Ways I help

Branding and design offerings

 

You have a story to tell. Maybe you have many stories to share and you are not sure how to blend it all together well and present it in a way that makes sense and feel more like you and less like anyone else’s. Your story matters. It is worthy. It deserves to be shared. Together we’ll find a way to capture the essence of you, your story and your message in the visual + verbal aspects of your brand so that story speaks for itself and you keep on doing the work that you were meant to do, the work that brings you joy and not only calms but enriches your inner world.

I’m here to help you tell your story in a way that feels more like you and less like anyone else’s.

Mentoring and coaching services

 

Some times we need to do the inner work to get to the heart of the story we want to tell. It takes a little bit of time, effort, and courage to walk that path of uncertainty and find our way out of that messy middle. I want you to know, all the answers you are seeking outside of you, are already inside of you. Other times when we muster enough courage to show up and share our work, we run into limiting self-beliefs and stories that stand in our way. Here I offer gentle-hand holding and accountability as you begin your journey of finding what does and doesn’t work for you.

I’m here to help you uncover your own version of your creative business, work and life.

Who I help?

The ‘wild-hearted’, creative mavens who cannot not create, who don’t like to fit in a box, who have multiple passions to follow, who want to live slowly and sustainably and who want to make this world a better place. The courageous ones who want to forge their own path. The brave enough ones who have not only started to question the norms and should do’s but are also taking tangible steps to live their life on their own terms. I refer to it as embracing you wild and by ‘wild’, I mean all those tiny little quirks and big ambitions that make you who you are. Embracing our wild also means living in accordance with our values with authenticity and integrity. It means you are aching to live your truth out loud in a way that feels more like you and less like anyone else’s.

You can most certainly do it alone but you don’t have to

 

My Values

Connection
Sharing our hopes, stories, and ideas and learning from each other’s stories and experiences. Connection to me is also about making others feel safe, seen and heard and less alone in their journey.

Intuition
Interacting with the world from a place of intuition and the kind of self-belief that everything we need, all the answers are already within us.

Integrity
Showing up in the world from a place of integrity, sharing our truth with honesty and holding high standards when it comes to transparency and authenticity.

Courage and Vulnerability
Cultivating and practising courage even when it is hard, especially when it is hard. Risking failure and showing up despite feeling afraid and embracing vulnerability.

Creativity
Creativity is how we add value to the world by creating the art we want to see in the world. Falling in love with the process and sharing our creations our work with the world in our own unique, messy and human way.

Storytelling
Stories are how we connect. Every story is important whether it is mine or anyone else’s and stories are the means to connect and add value to the life of others as well as ours.

Freedom
Everyone has a right to make their own mistakes, have opinions and choose to do things differently. I believe in freeing ourselves from the expectations and the shoulds in our lives.

Truth
Speaking the truth to others but much more to ourselves. Your version of the truth is as much worth as any other version. It is important to speak it and live it out loud.

How I help?

I am a storyteller at heart. Visual and verbal storytelling is what makes my heart beats a little faster and design is something I am wildly passionate about mainly because it enables you to tell the story. My branding, design and illustration offerings are for the curious and compassionate creative business owners who are craving more slow and meaning in their lives and from their creative work.

Empathy and intuition are one of my core strengths and I draw upon my years of personal experience and those intuitive gut feelings as I mentor and hold space for creative souls who are aching to uncover and tell their story. If you are looking for some gentle-handholding as you uncover your own answers, my one on one and group mentoring offerings might just be what you are looking for.

The shop

For those who are looking for some encouragement and calm in their day to day lives, I have a shop where I offer a collection of affirmation cards to keep you company as you take courageous steps to bring your ideas to life and some art to bring you calm and quiet in your home and workspace.

What are the wild-hearted one’s saying

 

Hira is one of the most exceptional investments I have ever made in my creative journey so far.

We are the harshest critics of our creative efforts, and it is heaven to have Hira help you to take a step back, breathe and break things down into smaller, more achievable steps. I would also add that Hira is about so much more than this. Thanks to Hira’s guidance and her own understanding of the creative process, I am learning this can be achieved if we do the work, come from an authentic place, develop our own voice and start the process. Oh and keep showing up! Hira is not there to do the work for you, or wave a magic wand. But she is there in your corner, cheering you on, sharing beautiful strategies and gently suggesting other options rather than spelling them out.
