Design Business Rising
Design Business Rising
You want clients who pay you shit tons of money.
The kind of clients who trust everything that comes out of your mouth. Clients who discover that you're the best thing since sliced bread. Clients that will pay you for your genius.
But you don't have those kinds of clients.
Nope. You have the shitty clients who want you to discount yourself or they question everything you do. Or maybe you have a bunch of "maybe" clients who promise to hire you and never do. And the next week you see them hiring your competition. It hurts when that happens. But (are you ready for real talk?) YOU ASKED TO BE TREATED THAT WAY.
Because no one knows or even cares that your business exists.
Ouch. That hurt. But it's the truth.
You continue to try everything that's shiny and new. You throw your money down the drain on the latest guru, their latest course, try their new-fangled “strategy” for ten minutes, and then get pissed again because nothing fucking worked like they said it would.
Oh, and that guru? The one who swore they’d help you get where you needed to be? They’re too busy laughing their silly ass off on the way to the bank with your hard-earned money. Which ends up with you downing a bottle of wine while watching cat videos and rolling your eyes as you read about everyone else winning at life on Facebook. What the fuck, right? When is it YOUR TURN?
It doesn't have to be this way - you've heard this before, but it DOESN'T.
Right about now, you’re thinking “Oh, YAY, here comes the bullshit sales pitch.”
COME ON. We both knew this was coming, but since you're still reading I know you're interested. Yeah, it’s a sales pitch, but this is a bullshit-free zone, comrade.
I don't have a cutesy program to sell you with some airy-fairy immeasurable results that you won't be able to replicate.
I'm going to sell you something that will change your fucking life. You will buy it not because it’s coated in hashtags and glitter, but because you already know you need it.
Forget about the gurus, the cat videos, the crying into your Cabernet and read on...
If you're ready for a business awakening...
I will help you take your business from being a wallflower-wannabe-flirt to going bang-bang-all-the-way without becoming a cheap hussy.
Work with me for six weeks and I'm talking about making more money AND having more free time all without having to buy another little blue pill.
This Business Awakening isn't like anything you've ever seen before. This is called working smarter not harder thanks to some results-based, tried and very true online marketing methods. We will be taking all of the pieces of the puzzle - all of your ideas, all of your big ass dreams - and working together to make them HAPPEN.
And like, NOW - not after three years of blogging, not six months from now when you get your ass in gear and finish the last page of your site, and not when the social media gods smile on you and you get “discovered” (which, by the way, happens right after hell freezes over, so - FUCKING NEVER).
I mean the very day we do this thing? You’ll start to make the changes you need to take your business to the next level.
(Psst: I AM the proof in this pudding. This is all shit I use every single day in my own biz—so I know that it works. I won’t shove anything down your throat that I haven’t personally tested again and again myself.)

This Shit's for You If...

you’re not attracting your dream clients and you’ve got no clue how to find them, talk to them, let alone attract them
the idea of talking to someone who can help you make this shit happen like magic turns you on more than Jason Mamoa
you're not techy at all and want a website that you can update all by yourself once we're done getting down to business
your current online branding needs a major, professional upgrade
your wanna make sure your brand is unique + professional + shows off your style (that’s a tall order - but happens to be my specialty!)
you’re tired of having a patchy, all-over-the-place kinda brand with no real identity
you’re the upgrade-me-to-first-class, how ‘bout we order a JUMBO kinda gal - you don’t just want a piece; you wanna eat the whole cake (because this package covers it all)

you want someone to tweak your existing site - I prefer to work from scratch, not remix somebody else’s shit (even if it’s wonderful shit)
you want a website on another platform like Wordpress or Wix or Whatever
you live somewhere in the world that isn't the United States, Canada, United Kingdom or Australia
Frequently Asked Questions (aka Other Shit You Might Be Wondering)
What’s the TL;DR version of this?
I like to build interior design businesses using the strategies I’ve used in my own business. Basically, you’ll hire me to take your ideas for your design business and I’ll help you pull it all together by coming up with a profitable plan and a online presence that’s take your business to the next level.
How long does it take?
On el average-o, this process takes about 2 weeks.
Why should I pick you? What makes you different?
First off, I’ve been where you are. I’ve been creating websites since the Stone Age of the Internet and I had to create my own brand identity from the ground up. As a self-taught designer, I’ve learned it all from experience. I’ve discovered firsthand what works and what doesn’t work (aka: what attracts clients like bees to honey and what sends ‘em running for the hills).
What if we aren’t a perfect match?
Oh, yes - the million dollar question! This is why I'm happy to hop onto a FREE 15-minute consult before I even get near your website. If you and I feel like we’re a match made in design-heaven, you pay for your project (which means everybody else can hit the road, ‘cause you and I are about to go steady for the entire duration of your project). If down the road it feels like we’re not jivin’ how you’d like, no biggie - I will refund 50% of the fee.
How do I pay?
By credit card or PayPal.
Do your provide website hosting?
Hosting is included when you purchase your Squarespace website. You will sign up with them and choose the package that fits your business needs.
I live in a far-away land. Why can't you help me?
Because the interwebs are different in your far-away land.
This sounds cool but like...I don’t know what my design style is!
Don’t sweat it. Between our chat + my uber-tailored design questionnaire, we’ll really get to the nitty gritty of your style, all while having a fucking blast. Guaranteed.
Are you willing to work with elements I already have?
Yes and no. It’s possible we might be able to keep a few elements you reeaaallllly love from your current brand, but please come prepared to let go of elements that don’t fully serve the future of you + your brand.
