Q and A with Heather from Prairieville, Louisiana
“If your heart is in it, you will find a way to make it work. I’m cheering you on!”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I’m very passionate about art and design! I grew up doing crafts and having a genuine love for creativity. I fell in love with web design when I was a teenager and started building websites for fun. After art school, I worked as a video game designer until I decided to start my own business in 2008. At that point, I had been creating websites in my spare time for about 10 years. I was more than ready to use my education and passion for web design and turn it into a thriving business! I’ve now worked with over 500 female entrepreneurs by helping them launch beautiful brands and websites. I absolutely love what I do and that I get to work with so many amazing women from all over the world!
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: My mother was always very supportive of my hobbies and crafts, and we often did a lot of them together. To this day, we are still working on projects for my kids or for ourselves. Once I discovered websites (and Myspace), I fell in love with web design and wanted to learn everything that I could. I taught myself how to code, how to run a business (aka wear #allthehats), and how to market myself. Well, I’m still working on that one. [She winks.] I’m a big advocate of online courses.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: My business has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs, and yours probably will be too at some point. I think that this is normal and something that not many business owners talk openly about. Finding your path in business and in life can be hard and discouraging at times, but don’t give up! There are many tearful details that were not mentioned above, because my journey was not a direct path to success and six figures. But if your heart is in it, you will find a way to make it work. I’m cheering you on!
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: To me, feminism means supporting and empowering other women. I’m honored to support my female clients through my services and products, but also by just being someone they can chat with about all things business and life.
