Why Barefoot?

Brutalist Style Flower

People often ask me, "Why Barefoot?" I tell them, "It's in my nature!"

Life is full of unexpected journeys, and my own is no exception. Growing up in Kentucky, I was surrounded by a culture of simplicity and natural beauty. I was often barefoot during the summer, and I developed an appreciation for the nature that surrounded me as a young girl. Fast forward many years later, and a move to Southwest Florida found me quite often walking the beach, warm sand and gulf waters between my toes.

The decision to name my company "Barefoot" was rooted in the idea of a life of purpose and simplicity. It's a reflection of my own journey and personal growth. It’s also a reminder to stay open to new possibilities and always strive to be the best version of myself.

So, the Top 3 reasons, "Why Barefoot?"

First, going "barefoot" is symbolic of freedom and creativity, which are core values that I strive for in both my business and personal life.

Second, the notion of "barefoot” suggests being grounded, which reflects my dedication to helping my clients stay rooted in their vision and mission.

And third, "barefoot" is a metaphor for simplicity and minimalism, which reflects my commitment to providing my clients with straightforward and uncomplicated support.

By keeping things simple and natural, I am able to provide my clients with unique designs that show off their unique personalities. Whether it’s a website, a logo, or a Powerpoint presentation, I am likely to add a touch of southern charm and a unique perspective that can’t be found anywhere else. That's what Barefoot Consulting is all about: Simplicity, creativity, and problem-solving. I hope that my clients will get as much out of Barefoot as I do.

The Power of Storytelling Through Editorial Content

Brutalist Style Flower

Storytelling is a powerful tool when it comes to creating compelling and engaging content. Whether it be a blog post, video, podcast, or even an infographic, storytelling can be used to effectively communicate a message and capture the attention of the audience.

In the world of editorial content, storytelling is a great way to bring a story to life and help readers to better understand the topic at hand. Through the use of storytelling, readers can connect with the content on a more personal level, as the stories give them a glimpse into the lives of the people or events being discussed.

In addition to connecting with the audience, storytelling can also be used to help build trust between the reader and the content. By telling stories, readers can get a better sense of who the author is and what their values are. This allows readers to form a more meaningful relationship with the content, which can lead to a more loyal following.

Furthermore, storytelling can help to make complex topics easier to comprehend. By providing relatable stories and examples, authors can explain difficult concepts in a way that is easier to understand. This can be especially helpful when tackling topics such as economics or politics.

Storytelling should be utilized whenever possible in order to bring a story to life and create an unforgettable experience for the reader.
