Alumni Success Story

Lina Adjogble, Create With Lina

Tell me about yourself. Who are you and what do you do?

I'm a web and brand designer. I've been in business since May 2017. I primarily work with coaches.

What were you struggling with before Designing to Delight?

I had no clue how to put all the pieces of my (non-existence) process together. That resulted in loss of time and money.

I didn't have set boundaries and that led to many frustrations.

Why did you signup?

I was just getting started with my business and I was a hot mess :). I needed directions on everything – from intake questions to delivery and support. I didn't know what I was doing and needed for that to change.

What was your biggest takeaway from the course?

OMGoodness. It's night and day. The biggest change is I now know what I'm doing and I've achieved 'expert status' in the eyes of many, and my own.

I know how to talk about my process (during calls), and I know how to implement the said process. I am confident in my abilities to actually lead projects to completion.

How has Designing to Delight helped your business?

Before Designing to Delight, I had ZERO processes. And it was a mess. I was basically figuring things out as I went. That, of course, impacted the way I viewed myself and how much I was charging.

After the course, I gained so much more confidence, and the amount of time I'm saving is mindblowing.

The other thing that changed (very unexpectedly) is I became a much better designer. I am self-taught, with a business that was 4 months old when I bought the course.The course taught me design principles that would have taken me SO much longer to figure out by myself!

The fact that the Facebook groups members are supportive, and that Christine is so kind, are icing on the cake.

How do you feel about your design process now?

I now feel very confident about my process. I know exactly how to onboard clients and what to do at each step. I am also confident in charging more and explaining why. I also know how to set healthy boundaries. Heck, I can own being a web designer, and a good one at that!

What would you say to someone who's thinking about taking the course?

Do it! Even with a business that was very new, with very limited financial resources, this was the best investment I made in my business so far. 

I can't put a price on the confidence, knowledge and support I've gained with this course. The step-by-step help, examples, and templates are exactly what you need to succeed.
