I am sitting here at my computer, typing out these words and my heart is beating out of my chest like crazy. In the weeks ahead, there will be an addition to Grace & Serendipity that has honestly been a long time coming, and something I am very excited about.
I have said numerous times, that in my business, I am in the passenger seat and God is in control. I know that may seem like a really weird or strange thing to read, but if you have been following my business for a while, you know this is something that I try to keep at the forefront of my life. As much as I would love to say that I always have everything planned to a tee in the direction I see things going, I also know that His plans are always greater than mine. So, I am taking a leap of faith, following a whisper that I have had placed on my heart for a long time and am very excited to announce that I will soon be offering branding + coaching services for creative business owners in addition to designing for engaged couples.
For the last year (yes, for an entire year!!), behind the scenes, I have been spending a lot of time helping fellow business owners I love work on so many different details when it comes to their business - be it with designing collateral for them to add to their products, offering custom branding services, working with them on different things to help their business run smoother, even teaching how to style images for their Instagram using nothing but their iPhones and a little creativity, and so much more. However, not really any of that has been shared publicly, which I feel like now, looking back, was building up to this, teaching me about another piece of my life puzzle that I found I didn't realize was meant to become a part of my story.
At the end of 2016, I was doing an End of the Year Review from a webinar that the Society for Creative Founders offered and I suddenly realized it. Honestly, it hit me like a ton of bricks because I couldn't believe I didn't see it prior to that, that in all of the time working with fellow creatives on their business, how much I absolutely love it. I truly do. I love helping others learn how to develop a business they sincerely love. I love designing branding for creative business owners that truly encompasses who they are and what they are all about. (and I also think maybe this was the reason God had me start my "career days" as a teacher even though I knew it wasn't something I would do for my life, for me to learn how to teach in a variety of ways).
And so, without revealing all of the details quite yet, I am so excited to share that in approximately four weeks, I am going to begin offering branding services and coaching sessions to fellow creatives, and not keep this as a behind the scenes item anymore.
I do want to add here as well, that my passion for working with engaged couples is still is so, so strong. Just today I received a shipment of invitations and seeing the completed product literally made my heart smile, my fingers run over them lovingly, and my heart beat a little faster with joy because they are so beautifully made for my sweetheart couple. I have absolutely no intention on ever stopping designing for weddings. This is a service that I will be offering in addition to designing for engaged couples. So if you are a bride looking for a designer to work with you to create a timeless collection, please reach out to me here, as I would love to chat with you. :)
More details will be shared in the weeks ahead, but for now, if either of these services are something you would be interested in, I would love for you to click on one of the images below to sign up to be one of the first to know when details are made official (and also, there will be something special planned for you.... ;) )
The Branded Business will be branding + design services for creatives. It will encompass logo design and branding services to create a brand that you feel truly encompasses you as a business owner. For more information, click here.
The Serendipity Sessions will be known as the Grace & Serendipity coaching sessions. Whether it is how to organize and prioritize your time to make your days more efficient, or work together with me to come up with ideas for client gifting to love on your clients in a way you absolutely adore, I would love for you to sign up here for more information on this when it becomes available.
So there you go, your first sneak peek to what is to come! Officially, this will be available on April 20th. On April 11th and 18th, I'll be sharing more about the details specifically for these services, and I hope you'll come back to learn more about it all. I am pretty excited about this addition, and hope that you are too. Talk to you again soon, and I hope to see you here again on April 11th!
