Hi, my name is Tabitha Gallman and I am a freelance web designer providing Internet marketing services for small businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals. Well, at least that was the plan in the beginning. No, actually in the beginning I never anticipated sitting hours on end at my desk ignoring my family to pursue what I thought was a dream come true.
I have been providing an online presence for entrepreneurs and organizations through my web design business, Designs By Tabitha, since 2004. I have a background in accounting and administration, but after the birth of my second child my life changed course. I became self-taught in computer graphics and web design and began volunteering to do web design for my church. Soon after, other churches and non-profit organizations approached me for assistance with web design. As my relationships and referrals began to grow I decided to launch my business. I recognized that other entrepreneurs and non-profits needed an affordable, yet reliable way to market their message in an evolving technical world. I knew that in order to be successful I had to help others be successful. Little did I realize the toll this all had upon my family.
I finally came to my crossroad and recognized the two paths that lay ahead of me. One path would lead to more referrals, more work (which ultimately meant less revenue per hour since my rates were always "affordable"), and more stress. The other path would take me away from all that and full circle back to my family and doing what I love to do. I love to create and share just the way my creator intended from the beginning.
Today I am continuing to design and learning new approaches and techniques in my design work. The difference now is that I keep myself more in check with the time I spend away from my family and limit that time. I consider my time very valuable, so I use more discretion (and mostly prayers) when deciding what projects to work on.
I consider myself very fortunate to have such a loving and supportive husband of more than 24 years, and blessed to have two wonderful children that motivate and inpsire me to stay on the path less traveled.
If you have a need for marketing contact me and I will be happy to discuss your project.
