Why Aren’t You Blogging?
About two years ago, my mentor and colleague Bill Farquharson asked me that question. At the time, I was working for Canon Business Solutions, selling digital production equipment to commercial printers in the south suburbs of Illinois. I had never thought about blogging, but after noodling it over for a month or so, I began to look into it. I went to BlogSpot, because other people I knew who had blogs used it, and within 10 minutes I had a blog. I was a blogger. I was “one who blogs.”
Blogger, author, consultant, coach and all around evangelist for the graphic arts industry, Kelly sold digital printing for 15 years so she understands the challenges, frustrations and pitfalls of building a successful sales practice. Her mission is to help printers of all sizes sell more stuff. Kelly's areas of focus include sales and marketing coaching, enabling clients to find engagement strategies that work for them and mentoring the next generation of sales superstars.
Kelly graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Political Science and, among other notable accomplishments, co-founded the Windy City Rollers, a professional women's roller derby league. She is also the mother of two sets of twins under the age of ten, so she fears nothing.
