So once upon a time I had a graphic design business and LOVED it. I did all kinds of things, but mostly for the digital scrapbook industry/community. I was very involved and I blogged very frequently and I was just so excited about that part of my life.
But as life continued (as it frequently does), change occurred and the digital scrapbook industry waned and I didn’t know what direction to go. I had some personal emotional struggles come through as well. I got overwhelmed and burned out and I began letting my blog/design go. I did do more local freelance work, (mostly in my church and mostly FREE work) and felt the “fun” and “love” of design go away. I found a little enjoyment here and there, but it was a struggle.
And then I “woke up” and realized what I wanted for my life. I began getting involved in some mind and body healing (still working on that) and made some goals. Some of that included finding the JOY in designing again. I have many steps to take, but I am learning and growing and am excited about my potential. So it may be a bit slowly coming, but I’m BACK. I’m ready to jump in and make some progress in my design business.
One of the things that is going to get me to that “happily ever after” is joining an amazing group to help me grow and learn and heal and produce and make progress!
If you love the process of CREATING – no matter what line of work/hobby you are in, but are maybe stuck in how to progress or just need some connection with people who are working towards growing and learning like you. I have an amazing community for you. I just joined myself, but I am so excited about all that it offers. It is a bit of an investment – but your business – YOU – deserve it. I deserve it and I have chosen to invest in it for me and my business. We all need connection in our lives and to find people who you can connect and grow with is amazing.
Please visit the Nourished Creative Collective to learn more and to join me in CREATING (this is an affiliate link-but I really strongly believe in this great community):
And if you join before September 30th, there are many amazing bonuses that you can receive!
Thanks all for being a part of my life and supporting me in my design business. Life is amazing!
