AlaiaWilliams.com – Change isn’t easy.

Welcome (back) to AlaiaWilliams.com!
This site was originally launched several years ago with the intent of being a portfolio site that I’d direct people to when I was looking for jobs and writing gigs. I let it die and then resurrected it back in 2010 as a site where I could dump my personal musings (everything business related could be found on OneOrganizedBusiness.com ). I let that die too. Even though I’d been a blogger since 2000, I found maintaining two blogs tiresome. I suppose you could blame my work, but I like things streamlined – separating my thoughts and trying to build two different audiences was simply more than I wanted to deal with.
What I wanted was a place that could be the hub that pointed people to (almost) everything I do. I tried making everything fit under One Organized Business. Then I thought of adopting the branding of my networking group, The Entrepreneur Connection, but that wasn’t a perfect fit either. A couple of years and way too much thinking later, I realized that everything I was putting effort into pointed back to ME, and as awkward as it felt, I should embrace it. And so, AlaiaWilliams.com was reborn.
As I explained to a few trusted colleagues, One Organized Business was the first thing I created, as an adult, that was mine. My idea, my business, my baby. So, I found it hard to “abandon” the company I created in favor of a new URL, new site design, and (most difficult of all) a new email address. But really, it was time for a leap.
As many solo entrepreneurs know, the connections we make with our clients are very personal and direct. If everything stayed the same, but my business had been called Music Loving Dance Fairy, I’m sure it would have raised a few eyebrows, but my clients still would have paid me if I could deliver the same results.
So now on AlaiaWilliams.com you’ll find:
- information on who I am.
- the lowdown on how you can work with me or invite me to speak at your next event.
- a list of upcoming events I’m either producing, speaking at, or supporting.
- my blog, which will share my business advice and insights, interviews, product reviews and giveaways, tales of my travels, Los Angeles area happenings and, because I can’t control myself, YouTube videos or Spotify playlists that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
- how you can get in touch with me if you want to stay connected, collaborate on a project, or praise my impeccable taste in music.
Thanks for stopping by!
