I Would Love to Hear From You

Say Hello!

Choosing a designer or a coach can be a very personal decision (not to mention a very big leap)! I am more than happy to answer your questions. I want you to feel like you’re making the best decision possible for your brand. Fill me in with what you’re dreaming up using this contact form and we’ll set up a call. 

Let’s stay connected, too! I’m always offering up inspiration and business growth tips through my blog and social channels. I’d love to get to know you there.

That moment, when your toddler asks you to create a masterpiece for her. So you do. And before you can even finish it, she says, “ mama, I want to wash it away! I want to make it disappear!”

Can’t business just be like this sometimes, too?

- Barely make a project live before the client decides they’re on to the next project.
- release something you love only to have it criticized.
- spend hours helping a client to have them decide they’re not ready.

Good thing there are always more clients. More projects. And more fun ideas!

On to the next masterpiece.

Imposter syndrome is real and it leads to things like:
▪ distraction
▪ procrastination
▪ self doubt
▪ feelings of failure/incompetence

And guess what? It’s totally normal.

Take a look at the 4 Stages of Competence model and determine where you’re at. Next time you feel imposter syndrome creeping in, just remember:
You’re learning!
You’re gaining competence.
You’re on your way to mastery.

…. and then you’ll start all over again with a new idea 😆

There is a LOT of content out there. Most of it telling you what you’re doing wrong. Or what is wrong with you.

So pause and take a minute today to tap into what you’re doing RIGHT, please.

Because reading all of that can make you feel like crap pretty quickly. There are many days I turn social media off because it just doesn’t make me FEEL good to scroll and read. What about you?

So just a reminder to anyone who needs to see it today … you’re doing better than you think you are. 💗

NOT knowing what I’m doing has made me an expert over the years.

I posted recently about this personal project I’m working on. We have this really awkward slant on our side yard that we’ve never done anything with. When we recently had our driveway worked on, I ended up with a bunch of extra pavers. I knew just what to do with them. I’m creating a sensory pathway for my daughter. Between my work hours and time with her, I’m doing little chunks at a time usually in the evenings. The only problem is … I have no idea how to build a stair-stepped walkway. Or a sensory pathway.

As I work on this project, it’s reminding me how I approach most projects.

1️⃣ start with an exciting (but big) idea
2️⃣ realize I have no idea what I’m doing
3️⃣ lay it out imperfectly just to get a visual
4️⃣ start to form a plan
5️⃣ do few steps with my new plan to test my theory
6️⃣ realize it’s not quite right and adjust
7️⃣ get into the hard work
8️⃣ refine as I go
9️⃣ let go of my need for perfection

I almost always do things the hard way. Then get better at it as I go and my brain smoothes out the process. But I would have never created anything if I didn’t just try it first.

I’ve used this when creating my:
- courses
- signature course
- workshops
- blogs
- creative projects for my daughter
- house projects

JUST TRYING (with no idea what I’m doing) has changed my life over the years. Just write down an outline and see what happens. What could you create by just trying?

When it comes to setting up your business, most everything is editable.

Step into the enjoyment of a new idea. Play with it. Don’t take it too seriously.

The joy is in the trial and error. Try your new idea on, explore what it’s meant to be formed into. If you mess up, edit it and try it again.

Testing of a new system doesn’t have to be stressful - it’s just that … a test. Enjoy the experience of learning something new.

Inviting clients to check out your new business or try your new offer doesn’t have to be scary or sale-sy. This is an exciting time of growth for you. Invitations or announcements need to be wrapped in a fun, joyful expression of who you are. That’s what the offer is after all … an expression of you and your brilliant ideas.

Way too often we throw out a great idea because it didn’t work the first time. If your people loved the concept, then pause, be honest with yourself about what did and didn’t work. Then, try again. Better this time. Have *more* fun with it. Deliver better results.

I almost always do something the hard way the first few times I put it out in the world. Then, I erase what didn’t work, edit it, and try it again. It’s been working for 20 years! ❤️ Don’t be so hard on yourself. Enjoy the playful process of entrepreneurship.
