My Favorite Affordable Designer for Teacherpreneuers
I'm terrible at meeting new people.
I've always been an introvert and prefer having a few really close friends to scores of acquaintances. I'm the kind of person you find listening to conversations rather than asserting her own voice over the crowd (we were given two ears and one mouth for a reason, after all).
I laugh about it now but was asked by a classmate mid-junior year if I were mute.
I think he was over exaggerating a bit, but I definitely was quiet. I've made incredible progress since then (I say that as if I'm a toddler learning to walk), and I'm definitely only that way until I get to know and feel comfortable with someone.
In any case, meeting new people, striking up conversations, and connecting with others definitely are not my strong suits.
Last year, I came across a new blog while participating in another blogger's linky party. In this particular party, I linked up under "Laugh Eat Learn" and her logo caught my attention. After all - what could be better than someone who loves laughing, eating, and learning enough to create a business with that name?
I clicked the link and was introduced to Alexis Sanchez.
Immediately I knew we needed to be friends.
From her bio and stalking her posts, I learned that we had a ton in common - perfectionism, bi-racial relationships, and a love of food, photography, teaching, dogs, design, fall, movies, fashion, and organization.
I became a follower that day.
Fortunately for me, I didn't scare Alexis away with my subtle hints at connecting and I'm happy to support her this week as one of my favorites.
Recently, she turned her interest in web design into a new business venture. Completely self taught, she works virtual magic transforming boring blog and social media branding into eye-catching designs.
