1. What's your top 5?
2. How do you see them playing in your life?
In a multitude of ways - however namely in the ease of doing what I love best! - I am good at various tasks within my work -and therefore it takes less time and in turn less costs for my clients when they embrace creative license and enabling me to soar with there designs!
3. What's your favorite theme?
Probably positivity - As I am one of the lucky ones who embraces changes and can normally find the upside to every painful lesson.
4. What's the one theme that "get's in your way?"
Definitely the individualization - I need unique - different - never seen before …. Clients sometimes not so much. They occasionally call me and ask me to replicate a design I’ve done previously and I prefer not to . Design is as unique , as the individuals who reside there. I simply believe your own uniqueness should be a part of the design - not someone else’s ..
5. How has knowing your top 5 empowered you to live a more authentic life?
It has empowered me to Own my Gifts - I no longer apologize for wanting to create unique custom things , (sometimes a little bit costly things) If you want Prefab times - thats wonderful, and its not incorrect. I simply realize I need the oxygen that creativity provides me when I am concept-ing from my heart the most amazing element that isn’t available to the masses.
Clients who feel that they cannot afford my services , sometimes scale back a project - instead of doing a whole floor - we may tackle 3 rooms - SPOILER ALERT - you will quickly see the difference and rush to afford phase 2 :)
I never connected the dots on this theme before - but its truly innate . I am also a boutique shopper vs. big box I would prefer my personal style to be individual and chic - vs . Mass production purchase on line - I'm not a label person - I like quality above quantity , and need to share that in my work.
