Yes yes yes!! Let's spend our energy and time on what matters this week!
The Brand Story ID and Guides. It's a favorite and satisfying part of the process!
You are more powerful than you think. It’s bigger than you. Leaders are made, not born. Leveling up is a choice. They say you can’t, we know you can. Dance with fear. See, assert, change. Overwhelmed is temporary. Out loud, in public. Hard work is far better than busy work. The crowd is wrong. The critics are wrong. Useful feedback is precious... Management matters. So does leadership... “Here, I made this.” Or possibly, “Here, we made this.” See the end before you begin the journey. Culture defeats everything. It’s personal. // Weekend words to remember by our friend @sethgodin.
We like to keep our Fridays available for wrapping up details and planning for the next week. How do you like to spend Friday?!
It’s another busy day here in the studio, but we are staying strong with lots of coffee (and treats)! Did you catch our blog post yesterday about staying motivated when you feel stuck? You’ve been here before - it feels familiar, this place of impending doom. That place where the inspiration starts to drift away, the caffeine crash sets in and you are just DONE. As you feel yourself getting to this place, recognize it. Call it out for what it is and don’t let it drown you. Link in bio to read more!
Let's be honest - running a business or even just simply working at a business can sometimes leave us feeling (and maybe even looking) like a hot mess. Some days are hard - like, give me five more cups of coffee hard. Rough days are normal, unproductive weeks WILL happen, but we need to learn to be okay with that because it doesn't mean our business is failing. On the blog, Bethany is sharing about what if we didn't have to sink down into the mindset of failure when we are having one of those days or weeks? What if we could see the situation for what it is, rise above and change it for the better? Link in bio to read more!
We don't need more hustle. We need more care and generosity. “ Our team is starting off our Monday thinking about this line from Seth Godin. It’s a good one. Hustle is over rated. Care and generosity is an investment into the future!
Lots of light in our studio! It used to be the home of a sewing factory. We love thinking about who used to work in the building and keeping the tradition of doing good work running strong in the space.
We love watching the incredible things that our clients do and the beautiful impact they make on their customers and communities! This shot is from @thechrisandclaudeco's most recent house makeover that you will literally want to spend the rest of your life in! Check out more about the house and see their incredible handiwork over at @railroadmastershouse! They are truly incredible people and we loved partnering with them to develop their story! And give three cheers because it's FRIDAY!!
Happy Wednesday! Summer is officially next week and we are so excited for it! Last week we gave you a little behind the scenes of our studio life and what it is really like for us - in all its messiness, laughter and spilled cups of coffee. Did you miss it? No worries!
