Taking a Leap!

I’ve been waiting to reveal my news to you until my last day of work – I quit my job! I’ve been afraid, nervous and also very excited to share this with all of you because I don’t have my business page up yet, but instead of keeping it a secret I wanted to get it out there in the world. I’ll be working with design clients, styling photo shoots for publications and lookbooks, and helping small (and large) businesses grow their social media strategies.  I’m thrilled to focus on my own way now. I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart and it seemed like the perfect window of opportunity to dive into this new endeavor. I know this road will be bumpy but if I didn’t take the leap I’d never know what it would be like or what I can accomplish. So, I’m giving myself this opportunity and hopefully as this window closes many more will open up to me.

I can’t wait to see Sacramento Street grow and dive into fun, challenging and exciting projects in the near future! Definitely keep me in mind if you hear of any opportunities where you think I’d fit.

Cheers to all of you for being amazing supporters of Sacramento Street – without you I would have never been able to take this leap!

Have a lovely first weekend of December! I’m off to Dallas and Austin to visit the lovely Joslyn and Camille for a week, but I’ll be back here Monday with an exciting week of posts.

xx, Caitlin
