Bruna Mebs: Goodness Illustrated

Nov 19, 2018
 

Here are the highlights of my interview with Bruna Mebs: Goodness Illustrated on Women Developing Brilliance.

Who is Bruna Mebs?

Bruna Mebs is a lifestyle brand. She started off as a costume designer and then transitioned into full-time illustration. She quickly realized that she wanted to do more and get her work into people’s lives in a bigger way - the lifestyle brand happened naturally out of that desire.

After spending some time in NYC and LA, she currently resides in PA with her husband and bulldog Achilles.


I find that nothing fulfills me as much as being creative does. I am constantly inspired by historical movies, vintage clothing, medieval tales, and old books. Creating a brand that incorporated my art, lifestyle and the classic aesthetic that I love was and is my life's dream. I am very grateful to be able to do what I love everyday. And I hope I can help others do the same.

How To Prepare For A Branding Photoshoot

Nov 16, 2018

Tips to save you time, money, and frustration when getting new headshots for your business.

Ahh…branding. It’s such a magical process!

And so crucial to differentiate you from other people in your industry. Being a visual person, in the very beginning, I used to think having a wide array of colors and styles to represent my business showed creativity. Years later, I completely see the value of a well put together brand, with a polished logo, complimentary color palette, and flowing consistent message.

A part of the branding package also includes professional photos. Think about the powerful images that speak to you throughout the day, whether it be on social platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, or in brand ads and billboards. Visual association is increasingly the top way to attract attention, followers, and potential clients.

So, how do you prepare for a branding photoshoot for your business? Let me share what I learned from my...

Are you a forever learner thirsty for any advantage that could help increase revenue in your business? OR Maybe you’re on the fence about creating your new business but fear, overwhelm, and self-doubt are holding you back?

How to Bust Through a Business Lull

Nov 02, 2018

Despite putting in the work, there are times when it feels like our business is “stuck,” like something is holding up the flow.

It’s tempting to start questioning…well, everything — but don’t do that!

There are natural cycles of highs and lows that occur in any business.

1. Re-evaluate Your Expectations

It’s very common to have unrealistic expectations when it comes to growing a business. Just by glancing through Facebook, you can see an avalanche of ads like “My Blueprint for a 6-figure Launch” and “Live the Laptop Lifestyle in 3 Easy Steps.”

In business, just like in life, it takes a tremendous amount of consistent effort to see results. The experts agree that on average, it takes 2–3 years for a new business to begin to see a profitable return. So take a breath, be patient, and enjoy the process.

2. Breakout of Your Box

Are you a little shy? Do you feel more...

10 Ways to Beat Burnout

Oct 26, 2018

Before it Takes You and Your Business Down

Burnout sucks!

It literally has the power to drain us on a mental, physical, and emotional level.

Before we dive into the steps to prevent or soothe burnoutlet’s define it.

Burnout is caused by prolonged stressors over a period of time. Merriam-Webster defines burnout as “exhaustion of physical or emotional strength or motivation usually as a result of prolonged stress or frustration.”

Symptoms can range from mild to severe and can include: exhaustion, depression, lack of motivation, lifelessness, apathy, frustration, feeling overwhelmed, cynicism, hopelessness, prone to illness, and the like. These are not fun!

There are countless articles and studies on stress and the negative effects it has on our health. Suffice it to say that busy professionals easily get into the “fight or flight” mode and often overlook daily basic habits which promote well-being. These are the habits that...

Stop Pushing Yourself So Hard

Oct 19, 2018

Do you ever feel like you’re racing around so much that your life is a blur?

The other day, I was talking to a good friend of mine who is also a business owner. She was telling me that she has been terribly exhausted, to the point of having to go to bed by 6:30 pm on some nights. She continued to say that something “felt fundamentally off” within her body. This was very concerning. I wanted to exclaim: “Stop pushing yourself so hard!”

We were confirming a meeting for the following day so that I could help with setting up her blog. I suggested that we postpone it until she felt more rested and nourished instead of cramming one more thing into her Friday afternoon. Her response was, “Oh, I will be totally fine by tomorrow.”

Why do we do this to ourselves?

I see this tendency, especially with women, to push ourselves…even past the point of exhaustion. Is it because of an ancestral influence? A drive for perfectionism?...
