Why Your Energy Matters to Your Business

Let's Talk About YOUR Energy

We’ve talked about confidence, we’ve talked about processes, now it’s time to talk about energy.

No, I’m not talking just about how amped — or not you feel — about a project ... or how much coffee you need in the morning to feel like you have any energy at all.

I’m talking about YOU — who you are, how you interact with others, whether you’re calm and cool or enthusiastic and bubbly, or perhaps a mixture of all the things.

Why Aren't You Charging More for Your Design Genius?

Who here has ever felt like an imposter in their business? Raise your hand. C’mon, don’t be shy.

Everyone has that tiny voice in the back of their head whispering these things, but that doesn’t mean you have to listen to it. And don’t forget that ultimately you are in control of your thoughts … sometimes they just need extra guidance or a heavy hand to steer away from the edge of that massive, looming cliff.

So when that little voice tries to speak up, tell it to bugger off and replace those mutterings with positive, powerful affirmations.
