Changes for 2019

 

Welcome back! It’s been a while since I released an episode. Sometimes business moves faster than we do and we need a minute to catch up. I try to be as open and honest in my business as I absolutely can and this is one of those episodes.

About 6 months ago, I completely changed directions with my visual brand and I visually re-branded my business. It was a hard decision because after 2 years of having the same brand color and style I felt that was my identity. I realized I had to give myself permission to change. I did and it was the best experience.

For the first time in a long time, I felt my visual brand represented my personal style and also resonated well with who I wanted to attract.

This time, I’m in the midst of changing my content and offerings. Branding + Website Design will always be my basis, my bread and butter, my passion. But somewhere along the way, I started creating content about business, marketing, etc. Stuff I had learned while running a business.

Pretty soon -- I was feeling overwhelmed by the amount of content I was responsible for creating each month. The lines of what I taught and what I wanted to be known for had blurred. And I guess, I was losing my own identity.

I decided to take a step back in November and reassess everything. I tried to find not only my strengths we’re but what was I really passionate about.

I can to the conclusion it’s what has always been the cornerstone of Carrylove Designs. Branding and Website Design.

In 2019, I’m scaling back on the content I put out. I am also niching down on topics Carrylove Designs will cover in-depth.

The podcast is something I enjoy doing. But I am going to be launching the podcast under a new name in 2019. When we launched the podcast (more than a year ago) it was something my sister and I did together so I kept it very much separate from Carrylove Designs. Now, I want to fuse Carrylove Designs and this podcast together. I think that can only be done by shedding the Get Back to Business podcast identity.

The new year is going to be filled with so many changes. The opening of a Showit template shop, a redefined podcast, a streamlined message, and condensed content topics. I am not going to lie, change makes me so incredibly scared and anxious.

My fear is people will mistake my changes as uncertainty or that I have no idea what I doing. Which isn’t the case necessarily. I started Carrylove Designs so I could be in charge and be happy at what I was doing. I don't want that to stop now.

I want to thank each and every one of you so much for tuning in week after week. Please find me on Instagram at @carrylovedesigns and reach out. I love hearing from the listeners!

Until Next Time!
