Entrepreneurship 101: Building a Website


I have been told for quite a while that I am a strong writer. I have also been told that the group I work with is unique. This combination has presented me with an interesting opportunity to use my writing skills (I credit my psychology degree 😊), and share some of my experiences working with engineers, and about my own entrepreneurial adventures.

Where to start was my next hurdle. After testing the waters with a few posts on LinkedIn, I decided it was time to build a blog, and get serious about sharing my stories. I spent a lot of time researching how to build a successful blog, how to build a website, how to promote your blog through social media, and honestly, everything I read seemed over my head. I am not a techie, I am not into digital marketing, web development or graphic design, I needed to get my feet wet with something simple.

This is how I stumbled upon building a website with wix.com.

On a quiet Friday night at home, it was time to stop reading and start something. Worst case scenario would be that I have no idea what I am doing and the website never gets published.

Working with Wix has been incredibly easy compared to what I expected. I am by no means an expert yet, however I have had help from some incredibly talented friends who are slowly teaching me about design and marketing.


My best advice to anyone thinking about starting a blog or building a website for your business? Just do it, find a quiet moment, and just start playing around with it. There are a ton of platforms out there that provide fantastic templates and plug ins that you can use to get started. I know my first attempt at website building is not perfect, but it has come a long way from where it started. Plus, part of entrepreneurship is learning from your mistakes and being open to change as you grow.

I am always open to feedback, and looking for ways to improve. I would love to hear from anyone who has suggestions or advice!
