You're a creative business owner who doesn't quite feel 'at home' in her business. You've laid a foundation, and you've experienced life as a small business owner — but your foundation doesn't yet feel solid or complete. 

You've struggled to connect with your Ideal Client, to balance both work and life, and you're questioning whether small business ownership is for you. You're ready to be seen  as the professional you know you are.

You need an online presence to help you connect with your Ideal Client, to help you feel 'at home' in your journey as a business owner, to begin a new season in your business — and to experience success and consistency like never before.

You're a brand designer, web designer, or stationery designer who is ready to grow and succeed. You're looking for honest education to guide you — but you aren't quite sure where to turn.

You're a designer who feels like she is at a stand-still in her business. Maybe you're not yet booking your Ideal Client, or maybe you aren't sure how to make your part-time passion a full-time career.

You're seeking honest business education from designers who have been there; designers who have served diverse creatives, who earn a multiple six-figure salary, who will not only encourage you — but will also equip you to experience meaningful and lasting success.

FROM OUR CLIENTS AND OUR SWEET FRIENDS 

After working with With Grace and Gold, I have a brand that exceeds my expectations, a website that I can call home (and that I cannot stop looking at) and lastly, a renewed confidence for where my business is headed! With Grace and Gold gave my business life! From the very beginning, they knew just how to create a brand that is true to me and my work. They blew me out of the water with their impeccable taste in design, their speedy workflow, and their amazing attention to detail. I am have renewed confidence in my brand and I'm excited to share it with the world!

The entire branding and web design process was seamless. They run their business like a well oiled machine – in the best of ways. They’re in sync with each other, with their clients' needs, and with the market. They understood what I needed even if I couldn’t articulate it all that well – and that, to me, is key! They handle themselves and their business with grace, humility and an air of professionalism that’s rare and beautiful. I’m indebted to them for all they have done in my life – both professionally and personally.

Before working with With Grace and Gold, I saw my business as just a dream. I knew what I wanted to do, what I could do, and that I was more than capable of doing all of these things; but I wasn't confident in my presentation. After working with With Grace and Gold, I feel much more confident in my business, my presentation of my services, and the heart behind it all. Kelly and Andra are an absolute DREAM TEAM. They are so kind, professional, and (true to their name) full of grace. I will recommend With Grace and Gold to all of my creative, small business besties!

Kelly & Andra were honestly such a joy to work with. This was our first major investment in our business. Naturally, we were a bit nervous about how the look and feel of our brand would come together but Kelly & Andra exceeded our expectations at every stage of the design process. Kelly & Andra are exceptionally talented, highly professional, and genuinely kind. They eased our anxiety about the process and transformed our brand into something we could not be more proud of. We look forward to working with Kelly & Andra again in the future!

Before working with you, my brand was all over the place, inconsistent, and lacked cohesion. Now, my brand has a crystal clear aesthetic, looks much more refined, and shows our audience who we are without us having to scream it from the rooftops. I'm forever thankful for you two.

Before I met you both, I felt like I was spinning around in a sea of uncertainty in my business. Throughout our time together, you encouraged me and spoke life into me. You leaned in, delved into my life and my heart, and saw me through God's "looking glass." Your friendship, your love, your encouragement, your vision, and all your hard work made such a powerful impact on my life and on my business, and I'm so grateful for you, Kelly and Andra!

My business needed a complete makeover to reflect its true identity, and With Grace and Gold produced exactly what I'd been dreaming of for years. It's an incredible feeling to be 100% proud of my branding. Every time I visit my website, it feels like I'm coming home. This experience has allowed me to focus on and reach career goals I've been fearful of diving into. I am finally booking my Ideal Client at my ideal price point. My only regret is not taking this leap of faith sooner!

After working with Andra and Kelly, I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders. I can finally say I have a beautiful website that I am proud to share with everyone. My brand is cohesive and lovely, and it just feels like me. After our business consulting meetings, I received some really helpful tools and resources and some great advice. I still have a long way to go to getting organized, but now have a great client management tool, an Instagram planner, and am working toward getting a blog schedule put together. I am finally EXCITED about business. It's not just about taking beautiful images, it's about creating an experience that clients can love and rave about from beginning to end.

Kelly and Andra couldn't be any sweeter! They put together a custom package for us and were so willing to work with us in the the way our business needed. They saw exactly what our needs were, were able to articulate just what we needed, and we couldn't be happier with the final design. We were a little unsure about working with another designer - as we are in the design world ourselves - but we are couldn't be happier with our experience. It was the right decision for us and I'm excited to see where our business goes now thanks to With Grace & Gold! I also feel like Kelly & Andra are there for us if we ever have any questions. They are just so knowledgeable and have such a heart for serving others!

I can't say enough good things about working with the gals from With Grace and Gold! Their whole process is extremely well-planned and executed beautifully — at every stage I felt confident in the progress being made. This is the best investment I have ever made for my business. My new website and business identity are simply stunning — everything I wanted but couldn't visualize or create on my own. And to top it all off, Kelly & Andra are just a complete pleasure to work with!
