If you’re like many coaches, consultants, and other solo entrepreneurs I’ve met, you have a vision for what you want to do and who you want to help with your business.
And if you’re reeeally like those business owners, you want to get working on turning that vision into a reality already!
The only problem is you get overwhelmed by all the tech possibilities that are involved related to setting up a website to support your business, and you get stuck figuring out what to do or where to start.
So you keep thinking and researching and planning—knowing that it’s not getting you where you want to go.
You wish you could find a way to get clear direction for your efforts, along with the support you need to make it all happen.
Incredible news! Your wish has been granted.
Hi, I’m Bonnie Boden. I’m a web developer and I’m a solo entrepreneur, too.

Amazing (and Humbling!) Words From My Clients
Where it all began.
I had my first taste of being a solo entrepreneur early on in my professional career.
Right around the time I graduated with my master’s degree in instructional technology, I went to work as an interactive multimedia developer at an eLearning company. After being introduced to the World Wide Web in grad school, I became interested in creating websites and taught myself how to do that in my free time.
Once I’d put together a handful of sites (for myself and a few family members), I started a freelancing business creating websites for small business owners. I enjoyed the challenge and the variety in that freelance work. At the time, though, it was an add-on to my full-time job, not something that I thought would (or could) be my only work.
When I realized spending long hours in an office with windows that didn’t open (among other things) just wasn’t the right situation for me, I took a leap and left the job at the eLearning company without another job lined up.
I continued freelancing, adding other services to the mix. I still didn’t have consistent work and hadn’t yet figured out the way to make that happen, so after about a year I started a new full-time job in an office with windows that opened. (It was in a basement, though, so I knew it wasn’t quite the dream spot just yet—but it was a definite improvement.)
This position took me to a nonprofit development office, where I held a variety of positions over time, with responsibilities for a website, an online community, a print magazine, and special events. I continued my freelance website work and started selling nature photographs I’d taken, too. (I sold them online, and at local farmer’s markets and fairs.)
What happened next was big.
After about 6 years in the basement office, it came time for me to move on. And as before, I took a leap and left without having a position working for someone else lined up. But this time, that was actually part of the plan—I didn’t want to find another position like that.
I’d finally decided that I wanted to make my freelancing work my only work—I wanted to be a solo entrepreneur.
- Choosing what projects I did and didn’t want to work on.
- Setting my own schedule, working (and not working) when I wanted.
- Choosing the types of clients I wanted to help.
- Adding (and removing) services that I felt like offering.
And all the while, researching, exploring, and learning about ways to improve my business and ways to help my clients do what they did better.
That was 13 years ago now. It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s definitely been the right fit for me.
That brings us to now.
And now I’m thrilled that I get to help other solo entrepreneurs eliminate tech obstacles on the path to creating websites that support their business dreams, so they can start doing what feels right to them and working with the clients they want to work with.
I especially love helping to figure out their website goals and then putting together step-by-step plans to help their visions come to life.
And one of the absolute best things about it all? I can open the windows whenever I want.
