I’ve really enjoyed working with Sharon this past year on my CD Creating A Calm Day. Sharon was an integral part of the project from the early days. She helped guide us through the recording process, and aided us in choosing the music. She then pulled all that together to produce a CD I’m proud to have my name on. After successfully producing the CD, Sharon then helped us get the CD on numerous online platforms.
I found Sharon a pleasure to work with. She’s easy to talk with, listens well, and is both calm and supportive. Best of all, she’s a wonderful mix of professional and personable. I feel really lucky to have Sharon on my team. You will be too.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sharon for over two years on my podcast. I’ve been continually impressed with the quality she provides in the podcast editing, sound quality and timeliness. Not only does she do an excellent job of editing and publishing the podcasts, but she is instrumental in ensuring the podcasts are well publicized on my social media sites (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn). She listens to each podcast, summarizes the key points, creates very relevant artwork for each article and then posts the summary articles on social media sites. She’s made sharing the podcast a total breeze for me! I truly consider her as an integral partner in my organization! I think the thing I appreciate most about Sharon is her commitment to meet her deadlines and her professionalism. I’m not the easiest of clients to work with and she stays right in there with me and ensures that we put together an exceptional offer for the listeners. I’m so fortunate to have found her!!

Sharon has been my virtual assistant for several years and still is. I originally hired Sharon because I didn’t want to learn and work FaceBook. She jumped into that task and did a phenomenal job at giving me a presence. She then took over putting my monthly newsletter together, which consists of compiling all of my recent blogs and articles and making it look amazing. (I’m sure she does more than that, I just proof read them and rarely make a change. Sharon does a great job.) She has proven herself so capable she began tweeting for me, taking concepts I’ve written about and making pithy 140 characters messages out of them. Finally, to prove she has completely earned my trust, I now let her post on LinkedIn, which is the social media site I live on and value the most. Sharon recently took the initiative to help grow my mail list and it has already grown 21%. Sharon is bright, willing to work hard and willing to learn new things. However, probably her single best attribute is her ability to write. She uses the English language well. I don’t think I’ve ever caught a grammatical error or typo. What a huge value when the words she writes are attributed to you.

Sharon has supported me through a series of podcast shows via BlogTalkRadio, Internet Radio and “New and Noteworthy” on iTunes in Business. I am a speaker and coach with very limited technical savvy. Working with Sharon, I could put my focus on contact and developing a great guest list. Sharon would then provide support to the guests, set up the podcasting calendar, create a social media buzz on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest. While on Internet Radio – I had a sponsor. Sharon did a fabulous job of giving them what they needed to support the show. If you are even contemplating podcasting or Internet Radio—talk to Sharon! She makes it easy!
Sharon is an amazing person. I trust her like a sister! Her work on social media, blogging assistance and anything else I throw at her — always exceeds my expectations. She has wonderful communication skills and can speak for me to clients. She is a great designer so has the eye, and the knowledge, to create wonderful marketing materials. When I feel swamped — her sense of humor helps me through.

Interview with Dr. Laura Brayton on The Chiropractic Philanthropist with Dr. Ed Osburn
Episode #80 on January 11, 2015 (Transcript below)
Dr. Ed: “What was the first thing that you did when you decided you wanted to start a podcast?”
Dr. Laura: “I thought about it for longer than I’d like to admit. It was scary. There are not a lot of things in my life that kind of intimidate me, but actually believe it or not starting a podcast was intimidating, because I’m not a techie person and I had never worked in front of a microphone before or anything like that. But I knew that I had to get this message out, and that finally pushed me to like okay I have to figure this out. So the way I did that was I found a virtual assistant who knew how to produce podcasts. This woman, she’s in Texas, literally held my hand through the entire process of how to start and create this podcast. Once we got going I was like wow this is really easy and what was I waiting for and why was I so afraid. But that was it for me. If you’re not experienced with how to, I had never even used Conference Call or Skype or anything like that before, so if you don’t know how to do that or post things to iTunes I recommend just hiring someone who does and then they can walk you through the process.”
