So here’s the scoop. I began my online service based business back in 2009. In the beginning I started out as a virtual assistant and quickly transitioned into a full-time social media manager as social was just starting to take off. I spent a lot of time helping busy business owners set up their social media, plan out their marketing, managed their communities and of course kept their social presence active online.
Over time things began to shift and I felt it was more important for the authors, coaches and biz owners I was working with to actively engage as themselves with their communities online. I took a step back from engagement and became their social coach/consultant. During this time I have blogged on two blogs for over ten years. This one, Social Media Help 4 U and Intentional Conscious Parenting, plus written numerous guest posts around the internet. I also wrote my first ebook about working from home. I’ve also co-authored two other books. One on Conscious Parenting with my bestie of 30+ years and one with a group of women. (We all became Best Selling Authors)
In 2017, I branched out and began working for Matt Chandler for Hemp Connex and fully immersed myself into the Hemp industry, learning a lot and making many connections. Matt’s business grew and transformed. My role went from social media manager to operations/customer service manager, amongst many other roles I played in his company. You can watch his recommendation video here. It is on my Facebook page. During this time I highly focused on the hemp industry, my writing and helping take care of our granddaughter.
In 2020 I have nearly come full circle. Myself along with my hubby ( A.K.A. Worlds Best Grandpa ) we still help out with our granddaughter. I work part-time with my Soul To Soul coaching clients, marketing clients and I build online courses in my extra time that help people enrich their lives. I love humanity, even in its turmoil as we navigate a new paradigm shift. To learn more about my books, my coaching or how to connect on social, head on over to my Coaching With Carol Page.

I would like to take a moment to thank a very special someone – Carol Lawrence walked into my world when I was in desperate need of help with my social media. Running a successful social media campaign takes talent and dedication. I have one but not the other. She has found a way to express my love & passion for all things furry & helps me to stay connected. She is also a great resource to bounce ideas off of and has one heck of an adorable fur family. If you are in need of social media rescuing, then I highly recommend giving her a call. You will NOT be disappointed. Thank you so very much Carol – You rock! ~ Veronica Glynn, One Dog Organic Bakery
Dear Carol, You have been an invaluable member of my team. Thank you for everything! A couple of years ago, when I started my transition from a “doc in the office” to a public figure, I had almost no knowledge of social media. All I knew was that I needed someone who understood the difference between selling widgets over the internet, versus helping me to develop my on-line professional image. It took me a bit of searching before I found you, and my search paid off: You have been diligent, detail-oriented, patient with my shortcomings (of which I have many), and you provided exactly what I needed in terms of services. You have also been a great teacher, willingly sharing your expertise with me. Thanks for everything, and I know you will still have my back, if I need to turn to you again in the future. I’m happy to recommend you in the highest terms. When I was in academic medicine, the highest praise I would give a colleague was “I trust them with my data.” In your case, I trusted you with my good name – and I am glad that I did.

Carol is very knowledgeable about Social-media. She is also a reliable resource. Being a small team with a lot of things to do, and social-media being a channel which can consume quite a good amount of your bandwidth, we were looking for someone with a strong expertise and who can also meet our targets. Carol fit the bill very well. We increased our organic followers on twitter by 50% when Carol was handling our channels. Carol would be a reliable resource for anyone who wants to scale up their social-media.

In additional to her wealth of knowledge and experience, Carol is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Carol to anyone needing assistance with social media marketing.

Carol and her company, Social Media Help 4U, has been working with us and our two websites for about 9 months. We have two quite different websites. The Christmas site is high energy and very seasonal, while the garden site is low key and has year around appeal. We chose Carol because she works with authors, individuals and small companies like ours and because, she and everything about her, displays strong moral values and high integrity. Carol got results for us, and quickly. Her strategies, efforts and advice this year, have helped us to achieve one of our best selling and profit years so far.
