What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

I need help with introducing my services to the autism and medical community. I need help with designing my webpage and connecting it to social media. I spend so much energy trying to figure this out I don't have time for any of the other important business stuff I need to get done, like marketing messages. I need help with automating my webpage so that visitors get automatic messages I need help developing a promotion plan-how to focus in on particular messages and avoid creating my own noise. I feel like I'm constantly in my own way or using my time figuring out technology. I need help with how to blog I need help with taxes, although, I only have one paying client at this time.

Actions I’ve taken so far

I have set-up a website but it's hard to keep it up-to-date in a timely way. (https://autismbestlife.com). I have a facebook page but I'm having problems connecting it to the website and getting it to work -it keeps giving me errors. I have several youtube videos/articles trying to figure out how to get social media to connect to webpage I have been trying to draft an introductory email to send out that I can follow-up call to but its not going well.

My future goals

I would like to have 4 full Young Adult series running by the end of 2021. I would like my free services to be well used by the autism community by end of 2021. I would like to do research on my fitness program to set a best-practice for autism and physical activity. I would like to be able to pay my interns a stipend by January 2022. I would like to have my business be my only job by summer 2022 if not sooner. I want to do more in advocacy and policy. I'd like to explore how to connect/become/affiliate with a nonprofit. I'd like to work smarter instead of harder (but so far that's not my world when it comes to technology.) I would like to be social media savvy.

My motivations to work with a mentor

As a member of the autism community, I am passionate about helping young adults on the sensory spectrum as their services are dropped when they leave elementary school. I need help from someone who wants to make a difference for folks and believes small businesses can make a difference. Someone that knows how hard it is to work a regular job and start a business at the same time. Someone who knows how frustrating it can be to juggle everything and has seen the light at the end of the tunnel. Someone who can help me stay focused and guide me through the fun stuff and the hard stuff when it comes to being a business owner. Someone who will be honest with me about approaches that work and don't work. Someone that has a sense of humor.
