The Creative Business Coach & Chandai Events

Chandai hired me to coach her through fixing her flailing wedding business.  The company was known at the time as Kismet Events and really wasn't anything "special".  There was no personality in her company, no passion.  It was a standard Go Daddy website that didn't speak to what she is really capable of.  The first step was changing the brand entirely.  We went from the Kismet Events brand:


I mean, yuck, right?  I'm not hurting her feelings by telling you this publically, trust me, I said it to her over the phone.  One day, I may even show the video she had in the gallery, it was...interesting. 

Within a few weeks, we launched her new brand of Chandai Events:

 

Wow!  What a difference it makes.  It's clean, it reflects her sparkling personality and uses one of her top assets - her name, which is not a name you will see every day which makes it memorable.  

We're now working on her blog posting, SEO, sales materials and...

Richard Wood Photographics & Creative Business Mentoring

As a wedding planner, we meet lots of different vendors, especially photographers but there are people you meet in life that you automatically really like.  I've known Richard for over 17 years. I met him when he first moved back to Napa Valley and his photography business was young. He shot a lot of weddings for me back in the day, including my long-time assistant Mellysa's wedding back in 2003. But Richard Wood Photographics needed some new life.

Now in my business as a creative business coach and mentor, Richard reached out to me to get some information about his business and how we could work together to move his business along in the right direction.  Over lunch, I explained what I do in the Consultancy for Creatives, how the process works and what I thought would be the right steps to take for him.  In a few days, we were working together and I was his creative business coach.  Having never worked with a photographer wasn't a concern for me because I...

Posh Events gets a refreshed website!

Uncategorized May 15, 2017

Posh Events LLC manages events throughout New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia.  I've known Isis as long as I've had a twitter account, so I think we've been friends since 2007 or 2008.  She served with me on the National board of Wish Upon a Wedding and is always upbeat and excited about life in general. She's awesome to be around.  I was so excited when she signed up for the Consultancy. She had a website that needed A LOT of work and I think it hadn't been updated since I first met her.  

Now with a lot of refinement and work, we have a new website to go with her beautiful new branding!

The Pink Tuxedos Redesign is Live!

Uncategorized May 15, 2017

We love working with Shamica from The Pink Tuxedos, a go-getting wedding designer in the Dallas Metroplex. But she had a brand that didn't reflect how awesome she is or properly showing the work she was doing. We got to work on her redesign and rebranding and the outcome is really a night and day change.

Old Branding - Old Branding felt dated, unprofessional and not very chic. It looked more cartoonish than professional:

New Branding -New branding is on trend, very now and has a refined but fun quality.

Shamica's business persona has elevated x 1000 thanks to her hard work and dedication to making this a priority for her. I could not be more proud of everything she's done so far and I'm excited that we get to work together for a lot longer with her extended All Access Consulting program!

Two Foot Creative Launches New Website & Brand Redesign!

Uncategorized May 15, 2017

So excited for my client Two Foot Creative! Ana launched her new site this week with an awesome event and the redesign and rebrand is gorgeous! Run over to her website to see the new branding. 

Are you looking for help with your creative business?  There's no day but today!

 

Old branding - Ana's previous branding was a little cartoonish and needed refinement and redesign to reflect the types of clients who hire her. When I saw the original branding it reminded me of Wicked.

New branding - Ana's new branding is so much more refined and polished. It still has the two high heels but this logo will be timeless.

Ana has signed up for the Accelerated Consulting program and had graphic and web designers she's been working with. We are now addressing all the other concerns she has to make her brand shine and garner the clients she wants to have!

Pantone Color of the Year. How Will You Use It?

Uncategorized May 15, 2017

Everybody is all aflutter about the Pantone announcement of the Color of the Year.

But let's take a minute to check out the last 16 years of colors. 2016 had 2 - it was schizophrenic like the entire year it represented.

Do you notice anything missing? Maybe a bright green? I'm calling a purple or a yellow for next year...Or black/grey depending on how 2017 plays out.

What's your opinion about the color of the year?  How will you use it in your business and when are you planning on using it?
