Years Of Strategic Advising
AKA Dr. Lisa

Hi! I'm Dr. Lisa Richardson

After getting let go from my job while I was being hospitalized from the ER to have my younger son – nearly 2 months early – I was stuck.

After a good WTF meltdown (and a healthy delivery), I dusted myself off and built myself a freelance web design business. 13 years later, we’ve evolved into a digital marketing agency with many happy clients and a reputation I’m really proud of.

So, what do you get when you hire me as your marketing operations consultant, to speak at your event, or teach that workshop?

You get real behavior changes.

You get to see what can happen when you stop mistaking slavery for service.

You also get anime t-shirts and occasionally classic hip hop dance battles.

Your organization relies on core tech tools & systems. The more you understand them, the better off your business will be.

Your marketing. Your service delivery. Your donor relationships. Your capital campaigns. Guided by my #opsandauthority strategies – starring you.

Reach out, and let’s talk future.

Fast Facts

Mom. Geek. Leader.

Yep, Dr. Lisa Richardson is ‘really a doctor.’ (Southern Miss 2011)

My study area was higher education administration, with a focus on instructional technology. Specifically, the accessibility & usability of online learning platforms. I’ve spoken at international conferences like the Online Learning Consortium on the topic and now advise edupreneurs on best practices in growing their brand authority and businesses.

I sit on the editorial board of the Educational Justice Journal, as well as on the board of a nonprofit dedicated to higher education for justice-impacted persons.

I’ve been a single parent of 2 awesome boys (now one teen & one man) for my entire entrepreneurship journey. A lot of advice for women about business and financial management comes from people who have a wage-earning spouse. My experience is different (though not unique), and it has colored the way I make decisions both as a parent and as a business owner.

I love the stories, the action, and the art. Bring on the epic fight scenes. Also, #CaptainYami

Connect with me directly (& less formally) via social. While I’m most often on Instagram & LinkedIn, you’ll find me nearly everywhere.
