Elizabeth's Branding Session (Entrepreneur Spotlight)

One thing I have really truly enjoyed since moving to Nashville is being able to connect with other entrepreneurs! Everyone here has a side hustle and is more willing to invest in small businesses more than I have ever seen before. It is so inspiring and heart warming. Since offering my personal branding sessions I have been able to tell the stories of my fellow entrepreneurs through my photos and it has been so incredible! So incredible in fact that I have decided to start a series on the blog called “Entrepreneur Spotlight”. In these posts, I will share the stories of these amazing side hustlers, why they do what they do and why they got started.

How to get files ready for the printer

Hey there friends! Today over on my YouTube channel I am covering how to package your InDesign files and get them ready to send to the printer. As a graphic designer this is SUPER important to know, especially if you want to become your own graphic designer for your business. Unless you are setting up designs in Vistaprint, Moo or any other platform that lets you get hands on with the production side, making sure your files are correctly packaged is so important. If packaged correctly, these files will cause a lot less headaches and back and forth with the printer to get it right.

Learn something new with year with Audible

Hey there friends! I don’t know about you but in this new year I’m inspired to learn. If you don’t already know, last year I focused my year on a single word which was “LEARN”. (If you didn’t know that make sure you follow me on Instagram!) This year however, my word of the year is “GROW” which relates a lot to learn. You need to learn in order to grow and I’m taking everything I have learned last year and I am implementing it into my business this year. However, that doesn’t mean I stop learning! I have always believed in being a forever learner. I have mentioned before in previous posts how much I love podcasts, YouTube videos and reading lots and LOTS of books! There are so many resources out there for you to dive into and learn. The possibilities are endless! Unfortunately for most of us, we are so busy that we really don’t have time to sit and read a book or even watch a YouTube video in some cases. That is why I’m so happy to share Audible with you!

The struggles of imposter syndrome

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?

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.
