After a little more than a year of extremely hard work, I am thrilled to announce that today marks the day that my website comes to life.
It’s amazing to think of all the events that transpired in order to get to this point, and I’m extremely proud that my team and I stayed the course and created a worthwhile website for the Aspen locals.
A Little History…
The idea came to life a little over a year ago…when the perfect storm occured. I had been dating a guy who needed to promote his independent contractor business, but how could he get the word out on a limited budget? With the economy tanking, commissions from my corporate job dried up so how could I earn extra money on the side? And Craigslist had just announced earnings of $100,000,000. I thought “wow” b/c that site sure is ugly, but functional.
As a former Director of Media Sales at a Fortune 500 company, I’d called on all the top media companies ranging from The New York Times to USA Today to CNN Money, licensing content which could be monetized. I learned a lot during this gig. Mostly, I learned that local content is king.
I was fortunate enough to experience a work from home situation in that position, so I moved from NYC back to Aspen where I always was happiest. At that time, I knew I wanted to bring my knowledge and expertise to the local community, but just needed to find the perfect opportunity. So after many late nights, creative brainstorms and lots of laughs, my company, Sharing Profiles, was born.
HireMeAspen is the first of many local websites planned, so stay tuned!
I intend to stay true to my vision of offering websites that connect and help resort-town locals.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me in this endeavor to date. I am eternally grateful.
