Bold Business Works has been around since 2009 when Deborah Gallant integrated her many business ventures under one powerful brand. By combining her coaching practice (formerly known as Lifework Catalyst) with her do-it-yourself website builder (Web Power Tools), entrepreneurs can now find all the training, support and tools for success in one place.
Web Power Tools was originally founded in 2006: Deborah teamed up with Kevin McGillivray, a business technology consultant to create a system to allow solo professionals to build and update their own websites. Over 200 coaches, consultants, therapists, healers and many others use our site builder, which we now call Bold Business Tools.
Bold Business Works deploys a professional network that includes graphic designers, attorneys, finance professionals, search engine marketers and many others.
