About Darlin' Marketing

Once upon a time I ran an Etsy shop, was an influencer on Instagram, and did graphic design work on the side. After years of juggling multiple jobs, I decided to settle into a more conventional work setting, and I landed a job as a creative director for an ecommerce clothing brand.

Life was grand! I was doing what I loved while learning loads along the way. And wouldn't you know, life got even better once I found out that I was going to have my first baby!

But just how life is full of ups, they are usually accompanied by a few downs. One week after returning from maternity leave I was let go from my job. I went from being the happiest I'd ever been, to feeling completely devastated and lost.

After a few hopeless weeks, I decided to pick myself up and take this "down" life had thrown at me and turn it into something positive. I became determined to make my life and career something I had control over, and most importantly, I decided it was possible to build my dream job all while raising my daughter.

Armed with the knowledge that I've learned over the past 10 years working in a variety of creative fields, I am now on a mission to show fellow female entrepreneurs that they have what it takes to turn their talents and passions into successful businesses.
