In August of 2007, I found myself in a precarious situation. A newlywed, a new home owner and four months pregnant, I was shocked to learn that I was going to be laid-off from my job of five years. I knew that no one would hire me while I was showing and even if someone did, I would have to take off again for maternity leave in a few months anyway. I had to get CREATIVE. My family’s livelihood depended on it!
I started Chaos Coordinators as a virtual assistance company. I began by helping out friends who were running or starting their own businesses. They began referring me to their friends. Eventually, my clients began asking me to make logos and websites for them. I loved the creativity of graphic and web design and returned to school to get my Bachelor’s in Graphic Design from the International Academy of Design and Technology. During my return to college, I completed a three month internship at a London design firm. There, I learned the importance of social media and SEO (search engine optimization) and subsequently became addicted to social media.
While in school, I continued running my business, naming it Chaos Coordinators. I realized all of the services that I provided for my clients allowed them the freedom to run their businesses while I coordinated their chaos. Best of all, I absolutely loved what I was doing and realized that getting laid-off was probably the best thing that ever could have happened!
