“The secret to getting ahead, is getting started.” --Mark Twain
"Too many times, I hear from business owners, that they are just not sure about how to get started. Marketing today is overwhelming, we have to be diligent in finding a plan that works and makes sense for your business and then implement it. Set a plan or make a goal to do just one thing each day toward marketing your business and you'll be surprised the headway you can make." -Lisa
Caitlin Shepard is the newest addition to the Dream On Team. Caitlin is from Caney, Kansas and she recently graduated from Pittsburg State University with her Bachelor of Science in Technology, majoring in Graphic Communications with an emphasis in Graphic Design and a minor in Marketing. While cultivating and refining her design and marketing skills at PSU, she also discovered that her passion was with helping small businesses and organizations grow.
Some of Caitlin's interests include coffee, playing musical instruments, antiquing, traveling, and photography. Along with using her design skills for Dream On, she also maintains her own small photography business where she specializes in portraiture.
"Good design is a lot like clear thinking made visual.” --Edward Tufte
This is the design philosophy that Caitlin lives by. "I want the branding process to be broken down in to simple steps for our clients," says Caitlin, "This means that when I take on creating the branding for your small business, it's going to be well thought-out. Having clear communication with your audience is vitally important, and using the proper steps to get there is just as crucial."
