Hello, I’m Toni Nelson, a mom who took a vacuum, a bottle of Fantastic and cleaned my way to a 6 figure business before selling it.
When I started my first business, I didn’t have training or a guidebook. Google and YouTube didn’t exist. Social Media didn’t exist. Everything I learned was in the trenches.
Looking back I believe that’s part of what made all my businesses successful.
I had to learn all the marketing strategies I could to promote and grow my business because the bottom line is this.
If you don’t promote you can’t profit.
Because I discovered the 3 step process to success I was able to bring my business to 6 figures sell it and then pursue a number of passions I had.
One was to be a licensed massage therapist. Once again knowing how to market my business was the key to success. For 13 years I had my license.
Throughout all my business ventures I had a camera in hand. Long before people talked about newsletters I was writing them and sharing visual content that was appealing.
Is it any wonder that my next business would be as a photographer and videographer?
That’s where I learned the most about marketing and using social media.
Today I am thrilled and excited to say besides being a Certified Social Media Manager I’m an Award Winning Photographer/Videographer.
Having had such a diverse business background enables me to know and understand what business owners need to grow their business.
There’s no doubt about it we live in a world where we need to stand out from the competition.
That’s where I shine. I can help you be seen and heard locally, globally, 24/7 by your customers/clients or patients.
For over 30 years I’ve been helping people start and grow their business.
I didn’t always work directly with business owners but then I got the call that changed it all.
A young mom called me crying. She needed my help and guidance to start a business. She didn’t want to go back to the 9 to 5 grind. It was her goal to stay home with her baby. My heart went out to her. Instantly my mind flashed back to my own experience. As always I went into action mode and started helping this mom. I decided to write a simple step by step book for other women. One that could be consumed in a matter of hours and then acted upon. That book is Sexy Savvy and Successful: A Woman’s Guide On How To Start A Business, Gain Financial Freedom, and Buy More Shoes!
Since writing my first book I’ve gone on to write The Secret Equation To Attracting More Clients – Marketing + P Factor + Video =$$$ and 101 Ways To Marketing Your Business For Free or Low Cost. Book number four is in the works!
Let me ask you how many marketing agencies do you work with that have written one book let alone 4?
What makes me different from all the other businesses out there who offer marketing is that I not only talk about marketing and social media I’m out there on a daily basis doing it and writing about it.
Who would you rather work with? Someone who talks about marketing or someone who is an expert in the field?
Becoming a published author taught me even more about the power of social media. It’s an ever-changing world and we need to keep up to date with all the changes. When we do our businesses can grow and thrive in an otherwise crowded environment.
The whole experience also made me realize I needed to focus on helping other business owners claim their online space.
I decided to take the extra step and become a Certified Social Media Manager.
It’s been my pleasure to help business owners from all over the world market their business successfully.

Be Savvy and Successful!
