How to take the not so Conventional Path to Entrepreneurship with Brand and Web Design Expert Sydney of Olivewing Designs
Founder & Dreamer Sydney Smith of Olivewing Designs
Guest Sydney Smith is the Founder of Olivewing Designs, she is a brand and web design expert who helps genuine entrepreneurs bring their vision to life through strategy driven design. In 2017 she had been working a 9-5 for over a year when the nagging feeling kept coming up that this couldn’t be it, there had to be more. She couldn’t fathom another decade, let alone four, of unfulfilling work and minimal pay increases.
In 2018 she took the not so conventional path to entrepreneurship and created her brand and business Olivewing Designs. She uses her background in consumer insights and marketing strategy to her clients build a digital presence that actually converts.
Sydney’s real why behind all of this is to help others live a life of freedom and fulfillment.
“Mindset is the key to success, you can be the most skilled artist, designer, interior designer or at whatever profession you are pursuing, but if you do not believe in yourself you are not going to make it.” Sydney Smith
