This Can Make Or Break Your SalesJune 18, 2019 November 8, 2020 /
When I was in junior high (aka, middle school as it’s called today), I had hip surgeries in both 7th and 8th grade (7th grade was my right hip, 8th grade was my left hip).
I won’t bore you with the details (hip bone slipped out of place, had to put pins in, spent most of those two years on crutches), but obviously, it wasn’t a fun time for me (junior high is challenging enough as it is, right?).
However, I did have a few things that were my saving grace.
First, I’ll give you some comic relief.
Because I wasn’t supposed to put pressure on my hip while it healed, the only type of movement I could do was ride my bike (since I was sitting and there wasn’t direct pressure). So I actually took bungee chords and strapped my crutches to my bike so I could ride to school with my friend (I was pretty tenacious as a kid too).
I knew it also helped my parents who were both working full time, so it was a complete win-win.
My other saving grace?
I must have spent hours and hours in my room drawing.
I had an affinity for art early on in my life and could get lost for an afternoon with only a pencil and stack of blank paper.
Fortunately, I kept following that innate pull to create.
I continued drawing, painting, studied art for a while in college, and even had some font stickers published when I owned my scrapbook store.
Sometimes I wish I had gone all in and gotten a degree in design, but then I sit back and remind myself that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be.
I’m also super fortunate to know a bunch of brilliant designers and still have outlets for that creative expression (started doing water colors a year or so ago and have gotten back into hand lettering).
I think I have a good eye for what looks good and can create some decent graphics for my business, but I’d prefer to have someone who really knows what they’re doing do it for me.
I was smart enough to partner with Jodi Hersh for the Content Creators Planner and now I’m collaborating with another brilliant designer on something that is coming out this fall.
The designer I’m collaborating with is none other than Mor Cohen (Mor was on the podcast recently).
Here’s a sneak peek of a rough draft/concept for the logo:
You’ll hear more about that later, but in the meantime, let me just say that I am GIDDY to be doing this with her.
Right away I had multiple color palettes to choose from based on both my brands (Kim Doyal & Content Creators Planner).
I’m also going through Mor’s design class, which will show you exactly how to dial in your own branding.
She covers typography, color, layouts, Brand Boards, and even has a bonus on Generate Press premium and Elementor Pro settings!
And since I’m in the mood for ‘sneak peeks’ today, here’s another one of her course:
Good branding can literally make or break your sales.
If you’re ready to dial in your own branding, you definitely need to check out Mor’s course.
