Hi, my name is Karie
A CAREER & BUSINESS COACH FOR CREATIVES
I’m passionate about helping creatives earn a living as a creative. I’m tired of seeing creatives become so frustrated that they eventually give up on their creativity.
For over 20 years, I’ve worked as a graphic designer, web designer and brand strategist for small businesses. Most of those years I was a freelancer.
I had tremendous success in the beginning. It was amazing to see how I could actually go out on my own and build success mainly from word-of-mouth. But then the struggle got real! I started on a roller coaster of good years and not so good years. You can read the full details of my story here.
It took me a really long time to realize that there’s much more work that goes into having a career or business. No one really talks about all the personal AND professional development you’ll need. As your coach, I want to help you break through the seen and unseen barriers that are holding you back.
A COACH FOR CREATIVES
I coach and teach creatives how to start their career or business while helping them develop the mindset and actions needed to achieve it.
What do you want to achieve?
HOW ABOUT. . .
You’ve had enough of working at a job just for the paycheck. You want to feel like you’ve accomplished something meaningful; even if it only means something to you.
You’ve been sitting on an idea for a long time but you just haven’t developed the skills or confidence to really launch your business.
Maybe you’ve been working as a creative professional but you’re not too happy in your curent job and you’re ready for a change.
You Can Achieve Your Goals
Those are just a few examples of what my clients were looking for when they came to me. They were able to achieve these goals and so much more by getting clear on what they wanted for their career, working through the things that were holding them back and consistently taking action.
