I don’t know about you, but there were sometimes this year where I struggled with imposter syndrome. Who am I to pursue this career in running my own business? What makes me good enough to do this? I’m sure I’m not the only one with those thoughts. In fact I have talked to other entrepreneurs that felt the same way. The world has a way of making you feel that what you are doing isn’t worth a dime sometimes, and in no way is this blog post a way for me to complain about how hard it is to run a business. Yes, it is hard, but if things were easy everyone would be doing it. Everyone tends to have those moments of self doubt, I mean we are only human! It’s natural to feel that way. But you need to remember why you started this journey to begin with. What can you bring to the table other can’t?Read More
Having your pictures taken may seem like something that we cringe at the thought of, but take a moment and hear me out. Think back to a company you really liked, a company that you really connected with. Why did you connect with it so much? It is probably because you can see yourself in the brand, in the owner, etc. Those companies usually have a face to their brand. It makes people connect with their company on another level. Which then leads to loyalty to the company. What I am getting at is being a small business owner is hard, you don’t want to be another faceless business. You want to be able to connect with your customers or clients so they will want to invest in what you want to offer.Read More

Hey there friends! I wanted to write this blog post because, if you haven't noticed two weeks ago I launched my branding packages in my shop and I want to talk a little bit about them! First off if you don't already know, I am a full-time graphic designer and I wanted to share that side of me with you. Something that has been brought to my attention, is how hard it is to create your own branding, create your logo, know what colors to use, know what’s going to look right and just know the tips and tricks that a graphic designer would know but, a small business owner really wouldn’t know. I created these branding packages in hopes that they will help you and they will give you kind of a jump start on your branding experience. So for example, one of the branding packages I have is called AB Modern. It's a very modern style, very minimalist, black and white and can really be used for pretty much any business.Read More
I don't know about you but I LOVE podcasts. I was never the type of person for talk radio but there is just something about listening to someone as you walk, run, lift weights, drive and learn something! I believe in being a forever student and that you can always be learning. Podcasts are a great way to do that.
