What would you say to those who feel overwhelmed by their branding and design challenges?

Can I just take a moment and say WOWEE! It’s been the ultimate honour to see your business grow and thrive. But the reality is it wasn’t like this overnight and that it’s taken some boundaries in place to ensure that you and your business are well taken care of. A key takeaway I’ve learned from you is to ask for consent and this reigns true more than ever with everything going on in the world with various circumstances and capacities. By listening to this episode today, I want to give listeners the grace to have more compassion and care for themselves and others. Let’s break it down here. What exactly are healthy boundaries and what’s the significance to have them integrated into our businesses?This is a reminder I say often to myself that if you have the right structure in place, your business will not fall apart when you take a day off. Taking time off is part of the process, not a deviation. You just came back from one-month “off” from your business, what did you learn from that process? What are 3 things we can incorporate today that will help us take a graceful step away from our businesses without putting fires out, or feeling the guilt that we should be working? And what are the benefits and impact on your sales as well when we do give ourselves this care?Self-care and healthy boundaries can sometimes be perceived as selfish unfortunately. But language is extremely powerful to set expectations and share some empathy. Whether someone is getting ready for some time off, to navigating a difficult client, what would you recommend to them?

I've got a few rapid questions for you. Are you ready?

What are you currently celebrating? What’s the #1 thing you want people to have fun with from this episode? What’s your bold legacy? Thank you so much Katy for taking the time to join in on the fun on the BRAND PARTY Podcast.
