My Side Hustle

I love this article by Mashable called "Why You Need a Side Hustle". I started my side hustle, DESIGN x LIANA, in the fall and I've been really pleased with where it has taken me. Designing resumes and personal stationery has...

  1. Given me opportunity to practice graphic design. I can never get enough of that. 
  2. Taught me more about branding. When customers come to me for a consultation, I have to be strategic in asking for their needs, wants and projections. Knowing how to ask the right questions to get the information that I need to make the customer happy is the essence of account services. 
  3. Thickened my skin to criticism and feedback. When you're working with customers that typically know little about branding and design, you learn patience...lots of patience.
