So you want to be a designer...

Ok - let me be honest with you...

Being a designer isn't easy...  Alright, I've said it.  Now that I've got that out of the way, you can't say that I didn't warn you!  


But, despite the obstacles, challenges, etc, I love being a designer... 

I love creating beautiful things, and I love helping others to feel beautiful.  

I love what I do.

In true designer fashion, I have visualized being able to help others to have a career that they would love too.  

Being creative is wonderful, but sometimes it can be challenging.  

In reflecting on my career, I realize that having a creative business has been more challenging than what other more traditional businesses may face...

The creative mind... ahhh...  SQUIRREL!!!   LOL  - 

No seriously - - we have many gifts... sometimes valuing our own time and talents is not one of them... and a "non-creative" type, may suggest a costing method based solely on materials and labour... and not taking into account the creativity, contemplation and the magic that needs to occur for something to materialize out of seemingly nothing... then they say "Oh, I could have done that!"   Our response as they are trying to figure out how we made it is...

"Yes, but you didn't think of it..".  It is reasonably easy to copy something, but the original is where the value is and where our reward and satisfaction is for coming up with it in the first place...



Now, I want to help others who are also interested in this line of work.  I've had many, many people ask me for advice, guidance and insights over the years, so I thought I would design and create a course for you, or for someone to purchase for their loved one who is interested in this path.
