Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, I (Roxanne, the one of the left in the image above) worked at a Destination Marketing Organization in a Business Development position I loved. When the pandemic decemated my entire portfolio (meetings, conventions, event festival and sport) in March of 2020 I was truly devastated. Like so many others around the globe I had to ‘pivot’ my career, and from my own personal ‘pivot’ Boom Business Solutions was born. On December 1, 2020 the Boom website was launched and I’ve been working hard behind the scenes to create authentic and meaningful services for entrepreneurs since. Now Boom not only provides the digital marketing and virtual assistant services I launched the company with, we’ve also undergone two division expansions in our first 1.5 years of operation: Boom People Solutions (HR Consulting Services) and Boom Graphics (graphic design services tailored to the needs of our clients).
While launch day in December 2020 was exciting, February 1, 2022 was the most exciting day Boom Business Solutions has had to date – the day we launched Boom People Solutions and Joanna McKamey-Martin jointed the Boom team (on the right in the image above).
As a Human Resources professional with 15+ years HR experience, Joanna provides our clients with HR consulting services tailored to the needs of each client’s workforce. Joanna’s previous experience in natural resources, construction and union employment provide an immeasurable amount of knowledge and expertise for any small business we have the pleasure of working with.
Fast forward to today; Joanna and I are both lucky enough to focus on the parts of our previous positions we enjoyed the most and combine those skills with the experience and knowledge we’ve gathered throughout our working careers. The best part is that we get to work with those courageous and driven enough to be entrepreneurs, have small businesses of their own, or work for themselves.
Why Was Boom Created?
Boom was created to alleviate the workload small businesses and entrepreneurs endure. We are also entrepreneurs – so we understand what you need to get the jobs (many many jobs) done. We admire just how brave and tenacious entrepreneurs are, working for yourself and or owning a small business is not for the faint of heart, but we are here to make those tough and overwhelming workloads a little more manageable.
