That's me over there, Kerstin Begley, aka KB…
Your Website Creation Coach & Click By Click Tech Guide.
Born and raised in East Germany, I moved to Ireland, studied Journalism & Media Communication, landed a job at Ireland's National TV Channel, got married to an Irish man and had a baby. In that order.
We emigrated to Australia in 2009 with a 9-months old and a bun in the oven. Five years I turned my husband's business idea into a website and a now thriving business.
But not before we had a bad web designer nightmare situation, which cost us an arm & a leg only to have it crash on Day, when 400 fliers were sent out to invite people to our new site. This literally forced me to learn it myself. Overnight! Competing with the postman delivering those fliers.
Thing was, I had no clue about websites. Never mind creating one. Didn't even know what a button was. True story!
Fast forward a year, I played with WordPress, built a website on Weebly, dabbled in Wix. But when I came across Squarespace, I (finally) found what I was looking for all along. And I never looked back.
A few months after getting stuck into (and obsessed with) Squarespace, I became a Squarespace Circle Member and a short time later got accepted as a Squarespace Authorized Trainer.
People started to ask if I could show them how to do it. So I did. That's when my mission was born...
To enable and EMPOWER go-getters to build their own websites by showing them how to, click by click. Even if they're non-techie. And WITHOUT breaking the bank!
I help you get your very own website up & running AND show you HOW to make your own changes as you grow & your business evolves, so you don't have to hire a web designer ever again.
Even if you're NOT tech-savvy. And WITHOUT breaking the bank!

Born in East Germany (behind the wall)...
I was basically raised in the local library. My (foster) mum was a Librarian. So, my lifelong LOVE for reading and learning comes with no surprise. Books helped me escape ...
Years later I left Germany for Ireland, studied Journalism & Media Communication, worked at Ireland's National TV Broadcaster, got married to an Irish man, had a baby (in that order). And emigrated to Australia with bun #2 in the oven.
Here I'm now raising our two kids and two businesses, but there'll always have be a little place in my heart for Ireland.
In Australia I turned my husband's business idea into a business generating website and a now flourishing business.
Creating the site for him wasn't planned. All I ever knew was how to be a secretary. Apart from the usual stuff a PA does, I was non-techie and had no clue about websites. Never mind creating one!
But I had no choice.
The website that was done by a web designer we hired (costing us an arm and a leg), crashed the day we sent fliers to 400(!) kindergartens, inviting teachers (our target audience) to check out our new site. It was a total nightmare situation but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise...
Because it led me to where I am now. Helping and EMPOWERING others to take website control and build their own gorgeous sites, so they never have to pay a web designer ever again. Even if they're non-techie. And WITHOUT breaking the bank!
I love the good ol' belly laughs with good ol' friends, ALWAYS learning, reading and discovering new things (about myself and the Universe).
I love the Australian sunset by the beach (preferably with hubby, kids and fish & chips). And, in the little time that's left, I like to spend it with NETFLIX and a glass of red. Bliss!
