Helping creative entrepreneurs build a life they love.

Helping creative entrepreneurs build a life they love.

Hey, I’m Joel! An agency owner and business coach. I believe that creatives shouldn’t have to give up their lifestyle to build a profitable business.

About me

At 15 years old, I knew what I wanted to do with my life. No 4 year degree. No affluent lifestyle. No impressive career.

I would make a decent living as a Graphic Designer. Except I was terrible at the “make a decent living” part. (More on that 👇🏻)

Design never felt like art or creativity to me. I was putting things in order. A visually pleasing organization of ideas. I would uncover people’s ideas, organize them, and share them with the world.

I created beauty and structure out of chaos.

But my life and business was a mess. For years, I stumbled through my own chaos:

A failed career.
A divorce.
A bankruptcy.
One low-paying project after another.

I had to do something different. That’s when things started to change.

– I partnered with my friend Tommy.
– We put together a team of skilled creatives.
– We founded Notion Design in 2008.
– We started making money doing what we loved.
– 15 years later, we still do.

Together, we’ve worked on thousands of projects that have inspired people, communicated ideas, sold products, and motivated donors.

Most importantly, I’ve built a life I love (on most days). I have autonomy, flexibility, and time to spend with my family.

Here’s how I can help…

💼 For Businesses:
At Notion, we transform run-of-the-mill businesses into stand-out brands. Brands that sizzle and websites that pop.
