You jump out of bed at 5 in the morning, make a pot of coffee, and start editing yesterday’s new product shots while the kids get ready. By lunch, you’ve dropped the kids off at school, answered emails, prepared the week’s Facebook posts, updated your ledger, solved a staff scheduling conflict, cleaned the shop bathroom, and worked the front desk for an hour.   I’ve always admired entrepreneurs like you. You work harder than anyone, tackling whatever needs to get done. You’re brave and unfazed by new challenges, trusting that you’ll figure things out as you go along. And you […]

4 Ways Writing your Ideas Down can Help your Business

Posted Posted in Business

Few things compare to the excitement you feel when you have a great new idea for your business. Something clicks into the right place and you’re all of a sudden flooded with inspiration, motivation, and the drive to make things happen.

I didn’t expect motherhood to completely change the direction of my business, but that’s exactly what happened. Wild Olive Branding Studio sprung roots during my pregnancy and has been steadily growing ever since.   Before Ellie came along, we’d been trying to have a baby for eight years. When we found out I was pregnant, we felt like we needed to do everything “right”. For us, that meant eating organic, learning about essential oils and herbs, switching to natural beauty products, planning a home birth and, basically, embracing our inner hippy.   I felt so empowered and confident in those parts of […]

I’m going to be completely honest. Having a kid totally kicked my butt. Here’s the thing: when people find out you’re expecting, they tell you how much work it’s going to be, how much sleep you’re going to lose, and how your life is going to completely change. But there’s no way anyone can fully describe what really happens.   As my due date got closer and closer, I prepared myself for the biggest change in my life.
