How to Stop Over-Complicating and Over-Thinking Every Decision

By Krista Smith / September 21, 2018

I’ve noticed a trend with my clients (and ummm, in myself!) when it comes to making an important decision for our businesses. We can tend to overcomplicate and/or overthink it. There are times when it’s more prevalent than others but often it comes up during one of these situations: when it’s time for a change when you need to make a decision when you want to launch a new service or product when you want to create a passive income opportunity when it’s time to examine your business model when it’s time to scale when it’s time to actually create…

An Insiders Look At The Top 10 Tools I Use to Run My Business

By Krista Smith / September 5, 2018

How To Get Over Your Fear of Doing Video

By Krista Smith / August 28, 2018

Can you believe that August is ALMOST over? I’ve had the best summer – no big travel and lots of staycation mini moments. Today I wanted talk about a hot topic – video – and include my thoughts on why I think so many women are ambivalent to using it on social media. I’ve been having some REAL results and conversations happening on Instagram using video over the summer.

What’s usually happened is that I’ve added a featured image but then changed my mind and changed the photo out. SOMEHOW, Facebook found that original photo and it might seem like they’ll never forget about it! What really happens is that Facebook serves cached versions of our posts.

What You Should Really Know About Adding Prices to Your Website

By Krista Smith / July 6, 2018

But as a web designer and business coach for female entrepreneurs, I find all too often my clients are hesitant to include sales information on their websites.

We want our clients to respect the integrity of the our work beyond the integrity of the price tag. Today, I want to talk about why publishing prices…

Where do I start when developing a logo for my new business?

By Krista Smith / June 12, 2018

This question comes up at least once a week with my clients. I know you’ve been wondering about it to. Where do I start when developing a logo for my creative business? Let’s get something out of the way right out of the gate. In today’s landscape, a logo is quite simply a recognizable graphic design element that illustrates your business name.
