I felt like a complete fraud.⁠ 😳⠀
⁠⠀
I mean, who was I to start a business?⁠ 🥵⠀
⁠⠀
No college degree. No formal education in graphic design. NOTHING.⠀
⁠⠀
Not to mention… I was really, really scared of failure.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Have you ever felt like that?⁠ 👇🏼⠀
⁠⠀
Have you ever wondered if you were “cut out for it”? If others were going to find out about “what a fraud you really are”?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If so, I have some good news for you: We have all felt like an imposter before.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Why is this good news? Because you’re not alone, and also because you don’t have to let it hold you back.⁠ ✨⠀
⁠⠀
Sure, I didn’t have a college degree, formal design education, or any kind of business knowledge, but guess what?⁠ 👏🏼😉⠀
⁠⠀
I did it anyway. I figured it out and I made it work.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I just spent the last 6 MONTHS in Europe and Asia.

I’m financially independent (and wow, I did not ever think those words would come out of my mouth last year).⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Your dreams? They don’t just have to stay dreams. They can 100% become your reality.⁠ 🥳⠀
⁠⠀
All of this? Once felt like a really, reallllly far away dream for me. In fact, that was only A YEAR AGO. But now I’m here. ✈️🗺

ME.⁠ 😱⠀
⁠⠀
The girl who once earned $11/hr ringing up people’s groceries, genuinely believing she wasn’t capable of more.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Boy, did I prove my 21-year-old self wrong. And thank goodness I did!⁠⠀

What about you? Do you want to prove yourself wrong?⠀
⁠⠀
If you’re ready to finally stop making excuses for yourself, because let’s be honest - you probably are, I was too until I finally started calling myself out on it. 🥵⠀

And now, I’m calling you out on it too because I KNOW you’re capable of more and I know you know it too.⁠ 💕⠀
⁠⠀
Then… I have the perfect thing just for you.⁠⠀

Hey there! Have we met? If not, I’m Molly. 🙋🏻‍♀️

You can call me a brand designer, a digital nomad, a storyteller, a Gemini, or… you can just call me Molly. 😉⁠⠀
⁠⠀
4 yrs ago, I was doing min wage at $11/hr ringing up people’s groceries.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
3 yrs ago, I was at an office job that gave me free lunch and took me to Hawaii also for free but... made me absolutely miserable and oh yeah I cried every day.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
2 yrs ago, I was eating $1 mac n cheese and often cried myself to sleep because entrepreneurial isn’t an overnight ordeal. It’s hard and intentional work.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
1 yr ago, I finally decided enough was enough and I was going to change my life and myself. And… good news: I did just that.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Real talk?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This journey is HARD, which is exactly why so many people find themselves quitting or wanting to quit. 🥵⁠⠀
⁠⠀
BUT if you’re willing to show up for yourself, again and again, failure after failure, road bump after speed bump… you will be SO GLAD you did it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This journey… takes serious commitment, to say the least.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And I’m not just talking about staying up late and getting work done.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I’m talking about the inner work, the deep work, the getting honest and vulnerable af with yourself work. Confronting and working through your deepest and darkest fears.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So if you’re wondering what you can expect from me, this is it. 👏🏼⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The messy, unfiltered truth.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Because I’m the kinda gal that wants you to know that:⁠⠀
⁠⠀
1. you do not have to be ashamed of anything ever, and⁠⠀
⁠⠀
2. I’m here to have real, honest conversations - not sell you some kind of magic pill that will transform your life overnight.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But don’t get it twisted, because I *AM* 100% here to sell you stuff okkkk. 💁🏻‍♀️⁠⠀
⁠⠀
After all, I’m a business/brand and I’m here to make that monayyyy and secure that 💰 bag, you feel me?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And also yes, I 100% DO want to help you transform your life, but it’s not going to happen overnight -- so if that’s what you’re looking for, this ain’t it fam.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Speaking of transformations, tell me a bit about you and your life! What's your story and where do you want to go? Comment below and tell me all about it! ✨

It’s called brand positioning. 😉⠀

Are you setting yourself up to be a Walmart or Whole Foods? What kind of clients do you want to be attracted to your business? Clients who only want to pay 💸 or clients willing to invest 💸💸💸 in themselves? 🤔⠀

It’s amazing how QUICKLY your life can change once you set the intention and put it out into the Universe. ✨⠀

A few weeks ago, I was feeling horrible, lost, scared, and just uneasy.⠀

Honestly, it felt like I was having at least 10 meltdowns a day. Oh, I WISH I was exaggerating. 🥵⠀

But after talking to a few of my closest friends, I started to remember that... your life is what YOU make it out to be.

Your thoughts become your reality.⠀
Your behavior becomes your reality.⠀
Your actions become your reality.⠀

Whatever you do consistently, whether it’s good or bad, becomes your life. 👏🏼⠀

And you will attract more of whatever you put out there.⠀

I realized that I was projecting MY own fears, doubts, insecurities, etc. onto other people. 🥵⠀

And when you find yourself doing that... you have to ask yourself why, instead of mindlessly continuing the behavior.⠀

If you want to change your life, you have to be honest with yourself and be willing to call yourself out on it.⠀

If you want to change your life... you have to be willing to show up and DO THE INNER WORK. 🙏🏼✨⠀

And I’m not going to sugarcoat it: It’s not easy.⠀

But you know what’s even harder? 👇🏼⠀

Staying in your “comfort zone” because you’re too scared to get out.⠀

Never finding out what you’re truly capable of.⠀

Not going after your dreams and desires.⠀

Sure, the uncertainty of it all is terrifying. Trust me, I know. 👀⠀

But what I also know is this: You are capable of SO much more, babe. ❤️⠀

And once you stop holding yourself back... once you stop telling yourself you can’t... once you make the DECISION to show up and do the work, you’ll be so glad you did it.⠀

If you’re ready to do the work, I wrote a book just for YOU.

✨ HOW TO GET YOURSELF OUT OF A SLUMP 101 ✨⁠⠀

1. People, energy, and environment.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The people you spend time with, the language they use, their tone, the way they treat themselves, etc. - these are all things we pick up on.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
One thing that really helped me get out of my funk was the conversations I had and the people I spent time with.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Instead of feeling judged and in a state of continued comparison, I felt understood, seen, loved, and inspired afterward.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Pro tip: There are people who will drain you or energize you. Spend time with the latter.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
2. Stop beating yourself up. 😩⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You’re not perfect. So what?⁠⠀
You’ve had a setback. …or ten. So what?⁠⠀
Things didn’t go as planned. Again, sooooo what?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It’s great to be ambitious and push for more, but let me ask you this: at what cost?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you continually tell yourself you’re not good enough, you WILL start to believe you’re not good enough.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
3. Remember you are not a one-size-fits-all.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Have you ever felt like you were doing something wrong because it wasn’t what everyone else was doing? Because I have.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
As someone who didn’t go to college, work at a 9-5, left home to travel the world on her own, it took me a while to learn to accept and love my own path.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
My path isn't better or worse than anyone else's.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's just... mine. 😊⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Basically what I’m trying to say is… STOP COMPARING YOURSELF, because it’s a losing battle.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Part of the reason I ended up in this slump is because I compared myself to others too often and tooooo much.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So just… don’t, okay?⁠ ❤️⠀

Have any tips for getting out of a slump? I'd love to hear them! 👇🏼

WANT TO BOOK MORE CLIENTS WITH INSTAGRAM? 😱👇🏼

Well then, it's time to start showing your face more often!

There’s a reason why I post so many photos of myself on Instagram and it’s definitely not because I’m obsessed with the way I look. 😂

〰 ⠀

3 REASONS TO START POSTING MORE PHOTOS OF YOURSELF ON INSTAGRAM:

👉🏼 1. It builds brand recognition.

Do you ever scroll through your feed and think, “Who are you again?”

It's like going to a party and not being able to remember a single name, but if you were to see them on the street again, you'd instantly recognize them.

Same thing with Instagram.

👉🏼 2. It builds trust.

When you start seeing someone over and over again (and you like their personality), you start to trust them, right?

The first few times, you’re not so sure. But as you get to know them, you start to build a relationship.

If you want to build a relationship with your followers, they first have to know that you exist and what you look like.

Being able to see someone’s face helps us see that they’re just like us.

Human beings with feelings, emotions, doubts, fears, dreams, and goals.

👉🏼 3. It shows that you’re confident and comfortable with who you are, which makes them feel confident and comfortable IN YOU.

Remember: confidence is CONTAGIOUS.

When people see that you’re confident with who you are, they become more confident in you and your brand.



Share with me in the comments below: When you see someone's face over and over again on your IG feed, is it easier to connect with them?

What's the cost of NOT branding your biz? 😳

Clients?
Customers?
Credibility?
💸💸💸?

We all know by now that branding ISN'T just your logo.



So what is it really about then? 🤔

👉🏼 It's creating an EXPERIENCE that your potential client / customer will absolutely LOVE.

👉🏼 It's about letting people IN and building that TRUST. People buy from people and companies they resonate and align with.

👉🏼 It's about making them feel seen, loved, heard, and APPRECIATED.

👏🏼 And it's most definitely about how THEY see and feel about your brand.

Because at the end of the day, branding really comes down to THEIR perception of YOU.



Here’s the good news:

You can intentionally create a brand identity for yourself and position yourself in a way that attracts YOUR dream customers and clients. 🙏🏼✨

That’s where I come in. 🙋🏻

As a brand designer, my job is to thoughtfully design a brand identity that gives YOUR dream clients the confidence and clarity they need to hire YOU.

[link in bio for my services + to schedule a call btw 😉 prices are going up again in Nov. so don’t wait!]



And what makes us confident as consumers? 🤔

👉🏼 Knowing that whoever we're buying from has their 💩 together.
👉🏼 Knowing that they're going to show up and deliver on their promise.
👉🏼 Also, when we feel GOOD about something. Because let’s face it - we buy based on our emotions.



So why does branding matter?

👉🏼 Because it instills CONFIDENCE in people. People meaning your dream clients.
👉🏼 Because branding, when done well, tells your ideal clients right away that you're the right person for them.

And if your goal is to attract everyone ...good luck getting anyone to notice you. 🙃



So if you’re ready to start taking your brand and biz seriously, let's talk. ☺

Now is the perfect time for a brand facelift because 2019 is literally right around the corner. 💕

12/23/2018

There's a reason why I share my stories and past experiences with you. 👇🏼

Whether they are good, bad, messy, emotional, vulnerable, etc.

And they will always be real. Full of my own truth (at that time) and heart.



Why is storytelling so important? 🤔

They have the power to build real relationships, to remind us that we're human (and we're going to be okay), and to help us heal so we can move on to better things.

They also have the power to inspire and encourage, to challenge us to go outside of our comfort zones, and to do the things we once thought we couldn't.

Every day, I'm learning to be a better storyteller.



I may not have always appreciated the bumps in the road, the loneliness that I felt, the anxiety attacks I've experienced, the times when life didn't go as planned, etc. ...

But I do now.

Because of those experiences, I'm more empathetic, understanding, grounded, resilient, and intentional.

I will never stop sharing my experiences, and I hope you never stop sharing yours either.

Because your stories and life experiences MATTER.

And they have the power to change someone's life. 🙏🏼
