    Meet Entrepeneur Anita Morris

    Meet Entrepeneur Anita Morris

    Anita Morris is a DIY fashion blogger as well as the creator of Anita by Design. She uses her brand to both inspire and teach women of all ages how to sew their own clothing.
    She believes that when a woman discovers and embraces her own personal style, it boosts confidence and opens the door for amazing creativity with her wardrobe and all areas of life. Anita has a passion to equip women with the necessary tools to make their own garments while empowering them to create fashion that complements their own unique
    body types.
    On Anita’s blog, you will find plenty of DIY inspiration to get you motivated to
    start your own journey as a sewist, refresh your skills, or even to take your sewing passion to the next level. The Anita by Design YouTube channel hosts a beginner’s sewing course. In this class, Anita teaches the basics of sewing with helpful step-by-step instructions. You will also find sew-along videos that walk you through the steps of creating garments with commercial patterns.
    She is a woman of faith and mother of two adult sons who resides in Southern California. In addition to sewing, she enjoys reading, tea parties, lunch dates with friends, and Sisterhood, where women come together to encourage and walk alongside each other.
    I first discovered Anita by Design shortly after her husband became ill. Anita has been through a tragic loss in her family. Since then I have followed her journey on social media and am always touched by the wisdom and grace she has to share. She is a very talented seamstress as well as a brand representative for Babylock Sewing Machines. Today I was able to catch up with Anita and learn more about her sewing journey and how she has dealt with her loss.

    Meet Business Coach and Writer Brian Dixon

    Meet Business Coach and Writer Brian Dixon

    Brian Dixon is a Podcastor, conference speaker, and business coach. He believes that each of us were made for a purpose. You will discover that purpose by clarifying your calling, discovering your audience, and creating your products, which will help you navigate a clear path to impact and income.
    Brian is passionate about helping authors, speakers, and aspiring messengers create a sustainable business through growing their platform, and creating compelling online courses. He is the co-founder of hope*writers, a membership site of over 2,000 working writers.
    I first heard of Brian on another podcast, and right away I was fascinated by his story and the way he puts the customer first in business. This concept is not new, but it was to me the first time I heard it! I had spent YEARS trying to figure out who my customer was and what they would buy with my lifestyle blog, Cozy Traditional Home.com. The concept of “People First” was a revelation to me, and just what I needed to hear in my business. It doesn’t matter what kind of business you have, whether its sewing, crafting, blogging, creating whatever is is that you do will be forever changed by putting your customers FIRST.
