I started all of this for one reason. To make other businesses feel EMPOWERED. I remember starting out. I didn't know who to turn to for advice or help starting up. I come from a family of scientists, and well - let's just say I shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a lab...
So this design thing was all new, and I'm not sure I even understood the impact at the time. But I learned. & that's why I do what I do now, to help those who might find all of this scary, and might even be holding back because of it. Fact is, it's NOT scary, it can be done, and I'm here to help!
I chose my major before stepping into college. I was sure I was going to do something in music producing. Well, guess what? If you want to go into music, you should know something about it, and well, I didn't. So, I panicked and signed up for an open class: INTRO TO GRAPHIC DESIGN. Okay, I was good with computers this shouldn't be too terrible...
It wasn't terrible, it was MAGNIFICENT!
I graduated and started work immediately in NYC at some major fashion publications. I was living my dream. Until one day, I was leaving a meeting and I felt stuck.
I remember sitting at a desk and thinking,
And I'm happy to encourage you,
even if you're not a client.
And that's when it happened. I did a quick talk with my family and quit my job. I started a studio in the guest room and started my first business. I was terrified, but I jumped in - more like a cannon-ball. I empowered myself and now I'm here to help empower YOU!
