Life isn't only about making money and being a success, it's about contributing, feeling part of something and doing something truly worthwhile - when we do that with passion then the money is an outcome of that, rather than a goal in and of its self.
I'm driven to be the best that I can be in all that I do, whether that be modern jive dancing, connecting with local people, understanding more about food or helping dental practices stand out as the dental expert and help local people with their dental health concerns.
When we truly take time to connect with the person, in business and in life, we discover the true beauty and meaning of life itself.
Here's an example.
Right now I live in rural Dorset on the beautiful Jurassic Coast. I have considerable reach on social media, write a couple of personal blogs and love to do what I can to help and support other local businesses, especially organic, sustainable and ethically managed businesses.
By using my reach on social media, if I'm able to help one single person understand more about ethically traded, sustainably manufactured and organically grown chocolate then I feel a deep sense of satisfaction (we all love chocolate and anyone that has tried Solkiki will know what I mean).

If that happens Solkiki have been able to sell another bar and reach another person, whilst the person looking for such a fabulous product has, at last, been able to find what they were looking for.
If I'm able to connect one single person to the local Community Supported Agriculture scheme, then not only is that single person now able to enjoy freshly grown organic and ethically produced food but that small business now has a new customer (and I continue to get great veg from them too).

I could go on about coffee, hats, dancing or wine - but I think you get the picture.

Truly creating a win/win relationship between someone searching for the answer to their problem and connecting them with someone that has the solution to that problem is community-based marketing, relationship based marketing and sustainable marketing which genuinely helps everyone involved.
Marketing isn't something I do, marketing is something I am. Did I already say that?
With the skills and track record to deliver empirically verified results for dental practices, my goal is to be the person in dentistry to change the face of online marketing, to set up your online marketing to work as a cohesive system with a common message that simply says “I am the local dental expert, come to me and I can help”.
Life is too short to not make a difference to the lives of other people around us and have fun while we do it.
I look forward to working together with you & the people local to you as a win/win/win – now THAT’S a result!
