Amy Balliett is the founder of Killer Visual Strategies. They’re a design studio in Seattle, Washington helping clients efficiently and effectively create meaning through design.
Amy got a head start with entrepreneurship by owning her own ice cream parlor at age 17. Since then, she’s gone on to work as a video editor, film trailer marketer and—after several pivots later—founder, author and public speaker.
She and Chris discuss how to know when it’s time for you to make that big pivot with your business and the risk of not doing anything. They also get into the impact of COVID-19 on the creative service industry and what they are both doing to prepare for the future.
