What do you actually do?

What do you actually do? – Its a question I am asked frequently, perhaps I don’t shout loud enough at networking events or business breakfasts and perhaps I should have launched my own website a long time ago. To put it into simple words…

I build Websites and manage companies Social Media

That is of course the core of what I do, and I am trying to find the right balance of customers. I spend waaay too long on Social Media but sometimes finding worthy content is more difficult than it should be.  Of course, as a small business owner my actual jobs a wide a varied so I thought i’d give you a bit of an insight in case you read and ask – I never knew he did that !
