    Hi! I’m Pepper MAkepeace

    Anyone brave enough to give the entrepreneur thing a try is cool as sh*t in my book. I’m here to help you succeed!⁣

    My career path has been an inner expedition in search of meaning and fulfillment while shedding my ideas of what I was “supposed” to do with my life.⁣ When I finally mustered up the courage to launch my own coaching and web design business in 2008, it’s like I could finally breathe. ⁣Supporting others while honoring my values, utilizing my tech skills, and being creative – it’s been a dream come true.

    It feeds my soul to help solopreneurs grow their businesses through social media strategy, web design tools, and business planning.

    What Clients Are Saying

    “When schools closed abruptly because of Covid 19, we were faced with the daunting task of shifting all of our student and family communication to virtual platforms. Having Pepper on board made all the difference in the world. Her depth of understanding of the tech tools, ability to collaborate, responsiveness, and most of all, her vision for communicating information, have been invaluable to us. The Online Learning Portal she visioned and then created for us has been incredibly well-received and positions us to be stronger and more effective moving forward.”
    Anneke Radin-Snaith

    Director of Technology, Instruction, and Professional Development, Naples Central School District

    “I’ve worked with Pepper Makepeace on several projects for several different clients and I’ve been impressed every step of the way. Working with multiple clients means I need a team member who values communication and collaboration. Pepper’s ability to distill the tech world, and its constantly evolving elements, into useful and pertinent information is one of her most valuable traits. Turn around on design elements has always been quick and on time with any adjustments easy to discuss. I would highly recommend working with Pepper, especially if you’re ready to have a partner to build your web presence.”
    Heidi E. Johnson

    project manager + bookkeeper for creative folks

    “Pepper Makepeace is excellent to have in your corner because she is authentic and genuinely shares insights and information to help move your business forward. Discussions with Pepper are always thoughtful and provide actionable steps as well as encouragement. Having Pepper as a sounding board, coach, and champion during the past year has been fantastic. Without hesitation, I would recommend Pepper Makepeace as a coach or mentor to new entrepreneurs.”

    Stephanie Starck

    Pepper was responsive, patient, and she solved a problem that had been slowing me down for months—all in less than two hours. What a tremendous relief! I wish I had contacted her sooner. I will continue to seek out her support in my small business and would recommend her without reservation to others.”
