How to Avoid Decision Fatigue in Business

I’ve been thinking about how I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD and yet, I’ve figured out a way to plan my content for Quarters in my business. And I started wondering if that was unusual for someone with ADHD.  “Can ADHD people plan ahead?” 👈 That’s what I Googled. Am I the only one who literally […]

Being More Productive in Business

How hanging with friends can help you get more done I’m talking about the idea of Body doubling. It’s the idea that you have a friend working beside you (in person or virtually) and not even necessarily on the same thing.  It’s like how toddlers play next to each other but not actually together. That’s […]

Online Business Ain’t Easy…

Ok, so I always talk about how running a business is hard AF, but since I’m also usually talking about my kid sticking a bead up his nose, or recipes I’ve made, or Cocaine Bear… it might seem like I don’t struggle. But I think it’s hard for everyone. Right? I mean, look at all […]

How to Create a More Personal Personal Brand

So I have this thing in my car where I can just say “Hey Spotify…” and then say whatever I want it to play. The other day I said, “Hey Spotify, play songs by The Pixies” but I sorta choked on my spit when I said it. 😅 I think it thought I said “Fity” […]

How Pop Culture Can Influence Our Lives and Businesses

Last week we lost an icon. Or at least he’s an icon in the Seymour household. Paul Reubens. Aka… Pee Wee Herman. I think he deserves a lot of credit for the wacky, zainy, creative spirit that I am today. And I realize that’s a pretty bold statement. Pee Wee’s Playhouse aired from 1986 – […]

Storytelling Content Done Right

I couldn’t decide what to write about this week. I was trying to figure out how to relate that show The Bear to something businessy. Have you seen it? I love it! 🐻😍 Then I was thinking maybe I’d talk about Kelly Clarkson on Watch What Happens Live talking about which emoji she used the […]

Stop Buying Courses

Last week I wanted to buy a Powerball ticket on the way home from a friend’s house, but I missed the cut-off. It was up to a billion dollars and I just felt like the universe was calling me to get one. It was probably just the enormous billboard I passed on the highway, but […]

Could Less Content Mean Better Content?

I’ve been trying to eat more fruits and veggies. Ya know, working on my life force and all. So I decided to make some Gazpacho. A summery cold soup. (please note: this is NOT my gazpacho, it’s a stock photo from Canva. Mine was not camera worthy…keep reading. 😂) I did what one tends to do […]

The Power of A Content Plan

Remember maps? Like using an actual atlas when you were on a road trip? This is the same one I had tucked into the seat back pocket when I had one. I found it on eBay. 🤣 1997… what a year. That’s my yearbook photo (two tone hair… totally on brand) and a DARE shirt […]

How to Run a Business & Not Be On Your Phone

“I think we should really try to be on our phones less this weekend,” I said. “I agree.” Matt replied. “But I feel like everyone always gets so defensive when you try to call them out for being on their cell phones…maybe we should have a code word!”  “Ok… like what?” “Hmmm… coconut baby?” Who […]

How to Plan a Vacation in Your Business

I’m gearing up to take some time off over here. And since I’m a service based business with retainer clients and custom projects, I’ve been working hard to get my to-do list all checked off so I can check out when I hit the road tomorrow. I don’t think I’ve officially told you that I […]

I’m Rebranding The Podcast

Welp. I’ve been working on a lil’ something behind the scenes, and I’m FINALLY ready to spill the beans.  My regular podcast is getting a little makeover!  Introducing…. It’s not usually my style to slow my roll and really think things through, but I’ve been thinking about this for a couple months and it’s been […]

You’re in Charge of Your Content Recipe

Matt played a show on Saturday, and my mother-in-law was in town and could watch the kids, so I got to go! 🎉 We’ve been on a strict self-imposed budget in the Seymour house since January, but I was hitting the town and ready to drop twelve bucks on a spicy margarita. Last summer I […]

My Secret Marketing Plan

 There’s no secret agenda here, I’m a graphic designer, not a salesperson. I like making fun content and sharing it with people who get me and think it’s funny. (aka people like you) Then hopefully when you need some cool graphic design work, you think, “I should hit up dd!” That’s my big, secret, marketing plan. 😂

Design Is More Than Just Decoration

The year was 2009 and my best friend’s kiddo was turning one. We went to pick up the cake at the grocery store and as we waited, she showed me the photo in the book where she picked it out.  When the person behind the counter emerged with the cake we felt like we were […]

The Not-So-Fun Things in Business

So admittedly I talk a LOT about doing the things that feel fun for you in your business.

My stance is that if you do the things you think are fun, you’ll do them consistently and stay on track to meet your goals.

Make your own dang content plan! Trigger Warning: Breastfeeding, Formula, and Mom Struggles… Fed is Best

Make your own dang content plan!

Trigger Warning: Breastfeeding, Formula, and Mom Struggles… I didn’t breastfeed my daughter. Well, I tried for about 4 weeks, and I hated every second of it. It kicked up some serious anxiety I have and was making me miserable. There was one time when she was screaming, I was crying, and I looked at Matt […]

Why I Don’t Have Package Pricing

When I was a teacher people would say things like: 😐 “Don’t smile for the first 9 weeks”  🙅‍♀️ “I’m not here to make friends” 😠 “I don’t care if they like me, I’m here to teach” Ew. I always just smiled and nodded and then went and started learning how to do the stanky legg. […]

Static 9 Grid Update

It’s been almost 8 months to the day since I put my Static 9 Grid up on Instagram. I thought it would be interesting to let you know if I’m still into it. The short answer: Heck YES! 💥 I haven’t had to worry about posting to my grid for 8 whole months which is […]
