I'm Tianna... Your Creative Wix Guru.
A little sliver of my life (business) story...
I help businesses successfully build their brands, and really, I help the people behind those brands bring their vision to life and give their brand a proper footing to grow. Utilizing my talents in social media, marketing, and design, I create and implement brand strategies for large companies and local small businesses in a variety of industries.
Now, in terms of my life story, there was, of course, my birth, which by all accounts was a huge success for me. That said, let’s fast forward past my formative years and go straight to my college education. I earned a degree in Merchandise Marketing from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, and went on to graduate from the Art Institute in San Diego with a B.S. degree in Advertising. The business and beauty of marketing and advertising always drew me in, and it was there, I learned the thread through it all was always people-focused creativity. To create a incredibly compelling brand story, you have to remember who you are working with but also who they are working for. Do that and you will always hit your mark. This has remained at the core of what I do.
After graduating in 2013 at the age of 27, I decided to establish my own business called Tianna Marie, LLC. For years, I freelanced my services, worked for local marketing and creative agencies and even became a Segway tour guide in Downtown San Diego… because sometimes you need to glide effortlessly while speaking about the city you love. I eventually made my way to a creative agency in San Diego in 2015.
In 2016, I got married and just one year later, I had twin boys. No big deal, right? Sadly, however, the first day I came back from my maternity leave at that agency, I was told that the company had dissolved and that myself and our team of four no longer had jobs. Yes, it was a bit of a blow, especially with all of those hormones raging! Nevertheless, I immediately went to LinkedIn to start applying for jobs and even landed one within a couple weeks. After much thought, I realized that it didn’t make sense for me to work for a paycheck that I would simply hand over to a nanny to take care of my babies. It made sense for ME to take care of my babies and try to work from home.
Because I have had so much experience in agencies and freelancing, I had all the tools needed to become successful working from home and that is exactly what I did. Becoming a Wix partner was the best thing I have done for our family. Fast-forward to 2020 where we have added another baby boy to the family and it's even more important to be home while our kids are navigating through a pandemic and learning from home. Being able to be flexible with my schedule and still make a gradual income is so vital during these crazy times. I couldn't be more thankful for my career and I am so passionate to share my experience and tools of success with YOU.
