How to create a brand mood board and color scheme in under 30 mins!

It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting a business or you’re looking to rebrand. Learning how to create a brand mood board and color scheme for your business is a great way to build an experience inspiration board for your brand! It’s a perfect tool for seeing if your current branding still aligns with the vision you have for your business. While this is something that I do for my custom design clients, I understand that not everyone has the budget to hire out. Lucky for you, I have a free mini training to teach you how to create one for yourself!

I'm a huge advocate for pursuing your dreams no matter what

Because the nine to five isn't security

I spent a number of years in the start of my business with self-doubt. I had let all of the limiting beliefs others had for my life take control over me. I started to believe that the only way I could make money was if I spent a lot of time and money in school. Businesses worked for other people, but not me. It took me being on the verge of homelessness to finally wake up and realize my worth. So if this is you, I’m here to help push you towards your dream career too!
