Fifteen years as a creative entrepreneur. From commercial and lifestyle photographer, to visual director of a product company, to a graphic designer and branding strategist. The constant through it all? Blogging. I have shared the story all along the way as I has pivoted among the seasons of motherhood and family life. And I am so grateful to have found a sweet spot. Creating beautiful content that I hope inspires you in living simple and making it beautiful.
There has always been another constant, however, and that is the questions I get from fellow business owners, professional creatives, and those wanting to go after creative pursuits they have had on their hearts for some time. The questions range from “How do I take better pictures for my content” to “How important is my branding to start really building my business” all the way to “How do I build something as you have”. I am so excited to share a new, somewhat refreshed area of what I do here at KaraLayne.com and it involves you and I getting to get our hands dirty in what drives us to do what we do. It’s the business of being creative and I wanted to share the handful of ways that we can work together in our creative pursuits!
The Inside Layne was started as a way for me to share my knowledge with other fellow small business owners and creative entrepreneurs. Through this monthly email, I have had the honor of connecting with thousands of passionate people are working hard to build a brand that elevates. This email is filled with business advice, tips, and so much more and is the only place where I really open the floodgates to everything I know and how I have built my own brand. Titled the ‘Inside Layne’ because my hope is that, through it, you can take a faster route to get to your destination. It is absolutely free and if you haven’t had a chance to sign up to receive it, I would love to include you!
Through the years I have created different tools to fill needs that I saw in my own business. Things like The Blog Method Planner and my brand style guide. And now I am making sure they are available to help you grow your business! There will be so much more to come in this area, but you can shop what is currently available here.
While currently being revamped and upgraded, I am so thrilled to be bringing a handful of creative courses to you. Online, self-paced, intentional education to help you up-level your creative skills and learn the ins and outs of building a brand that resonates. Make sure and click here to browse what is coming and sign up for updates to be the first to know when doors open to the course you have your eye on.
All-new beginning this summer and something I am so excited to offer! Consultations are meant to act as that fresh perspective that can sometimes be just what you need to move past a hurdle in your business. Whether it’s to discuss your online presence and how to refine it or maybe it’s to get clear on your content pillars in order to build your audience and drive your business forward. Whatever it is, I am excited to dive in with you and work through what we can during your consultation. Click here to learn more and schedule yours.
I’m thrilled to announce that I am getting my hands dirty once again in designing incredible visuals for fellow small businesses. Whether it is a brand identity suite or building out a unique space online that you have been craving for your business, I will be opening up my schedule for only a few select clients for 2023. I will be available for logo and brand identity design, custom website development, as well as creative direction for things like an upcoming marketing campaign or perhaps new packaging for your products. You can view more information right here as well as fill out the information form so we can set up an initial consultation to see if we would make a good fit.
You can also join the business side of KaraLayne.com over on Instagram now! I’ll be sharing behind-the-scenes of content creation, projects I am getting to work on with you, and more.
I have a true passion for small business, intentional content creation, and building a brand that resonates. A brand that makes people feel something in a world that is burdened by empty content and the need for instant gratification. With 15 years of experience in many different facets of business, creative or otherwise, I am thrilled to offer ways that we can work together to stand out above the noise. I hope you feel inspired, but most of all, I hope you are able to find something that will help you grow your business.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s get to work!
