Owning your own business is fun! I get to work in my pajamas if I want, I can take a vacation whenever I can afford it and I can take on the clients that fit well with my personality. Those are often things that don’t happen at an office job. But with an office job
This post is sort of a preface to the one scheduled for tomorrow. Tomorrow I’ll be talking about finding clients as an entrepreneur. I’ve learned a lot about the subject over the last few years but especially so within the past couple months. But I took a break while writing that post to think through
After polling all of you guys in my survey last week, I found that many of you want insight into being self-employed and how I handle certain aspects! It’s definitely something that I’ve been wanting to do and so I’m glad you all want to see it as well! The first post will be all
When Adam and I started working together full-time, syncing our calendars was one of the first things that we did. It was sort of a debacle. I honestly don’t even know how we did it but it went a little something like this: We had years of synced calendars through iCal We wanted to switch
Did you know that my husband and I own a company called The Wonder Jam? We help individuals and small businesses build their brand, get a little goofy + highlight how they’re unique. Here are a few examples of our current client work. We gravitate towards people who do what they love. Because we love what
A year ago today I started a business. On my own. I still don’t know what it is or what it’s going to become. But I like it. And I hope for many more years to come.
For those that don’t know (or maybe you’ve recently started stopping by this space), Adam and I own our own business together. We’re partners in every sense of the word and I love it. Those that work in marketing/design can often talk about it vaguely. It’s hard for people to even know what they really
Yesterday (while running on only a few hours of sleep) I decided to work ON my business(es) instead of IN my business(es). It’s a great piece of advice. One that I often hear on the internets but don’t ever do. Adam and I began working together full-time this spring and it’s been a pretty huge adjustment. I quit
We are so excited to share our Haute Blog video + photos from our Columbus workshop! The video was made by the awesome Benji Robinson! All photos below were taken by me! To start the morning off, we had a table set up with cupcakes, donuts, candy, coffee and mimosas for a late morning snack and
Today I’m over on Eva Black’s blog sharing photos of my creative space! So honored to be featured. I love everything Eva touches! Happy Memorial Day!
These days, the word marriage usually comes with negative connotations. Stereotypes of boring couples who don’t even like each other. I just don’t get it. Luckily, neither does my husband Adam. Our marriage is comprised of so many things: collaborators, co-conspirators, best friends, partners + lovers. He’s the only person I never tire of, the only
We’re in the process of compiling all of our official photos and videos from our first Haute Blog workshop but I had to share some teasers! The workshop went SO well and we’re excited to be expanding to Indianapolis this July. Haute Blog is a workshop designed to help women launch their self-hosted WordPress blog
Yesterday we met up with some of our favorite people to film a secret project. We’re hoping to share it early May so keep your eyes peeled. Happy Friday, pals. I am freaking exhausted and can’t wait to SLEEP this weekend. Also, this space will be getting a bit of a refresher so check back
Yesterday one of my favorite clients sent me a text message with a screenshot of their logo. After taking a closer look, I realized that it wasn’t really their logo but a rip off of the one that I had designed for them last year. My heart started beating fast and after calling her I
There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. – Anais Nin I had this quote written in my journal all throughout college. I would read it, quite literally, every day. I didn’t really know what it meant but I knew
I’m so excited to share this project with you all today! Erika and I have been planning and planning and planning and it’s nice to finally share our idea with everyone! Haute Blog is a blogging 101 workshop for women who want to establish an online identity for themselves. We’ve taken the guess work out of
I don’t drink alcohol much. If I do, it’s an occasional glass of wine or for a special event. Instead, I find myself gathering, collaborating and meeting over coffee. Most of us do (especially those who use coffee shops as meeting spots). I recently began collaborating with David Sherry and even though I can’t show
Today over on Considering You, I’m sharing what a normal day looks like for me! Read it. Also, I stayed up SUPER late designing and helping Adam re-launch his blog! Check it out.
