I may have lost my job due to the pandemic, but I followed my gut and babes it transformed my life.
In 2019 I had what I thought was my dream career. I’d worked on Broadway, on National Tours, at The Stratford Shakespeare Festival, among many other dreamy places and I couldn’t see myself stopping anytime soon. (And TBH) I wasn’t continuing because I was happy doing it! I was going to carry on because I had been told being an actor/dancer was the only thing I could ever be good at. I was told that because I had invested in it, I had to stick it out. Because I was told that if I ever challenged the idea that I could be something more, I was a big fat failure.
I realized that I was very unhappy in my career and had been for a while. I was tired of asking others if I was good enough to work, I was tired of never feeling fulfilled or supported, and I desperately wanted freedom to do what I wanted and be where I wanted to be while working the hours that I felt were manageable for me.
I tried on a lot of different pants before finally finding this gem (my gem) of a freelance career. And ho boy, do I love it.
Becoming a graphic and web designer is one of the things I was born to do. And I don’t mean to brag, but I am freaking great at it.
Best part? I get to do what I love, I give myself permission to value my worth, I work the hours I want to work, and I get to spend more time with my family.
In just three years of business I have worked with over 150 people all over North America. I’ve worked with writers, social media managers and life coaches, professional speakers, actors and studio owners, among many, many others. And my clients are INCREDIBLE. Their work inspires me and has been featured in The New York Times, The Globe and Mail, Oprah Magazine, HGTV, Netflix and many other impressive places.
My biggest brag is that my clients always walk away feeling represented, confident and most importantly they walk away EXCITED to share their URL with the world.
Who doesn’t want to immortalise their dog by naming their company after them!? Honestly, he deserves it. He’s such a good boy. And he represents everything I want this company to be, loving, guiding, kind and brave.
I want you to feel like your business is YOUR business: not a copycat of someone else’s. When you look at your designs, hand out your URL, wear your company t-shirts: my goal is to make you feel like you are sharing something you LOVE and are OBSESSED with and that you know NO ONE ELSE has.
There is no one else in the world like you; your business and the designs for your business should follow the same rule.
You’re ready to take your business from zero to hero
You’re ready to find your target audience and make them obsessed with you
You’re ready to give yourself permission to thrive
You have an excellent business idea but need the support to get it rolling
You’re ready to finally leave your 9-5
You’ve been sitting on launching your business and need one final push
You’ve had a site up for years but it no longer represents who you are and isn’t reaching the right people
You want your website to seamlessly work for you, be easy to update, and to stand out from the crowd
You’re ready to follow your gut and get the life you want
