5 Ways to Protect Your Time as a Designer

August 13, 2020

Let’s get one thing straight, friend. Running your own business can be lonely at times, but that doesn’t mean you have to walk this journey alone! During a season where we’re spending more time at home, isolated from family and friends, it’s important we cultivate connection so we can lift one another up.

Which is just one of the many reasons I am SO EXCITED for the new community for designers we’ve created just for YOU!

Inside this community, we’re kicking off with a free Work Less, Earn More 5-day challenge for Designers on August 17th with my sweet friends, Kelly and Andra over at With Grace and Gold.

And we would love to have you join us!

We wanted to create this little challenge to help you not only grow the design business of your dreams, but also to remind you that you aren’t alone in this entrepreneurial journey.

I used to believe that success happened in the hustle. I believed that in order to earn more, I had to do more. But I unintentionally put myself on the fast-track path to burnout and overwhelm. Can you relate? Here are 5 ways to protect your time as a designer. | b is for bonnie design #fordesigners #brandstrategy

5 Ways to Protect Your Time as a Designer

We like to think of this 5-day challenge as “5 ways to protect your time” because over the course of these five transforming days, we’ll be peeling back the curtain on how we built our successful 6+ figure businesses without working crazy hours or adding more to our plates.

And we know you can walk away from this experience doing the same.

This challenge will give you the framework you need in order to hit consistent $10k months, jump off that endless hamster wheel of hustle, and experience more creative freedom in your design business.

Why You Need to Protect Your Time

Here’s the thing, friend. When I first started my design business back in 2012, I made the mistake of listening to the “experts.” You know the type, the well-intending educators and entrepreneurs who are telling you all the things you should do in order to achieve success.

They believe the key to getting more branding clients ( and making more money!) is to:

…Work harder

…Longer hours

…Add more projects

…Hustle to get out in front of your ideal clients

And I completely disagree.

Going “all in” ALL the time is just a recipe for burnout.

I used to believe that success happened in the hustle. I believed that in order to earn more, I had to do more.

But I unintentionally put myself on the fast-track path to burnout and overwhelm.

Can you relate?

I decided to make a HUGE change and discovered the business secrets that no one was teaching: a heartfelt approach to building a brand design business that consistently hits $10k months WITHOUT adding more to my plate.

AND, I’m partnering with my sweet friends, Kelly and Andra over at With Grace and Gold to share their business system secrets they used to elevate their client experience, streamline their workflows and processes, and multiply their multiple-six-figure business all inside this totally free 5-day challenge for designers.

There’s still time to join us before we kick off the party on August 17 so head on over and join the party!

How will this community help you and protect your time?

Over the five days together, we will hop on daily Facebook Lives inside our exclusive Challenge Facebook Group to teach you:

  1. The 3 mistakes keeping you from experiencing consistent income in your design business
  2. How to leverage brand strategy to supercharge your design business
  3. The tools you need to multiply your time through strategic workflows
  4. How to prioritize your own business growth
  5. And how to take intentional action all while protecting your time!

Think of this as our way to hang out (virtually, of course!) where we share all of the secrets we’ve learned over the years. 

The best part?

We’re putting together some amazing giveaways to those who join us inside the Challenge LIVE!

Will I see you there? This will change EVERYTHING when it comes to how you approach your design business and your time.

My name is Bonnie – I’m a brand designer, strategist, and writer which all adds up to one eclectic conglomeration of qualities that enables me to serve you well! Past clients have dubbed me "the Joanna Gaines of brand design," and I've had more than a few call me a dream maker, a game changer, and a design wizard (my Harry Potter-loving heart didn't hate that one, let me tell you!). At the end of the day, I'm a big-hearted creative who will get teary-eyed as you share the heart behind your business; who will lose sleep over the perfect font pairings and color selections to bring your brand to life visually; and who will work tirelessly to empower, encourage, and equip you to share your work with the world intentionally.
