Why I started Michelle Hatcher Media…
digital marketing for beginnersI’m often asked about what it is that Michelle Hatcher Media does. Sounds like a reasonable question!
Its an answer I trot out almost to the word… We offer courses, books and step by step guides to help people find independence and happiness in life.
Then I stop myself…
It’s what we do but not WHY we do it.
Years ago I started my first business. I focused on being the voice between those in society who couldn’t speak and the agencies who controlled the environment they lived in.
Because I knew what it was like to get ignored.
And this is how it began…
About twenty years ago I lived next door to drug dealers.
I was alone, with a baby and vulnerable and an easy target for entertainment.
I spent the next three years battling with local authorities. I was bullied night and day and the butt of every prank my neighbours put upon me for kicks.
Myself and my baby were spat at in the streets. We put up with loud music night at day, used needles thrown over the fence into my garden.
The worst was having human excrement pushed through my letter box.
Young stoned men using my letter box as a urinal. I had to nail my letter box shut and have another neighbour take my mail first me.
It was the darkest, most frightening three years of my life.
I did eventually get them moved after a long struggle to be heard by the council and the police but little did I realise, it was not over.
They were moved to a property a few streets away. My ordeal didn’t stop. My drugged up neighbours were out for revenge.
Next my car and house were targeted. My car would have its windows smashed almost nightly, eventually my insurance company refused to repair my car yet again and it had to get scrapped. My house was sprayed with graffiti in the middle of the night. My front door kicked repeatedly at night. Sick and urine on my porch.
And why? Because I was a single mother who stood up to them.
Since then each business, venture and project I have seen through has been in favour of the silent ones. The people who lacked support from anyone.
I have stood up for the vulnerable, the silent and the ones lacking in confidence, guidance and inspiration.
Digital marketing for beginners and signs of Aspergers syndrome have been no different.
These two projects have drawn me to work with some of the most incredibly talented people in the world today. We, together draw on our experiences to help the ordinary people in the world do extraordinary things in both their personal and professional lives.
That’s what we will continue to do for ever more…
Because we all deserve a life we can get proud of.
