I am passionate about helping small businesses understand and leverage the power of social media to actually grow their business.
I also double as, Grandma Mary – Social Media Edutainer, but more about her later. I’m also the co-founder of Social Media Manager School, an online training course that has helped over 500 students learn how to start their own business as a social media manager or consultant.
I love speaking and training and speak at many events all over the country and on webinars. Find out more about hiring me as a social media speaker. I have been a guest blogger for Social Media Examiner, Copyblogger, and a contributor to iBlog Magazine. See a complete list here: Guest Posts.

If you are confused about how you can build and grow your business online, hire me.

I love helping companies develop their strategies. And I promise we will have fun!
Now more about how I got started….
I’ve been using Social Media and Internet Marketing successfully to promote my own businesses for years. I have also been doing Improvisational Comedy for 10 years. I decided to blend the two things that I love doing into one business. I used one of my favorite characters and created the Grandma Mary Show (make sure you connect at www.Facebook.com/GrandmaMaryShow).
Grandma Mary is a slightly cranky lady who gives you the straight talk on using Social Media for your business. I wanted to help people learn Social Media, grow their business, and have fun. Mostly Grandma Mary just cracks me up and that’s why I like her so much. She makes learning Social Media fun.
But my passion is to help entrepreneurs and small businesses grow and use the internet to their fullest advantage. I enjoy coaching and developing strategies to show small businesses how to use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube to find new customers and clients.
I look forward to working with you!
