Tales of a Creative Entrepreneur
OH MY GAWD - If you guys only knew what it was like when I first started designing my own website 😂
I was NOT a designer.
I knew NOTHING about tech stuff.
I had NEVER promoted a business online.
HARDLY had an internet connection. #dialup
And ZERO plan.
ONLY A DREAM, A LAPTOP & 10 IMAGES ON A FLOPPY DISK.
YEP. For reals. See back in the olden days you had to go to a place to transfer the negatives into digital format.
The funny part is it was photographs of models about 100 feet away from the camera - ALL wearing sunglasses. I thought is was cool! It didn't even phase me you couldn't see the makeup on their face. I was creating a website for my Makeup Artistry, btw. Basically...
I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING.
THAT was the beginning of me "putting myself" out there.
Enter 1 year later of me futzing around on my computer spending infinite amounts of time trial & error(ing) it to where I finally wanted it to be.
THEN ONE NIGHT, MY SITE CRASHED 😬
The website platform I was using crashed overnight. And it was "season" in my industry. 80% of all my work came from out of town productions. Meaning they would find my website and book me directly online.
I had NO CHOICE. It was the TIME to make the switch. I knew I was eventually going to upgrade to Squarespace. I just didn't think it was going to be a MAD DASH in the middle of the night.
I thought I totally got this! NBD.
I didn't know how to use Squarespace properly. All the tweaks, tips, and inner workings of how to navigate it were totally new to me. A whole new language to learn.
Funny how unexpected circumstances can light a fire under your *ss.
SO WHEN I SAY I GET YOU. I REALLY DO!
That is why I am so passionate about helping Creatives prep, plan, intend, and design all pre-game Style.
I'd LOVE to hear where you're at right now!
