Years in business: less than 1
I’m Stephanie Guimond, artist, visionary and avid left-brainer. I paint, I dream big and I love spreadsheets.
In 2008 I picked up a paint brush for the first time since kindergarten and haven’t put it down since. My art, like myself, varies in style and personality from the vintage girly to the unexplainable abstract. The most common theme is visibly the feminine, but I’m always exploring…
Working with materials like acrylics, paper, pastels and ink, I’m drawn to an intuitive and fluid approach to painting where images appear organically before being polished into a finished product. Because of this intuitive nature, pieces are heavily influenced by what I’m living the week, the day or the moment they are created. They reflect a personal story that in an odd way infuses them with a universal quality.
I share my home with hubby and Cassie, our Golden Retriever. I left my 9–5 job last fall to try something different, and spend most of my days working in my guest bedroom turned office/studio creating art and other paid work that supports the life I want to create overall.
I am grateful for the opportunity.
current projects: a new Website, growing my business with a new left-brain offering called Get Clear, Get Moving (coming soon!), learning to balance it all in my own way
At this moment, what one idea do you need to start executing for your business?
I am going to cheat and mention two ideas, but they’re very closely related, I promise!
I’ve already started executing this idea, it’s a matter of moving it forward. I’ve recently worked with (very brave!) beta clients offering Get Clear, Get Moving planning & goal setting consultation packages. There are several formats available to me in sharing this content and these offerings, each one with its relative pricing and potential income. A key next step in my business is to figure out which format to launch first and do it.
I want to publish a foundational information product that would become an entry way into my brand and business (consultation services in this case, not art). The intention of this product is to offer a solution to a problem while “teaching” potential clients about my core philosophy and what they need to know before going further with me. I gleaned the concept from Tara Gentile. Her foundational product is The Art of Earning which deals with her money philosophy (that making money should be beautiful) and helps new readers work through money issues before working further with her, therefore attracting people into more advanced programs who are already aligned with her views.
