You've come to the right place if


tell me how

i believe

in team-work; leaders who lead by example; ethical and honest discussions; feedback that allows for improvement; laughter; continuous learning; sharing of mistakes; failures; and successes along with providing leaders, peers and staff with the tools to make them succeed.

Once we agree that this is the foundation, great marketing happens

we believe

that good design is a language, not a style (to quote massimo vignelli).

you don't live in a box. So we won't try to fit your design in one.

we believe

that high style doesn't always have to mean high dollar.

we aren't afraid of mixing thrifty finds with quality staples.

we believe

in fresh flowers. but we know that's not practical for every day.

shhhh don't tell. we have the best faux plants for real people.

I'm excited to share my marketing journey with you so we can grow your business together.

I call myself a career marketer. Marketing is my genius zone.  I look at every situation with two lenses - the customer experience and business goals. I've been in the business of marketing for over 20 years!

I live just outside of Toronto where I have grown a wonderful city garden.  Time in nature and gardening is where I relax and generate new ideas and solve problems.

I have two adult children and a hubby who is not an Instagram Husband. I'm on my own there!

I'm a big fan of doing digital detoxes to focus on the things that matter and living your own unique life.  Don't get me wrong, I love Instagram and Pinterest, but you need time to have your own thoughts and ideas to be unique.

Your personal brand needs the authentic you to show up

i'm Jo-Ann Blondin

Your personal marketing mentor


I've been working in marketing for my entire career - always with the focus of getting results to show the impact on revenue.  I've always worked in emerging market areas, so I thrive in thinking outside the box for solutions.

I took a side-step in my corporate career to go to school to become a Nutritionist.  That was fun for a bit.  What I did learn was the many ways you are pulled as an entrepreneur and why you need to outsource parts of your life, so the focus remains on revenue.  

I'm super glad to have tried that.  Through it, my cooking skills improved a lot, as did my photography and social media skills.  It allowed me to have hands on experience with all the new media approaches and meet amazing people all over North America.  

You benefit from my time in corporate, as well as an entrepreneur.

I understand marketing and design

From planning to execution and tracking for results
