The ladies from Village asked me to help with the branding of their new start-up which features services from before pregnancy through baby’s first year. Their ShowIt platform website offers free downloads for preparing life with your new family member as well as a list of their services and a blog! I adored working Michelle […]
I used to have a really tough time remembering to post on social media. I would get those reminders from Facebook saying, “your followers haven’t heard from you in a while.” I signed up for Tailwind, a social media content manager. It has made my life 1000x easier. Some content managers, like Tailwind, will schedule […]
It took me FOREVER to finally jump on board with HoneyBook. I did the trial, I let it expire and then I went back to my old ways. My old ways were time consuming and dated. One night, after working with clients all day, I was sitting down to start invoicing, tracking projects, and updating […]
Motivation for this week is simple. Don’t get in your own way. It’s easy to put your dreams aside for things that are going on presently. Always keep your dream in mind and work towards that goal. The hardest part about starting your own business is DECIDING that you are jumping in!
From my very first client, I realized how important it is to be organized when working on branding projects. Sifting through emails for documents sent by the client is not easy or fun. I started using branding boards for two reasons: 1. it was a fantastic way to have all of the key elements in […]
I get to work with some amazing women (and men) to achieve their business dreams; and everyday I think about the effect these people have had on my own life. Because of these people, I am able to work from my home. I’m able to do what I love to do and I’m able to […]
When I was younger it was hard for me to stay connected to what I was working on. After starting my own business, my ways changed. All of a sudden, no detail was too small and I began to want to make everything my version of perfect. At first, I thought I was nit-picking. However, […]
As I sit to write this post, I can barely control my excitement. So I’ll just jump right in. Transform. Everyday I work with clients to transform their business. I work up plans, coach on social media strategies and begin the branding process. 10 of the 12 years I’ve been in business, I’ve done this […]
Have you ever scrolled through Facebook and come across a post like, “Contact me, make $1000/week from home all you need is a ____!” Only to find out you have to shell out some serious cash in order to take on this “opportunity.” I feel like lately I’ve seen scams like this ALL over the place.
Okay, lets chit-chat about that resume. It has a bad rep – it is your first impression to a future employer and it seems like your whole world is riding on one piece of paper – no sweat! You wouldn’t naturally think that there were rules about what to and not-to include on your resume, […]
A client workflow sheet makes life as a designer (or any field where you work with clients), easier. When I bring on a new client, a workflow sheet is the first thing I grab. It helps keep the conversation with the client organized and makes it 100% easier for you to stay on track when […]
I haven’t done a font find in FOREVER. So lets start off the new year with a free collection. These are fonts you can find for free (links provided below) to download. Font browsing is one of my favorite past-times (is that sad?) I could spend hours looking at beautiful lettering. Finding the right font […]
In any relationship, communication is key. Communicating with your clients can be a daunting thought. Sometimes you get a client with exquisite communication skills, and other times your client may lack the description and timing of getting back to your inquiries. It’s important in both situations to stay professional in your exchanges and pay attention […]
