Office Hours

Starting in January, 2016, my regularly scheduled office hours at Smokey Row will be revamped:

Second Tuesday of the month – stays the same. I’ll be at Smokey Row (1910 Cottage Grove, Des Moines) from 9am – 11am to answer your questions about social media, starting your own business, networking, marketing, etc…FOR FREE!

Fourth Tuesday of the month – Google Hangout. In an attempt to reach those individuals who just can’t seem to get away from the office to meet, they can join a Google Hangout to get their questions answered. At 8:55am, I’ll share the video link to the Google Hangout via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Simply click the link if you’d like to join the Google Hangout.


Suzanne really knows her stuff when it comes to social media. She made it easy & fun! After just a couple of sessions working together to get a few things streamlined, I was anxious to get to work & felt confident in doing so! I would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone needing a "boost" to get their social media needs squared away. Thank you so much, Suzanne!!
