Getting out of your own way

Hi! I hope that everyone is faring well. It is hard to believe that we have been dealing with covid for nearly 5 months! Almost a half of a year has passed. As I work hard daily to overcome the fears and anxieties of business now coupled with that of the pandemic, I find myself constantly evaluating the approach to what I do as a designer. 

My brother, Todd said something to me the other day that really resonated. He told me that the world needs to see Carly of Carly Home. This isn't something that had not been told to me before, but it is the first time it actually sank in! While the name of the company is my name, I realized that there has been nearly no view into me as a designer/human. This is because I am simply NOT the best at marketing my line, let alone myself. When the time comes to promote and share, I basically get stuck. Do any of you feel the same way? 

For a long time, there has been an internal battle between what to and what to not post. It surprises me that this is where life has lead. A life through a screen. I realize now that it is not changing. If anything, this life on screen is becoming more and more our reality as we all sit home wondering when things will return to normal. So, with that said, I guess its best to get on the bandwagon if I plan to make some sort of impact. So, here it goes! 

 xo, Carly
