Not that I know of — I married into the name :)

When I started out (and as a matter of course ongoing), I cold pitched businesses on various platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and directly through their websites. Marketing is a huge part of being able to get clients right away and start working and growing.

If you just sit around and wait for people to find you, it will be a much slower and more frustrating path, as no one knows who you are, so why would they necessarily be searching for you?

I write on medium and have a website, but I do not typically do any real “marketing” on medium, it’s a source of leads and interaction, sure, but I try not to be straight up selling anything. I blog because I love it! And it serves as writing samples and a way to help people and give them useful information, which further reinforces my credibility.
