Hello, my name is Janice Banks. And I am many things.
I am a mom, a graphic designer, a Shopify store designer (newfound passion) and an owner of two businesses.
Above all, I am a beloved child of God.
First and foremost, being a MOTHER is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I LOVE being a mom to my 4 gorgeous kids. At the same time, I just LOVE what I do. So I told myself “why not do both?”. I can create my own dream. My own life.
In the past 10 years, I had a job, I freelanced, ran a few businesses, multi-tasked my way through taking care of my family, running a household, changing multiple diapers while keeping my business afloat.
I loved it. But it was hard work.
It came to a point where my physical product business was taking over my life. Having the shiny object syndrome did not help either because it has led me to venture into other niches that have overwhelmed and caused me to have a lot of anxiety.
I finally decided that enough is enough.
My family commitments were growing. I was pregnant with my 4th kid and I have other 3 kids who were 5 and under. I just couldn't go on.
How Did I Get Here?
The revelation came to me at the toughest point of my life. As much as I wanted to venture into many things, I knew I had to focus and master ONE thing first. And that’s what I decided to do.
I knew that if all else fails, there’s one thing I could never, ever, abandon.
And that is designing.
Designing comes easily and naturally for me. It's what I'm best at. I’m a creative person by nature you see, and I always needed an outlet to explore this side of me.
So I decided to give my passion another go and it's the best decision I've ever made.
I now dive into graphic design fully. I create and sell printables. I offer my design services and work with small and creative business owners locally and internationally.
And now I have the pleasure of helping other creative business owners create beautiful digital products through my commercial templates. My mission now is to help as many creative entrepreneurs as possible to build their digital business quickly and easily.
During this process, I would also like to encourage creative stay at home moms to start an online business from home so they could start creating a passive income for themselves and their families, just like I have.
To my surprise, my online business has been growing from strength to strength each year. I don't know where I’d be right now if I didn’t make that first move those few years ago. I now receive funds from the sales I’ve made into my bank account almost every other day. It's a dream come true and I’m so grateful for this business for supporting my growing family.
And I want to encourage you that you can too.
You don’t have to know everything. You just need to start.
I started by creating a simple planner to sell in my store. Just one. People wanted more so I started creating more. Eventually, I found out that they were buying my printables because they wanted to edit them so they too can sell printables in their own stores.
For the longest time I procrastinated. Requests were screaming in my face and I tried to shrug it off but I know I could not put it off any longer. When the opportunity came, I decided to heed that call and go ALL in!
That is where I started creating templates. I started with 7 templates in 2019. Today, on my birthday (April, 2020) - I have now over 210 templates sitting in this my store which I have just launched.
Some Facts About Me:
- A mom of four kids.
