Let me guess…
You had a baby. Or finished college. Or your boss crossed the line one time too many. Maybe you moved far from home to be with the guy. (Samesies on that last one!)
… And now you’re secretly planning your next steps.
✓ Using your creativity
✓ Ability to work from wherever
✓ Fabulous pay
✓ Working on your own schedule
(“Well hello 9 AM yoga class!”)
Oh friend, I so get it. Just a couple years ago I was in your exact same shoes. (Speaking of which, those are cute, where did you get them?!)
Being a Squarespace designer feels like it could tick all the boxes for you.
But you have some fears
“Who’s going to take me seriously as a web designer, I didn’t study that!”
“Proper portfolio? Mmm about that… I don’t actually have one.”
“Being responsible for my own paycheque feels kinda terrifying.”
“What if I fall flat on my face and fail? What will my family say then?”
To be honest, it all started in a bar in Mississippi.
I bumped into a very charming German guy in a bar in college. After a year of long-distance dating, I pulled the cliche ‘buy a one-way ticket move’ to be with him in Europe.
After landing in Germany I realized that with my non-existent German skills, my job prospects were, well… none.
(So much for that Masters degree I never used!)
Thankfully, I had built a blog and a couple sites before for fun on Squarespace and that was about the extent of my “very professional website design education.”
But without a job in Germany, I’d be forced to go back home.
So I threw caution to the wind and opened my own Squarespace web design business online.
It was all very official of course. I spent months Googling how to build Squarespace sites from my couch and actually got pretty decent at landing clients online and building websites.
After completely booking out my design services months in advance, I had a new problem on my hands.
“How do I handle all the inquiries coming my way?”
That’s when I switched over to teaching my Squarespace and business skills to others so I could actually serve all the people coming my way.
I did it all from my (new, greatly-improved) couch. (Oh and I married the German guy!)
So if you’re ready to chase your dream and build a Squarespace design business, then I’m going to be the best Cheer Mom you’ve ever had!
