Growing up poor I used to here people say, “Do what you love and the money will follow!” and I remember thinking, “Is that just something rich people say to throw poor people off??” :-/ ?? I mean, seriously.
20 years later after a ridiculous amount of hard work and a lot of trial and error I figured out for myself what it takes to get unstuck. To do something you love and feel good about the money you are making. Looking back I realized most of the advice people were giving was very 30,000 ft. . Stuff that didn’t make sense to the person I was. The person struggling day to day living off $15 a week to eat.
Today I have a successful coaching and consulting practice, and this winter I am launching Smart Women Making Money - Empowering Women to know their value and claim their worth!
Through our membership, programs, and seminars, women will learn:
-How not to sell themselves short in life or business
-The communication skills to present themselves confidently
-What to do when they feel nervous about making an important decision
-How to ask for what they want
-How to say no without feeling guilty
-The skill set to sell and influence.
-Money management skills
-How to make more money with the skills they have
-How to ask for a raise - heck- how to leave their job!!
....and so much more.
More than anything this is about empowering women to live their best life. ( As hokey as that sounds ) ;-)
The target market is 27-45, women. I want the logo to be fresh and current with an element of fun. I want it to appeal to professional women and but not smell corporate-y.
The type of Industry I selected below is business and consulting because it was the closest thing, but Smart Women Making Money is really going to be a community. I think seminars, online videos and coaching is a better description. I very much would love an image that I can put on journals, yoga mats, etc.. )
This conversation with the ladies will be in person and online. It's to be light and fun with a good dose of tough love and reality checks.
I would like the logo to have Energy and feel powerful. Not powerful, in a "I dominate you way, but powerful in a, "I own myself" kind of way.
The colors will be white, gold, and green. - I am open to the shades of green. Nothing too heavy or dark. Again we want it to be light and with energy!
I have included photos from recent photo shoot that will be used on flyers and with logos in the near future as well as on the site we create after we get our logo so you get a feel for me and the energy of SWMM.
The photos are obviously going to change again and again. I just want to provide a little context if that helps a little more.
Really excited to see what you create and have a wonderful time creating this!
