Hi, I’m Julie!
I’m the founder, CEO, and Creative Director of Impressa Solutions. But I’ve done automotive sales, tended bar, managed an apartment building, was a casino cocktail waitress, and even worked as a Hooters Girl–for more than six years!
And there was that stint where I lived overseas and found myself not only unemployed, but unemployable. That’s when I first started to become obsessed with the idea of portable careers and being a digital nomad.
Now when I’m not conceiving of killer content strategy for Impressa’s clients, I spend my time helping others to make self employment and greater independence a reality.
My ticket to entrepreneurship
When I finally started freelancing, I made a game plan. My initial goal was pocket change, but I had my sights set on being completely self employed. And that worked a little too well!
Within four months of getting started as a freelancer, I was at it full time–no other job needed! Six months after that, I was so busy it was either bring some help on board or start turning down clients. This is how Impressa Solutions was born!
There’s more to life than work
When people ask me what I do, I don’t talk about work. I am not my job.
I talk about an upcoming trip, a recent party we hosted, a current crafting project, or how hard I’m struggling to learn Polish. Through entrepreneurship, I have time and energy to do things important to me and embrace opportunities to have a full, rich, rewarding life.
