And, what you can learn from it to do the work you love and create a sustainable business or side hustle that has purpose
I’ve been a creative entrepreneur since 1998. I’ve been so fortunate to be able to do the work I love while making a living. And not just making a living, but living a life that I love! It's been a journey of constant learning, growth, and professional development.
I possess that elusive work/life balance that so many people can't seem to achieve. Yes, I have put in many hours. I have taken on many jobs that weren't my exact dream project. But I make sure that I see my children. I exercise. I spend time with my husband. I meet the tough deadlines and I create inspiring work for my clients.
Fortunately, my parents were both entrepreneurs so I learned early on that if you don't work, you don't eat. But paying the bills isn't the only important thing. Especially when you are creative. It's quality of life. Quality of work. Being able to say no every now and then to projects that you don't want to take and make a living (not just get by) from the work you love.
I've worked as a creative director, designer, stylist, creative consultant, and floral designer for all of my adult life so I've experienced many different challenges and I've always applied the same approach. I attribute my successes to having a plan in place, goals, knowing my strengths and weaknesses, knowing what I want, and recognizing when what I’m doing isn’t working.
This approach builds confidence — for you and for your client who is trusting in you to make their experience wonderful and worth the financial investment they are making.
I’m here help you achieve your goals and start making more than a living. I want to help you build a business that can support your dreams and you can live the life you love. It’s not complicated. It takes focus and I’m here to show you the way.
Depending on where you are with your business, planning, and finances I have a mentorship program that can help put you on the right path.
Having a mentor, someone who can look from the outside in with a fresh perspective and a great deal of experience will help you truly evaluate your goals and set you on the right path. Let’s do this together!
