appreciated! If/when I reach and/or succeed my goal, anything over that, I am going to pay it forward to another small business for their “business warming!
With much thanks and love,
T. Marie Consulting exists to help small businesses and sole proprietors establish marketing practices imperative to their success.
