Who are you?
A design boutique, passionate about all things design and marketing. Establishing the vision behind multi-phased design campaigns, effective solutions, and generally crushing it, style-wise.
Why Did you start your business?
I unexpectedly lost my job and instantly went into survival mode. I've been passionate and dedicated to the craft I've been perfecting since I could understand the word "goal." Working for myself had always been a dream of mine, but I had been afraid to take that step. I look back at when I lost my job and see it now as, gaining the courage to do what I really wanted to do with my career.
What makes your business unique?
Working within limited budgets and pride myself on never missing a deadline. My innovative drive has allowed me to gain experience growing client relationships, presenting and communicating highly conceptual ideas.
What's the biggest mistake you've made with your business and what did you learn from it??
Probably short changing myself and not paying as close attention to the whole financial part of it. I need to focus more on tracking time and costs.
what big goal do you have for your company and how do you plan to achieve it?
Keep it successful. I don't dream of owning my own agency anymore, but I want to keep busy enough to stay on track and retire this way. :)
what advice or tips do you have for people wanting to start their own business or follow their dreams?
If/when things don't look as bright as you had imagined them, don't feel like you are alone, don't give up on yourself, stay focused and positive. Life is a roller coaster, I think you know where it goes from there.
