initial client calls are probably one of my favorite things. there’s something so special about having that person-to-person connection over the phone that you’ll never be able to get over email. for me, it’s where the magic starts — when you can hear the excitement, passion, and drive in someone’s voice as they tell you why they are starting their brand + what they hope to accomplish in the world. it gets me excited, it gets my adrenaline pumping, and my creativity going. because, we’re all in this together. and i want to see the dreams of my clients come into fruition just as much as they do. so, yeah, people think they’re hiring just a designer— but they’re getting a cheerleader, too!! ;) _ needless to say, after my initial call with chelsie from @hellogirlcode — i was SO DANG excited about her vision and the why behind what she’s doing. ;) more details to come. ya’ll are gonna love what this girlfriend is up to. but, until then — here’s a peek at the mood of the brand. #futureisfemale _ #thirdstoryapartment #thirdstorymood #showiteer #girlbossbranding #branding #brandidentity #smallbusiness #graphicdesign #creativehappenings
you may feel unqualified for the dream you have. everyday, you may think of another reason why you are unfitting to carry it out. perhaps you tell yourself that you’re not strong enough, you are not creative enough, you don’t have the education you need, you don’t have the connections, you don’t have the following on instagram that everyone has. you may tell yourself that someone else would be better for the job and more skilled to carry out the dream that you have. 🌹 but here’s the thing— while you may feel unqualified, you are not. if it’s your dream, that’s the only qualifying factor that matters. right now, you have to decide that you are going to wrestle with the emotions that flood your mind and win. ❤️ whether you believe it everyday or not, tell yourself “i’m qualified. i’m good enough. i’m strong enough.” 🍷 because the ugly truth is, if you don’t wrestle with these emotions now — you’ll wrestle with them your whole life. the ideas of being unqualified will haunt you until you are old and grey unless you take the time to win the battle of the mind. right now, say it — “i’m qualified.” you don’t have to believe it just yet, but if you tell yourself this everyday — one day, you’ll wake up and believe it. 💃🏼 YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO CARRY OUT YOUR DREAM, friend. don’t doubt it for one second. the dream was given to you. you’re the perfect person for the job. _ #theeverydaygirl #writersofIG #peptothetalk #beingboss #createdtocreate #girlboss #bloomyellow #empoweringwomennow #womenwhowork _ 💫#madeinpeerspace 👉🏼 link in bio for details on how to rent this @peerspace.
color crushing on a saturday! (and also, crushing on these shoes — let’s be honest! 😻) _ FYI: the @pantone app is seriously one of my favorite resources. it’s so easy to find color inspiration online, but, pantone’s app makes it so easy to determine each color and transform it into a palette. high recommend it. _ p.s. if you haven’t already, go download the free “noticed like neon” workbook (link in bio)! if you are in the process of building your own brand, you might find it incredibly useful. i break down the top 8 elements you ought to be incorporating into your brand so that your idea gets noticed and goes viral. obviously, color is one of the 8. 🌟 _ #thirdstoryapartment #pantone2018 #pantonecolors #brandingdesign #webdesigner #showiteer #girlbosses
