Misty Molloy just graduated from 90 Day Business Launch less than three months ago, & has already landed her first big client and had a big feature in a local magazine! I dare you to head to The Co-Creative Home and not swoon over her talent and aesthetic (the staircase featured at the bottom of her homepage whaaaaaat?!), and then realize her differentiator: that she’s here to work with her clients to organize and design their homes. I mean, do we love it or do we love it? Obviously, we love it – and you’re gonna love her, too, once you’re done reading her Client Case Study!
Why did you decide to work with me?
I heard you on a podcast, and your personality, vibe and enthusiasm spoke directly to my soul. When you used the word “multi-passionate creative” and described her as someone who wanted a business but couldn’t decide which path to take, I knew I had found the coach I’d been unknowingly hoping to find.
What were you doing work-wise when we started working together – and what are you doing now?
I am a Brand Partnership Director for an e-commerce company and work part-time hours exclusively from home. I am so fortunate to have this role because it offers support as I launch, and the skills I’ve gained will be invaluable for my entrepreneurial venture.
What was your biggest takeaway from our work together?
Learning to go with the flow and drop the crystal ball is my biggest takeaway from our work together. I have wanted to start my own business for SEVEN YEARS but struggled to gain traction with any of my ideas. Once you taught me to listen to my heart and helped me see how my skill set and experience was relevant to the field of interior design, a flip switched.
Think of someone who is currently in the shoes you wore when we first started working together. What advice do you have for her?
If you’ve been wanting to start a business but can’t settle on an idea or figure out how to gain traction, get help. So many people would tell me, “Just start! You don’t need a plan, just go!” While I 100% agree with this sentiment, especially after having taken the leap and realizing that so much learning happens once you stop thinking and start doing, structure and accountability will give you the runway you need to get rolling.
Is there anything that’s been a game-changer for you when it comes to your business that you can share? We’d love a good resource or a mindset/productivity tip!
Own whatever new direction you decide to take. Assume the personality of a successful business woman and act confidently, even when you’re freaking out as you move forward. Take one step at a time, and don’t look too far to the future while you’re starting to avoid overwhelm.
What’s on the horizon for your business? We’d love to hear about any upcoming offerings or goals!
I am thrilled to have been featured in the January 2020 home edition of Lake Norman Currents, a magazine distributed to businesses and high-income families in the local community. I’m planning a launch party to celebrate the business opening and the article that will include a Wine & Design “Define Your Style” workshop component. I recently sold my first package for $1,000 and am looking forward to continuing to work with clients to further refine my offerings. I am aiming to serve ten clients by August 2020, when my son begins kindergarten and I will have more free time to spend on growing my business.
