What’s been going on with Loonar?

Here are 6 things you need to build one

At the beginning of the year I took a leap of faith and decided to push my studio in a new direction. I had to make some changes, drop some clients and make room for growth. This was a hard decision to make as I just bought my first time home with my partner and Christmas was approaching. But I thought sod it, I’m making a change!

This year has been such an amazing year for Loonar Creative. I’ve learnt so much about myself and how to be the best I can be for my clients. Since making the decision to change things up I’ve done more than I thought I could. From taking on a mentor to finding new clients that love the work I do for them, made a world of difference to my business. 

But here are a few things that happened in the past 10 months:

  • I learnt what my personality type is and I now better understand people’s behaviours through the Queen of Behaviours coaching sessions (highly recommend)
  • Through working with my mentor at the Business Growth Hub, I know more about running a creative business and how to grow it.
  • I’ve attended online sessions with the Business Growth Hub, and networked with some amazing people.
  • I’ve discovered that I want to go into the TV & Film industry as a subsidiary of Loonar Creative and have been making a lot of progress in getting my name out there.
  • I changed my business name from Loonar Studio to Creative because someone else decided to use my company name, but I much prefer Creative now anyway.
  • I’ve begun selling my fine art paintings and opened up a side business which I’ll be putting my time into next year.
  • I upgraded my mac and now have a real desk space set up… no more working from the kitchen table for Liz!
  • I keep pushing myself to be more visible on social media and not overthink everything… (still a work in progress)
  • I know my weaknesses and strengths so I can set boundaries with clients on what I can do and what I can help them source.
  • I’m getting better at recognising the signs of burnout and taking time to rest.
  • I’ve learnt that showing my personality isn’t going to make me look unprofessional.
  • Gained new clients who have been amazing and just given me so much confidence.

This month alone, I’ve built a portfolio focusing on clients in the TV & Film industry, I went to Edinburgh to recharge the old batteries and visited the Ray Harryhausen Exhibition, I created my first ever showreel for a client and began designing the interior for a café for another client plus all the other projects I have on the go. It never stops and I love it. 

So my advice from all of this is just go for it. If you’re feeling stuck, bored or just want a bigger goal… make room for change and learn to let go. This could be anything from taking on a new business course, hiring a mentor or refreshing your brand!

If you change nothing, nothing will change.
