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
I've spent my career in marketing growing businesses - always with the customer experience in mind. That's the view I'll bring to your business.
I can assist with you individual marketing mentoring, work as part of your remote marketing team, or provide you with executive leadership in house.
That's right, sometimes, due to sensitive employee issues, you need to make a change fast to your leadership team. I can help you keep your team motivated and moving forward while you find the right long term fit.
I've worked in start-up, large international firms, declining market firms and with entrepreneurs. I have a unique lens to view markets.
