Why I Do It
Luckily my work is also my passion so it’s all good.
Before we get into that, a little bit about me…
After leaving school back when the Spice Girls started taking over, I trained as a nursery nurse and worked with mini precious moppets for five years – having my own girl moppet along the way.
No longer a Teenage Dirtbag and fed up of changing nappies, and little people in general, I found someone to take a chance on me and began working in HR at the start of the 21st Century.
Ten years, a new fella and two boy sprogs later, I’d outgrown HR and office life while Journey were telling us to Don’t Stop Believing. Losing lots of weight with Slimming World led me to purchase a franchise with them and I quickly became a manager, running successful groups and a team of consultants.
A few years later and my marriage breaks up, things all change and I have no direction…kinda like Nicki Minaj in her Starships. Pulling on my big girl pants, I make the decision to go back to education, specifically university, and there was only one subject I wanted to learn about.
Fast forward four more years and I’ve had the most amazing journey and listening when Justin T is telling us that he Can’t Stop The Feeling.
Somehow I’ve managed to survive a horrendous divorce, see girl child through her GCSEs, move house every year, share custody of the boy children AND get a First in my degree! YAY ME!
The last hurdle I had to jump over before we catch up to Present Day was to actually do something with my degree. It turns out that achieving a First in a modern subject doesn’t mean that your starting salary will be enough to provide for a single parent family.
Extra big girl pants were needed at the end of 2016 when my new business venture started and I stumbled across a certain Sarah Cook and CNWM.
My passion and consistent hobby for the last 30 odd years has been computing and this has finally turned into something that can support me and my family!

What I've Done
I offer an extensive range of web and technological services, as well as designing and building complete websites. Please feel free to take a look at these...
I Do Weddings is a directory business for the wedding industry, based in the South West and Helen asked Pretty Horizontal to build the website, designed by Laura from Wise Ass Marketing.
Michelle built a landing page for me for an upcoming workshop that I wanted to look super professional, as opposed to just using the standard Eventbrite link.
I needed really quickly and she delivered within 48 hours. The landing page is amazing, looks really professional, branded in my business colours and the feedback I've had has been brilliant! I'd highly recommend.

Excellent service, great sense of humour! Michelle spoke in language I could understand, took time to find out what the needs of my business were and quoted for what I needed. I recommend her without hesitation as she exceeded my expectations. I am delighted with the end result.

Michelle is amazing. She helped me out with a technical issue earlier in the year when I was struggling to set up an event and we are planning some future work together for my book launch later this year. Her enthusiasm is never-ending and she is incredibly passionate about what she does, easy to get to know and easy to get along with! Thanks Michelle!

She really knows her stuff - I would strongly recommend Michelle for all your website needs!

Although Michelle hasn't built a website for me, she has been a consummate professional on the networking scene. She works hard to bring complimentary businesses together and supports local businesses wherever she can x

I first met Michelle at CNWM and also on social media and from the outset it was clear that she new her stuff. I struggle being from a generation that did not grow up with computers and am often teaching myself. When I found out about her facebook group Technically Challenged Women I immediately started posting my techie queries and have received great support which has upped my confidence in the IT world... I love seeing her at networks, she is always cheerful and suggesting ways that people can have a website that is affordable for their needs.

Michelle's has not only been amazing at helping get together 2 websites for me, she's also been massively helpful in educating me with some social media aspects that ran straight over my head.
