LEARN MORE ABOUT ME

I help you build the *perfect* blog with drag-and-drop
Showit templates for Wordpress. 

A week into my first job with a big-time NYC designer, I knew working in an office wasn't for me. I knew I didn't want to exchange my time for money, and I knew I could make much more than my entry-level paycheck. I decided that I'd stay at the job but spend every spare moment learning how to create a website and grow it into an automated money-making machine. Exactly 1.5 years later, I made my first $19.99 from a membership site I built.  I'll never forget that first "You've Got Money" notification on my phone. I was hooked and determined to replace my full-time income from the web. My membership site soon doubled what I made at my 9-5, so I said #boybye to that toxic job and shed a happy tear as I rode the subway home to my new career online.

Exactly 1.5 years later, I made my first $19.99 from a membership site I built.  I'll never forget that first "You've Got Money" notification I saw on my phone. I was hooked and determined to replace my full-time income from the web. My membership site soon doubled my income and I said #boybye to that toxic job and shed a happy tear as I rode the subway home to my new career online.

It all started at a
Devil Wears Prada
kinda job

I launched more websites and learned how to make money in new ways online. Along with the membership site, I created several affiliate marketing blogs, sold over 365,000 units from my e-commerce sites, and launched a digital product that saw over 100,000 downloads. My businesses were featured on The Today Show, BuzzFeed, Mashable, Apartment Therapy, Good Housekeeping, Brides.com, and many more. I worked from home, took international vacations with friends, spent time in different cities for months at a time, and was able to be with my mom when she had health issues and surgeries. It wasn't always easy, and there were plenty of ups and downs, but I learned how to thrive online.  

I hit $127,000 of online income in just three days 

And I'm here to help you build, customize, and grow the blog of your dreams. (Pssst... It takes more discipline and consistency than computer and tech skills!)

Blogging is the most important thing you can do to establish steady daily traffic. It will attract unlimited visitors, grow your email list, and build your community! It's the BEST thing you can do if you're looking to grow online in any way, shape, or form.

And so, I encourage you to start with a blog. Fall in love with the layout, customize it to feel like your digital home, find a posting routine, share what you love, build an audience, grow your email list. At any time, you can easily add your services and products with my add-on template kits.  

I design and sell blog templates because in over a decade of working online, I've learned first-hand that blogging yields the most massive, powerful, and consistent traffic growth.  It's a free and powerful marketing tool that (when done strategically) can attract endless visitors, subscribers, customers, and fans.

In addition to the boat-load of traffic blogging brings, it's also brought more true and steady passive income than any other online stream of income I've set up.

There are tons of beautiful Showit templates designed to promote your services, products, and portfolios. Yet most of them (if not all!) offer very basic, blah blog design--not to mention they leave you on your own to install and set up your template for success.

I'm here to fix that! I'm here teach you: the blog is the heart of your site. It feeds life to all your other pages, products, and services. 







Let me tell you my secret: It all starts with a blog.
(Not Instagram.)

4. SHOULD I HIRE A SEO EXPERT TO OPTIMIZE MY WEBSITE?

AS soon as you add your colors, fonts, and images, your template will take on a completely unique personality!

3. WON'T MY BLOG LOOK LIKE EVERY OTHER TEMPLATE OUT THERE?

NO! THEY ARE TECH-FRIENDLY and CODE-FREE. I was aN ANTHROPOLOGY MAJOR :) No computer science degree REQUIRED.

2. DO I NEED TO BE TECHIE TO USE YOUR BLOG TEMPLATES?
1. WHAT'S THE BIGGEST MYTH about STARTING a BLOG?

NO NEED. MY BLOG TEMPLATES ARE FOR WORDPRESS, WHICH include YOAST, the #1 USER-FRIENDLY SEO PLUGIN.

UGGH, please don't! SQUARESPACE is OK FOR a BASIC STATIC SITE that isn't looking to grow MUCH traffic. BUT FOR BLOGGING YOU WANT THE POWER and PLUGINS THAT WORDPRESS OFFERS.

YOU'll gain MORE TRAFFIC IF YOUR SITE HAS NEW, FRESH CONTENT 1) FOR GOOGLE to CRAWL and 2) TO ADD TO Pinterest.

8. IS THERE A LIMIT ON HOW MUCH OF MY TEMPLATE I CAN CUSTOMIZE?
7. DO I REALLY NEED TO BLOG? CAN'T I JUST CREATE A BASIC WEBSITE?

SISOO IS A SPIN ON THE WORD "SISU", WHICH IS THE Finnish SPIRIT OF PERSEVERANCE AND DETERMINATION WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO achieve anything.

Bloggin' FAQ

What Does Sisoo Mean?

How a Single Blog Post Gained Me 20K+ Email Subscribers

The Finnish art of inner strength, endurance, tenacity, determination, perseverance to defeat any obstacle in your way. Sisu is an inherent spirit of Finnish culture. It is the will and integrity to overcome, no matter the odds. (And to do so with a smile.) In English, the closest saying may be, "Just do it!" Or as my Finnish dad loved to explain it,  "to have intestinal fortitude" or... GUTS!


OFFER VALUE FOR AN OPT-IN

I had no idea that a freebie planner printable would be such a hit, and within 3 months see over 20,000 email opt-ins.
