IT'S BUSINESS TIME, YO

You guys. Big news to share today: IT'S BUSINESS TIME!

What does that mean, you ask? Do you need business socks? Well lemme tell you:

Tiffany, Michelle, and I are SO thrilled to announce we're now accepting applications for It's Business Time, our 6-month coaching, branding, and design program dedicated to helping you claim your biz idea and create the platform to authentically offer it to the world.

If you've been thinking about starting a biz or you have a business but it's just not quite working (yep I've totally been there, guys), It's Business Time will give you the clarity, structure, and accountability to make it happen. No more messing around.

After spending 6 months with us, you’ll walk away with everything you'll need - a mission statement, offerings, a custom logo, and a website - to bring your business to life and hit the ground running.

I am crazy excited to be a part of this and help others start an online business. I mean, I was there! I am there! All three of us walk the online biz walk. Three years ago I didn't even think owning my own business and creating my own success was possible. But here I am. It's humbling and exhilarating and I cannot wait to help others do the same. Ah!

The program starts March 30th. There are only 10 spots available. Our acceptances will be on a rolling basis, so get your application in sooner rather than later. There's no obligation to apply. So why not, eh?

This is the year for BIG things. I can feel it. And I can't wait.

Erin

BEFORE THE DESIGN BEGINS

before-the-design

Designing a new logo or website for your business is hands down one of the most exciting processes you'll ever go through as an online entrepreneur. Ya know, other than your first sale, your next sale - okay all the sales - and always having the freedom to take a nap after lunch. Cuz you CAN. Although I'm 3 years in and I never have! I'm such a mean boss...

While the design process is super exciting, there are two very key elements that must be worked out before the designing ever begins; before the pixels hit the page - ha! If the following puzzle pieces are in place for your business, the design process will be pure. magic.

Your WHAT: get clear on your vision for your business.

What is your dream for your business? Knowing what you do and how you want to turn your ideas into offerings is huge. I didn't find that clarity for a good 2 years into my business. I took the very organic, it'll-find-me route...

Your WHY: clearly define your brand.

What's your mission statement? What are your values? How are you doing it differently than the other guys? After you pinpoint your vision and what your business does, it's time to ask how to define your vision so that your ideal clients will take notice.

Knowing the answers to these seemingly simple questions is, well, everything right? Because the info above? Your what and your why? That's what makes your business, your business. It's the heart, the soul, the core. Only then can you tackle the HOW - the design and the website - in a way that truly resonates with you and that sweet, sweet biz of yours.

Boom shakalaka(the sound awesome design makes).
