Client Feature - Lesley Bosch
Tell me a little about your business
I am an interior designer and have been in the industry since 2011 working for various design-build construction firms. I am slowly starting to build up my own design clients to start living the dream of being my own boss.
Why did you decide to invest in branding/website design (Or both)
I decided to invest in branding because with being in design, people judge you on appearances. I wanted to have a brand that I could update my website portfolio and business cards. I wanted something modern with a feminim charm. Believe it or not, there are a lot of designers in the area and I needed to be more active and present online and in social media.
What were you struggling with most in your business before investing in brand design?
I was struggling with not having a consistent brand and getting my name out there. Now I am not ashamed of my brand and love to tell people to go and check it out!
How did investing in branding help your business?
It has helped me with my confidence in telling people that I am starting to slowly go out on my own as a designer. I’m still not fully on my own so hopefully I will have an amazing update for you when I get there... soon!
What do you love most about working for yourself?
Being able to focus on the items of great importance for every client- it is true that they come first. Not to mention working from home with my dog! (You would melt if you saw him).
What are your next business goals?
My goals are to go fully out on my own and hopefully expand my network circle to areas outside of the county and starting to help more people in different regions remotely. It would be fun to do all sorts of design projects from ultra modern to rustic cabins!
Any advice for people just starting out or wanting to create their own business?
Know what you want to do and go for it. Make sure your brand is professional and up to date. You want to stay ahead of the curve and your clients will appreciate it!
