Crazy Good Ideas by Glynis

A message from the owner Glynis Tao

Hey Friends,

I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard from me. Maybe you’re thinking “where has she been all this time?” Well I’m here to let you know I’m OK! I’ve not forgotten about you!

I wanted to update you as to what’s been happening in my life. I’m now a mama to a wonderfully energetic, smart and funny little boy. My son Chase was born in 2016. I winded down my company Punch Brand at the end of 2016 to be a stay at home mom and taking care of my son.
Making the decision to wind down my business was hard. Punch Brand was my first baby and I ran it for 10 amazing years. The online shop is still open, many products are on sale so you may want to check it out especially if you have little ones.

But all is not lost, I’ve gained tons of experience as a creative business owner and here’s the part of the email that gets exciting. After a lot of soul-searching, I have transitioned to being a business coach and started a consulting agency called Chase Your Dreams. I teach people how to build a sustainable and profitable creative business. 

What is business coaching? It is a process used to take a business from where it is now to where the business owner wants it to be. A business coach will assist and guide the business owner in growing their business by helping them clarify the vision of their business and how it fits in with their personal goals.
I developed and built Punch Brand from startup to generate 6-figure sales in the 2nd year of business. I started in artist alley and did most of my sales from anime and comic conventions. You probably have seen me smiling and waving behind my booth if you’ve been to any of the major conventions in Canada and the US.
If you’re a creative entrepreneur aspiring to start or grow your own business I can totally relate to the challenges you are going through. I was exactly where you are when I started my business over 10 years ago. 
I’ve experienced my share of challenges through the years. As a small business owner sometimes it feels like you’re trouble shooting more than creating. Right? Who’s with me here? One of the biggest challenges that aspiring entrepreneurs face is the fear that holds them back from even getting started. 
If you are thinking of starting a business, I am here to be your guide. I created a free tipsheet to help you get started and conquer your fears. Head over to my NEW website to grab the tipsheet: https://glynistao.com/5-ways-to-shift-your-mindset/. I believe the secret to lasting success is having the right mindset.
Wherever life takes you, just know that you are an amazing person with the potential to do great things. You just have to believe in yourself. 
With gratitude,
