While I was in college, Brandon start a real estate company and asked me to come work for him as an office assistant. I eagerly accepted, excited to get to work with my brother! After a few months at the real estate office, I began toying with flyers and brochures for the company. From there things just kinda took off. I began to be given more responsibility regarding advertising and marketing, getting to design websites, brochures and even billboards.
That Christmas, as a gift, my brother presented me with the best gift ever...he gave me my business. He was so confident in me and my abilities that he purchased an LLC for me, named my business and set me up with a real company...I mean, I even have a tax ID number! My new business was formed...
Image Advertising, LLC was formed in December of 2007. I immediately began to see great outcomes in my business and really enjoyed doing it as a side job for extra income.
I was never able to work on my designs full time because I was single and supporting myself alone, so I needed a consistent, weekly paycheck, something that self-employed people don't always have the luxury of having.
After meeting and falling in love with the man of my dreams, it never really occurred to me that doing my graphic design full time would be an option. However, with Christan working weird hours at the ER, it was vital for our marriage that we do something different. So after much prayer, we decided that I would stay home and pursue my business full time...and let me tell you, God is faithful. He has blessed my business beyond measure and continues to amaze us with his abundance of opportunities.
Just last week, I launched a new portfolio website so that others can get a more visual idea of some of the things I do.
So...really long story short, I wanted to share it with many of you who have asked what sort of work I do. Feel free to check me out at www.designsbyimage.com
God is faithful and I can see now, looking back, how each step...each person played a role in getting me where I am today. I am so blessed...in fact I am one stinking blessed chick!
