About Roxana Guy
I am Roxana Guy, the owner of Just Add That. I have known my entire life that I want to help people. The idea of sharing a sandwich with a random homeless person and having real conversation is the kind of things I live to do. But Just Add That isn't about the homeless or random charities. While I love to donate a portion of my cause to many charities and ministries, I created Just Add That because I knew there was more that had to be done.
I have loved reading, writing, and researching my entire life, too. I am the kind of person that if there is a problem, I am certain I will find a solution. Just Add That was a business dream I started 2 years ago. My goal was to teach others how to coupon and stretch that last dollar! As I began writing, I realized that couponing was nice and everything, but I wasn't generating a single dime. I spent 18 months researching and learning every way I could possibly make any money blogging. The more I researched, the more I realized that it wasn't the couponing I loved. It was blogging!
Friends and family started reaching out to me with their problems. Some were related to divorce. Some were money and business. But the more I talked with people, the more I knew I loved networking. Networking gave me the opportunity to keep learning more and reaching out to more people. The more I learned, the more I wanted to share with others.
I have a podcast called Just Add Chat, and I had several individuals reach out to me about one of my episodes discussing time management. The more we talked, the more I felt that I was ready to write a book to share with my audience.
Why do I want to help?
Blogging is easier for some people. And some people were born just knowing how businesses are run. But for others, like me, it doesn't come natural. With business, you have to work hard each and everyday. Over the years, I have learned it's easy to drown in your own self doubt. It's the worst feeling in the world. To be honest, I don't want another person to feel like that. I know what it's like to have a site and a dream and no one take you seriously. The hardest part about blogging is that often times, you find that you are alone.
I wanted Just Add That to be different, and I wanted to write books that really help others. When people come to my site or read my book, my goal is that they find the resources they're looking for and the community support they need. Writing high quality content is a big deal to me. It means that I am giving you my best because I want you to succeed.
There's already a huge number of websites out there giving you empty promises and providing you bad advice. How do I know this? Because these are the sites I spent 2 years following hoping I would get blood from a turnip. The reality is turnips just don't bleed. The only thing that has bled is myself from my hard work, sweat and tears. If I can keep another person from suffering like that, I will with my content, books and guides I offer.
I am so excited to finish my second book in the next few months! Until then, I'm looking forward to working with my next client...maybe you!
