Hey, guys! In this episode, I am chatting with Alli Koch, the owner of Ali K Design from Dallas, TX. She designs in modern, minimal style full of neutral colors. Each design is a one-of-a-kind, made to order and created by hand.

Key Takeaways

“Confidence, work-life balance and networking are the key!”

  • When Alli grew up, there was a misconception around her about the ‘starving’ artist. Because of that, she went to school to get Marketing degree and surprise, she couldn’t find a job with such degree! Fortunately, she picked up art, posted stuff on Instagram and people liked it and it snowballed from there.
  • Alli’s mentor is her Dad who is a motivational speaker and she has had breakfast with him every Saturday since she was 13 years old!
  • Alli recommends to balance the work and life and make time for doing nothing. You should put your life on a calendar!
  • Alli took some time to discover her brand because first, she did work that was popular among the others but not for her. She transitioned to do what she likes, and she achieved bigger success!
