I am a freelance provider of business services including editing (my fave work), copywriting, graphic design, and wordpress website setup and maintenance. I also teach my WP clients how to use WordPress so they can maintain their websites as needed. If they don’t want to, don’t have time to, I do the website work for them
I have recently also signed up as an online tutor at Wyzant.com. My subjects there are Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign and Using Macs, all for beginners. I especially good at helping older folks and beginners who require a patient tutor who can explain things in easy to understand, layman’s terms. Sometimes the younger folks can be impatient with their older and newbie students’ lack of basic computer skills, whereas I enjoy working with them. I live in the Palm Springs, CA area so I have worked with a lot of older folks and beginners, as this area is a magnet for retirees.
2: What is your biggest life lesson?
Take care of yourself first, or you can’t take care of anything else. I used to do a lot of social media training, as you know, but I got so burnt out on it I ended up dealing with anxiety. It’s a 24/7, never-ending thing. It’s important to close those windows sometimes and play with your doggies, spend time with family and friends, do something you enjoy just for fun.
3: What is your biggest achievement?
Hmmm I don’t think I’ve done it yet! But good ones include moving to CA (I love the west coast!), helping care for my mom when she had cancer, being a good friend to my friends, supporting them as they have me, becoming an award winning Toastmaster, and overcoming anxiety. Public speaking is one of the best and most positively productive skills I’ve picked up over the years. The skills learned serve me not only when speaking in front of an audience, but also in one-on-one or small group situations as well.
4: How people can get in contact with you?
MeilaniMacDonald@gmail.com, I’m also on FB and Twitter, tho tbh I don’t do the socials as much as I prob should anymore, but it’s more important to me to avoid the same kind of burnout I went through a few years ago
