She demonstrated that by identifying creative ways to make money, like making stuffed animals and rock creations and selling them in the neighborhood. During college, she helped develop and run a high-end, children’s day camp that accommodated 300 kids per day.

    Laurie loves providing marketing support and direction to help businesses and coaches develop an emotional connection to their clients through a solid marketing foundation that facilitates engagement and drives loyalty to their brands. She loves supporting soulful entrepreneurs that enhance people’s lives in so many tangible and intangible ways and wants to help them succeed to expand their reach and benefit more people.

      Tamara and Rain

      Tamara Brower

      Web Designer

      Tamara desires to help small businesses have a web presence that showcases the client’s talents by building a virtual version of their business so potential customers can ‘visit’ that business 24/7. She has been successfully doing so as an entrepreneur for over 20 years.

      Tamara works as a team member with Hillary working with WordPress.

      She is the owner and operator of her website-building company, The Office Sage, which is a subsidiary of her company, A Basic Idea, LLC, that specializes in large programming projects and software creation.

      Tamara enjoys working with ‘soulful’ brands because she experiences things on a deeper, more spiritual level and can appreciate the desire of Hillary’s clients to help transform people’s lives into happier and more spiritual versions of themselves.

      When Tamara isn’t sitting at her computer, she enjoys training her dogs in many different disciplines; agility, obedience, conformation, scent work, field, to name just a few, and when time allows, she can be found riding her horse through the woods enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.
