Welcome

…a few of the things I’ve been working on:

Milani Facilitation

A new venture for me. I’ve teamed up with a worldwide network of facilitators who use stakeholder engagement activities, designed using systemic principles, to help leaders and organizations work with complexity. That’s a loaded statement as the activities and design of the consulting can have a wide range of applications, from culture change, innovation, business planning, community conflict, coherency mapping, and much more depending on the issues facing the client.

The premise is that each unique stakeholder, whether an employee, CEO, community member, etc, has a unique perspective and contribution to make towards understanding the issue. I specialize in designing a process that brings out their ideas and assessments of ideas, in a transparent, engaging, and action oriented way. milanifacilitation.com

Milani Searchworks

I’ve been managing client accounts on the web for the last 10 years, and since 2012, as a Google Certified Partner. As a GCP, I stay current on ¬†changes by passing their exams and have demonstrated above average performance. I currently manage Search Engine Marketing (SEM) campaigns using Google Adwords and Bing advertising. I also manage basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) campaigns — which sometimes get a bad reputation because there is a lot of spam regarding website SEO and shady tactics that can actually hurt website ranking, but there is also a minimum requirement if you want to get found on the web¬†and I specialize in building that strong foundation.

Travel Writing

My passion is to travel, especially extended backpacking trips. Two of my larger trips were through Central America and Southeast Asia, and for each, I wrote pretty extensively about the the places and the people I met along the way. My intention is to turn these these manuscripts into published works. nospanishnoplannoproblema.tumblr.com | offtosea.tumblr.com

Disc Golf Dojo

My latest little pet project is an affiliate marketing site for disc golf using Amazon Associates, but really it’s a place for me to organize information regarding disc golf and make it easier for people to find discs, baskets, and accessories, along with information for disc golfers on how to improve their game. It’s a growing sport and I love to play, but I recognize that I can get better, so it’s pushing me to do that. discgolfdojo.com
