Creative Market and Logo Design

In the Logo Design module of the Bucketlist Bombshells' Design Skills Course, Cassie mentions Creative Market as a great place to buy unique fonts for logo design. I was already familiar with Creative Market, and for a good reason: They give away design elements every...

Introduction to Skillcrush

I've mentioned Skillcrush on this site a few times, and it's about time that I introduced you to this wonderful resource! Before I heard of Bucketlist Bombshells, or even much about this whole digital nomad idea, I came across Skillcrush, and it's where I have...

On Saying No to Clients

This week has not been a great one at my day job. (I was going to say 9-5, but I work 8-5.) And it has been almost entirely due to one customer making sudden paperwork demands that I have been required to meet. Is there any benefit to me in meeting this customer's...

On Quitting Your Job: Courage vs. Responsibility

I'm not quitting my job. Not walking out. Not putting in my two weeks' notice. Not saying, "Bye, Felicia." Not yet at least. As a part of so many travel and freelancing/solopreneur groups, it seems like every day I hear about someone is quitting their 9-to-5 to pursue...

Methods of Online Learning

To become a digital nomad, you need to be able to do money-generating things remotely. For some, they can use the skills they've already gained to jump right in. For others, they will need to learn new skills or brush up on some old ones. For everyone, the fast-moving...

FileMaker Development

I have my day job to thank for reviving my interest in making digital things. My company uses a program called FileMaker for most of its day-to-day record keeping. I had never heard of this program before starting there, and since they were in the process of switching...

Entrepreneurial Roots

I've never been much of a salesperson. I'm quiet, not pushy, and if someone declines politely I generally never ask them again. However, for most of my childhood I didn't have an allowance, and for a good portion of my adulthood I didn't have a full-time job, so when...

Language Learning

One consideration when traveling to a different country is that the people of that country may not speak the same language as you. As an English speaker, I am fortunate to know a language spoken in many parts of the world. But even if most of people you encounter on a...

BB Design Skills Course: Module 4

Module 4 of the Bucketlist Bombshells Design Skills course introduces students to logo design. This is the module I was most excited about while I was considering purchasing these courses, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! This module consists of 7 videos for well over an...

Do One

About a month ago, I received an article in my inbox that stuck with me. Paul Jarvis referenced the iconic John Hopkins teaching method of "See one, do one, teach one", and explained that most people are too quick to pass over the middle step - do one. He noted that...

Confidence and Courage

As part of their 7-day challenge, Bucketlist Bombshells founders Cassie and Shay recently shared a live video discussing confidence and courage (you can watch a replay within the private and free to join Facebook group, Bucketlist Bombshells Tribe). They described...

BB Design Skills Course: Module 3

I am enjoying BB's Design Skills Course more and more every module! This one is all about creative briefs and mood boards. If you've ever wondered how designers go from getting hired to figuring out what their clients really want in a design, this gives you an inside...

Digital Nomad Obstacles

It's really easy to get discouraged when you are pursuing a dream - especially when you don't have a clear picture of what that dream is and what steps you need to take to reach it. I have loved the idea of moving to Europe and/or becoming a digital nomad with...

BB Design Skills Course: Module 2

This module of the Bucketlist Bombshells' Design Skills Course introduces students to Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. I was very much looking forward to this module, and it did not disappoint! Like the previous module, this one consisted of three videos...
