Always, Sarah

The Dream Job

You read how I got started working from home.  That was merely a simple solution to meet our childcare needs.  What I didn't realize it would do, is wake me up to find my own independence and creative powers.

About 2 years of singing wheels on the bus and reading one fish, two fish for the umpteenth time, I started creating ads for other entrepreneurs. The ads turned into websites.  Websites turned into consulting.  One consulting session turned into a job interview.  The gal I was chatting with wanted to get started in event photography.  I designed her ads and website and ran full force marketing her.  She started getting prospects and she asked me to help her shoot events.  I had always enjoyed snapping pictures and attending events, so why not? Why. Not. Those are the words that get me every time.  Shortly after, I ended up getting my first camera and getting mentored by two incredible creative masterminds.  I will always be grateful to them.  {I hope you know who you are.} 

Photography rocked my world and to my surprise I was able to get gigs.  Soon enough I was doing the things I wanted.  Right? Design. Photography. Fun things.  Check them out here and here. I woke up one morning and I knew this isn't what I should be doing.  I didn't want to be featured in Modern Bride or Parent magazine. I'm more of a Life and Rolling Stone cover type of gal.  With this wake up call, I found I needed a better strategy.  I needed to redevelop and redesign what I was offering and how I was offering it.  Then I discovered, this is a very common practice with creatives.  So I decided to take what I knew and help other working creatives better share and sell what they are best at, and what they really want to be doing everyday.

This takes us here. The magic that keeps my heart beating, my imagination racing, and my funny bone on overdrive is simply helping others take their creative selves to the next level. For more details of what I do, read this.  To get inside my head, take a peek at my journey.  If you're still reading this, thank you but seriously, I encourage you not to give up.  It took many steps for me to get where I am and I'm just tapping into the icing.  There's still a whole cake waiting for me.  A. Whole. Cake. I'm pretty sure there's a cake with your name written all over the sweet icing.
