When you're the one marketing person, you need more support than a Google search.

Your new work besties are ready to support you... along with practical training, templates, planning workshops & more.

Your Support is Here

As seen on:

When you're expected to be the expert, you need support fast.

Sometimes you need a sounding board, sometimes you need a 5-min tech tutorial, and sometimes you need some serious skills training to grow in your career.

Google searches are too much.

Instead of going down the Google rabbit hole, ask your question in our forums to quickly get the best info, workarounds, and recommendations.

You don't know what you don't know.

You might not even know what questions to ask. You'll find out by engaging in the community forum! 

Not another freaking course.

You're busy. How about training in small chunks on exactly what's keeping you stuck instead of a full course?

We all need a super nerdy friend!

I spend my time staying up to date on the latest in marketing so you don't have to.

With 20 years of experience as an agency, consultant, and in-house marketer, my brain is ready for picking.

You're not alone!

I built this community to support the one-person marketers with hands-on training, a forum to ask questions, and accountability when you need it most.

Rel Vild

"Michelle is fantastic at keeping us moving along. Where we might stop and take a hiatus, she keeps gently pushing us along, and shows us what we need to know to keep improving."

Riah Gonzalez

"I was bleeding money in ineffective efforts to spread the word about our business. Before working with the Foundations First team, we were overworked in our marketing and confused about why nothing was working."

Tatum Garino

"Thanks to Michelle we've seen an increase in qualified leads, improved efficiency in content creation and planning thanks to our newly defined direction, and newfound confidence in what we’re putting out into the world."
