Meet Teanna Ross of Kreative Eye Design in Pasadena

Today we’d like to introduce you to Teanna Ross.

Teanna, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve always wanted to work for myself but as a teenager, it just wasn’t something that I saw people doing and it wasn’t talked about, back then, it definitely wasn’t as popular as it is now. My initial goal was to go to school and get a “Good Job” although I already had a “Good Job” working for the County of Los Angeles… but I wanted more, I knew that there was more! So, after graduating high school, I enrolled in community college only to finish a year and a half to then enrolled in American InterContinental University: Los Angeles in their Visual Communication Program.

I had always loved design and color so it was really a natural progression and I excelled tremendously. It was at that school where I found my niche and how I could go into business for myself and really be successful at being my own boss. After graduation in 2008 with my Bachelor of Fine Art, I immediately enrolled in the Master Program at University of Phoenix. I figured if I wanted to be in business for myself what better way to get started than obtaining my MBA and I graduated in 2010. So, that leads me to where I am today an entrepreneur/business owner running my own design consulting agency, Kreative Eye Design. I’ve been in business for myself full-time since 2010. I’ve been loving every moment. I’ve learned so much, still learning daily and I enjoy taking the frustration out of branding and marketing and educating people on how to leverage them both to increase their brand awareness, visibility and ultimately their bottom line.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There have definitely been some bumps in the road but with anything, you must work hard and persevere, especially if you want to be successful. It definitely took some time for me to find my niche, for me to find my sweet spot and the type of clients and projects I enjoy working with and on. I’m still fine-tuning those things every quarter.

Finding your tribe and surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals and staying coachable will always be something you will have to be mindful of and consistently work on.

A takeaway from some of the challenges I’ve faced is knowing and understanding that everyone in your circle isn’t for you and you have to be careful with whom you share your dreams with, everyone doesn’t need to know, everyone isn’t worthy.

I’m the mystical branding magician behind Kreative Eye Design. I work with entrepreneurs and business owners who are at their wit’s end when it comes to branding and marketing their business.

I understand that…

Entrepreneurship isn’t a walk in the park. Additionally, I know how much your brand’s success depends on effective branding and marketing.

I help entrepreneurs who want to transform their brand in three ways:

– Craft the way you want to be perceived.
– Help you solidify your expert status in your niche.
– Help you build trust with your audience.

Here’s the truth:

1. Image is everything.
Digital entrepreneurs have the distinct advantage of connecting with clients mainly through the web and social media. However, that can also be detrimental to your brand if you don’t know how to leverage it well.

Everything is easily accessible on the web. If you don’t have a cohesive web presence, your credibility as a digital entrepreneur goes through the window – and any potential clients go with it.

2. People only take advice from experts.
Think about this – if you’re lost in a strange city, who would you ask for directions to where you’re going; A man dressed in dingy clothes or a businessman in a sharp suit?

You’d pick the guy in the sharp suit because you’d expect him to know what he’s talking about right off the bat. Similarly with your brand, if you aren’t embodying your expertise, nobody will want to listen to what you’re saying.

3. People don’t spend money with strangers.
Again, think of yourself in this situation. Imagine two people recommend a product to you. One is a random woman that comes up to you on the street, the other is your best friend. Who would you buy from?

Your best friend, duh. The same is true when it comes to your brand. If you don’t build any credibility and genuine connections with your audience, you’ll find yourself stuck, not knowing what to do next.

Put those three together, and you’ve got the formula for taking your business’ online presence to new heights. It’s the Kreative Eye Design way!

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory from my childhood, I will always hold near and dear is waking up on Saturdays watching Saved by the Bell, Wrestle Mania, of course, Soul Train and then hitting the park or the mall with my Grandfather. My Grandfather is my hero, he means so much to me and we shared a lot of memories together. I’ll never forget he was the one who introduced me to Tupac – he let me borrow his Tupac CD. Ain’t no man alive can come take my papa’s place!
