I’ve always known I was made for “more”. The fact that I was made for a specific purpose was never a question in my mind. I just KNEW it.
Do you feel that way? Do you feel like you were made for more than a mundane life and it’s your responsibility to live this one, short life to the fullest?
After working 10 years in both the corporate and freelance graphic design worlds, I decided that it was finally time to step out and start my own impactfulbusiness. You see, I’ve always been one to forge my own path. Working to build others dreams just wasn’t for me long-term.
So, I did it.
Actually, I did it for 10 long years… and I learned A LOT over that time. I learned the best ways to do things and I learned how not to do things. I had successes, I had failures, and I have tweaked my design process dramatically since I began 10 years ago.
And now, I design VERY differently than most designers. My programs are 100% unique and I believe it is both what sets me apart AND what my clients love about working with me.
You see, with me you can forget all of the standard “working-with-a-designer-headaches”. No more missed deadlines. No more poor communication. No more outcomes that you HATE because you 1) don’t know how to communicate your vision to your designer and 2) your designer doesn’t get your vision and goes rogue.
This past weekend my husband and I celebrated 5 years of marriage!
As I sit here looking back on these past 5 years, I am so thankful for the things the Lord has done in my life! A wonderful husband, a beautiful baby boy, being able to spend my time pouring into what I love, and sharing my gifts with other ladies while having the freedom to create my own schedule (and can I just say right here and now that this past week I started work at 11:00am every single day just because I wanted to… DREAM COME TRUE!).
I can’t even tell you how fortunate I am to be married to my biggest fan and best friend. SERIOUSLY. He supports me 100% and I’m going to share something a bit personal with you today. I hope he’s ok with it… haha! But this is a segment of a letter that Steven wrote to me on the last day of my corporate job that I now have framed above my desk…
Growing a Facebook group can be a GREAT way to build your following and grow your business. Today I am going to be sharing with you 7 secrets that I’ve learned over the last year of growing my Facebook group from 0 to 600 lovely ladies.
It all started with daily promoting and let me tell you THAT WAS EXHAUSTING. I would start conversations with new people each and every day and invite most of them to join my group. This would take me 15-45 minutes per day in conversation.
Finally, I decided that this wasn’t going to work for me long term. I changed my focus and began to focus that time on pouring into the ladies already in my group. I began to encourage engagement from the current members. I began to share my heart and create a space that was genuine and real. And you know what happened???
My group began to grow on its own!
I began to wake up to requests from ladies wanting to join each and every day… my group began to grow on autopilot! Want to know what I did to make this happen?
An email list is a GREAT way for you to grow your online business. If you want to be able to make more impact (and sales) with less time and effort, then an email list is a must.
So how does it work?
An email list basically gives you an avenue to promote your business to a group of people who are already interested in what you have to offer. But an email list is not something that should be done on a whim without any planning. It is not just about sending random emails to your list. A good and effective email list takes up front creating, tweaking, and testing.
The purpose of this blog post is to help you set up a well-functioning email list that will work for you, help you make more money in less time, and give you a growing number of followers to promote your business to.

If you are serious about DIYing your brand, then a mood board is the first step you should take. I know it may seem like a mood board is a wasted step, but it’s not!
A mood board helps you 1) visualize your brand before you set everything in “stone” and create the logo, website, and other visuals (a strong foundation is KEY!)… and 2) it serves as a tool you can provide with other designers down the road while they help you design more material for your business.
