I Caved: Here's a Look Inside My Enneagram

I Caved: Here's a Look Inside My Enneagram

For months, maybe even years, I had put off taking the Enneagram test. 

Everyone and their mother was talking about it, sharing their types and wings.    

Originally, it felt like a fad I wasn’t all that interested in. I mean, haven’t we all taken 500 of these types of tests already? They’re interesting for a day and then we forget about our results completely and move on with our lives.

Don’t get me wrong, I love personality tests just like any other Buzzfeed reading millennial, but the rebel in me didn’t want to succumb to the pressure of taking some long test that was going to tell me something I already knew. 

But, people kept talking about how genuinely helpful it was for them and how the information of their bests and worsts selves was eye-opening, so I eventually caved and took the test.

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at My Email Strategy

I have always known that my email list was important. 

You hear it all the time. Especially from big-name entrepreneurs. But, an email list feels daunting and impossible. Especially when you have to work on your Pinterest, Instagram, blog, finding clients and doing your taxes. 

In January, I decided it was time to start taking my email list seriously. 

Today, I want to share with you what I have done over the last nine months to start growing and nurturing my email list. 

Let’s jump into it.

Is Custom Branding or Pre-Made Branding Right for You?

Is Custom Branding or Pre-Made Branding Right for You?

You may be surprised to hear this, but I don’t believe every single business owner needs a custom brand. In fact, I consider it negligible for many business owners to invest a custom brand from the beginning. 

As a business owner myself, I understand how crucial it is to prioritize the profits of your business. When you are first getting started, it doesn’t make sense to invest thousands of dollars into a business when you have zero proof of concept.

So, if you’ve been on the fence about investing in a brand designer or purchasing a pre-made brand kit, this post is for you!

An Introduction to Squarespace Version 7.1

An Introduction to Squarespace Version 7.1

Squarespace has made one of the most significant updates in recent history with Squarespace Version 7.1

This new version is only available as early access at this time, but as a Squarespace Circle member, I was able to get access to look around the new platform.

I spent some time working with the latest version and compiled my thoughts on what works, what doesn’t and how you can get started with Version 7.1.

FREE Inspiration Board Templates to Inspire Your Brand Design

Inspiration boards are at the core of every brand that I create. 

An inspiration board is the jumping off point for the visual direction of your brand. The inspiration board helps you navigate the direction of your logo, pattern, typography and collateral items. 

When you use an inspiration board to inspire each element of your brand, you are able to create something cohesive and on-brand with ease every single time. 

Today, I wanted to share with you a few inspiration boards that will help you to create your very own brand. 

I do want to note before you jump into the blog post, that I have categorized these inspiration boards and shared a little bit behind-the-scenes of what I had in mind while curating the inspiration board. This by no means a craft blogger can/should only use the craft blogging inspiration board. Feel free to select any that fits your brand and business!
