A reminder from 👆🏽me to👇🏽 you. • You’re exactly where you are supposed to be. All of that restlessness, doubt, and worry will all make sense real soon! • So, do this for me right now : take a breath, look up at that big blue sky (or office ceiling and pretend it’s a big blue sky), and remind yourself.. “I am supposed to be here. I’m in no rush. I’m..on the cusp of SOMETHING GOOD”! • But hey, don’t say all of this out loud... your co workers may stare 🙄
The other week I had the chance to get to know one of brightest rays of ☀️ there ever was. A fabulous designer, mother, and wife... @quingwinn inspires me to wake up early 😆 and to spread joy here, there, and everywhere • Get to know her too via the link in my bio 📝 @tothshopcreates
One of the first songs I learned on the guitar was Sunday Morning by Maroon 5. I chose this over more standard guitar tunes because ever since I was a little girl, I’ve wanted to jump to the tenth step and skip over the first less appealing baby steps. • Fast forward twelve years..I still fight this habit today, but I also understand it. Being a business owner was kind of a wake up call for me. • Skipping steps of any size will slow you down in the long run. You realize over time you’re missing pieces to your puzzle... or that you don’t know how to actually read guitar tabs 🤨 • Y’all, I am SO happy I’m able to share my own lessons with other biz owners. Sitting down with them before we shoot and cranking out those questions that take us back to the root of it all is one of my favorite parts. I find it’s also a beautiful takeaway for my peeps too! • So here’s to Maroon 5 for being in my head every Sunday and for taking our time in our life + biz so that we can keep taking the RIGHT steps forward 💕
Let’s talk about releasing something you’re passionate about into into the world. • Cue the butterflies, nervous anxious excitement, and desire to hide under a rock. • Whether it’s launching a product or business or ultimately just sharing a piece of your heart with the universe - it’s only normal to feel scared. BUT really- you’re not feeling that way because you’re nervous it’s not going to succeed ✨ you’re feeling that way because you care about it so damn much! • So from my corner of my side of town to yours, wherever that may be, you’re not alone. You’re not going to fail. You’re at the starting line of a race - feeling like all eyes are on you when in reality you’re just strides away from winning and finishing out the next chapter of your story. The only one in your way is.. well, you.
As giggly as we may appear.. @meg_seitz + I mean serious business when we say.. it’s time for an INTERVENTION. • There’s A LOT of buzz about branding going on right now. And we get it. Branding is the language, pictures, graphic design, - the look, vibe, power - you want someone to feel when they experience you or your business. • What we’re hearing, seeing, and have learned in our own entrepreneurial journey is that business owners dive in and just start doing the work - and skipping... the BRAND. (You’re not weird. You have bills to pay. Who’s worried about a brand at that point?!) In doing that though, you get busy - and never go back to it. Now, you’re XX years in, and you still see yourself as just a business. • We want your brand as strong and powerful as it could possibly be. So much so that someone who knows your business, sees something, and says, “Hey - that’s totally so-and-so’s brand.” • Thanks to our supporters + bffs at @hyggeclt, we’ve been given the space AND voice to talk about everything we know about branding - with - YOU. • Join us for a two-part Brand Intervention - we’ll kick it off with favorite lessons that are pure #Branding101, but then we’ll unleash everything we’ve figured out about consistent and confident brand language, culture, photography; then - part two! You’ll return with completed homework, questions, brand identities; we’ll work with you 1:1 and talk you through our branding tricks for how it can play out in one of this world’s favorite tools - a content calendar 📆 👏🏼. • There’s MORE too. @hyggeclt is giving away TWO tickets to this PARTY! Visit the link in my bio to get more detes and definitely enter the contest to try and win a free seat first. • I’ll leave you with this - your business deserves this, your brand deserves this, and you.. my hardworking late into the night + early every morning friend, you deserve this most of all! We can’t wait to meet you.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of “What is everyone else doing?” This week I want you to ask yourself... “What is everyone else NOT doing?” 🤔 This weeks mantra: Stay true to you (boo) 🤗 My absolute FAVORITE part about the visual brand work that I do is honing in on what makes EACH client unique💖 In short - the answer to standing out is easier than you think.
