Hi, I'm Hope

My journey into blogging started years ago, when "Live Journals" became a "big thing".

In the last 15 years, I've worked as an Event Producer for a national charity, running one of the largest conferences for television producers in the world. I was also a renaissance festival performer for about 4 years. But when my husband and I decided to start a family, I focused on my small event photography business. That is when I found blogging  for business and discovered what a powerful tool it can be! 

Since then, I have personally built  3 businesses through blogs, over 50 blogs for other companies and worked to create a programs that will help others build their businesses. Over the last 2 years, I have taught over 400 bloggers to build their dreams into WordPress reality.

I get how easy it is to become overwhelmed with options and feeling not sure what to do next, which is why I have created NO BS - the perfect program to take your blog to the next level.

You can build a dynamite blog!

"The Purple Teacup is the absolute best place to go if you want to be a blogger. Anyone can pay to have a blog built for them, but not everyone knows how to manage it. Hope is everything. She teaches you how to build from the ground up. BUT she also teaches you HOW to succeed! How often to post, what type of content will perform, and how to promote. It’s all here. Then, as you grow, she continues to help you in the form of advanced material! Blogging has been on my wish list for years and within a few months of learning The Purple Teacup exists I HAVE A BLOG!"
