I love working closely with each of my clients to help them ditch the overwhelm. Because let's be honest... building your own website and designing your own brand is not where you should be spending all your valuable time.
Want to know my favorite part of my job?
My favorite part of this job is the challenge I face of designing each and every website to be just as unique and full of life as each client.

There was a time not too long ago that I struggled each and every day. I hated my day job. I had a cluttered house that I was letting myself feel so guilty about. I felt like I wasn't being used to my full potential. I felt like there was SO MUCH MORE for me but I was constantly falling short.
I always knew my life had significant purpose. See, my mom and dad had a really hard time having children. I came into this world between a stilborn sibling and many miscarriages.
“Why me?”, was a thought that would float into my head for as long as I can remember. And because of that, I've never doubted that God had a plan for my life. I’ve always had a drive to live this one life to the fullest. And that starts with me stepping out and sharing with you…
You were made for more. Especially more than mundane. And that includes your business!
My entrepreneur journey has been long and hard. I've run an online business of some form for almost 7 years now, and spoiler alert... most of those years I was completely winging it. Full transparency: there has been a LOT of trial and error, a lot of hobby status thinking, many zero income months, and a lot of "failing"... starting over... and trying again.
Bu you know what I never did? I never gave up. And I think you've got that drive too.
Yes, I've "failed" many times.
Yes, I've had launches that NO ONE signed up for.
Yes, I've priced myself too low. Yes, I've priced myself too high. Yes, I've battled thoughts of "what should a Christian even charge in the first place?"
Yes, I've had people question my thinking. Question my motives. Question my character. Even question my faith in the name of "chasing dreams"...
But as @msrachelhollis puts it in her new book Girl, Wash Your Face...
"No one gets to tell you how big your dreams should be. "No" is not an answer. "No" is not a reason to stop. Instead, think if it as a detour or yield sign. "No" means "merge with caution". It reminds you to slow down. It reminds you to reevaluate where you are and to judge how the new position you're In can better prepare you for your destination. In other words, if you can't get through the front door, try the side window. And if the window is locked, maybe you slide down the chimney. "No" doesn't mean you stop... "No" means you just change your course in order to get you to your destination."
Why do I tell you all of this?
through her free Facebook group, through a strategy call we had completed months earlier, and through a few Facebook messages we had sent back and forth… she had been there supporting me from the side-lines the whole time. And once I realized I needed that one-on-one guidance and support, I signed up with Sandra immediately. Now it’s like a HUGE weight has been lifted off my shoulders!
I now feel like I have such a clear plan and I know what I need to get done each day to move myself forward. I don’t feel quite as overwhelmed as I used to and I feel so much more confident to step into my business truly owning my power… I can show up as the world-changing woman I’ve been created to be instead of playing it small.
