I am incredible at telling other peoples stories, after all that is why I chose marketing as my profession. Though I love telling stories, giving exceptional service, and serving my community I find I am not the best at putting my personal story to paper. Many people when asked to describe me in one word as a "Connector" I love connecting others to those who can best help them in their lives.
So hello, nice to meet you! My name is Reland, I am a connector and I have a story to share.
In 2016 I had my son Grayson, he was a super blessing because I wasn't supposed to be able to have kids because I have endometriosis. I won't go into the particular details of what Endometriosis is but feel free to google it after you finish reading this post! My pregnancy was brutal and I am not one of those women who think pregnancy is beautiful - waddling and not sleeping on my stomach is a rare form of torture. Fast forward Gray is my sunshine, I love the little guy to pieces he is the motivating force to everything I do. Our company is named after him!
My career has always been on the client-facing side of marketing. One of my career superpowers is customer service because again I love to connect with people. You simply cannot serve others if you are unable to connect with them. So I kept selling and working the traditional 9-5 life, but remember that little guy I love so much? He didn't get to see his mommy much because she was too busy connecting and trying to build a life for Grayson. Instead of being a wonderful mommy I was building the dreams of the companies I worked for.
So I had a moment of clarity and decided that when Gray goes to Kindergarten, Mommy goes to Kindergarten! I spent time trying to determine my zone of genius. One day I was scrolling through Instagram and saw an ad. Lightbulbs started going off - I know how to create and build ads, I know sales funnels, I know how to give incredible customer service and sell. I CAN DO THIS!
I created Gray Digital Marketing to be able to still service others and help them reach their target audience. By doing so my clients get the opportunity to accomplish their own dreams and goals. Owing Gray Digital gives me the ability to be the very best mommy I can be to Gray!
I love learning more about others so if you are reading this go ahead leave a comment and share your story. Or you can send me an email at Reland@graydigitalmktg.com
