Welcome to the eleventh edition in our “Women In Biz All Around WordPress” feature that will run the 1st Sunday of every month. It’s a new series where we spotlight amazing women and the ways in which they have used WordPress to spread their message, sell their products, or provide valuable services.
The hope is to inspire other midlife women to build their online businesses and find what we’re all looking for; financial freedom, a lifestyle they love, and excitement they may have been missing! All of these women are current or former clients of mine who have inspired me over the years and I think they will inspire you as well.
This month I want to introduce you to a client & friend (actually I’ve become friends with all of my clients in some way or another) Kelly McKenzie! I can still remember the first time I ever visited Kelly’s blog “Just Typikel” isn’t that an awesome name? You only have to read a couple of blog posts and it will become abundantly clear just how you got its name! Normal things don’t happen to Kelly.
Anyway, she had written a post called, “How My Sister Mothered My Children When I Couldn’t,” that was an instant kick in my gut. You see, Kelly lost her husband when her children were just babies really and this post was about how her sister took over when she couldn’t and how grateful she was for her then and now.
When I was 7 years old my father was very sick and spent several weeks in the hospital. So that she could give my father all of her attention my aunt came and took my two brothers and myself to her house hundreds of miles away for about two months maybe a little longer. At 7, it seemed like years.
Her post brought all of that back for me and I realized how much love, understanding, and compassion that my aunt showed to us. She cooked our meals, washed our clothes and dried our tears when home seemed so far away and never, not once, did her or my uncle lost their patience with us. I had to call her that day and tell her how thankful for being exactly what we needed at that time and that I loved her dearly and then I contacted Kelly and our friendship began!
I know you’ll love her just as much as I do!
