Charleston Women Summer 2024

28 | | It’s tough to launch a new business, but then to grow that business can seem even more daunting, weeding through all the dos and don’ts. Kim Russo, owner of On Brand Designs, used her past experiences working in a print shop to learn what she should do better as she ventured into her own endeavors. However, Russo was still unsure of how to grow her business, though she had a vision to lean on other professionals. Networking events and time spent with female mentors helped Russo discover what she needed to do to take her business to the next level, skills she’s thrilled to pass on. While she was taking courses, working with coaches, attending seminars and learning all she could, Russo often became frustrated with the layout of the information presented. Being a creative was important to her, and she wanted to make it work for her mind. Sensing others might feel the same, she decided to create The Profitable Brand Designer Course to help aspiring creatives shift from freelancer to entrepreneur. Building on her education, she created processes and systems that work for the creative mindsets. This course is meant to help you grow, with insight and actionable steps designed to stimulate your mind, save you time and offer you a path to success. For more, please visit, or call 843926-6435.
