Social Media Made Simple
be curious...be generous...be real

"Barbara recently demonstrated the uncanny ability to delve deeply into my soul and have my creativity and confidence soar. With just a few clearheaded words, she sort of turned on a light and gave me the insight I needed when I was severely stuck, inside the revision of my memoir. My writing jumped light years ahead, and I have no doubt that later this year, I will finally find an agent. Thank you, Barbara! "

"It’s my pleasure to write a recommendation for Barbara Lemaire. I’ve worked with her on and off for the past seven years. The first time I hired Barbara, she taught me how to use all the features of LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to increase my connections and develop a following for my products. 
When I decided to write my autobiography, I chose Barbara to coach me through the process. She asks the right questions, especially the hard ones. We agreed on tasks and deadlines which moved me along in my writing. After I completed my book,  Transformation: Creating An Exceptional Life in the Face of Cancer, she worked with me to sharpen my interview skills and to become comfortable doing presentations and book signings. 
Barbara is a patient coach and expert in her field. I highly recommend her as a consultant to authors and entrepreneurs wanting to create an edge over their competition."
