2018 Year in Review

2018 Year in Review

I can not believe how fast 2018 has gone by… a lot of growth & new exciting things have happened in my business! I love writing a “Year in Review” for each year because it’s almost more for me than it is for all of you. It’s something I can look back on through the years to see what happened in my business, what I accomplished, what I didn’t like, and what I changed. I am hoping that you’ll read along as well, even if I’m doing it more for myself ;)

How to Use a Personality Quiz on Your Website to Gain Leads

Hello friends! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post, mainly because I’ve been swept up in travel, invitation work for weddings, and Biz Birthday Bash in the past few months. I haven’t even had time to send out my monthly newsletter, and I’m starting to think it maybe needs to be a quarterly thing… anyway, I wanted to go ahead and introduce all of you to an amazing quiz software I’ve had the privilege of trying out and utilizing on my website. This software is called Interact, and it’s an online quiz-builder that can help you generate leads for your business! After trying it out, I’m excited to say I have it fully integrated with my website and I can’t wait to see what kind of leads I collect.

What's a Mastermind Group and How to Find One!

This is a topic that I’m super excited to be blogging about. After all, I can’t tell you how many people have emailed me asking how I got involved in my current mastermind group. So, simply stated, this blog post is dedicated to answering some questions about mastermind groups, as well as sharing a few ways you can find one of your own! 

I was first contacted by a friend in the stationery business who asked me if I wanted to be part of one. Her (and two other creatives) had already decided to be committed to a mastermind and wanted to get one more person involved…

How Deleting Facebook Has Helped me Grow my Business

How Deleting Facebook Has Helped me Grow my Business

In August 2017 I came to a crossroads where a lot of things needed to change within my personal life as well as my business life. It was an incredibly painful time of transition, but one that ended up for the best; I had to take time to evaluate what I could change and control and what I could not change and control, but rather had to learn to accept. Does any of this sound familiar? I feel like many other people go through something similar in their own life.

At this point in time social media was beginning to wear on me more and more. Not only did it take up my time, but it also drained me emotionally and mentally. I had already deleted certain apps off my phone, including Pinterest and SnapChat…

How I Use Dubsado as a Calligrapher & Designer

How I Use Dubsado as a Calligrapher & Designer

WOW! A lot has changed since I last wrote about Dubsado more than a YEAR ago; that’s just crazy for me to think about, especially because my little business has grown so much since then and Dubsado has been there every step of the way. Dubsado still remains an integral part of my calligraphy and design business, ElisaAnne Calligraphy, and I’m using the platform on an almost daily basis (depending on the time of year and how busy I am). Dubsado still remains my top choice out of all the other client management systems I’ve heard of that exist (HoneyBook, 17Hats, Tave… blah blah). Excuse my slight cynicism there, but I don’t really think the other platforms compare because I just love Dubsado that much!
