The Shoemaker’s Children

There is an old proverb that goes “The shoemaker’s children have no shoes.” I have been living that proverb for many years, so busy working on other businesses’ websites that I have had no time to work on my own. I struggled with this for years, trying to plumb the depths of my own self-neglect, feeling guilty that I had no “face” to show the world that I was proud of showing to the world, questioning how much of this was truly about not having time and how much was about diminished self-worth. Finally it took a friend who brought me some new business and urged me to fix my own website for me to find the incentive. And he had a very simple reason why I should fix my own website:  “You know, the way your site is now, it’s costing you business.”

This was brought home even harder when a potential new client, who I had only had brief introductory email contact with, told me that she went to visit my site and “Maybe it’s just me, but nothing worked.” Ouch! That was the final straw. And both of these events happened within days of each other. So I did what for me was the unthinkable. I put all the projects I was already working on aside and forced myself to spiff up my own website. This is the result. I hope you like it, and if you are looking for a solution to whatever your current situation is, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
