I left the agency model and started my design studio on one quote that I had taped on my computer monitor;
Let go of fear, and success will come.
Countless hours in ad agencies, brainstorming, concepting, designing and working my way through the ranks. Making great creative alliances through the years has given me a network and base that has allowed me to run my own creative design studio. I took a leap and never turned back. I have been very fortunate to have a thriving business. It is not about the profit, but building relationships. I treat every client with the utmost respect and service them as if they are the only client I have.
Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life! Take time to disconnect from the electronics. I meditate and study yoga 3-5 times a week to keep my creative channels opened. In a world of deadlines and rushes, the calm and orderly manner the studios operates day-to-day is just amazing. We are all pummeled with emails, voice mails, texting, deadlines and creative pressures... I think we need to create each day with focused intent and most importantly, breathe…then watch the creativity flow.
