About Share Your Story Media
Your Website Partner and Guide
Hi! I am Lisa Ratzlaff, and I started Share Your Story Media to make it easier for small business owners like you to have websites that help them build a business they love.
I’ve met so many small business owners who are passionate about their business and are doing great things, but struggle getting an effective website.
It’s too complicated, too time consuming, and too hard to find someone really interested in helping them.
I wanted to change all that.
My Approach Is Simple
Create reliable, high-performing websites that help you succeed in a way that feels right, so you can spend your time doing what you love instead of running your website.
Values That Guide My Work
The Back Story
But most importantly, I watched a community grow between the people I interviewed, my readers, and me.
I fell in love with these stories and helping local business owners get the word out about what they do.
Then, I had a blast moving my blog from Blogger to WordPress. I wasn’t totally surprised by that because I have a history of loving and working with technology.
But I also discovered a creativity and passion burning inside me. I loved storytelling and playing around with WordPress.
A light turned on inside. How could I combine my passion for stories and creative geekiness into my work?
Finding My Passion
So, I started Share Your Story Media, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
I studied design, CSS and html. The more I learned, the more I wanted to know. Another whole world opened up. Web design became the path for letting my creativity out.
It is the work I am meant to do.
A Little About Me
I live in Portland, Oregon, with my beloved Corgi, Dagger. I love exploring the city by bike and by foot, and learning what each neighborhood has to offer. I also love meeting the people who live and work here.
I continue daily to learn more about design, WordPress, and the coding behind it. Work is like play. I love designing, and getting to know my clients, and I can’t stop.
Thanks for stopping by!
