Do you call yourself a "freelancer" when other people ask what you do? Do you "freelance" on the side while you work your 9-5? . I used to say the same thing when I was considering starting my own business. Then I got one of the BEST pieces of advice for someone just starting out... . "Don't call yourself a freelancer. You're a business owner." . It was an amazing moment for me. . I realized he was right, and I needed to take this seriously. I needed to admit what I was REALLY trying to do - run an actual business. . This man whom I didn't know and never met helped me shift from FREELANCER to OWNER in a matter of seconds. . The rest of the journey has been filled with challenges, obstacles, growth, success, fear, excitement, failures... But it all started with this one simple shift in my mindset. . So if you're still calling yourself a freelancer, I want to encourage you today. . Stop saying freelancer. You are a business owner. You are awesome. 🙌
As a child, I used to dream of becoming a photographer. They said that was not a career. They said Everyone else does it, there’s no room for another one. Major in graphic design and keep photography as a hobby they said. 😎 Today as a graphic designer AND photographer. I not only get to prove them wrong but more so, I’m honored I get to help fellow creative mamas pursue their dreams. ✨ When I am living in my purpose, I take a second to raise a glass of red wine and thank myself for pursuing a career that empowers me to be creative and give to those around me. 🍷 You, Mama, are why I create. Seeing the joy it brings you is why I do what I do. 😘

I used to worry about getting my livestreams perfect. 😂😂😂 Just finished a video in my FB group were I was caught in the middle of a crazy rainstorm! ⛈ Never a dull moment in my career, I swear. Either I’m about to be struck down or my messaging is REALLY on point! 😜❤️#voiceover #voiceactor #sparklingwondrousloveablelimitless #talent #entertainment #media #act #actorlife #actresslife #acting #actors #actresses #creativeminds #creativeprocess #creativelife #creativityforlife #creativity #blackgirlmagic #animation #casting #creativeentrepreneur #mindset #mindsetiseverything
I'm so grateful for creative friends and I'm fortunate to have many of them. 🎨 . Thank you @tlwesner for this happy bird painting! Toni sent it while I was out of town and it was exciting to find it in my mailbox today! I have just the spot for this little songbird. She's a treasure. 😍 #risebyliftingothers #creativelife

Here's a collection of moments that make my heart happy. I'm so excited to have gotten photos of the Whidbey Flower Workshop back. I've been poring over them for hours and want to post almost every single one. Here's a group of "WHY" moments - ones that demonstrate why I produce this workshop, and that bring a big inner smile to my soul. Enjoy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #whidbeyflowerworkshop #education #investinyourself #investineducation #creativelife #floraldesign #floralart #flowerbusiness #flowerworkshop #openthedoor #neverstoplearning #slowflowers #ilovewhatido

Finally sat down and made some time to sketch, for a mural project some friends and I are putting together. Here’s one of the more fleshed out ideas I made. “Kill Your Demons.” Should I add more to this design or keep it simple, is always my question. 🤔 . . . #corelpainter #digital #digitalart #instaart #creativelife #creatives #artjournal #lifeofanartist #muraldesign #mural #artstudio #doitfortheprocess #livecreatively #onelaine

[PT/EN] Sobre referências. Vale tudo. Fotografias, paleta de cores de filmes, de quadros, de trabalhos gráficos etc. Acabei de fazer esse desenho por causa dessa foto mas lógico que o resultado final terá muito da minha imaginação e do meu universo. Logo mais compartilho a aquarela pronta. 🎨 ☕🌛 . . About references. Anything is valid. Photografy, color pallets from movies, paintings, grafic design works, etc. I just did this drawing because the picture inspired me, but of course, the final drawing must draw much more of my imagination and my own universe. Soon I will share the finished watercolor. 🎨☕🌛 . . #painting #artgram #artwall #ilustração #illustration #criatividade #creativelife #creative
For Day 3 of the #5DaystoLaunchChallenge we're talking about setting up your shop. Your digital welcome mat. Your store. Whatever you wanna call it.⠀ ⠀ We want fast + quick + branded + simple. So we love @squarespace. There's a lot of chatter all the time about Wordpress this, Etsy that, Squarespace this, Shopify that.⠀ ⠀ Here's the thing: we don't give a SHIZ which platform you choose. Some might work better for you depending on your biz and skill set. But we do care about you just making a DAMN decision.⠀ ⠀ So do that right now. Even if you aren't doing our challenge with us. Maybe you've been editing a template over in Wordpress and running out your trial in Squarespace. Maybe you've started on Etsy, but also want a blog. Just decide.⠀ ⠀ Right now.⠀ ⠀ Which ONE platform are you going to choose? Run with it. Own it. Learn that ONE inside and out. You don't have time to be hem hawing around between platforms and putting off launching because you're just not sure. Go, now.

Lápis no papel e muitos rascunhos nessas semanas! Sabe, nesses dias corridos eu tenho tentado ser o mais produtiva possível. Só assim pra dar conta de tudo que eu gostaria de fazer. A vida já é uma porção limitada de tempo, então, pra fazer tudo que a gente deseja, FOCO é a palavra! Tenho aproveitado todas as brechas no trabalho pra focar completamente na atualização do meu planner. (Sim, já!) Ele me ajuda com ele mesmo. :) · E eu tenho ficado tão tão feliz com o resultado! Pensei num modelo diferente pro próximo ano e, se você aí lendo, foi uma das mais de 180 pessoas que adquiriu o planner de 2018, te digo pra ficar ligada no seu email no fim desse mês de junho, que vou te fazer uma proposta por lá! ;) (Adiciona meu e-mail ola@annima.cc nos seus contatos pra não ir pro spam!)
Utilizar o preto e o cinza na decoração tem se tornado uma tendência entre as pessoas antenadas que desejam uma casa elegante e sofisticada. Os tons escuros conferem uma ideia de nobreza e refinamento nos ambientes em que são utilizados. Mas, se usado em excesso, o preto pode criar um ambiente sombrio e até um pouco triste. ⚫️⚪️ Using black and gray in the decor has become a trend among the discerning people who want a stylish and sophisticated home. The dark tones give an idea of ​​nobility and refinement in the environments in which they are used.

“NeNe Wuz Here” 📍Super dope art exhibit !
This @hawkinsnewyork desk set up is total workspace goals! What’s your design style ?
I usually breeze over captions but I wanted to make this one more meaningful and dedicate it to all the recent events happening. This piece is sort of a metaphor for life, illustrating the world we live in and how we are lost in the flow of things. We don't think much for ourselves and conform to what society expects. Essentially, we're all just another koi fish  aimlessly swimming in the pond. This needs to change and we need to gain a new sense of normalcy. I believe that we should talk about topics that will bring us out of this close-minded bubble. We should start with mental health. It truly puzzles me that mental health has become silenced into a stigma when instead this should be a topic that we feel comfortable actively discussing with each other. We have all been programmed to have this mindset that it's somehow not acceptable or okay to voice our opinions. What's wrong with trying to become more informed, wanting to grow, helping each other, and being brought closer together? I really don't understand it. I feel like everybody should have the right to live their life how they want. If you do want to talk about it, great. If you don't, fine. But nobody should feel scared or guilty for being themselves. Nowadays, it's hard to find people who are truly themselves and even harder for some to express themselves. But those who find the strength to speak up for who they are are the strongest. Know that by having this courage to talk to someone and getting the help you deserve, you are anything but weak. You're unfiltered. You carry this strength that is undeniable. You are one in a million. And you deserve to be here because you are what this world needs. We need more people like you. The kind who asks questions. The kind who are comfortable in their skin. The kind who aren't afraid to speak their minds. So remember this. You don't need permission or anybody's validation to be happy. Only you can determine this. Know that whatever makes you 100% you is more than enough. If we all had this mindset, we'd be living in a world where we don't have to sacrifice ourselves and break others down to bring ourselves up.
