What is a Mayvin?

A maven (or mayvin) is an experienced, knowledgeable and trusted expert in a particular field who seeks to pass knowledge on to others.

That’s exactly what we do. We strive to learn and remain ahead of the curve with the ever-changing online world so we can share up-to-the-minute skills, tools and techniques with business owners.
