I’m Chantilly, an online business coach, designer and creative strategist. I help women (and a few men) to design vibrant brands, beautiful websites and strategic online businesses.
Entrepreneurship isn’t just about making money or a name for yourself. Although it can lead you to both, working for yourself is really about gaining the personal and creative freedom you crave. Entrepreneurs often go against the grain. They resist the 9-5 grind and instead strike out on their own to create something new.
Many believe that going it alone is risky. We’re taught to believe that working for someone else is safe, secure. But many times, the opposite is true. You can have much more success as an online entrepreneur than you’ve ever found in IRL (in real life). It’s been the case for me and so many women who have built our own communities online and created our own businesses from scratch. All you need is an idea and the drive to make it happen.
From blogging to infopreneurship, today, the digital entrepreneur has nearly limitless options. With dedication and the right strategy, there’s nothing you can’t do.
How I got started in web design.
The truth is, I stumbled into this web design thing. I started out helping families like ours to build their blogs and ended up pursuing a full-time career online.
With zero experience and less than a shoestring budget, I started my online business. It cost me a whopping $119.25. That bought me 12 full months of web hosting. Just enough time to try this out and see if I really had the chops for an web-based career. It took a lot of research and some serious hustle, but I’m here.
I like to joke that I taught myself web design through Google. And its true. I knew literally nothing about web design or blogging before I started my online journey, but I was determined to have a beautiful website and had zero budget for professional help so I taught myself web design.

Since my humble beginnings, I’ve helped many to evolve their blogs and businesses into highly successful online platforms. Together, we create powerful social campaigns and fresh, innovative, niche-focused websites.
I’ve been lucky to work with passionate people, who are ambitious and values-driven. And I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of their success and growth, helping some truly amazing individuals to build socially and culturally relevant online brands.
Whether you’re launching a blog, a business or a new product, I’ll help you create the strategy you need to rally your audience and grow.
