The Styled Brand is taught by Graphic and Web Designer Cathy Olson, owner of the design studio Love Inspired Inc.. She has over 15 years experience as a professional graphic designer, and has worked with a range of businesses – big ones like Disney, Costco, Best Buy and Walmart – to small ones like work-from-home moms, working from a desk and a laptop in the wee hours. Cathy started her own design business 7 years ago, and in that time has helped HUNDREDS of businesses find their authentic voice through exploration, social media, marketing, graphics, and web. She has dealt first-hand with starting, running and growing a business, hiring and managing employees, being a wife and mom to a growing family, and teaching and coaching other creatives exactly HOW to do the same thing.
Some testimonials from past students:
“When you work in any creative industry, or work for yourself, most likely you let that seep into every aspect of your being. As full filling as this kind of work can be, it can also be exhausting and overwhelming. It wasn’t until now that I realized I was missing something. I am a designer by trade, and I wasn’t designing my life! The number one thing that I loved about this was the confidence Cathy instilled in all us to take control. We truly have the power to design a life we love. There is a place where work and family coexist without guilt, and where we can do our best work free from burnout. I am so excited about the directions my life and business will take with this new found knowledge and support.”
“Cathy encouraged me to really think about how I spend my time. I also took a long hard look at my business practices and the reasons behind why I do things a certain way and where improvements could be made. I walked away with a clear picture of what I need to implement in my business and a list of action items. More importantly, I feel encouraged and inspired to actually get those things done!”
“Cathy helped me spend less time on the things that I don’t enjoy, while spending more time on my creative projects. I feel like my creativity has grown as I have gotten more inspired to spend time on the fun parts of what I do. During these weeks, I have given up some of my responsibilities to spend more time on fun projects. I am so happy that my work and quality has gotten better as I am zoning in on the type of work I do. I also started raising my prices on my cakes and will be raising prices on other things I offer as well. By raising my cake prices, I’ve been able to hire an assistant to make the process of baking and decorating go quicker and free up my time. I used to work 7 days a week, but I am now working 6 days a week and spending Sundays with my family. This is HUGE for me as I previously had no life/work balance and worked 24/7. I am making a conscious effort to stop working at a certain time each night and eat dinner and spend time with my family. It doesn’t happen every day, but at least it happens a few times a week and will start happening more as I keep working towards my goals. Thank you Cathy for all of your inspiration! I still have work to do, but I now know what needs to be done, what my priorities are, and have a clear vision for my businesses, know the type of clients I want to work with, and I see that I can’t say yes to everything, and I know I need to pay for help to make it all happen. I have learned SO much.”
“Being a business owner, wife, and mother of 3 little ones can be challenging at times. Last year, I was helping my kids with homework while answering emails on my phone, and ordered pizza for dinner far too many times. This has made such a difference in the way I schedule my day! And Cathy is awesome!! If you want to design a new and better way of doing things, go get your spot!”
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I’m so busy and overwhelmed already. Will I have time for this group coaching? Can I register, but start it later when I know things will have quietened down? This is a group coaching program and your best work will be done if you truly are READY to re-launch your business. If you aren’t quite ready to start, but ARE still willing to devote a few hours a week, you can still join us. We do ask that you give this coaching program the commitment of at least 3 hours a week. My office hours are only available during your month of purchase, and during our live weekly coaching calls. If you cannot attend the live coaching calls, a recording will be sent to you. After the group coaching finishes, you will have access to ALL the recordings and content for at least 3 months.
When does the coaching start? Registration opens July 15! Coaching session is the whole month of August 2015. You’ll be able to download all content and access the course site for three months after the program finishes.
How much time can I expect to spend per week? This can be very low-key if you’re a busy gal. You’ll get new content on Mondays. We’ll start with a lesson and worksheets.

Some people may work through the content more quickly, and others may want to spend more time.
