Um, do you know that I’ve coached hundreds of women since I started offering dream career guidance in 2008? And that these women are freakin’ rock stars, leaving soul-sucking jobs and traveling the world and launching creative, grown-up businesses and simply doing work that fits their lifestyle goals? Well ya do now – and you’ll hear their stories firsthand in my Client Case Studies series! Whitney Miller is a multi-passionate creative who came to me in early 2018, looking to discover her dream business. By the end of those 6 sessions, she had *two* dream businesses to start – illustrations and natural hair styling! She then joined my Build Your Client Base mastermind, and since then she quit her day job, is regularly booking editorial hair shoots and wedding clients, opened up shop for her artwork and got a better-fitting, higher-paying bridge job! Read on for some Renaissance Soul inspiration.
Why did you decide to work with me?
I decided to work with you because I was looking for targeted career guidance. When I first met you, I had an idea of what I would have liked to do but wanted your help really solidifying future career plans.
What were you doing work-wise when we started working together – and what are you doing now?
I was working full-time as a graphic designer and finishing up my Master’s program in graphic design. Now, I work freelance as a graphic designer which gives me more freedom to develop my art and hair styling businesses.
What was your biggest takeaway from our work together?
My biggest takeaway from working together is discovering that the answers already exist inside of me.
Think of someone who is currently in the shoes you wore when we first started working together. What advice do you have for her?
I would tell them to believe and trust in themselves. I would also tell them to remember that their dreams and goals are their own and that they owe no one any explanations if they decide to change career paths.
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!
Don’t lose sight of why you started your business. On difficult days which could challenge your confidence, remember the bigger picture, the “why” you do what you do. Most likely that will help to push you onward.
What’s on the horizon for your business? We’d love to hear about any upcoming offerings or goals!
Right now, I just got my online store up and running for my comic and illustrations business. I also will be sharing more fashion illustrations as that is something I’m passionate about. I might be introducing a blogging element to my hair styling business’ website to provide even more natural hair knowledge and insight to my clients and potential clients.
