Tell us your bold boss story!

Oh, boy. Where do I begin?? I've always known I'd run my own business ever since I was a kid. I just didn't know exactly what it would be. After I graduated college, I opened up a web design and branding studio. At that same time I also gave birth to my oldest and started to learn how to work my camera. Don't all moms do that?!? 😃 So while I ran the web design business online I also took photos on the side for friends and family. However, the weight of owning a creative business took its toll and after a few years, so I took a break. In that time off I was able to explore more about who I am, what my purpose in business is, and my next step. And now, because of that break, my newest venture Oak + Feather Films was born. I'm a techy girl who has fallen in love with video. I've taken my love of marketing, branding, and story to help creatives and moms share their story through video. The videos I create will help artists, designers, or makers connect with their audience. They'll help keep those small gestures and personalities of a two year old locked up to see 20 years from now. The main goal is to help creatives or families share their story in a new and unique way.

We're all about bold boss moments, tell us about one of yours!

I think the biggest one was when I closed down my web design business after 5 years. It was hard. I had people asking all the time to design things but in truth, I didn't have the passion or the time anymore. It was VERY hard to say no. Other than that, I think day-to-day networking is as bold as I can get. 

What advice or words of encouragement do you have for the Bold Boss Tribe?

Don't be afraid to change directions and go after the thing you LOVE -- that makes your heart skip a beat and that you're totally and utterly passionate about. It will be A LOT of work to make the change, but in the end if it's what you should be doing it'll be all worth it!
