About my Business:

My name is Michelle Gower. Most people just call me Gower. So who am I? Pat Howlett, CEO, inSideNetworkx and InSide919.com: Michelle is one of the few people I would feel comfortable throwing the keys to my business for her to operate... confident in knowing that it would be "Better" when I returned. Olalah Njenga, Yellowwood Group: Michelle's approach to business and life is refreshing. Her "roll your sleeves up and let's get it done" attitude kept me from pulling my hair out. Michelle is a consummate professional who cares about both the outcome of the project and the business owners who depend on her. Her wit, enthusiasm and technological acumen are not easily matched. I am fortunate to have her in the background keeping things straight. Anora McGaha, CEO, Clearsight Creative Resources: She helped me find a wordpress theme for two community sites I'm setting up. That may sound easy, but there are literally hundreds and hundreds of themes, all with different widgets and capabilities. My only regret is that I took so long to call her. Angel Lebak, CEO, AssistantAngel.com: I cannot say enough about the excellence of Michelle Gower's work. She is clear, concise, and gives the client honest and reasonable expectations. Those of my clients who have used her services, have seen the value in quality and excellent workmanship. I am most impressed with Michelle's level of integrity with the clients. She truly puts their project needs FIRST. Julie Seibert, Healing Through Organization, LLC: What a painless process for me and a fantastic experience for me the first time I had to go through this. I will rehire her in a heartbeat... Michelle... You rock sista! Thx so much for an amazing class tonight. You are such an expert and made it all so easy to understand. Your analogies were perfect making everything so clear. Marni Blythe via Facebook Michelle, I appreciated the WordPress class last evening. I actually had fun and enjoyed it! Thanks for breaking it down into simple, understandable terms. JoAnne Schaub via inSide919 Thanks so much for a masterful introduction to WordPress – I feel enlightened and empowered! Looking forward to your class in the spring to learn more… Lori Ferguson via inSide919 Just wanted to send you a note to say thank you very much for offering your expertise on my WordPress question today. I sincerely appreciate it! Beverly Mahone via inSide919 That's right - I'm a trainer, mentor, and plain-English advocate of WordPress and small business success.

About Me:

I'm an insufferable punster with lightning-quick wit and super-stealth ninja skills. I eat way too much pasta, and love the one brand of beer that seems to go flat before I get to it. I talk to my cat like she understands me, which I probably wouldn't do if she didn't actually understand me. When I'm not fighting crime, I have eighteen years' experience in marketing, and in marketing the smaller folks so they can make just as much of a splash as the big fish, no matter the size of the pool. And, I like cheese. A passion for positive and healthy living without being a "nut", I try to live each day seeing the bright side with a dose of humor. That tends to infect my clients and students, since I use a holistic approach to problem solving. But ultimately, you don't care about me. You care about you and how I can help you start kicking the a-you-know-what you've been dreaming of.

    I promise to increase my efforts around here to increase your visibility, reputation and business connections. Let me know whenever I can be of help.

  • The answer is Yes :] - a bit of education and personal notes will start that process - we allowed what was allowed in the past to be done in September (1st month after the transition) you and I know that folks doing blatant ads/promos are doing more harm to themselves than good.

    The face remains that all one has to do to post an Article is to post the Article.

  • Don't believe I've told you how much I appreciate your contributions in a while - well today's the day... Thanks!! Always top shelf stuff.

  • Hi, Michelle, Thanks so very much for all your expert advise at Christine Alexander's Meetup last week. All the information you experts offered was invaluable to those who are not in the fields of PR or marketing. HUGE thank you!

  • Dear Gower ~ Looks like I missed your birthday celebrations and sending on-time greetings. Let's extend the happiness and joy an extra week or two! I just finished reading all the glowing testimonials on this page and I do agree with them all. What took me so long to give you a call? I would also like to thank Martin Brossman for introducing me to you this month. Blessings, Debby
