Welcome to the new SixteenJuly blog! I plan to share my personal take on building a rich & flourishing life and online business. My personal blog will still feature my artistic/creative endeavors and my more day-to-day life stuff. There will almost certainly be overlap, but I’ll let you know when there’s something over there you may want to check out. (And in the near future, I’ll expand on why I decided to keep two separate blogs when I would almost never give the same advice to someone else.)
I’d like to kick things off by telling you a bit about how I’ve been working for the past six months or so. Things have changed a bit on my end. I’ve spent a lot of my time building and maintaining websites to this point. Early last year, I started moving in the direction of offering more brand development. The journey that’s lead me on has been really phenomenal, and the process has really taken shape within the past month or so. (I credit all epiphanies in life and business to coaching with Mara and working with Fabeku.)
I’ve shifted toward branding from the inside out — getting to really know my clients as individuals with gifts to offer the world, and helping to build a business from there. You see, a beautiful brand and website are great, but they’re not enough. These are meant to be tools. This isn’t new information — you’ve probably heard that before. (Maybe even from me.) More than that, my work through the years has shown me that it’s also not enough to design a website for the business you have. If you’re going to shell out thousands of dollars on a rebrand, it’d better be positioned to meet you where you are and take you where you’re going. That’s why my coaching/clarity sessions are such an important part of the process of rebranding. My designs are based on your truest self — on the version of you that your clients and customers are so lucky to get to work with. (You’re magnetic in a way that is totally unique.)
I’m so, so loving working with my clients in this way. We’re doing some really incredible work together. I’m seeing some powerful transformations.
It’s challenging work, though, and it’s not for everyone. I do still offer websites sans coaching, and they’re as strategy-focused as ever, but we don’t do as much inner work — which is actually preferable for some people, and I totally get that.
