We had the good fortune of connecting with Kaylyn Noonan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kaylyn, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I have always loved many different sides of being a creative – photography, brand design, social media, video, etc. I have always worked for companies that required my full-time attention, so it has always been in the back of my mind that if I were to start a company, I can wear many hats and help brands in many different avenues. I loved working at different companies to learn new ways of doing things, but felt that it was my turn to take the leap into my own creative consulting business. I love that it allows me to help clients in many different ways, instead of only one specific thing. My goal is to help companies elevate their brand creatively – whether it be their content, branding, social media guidance… anything! I want to always cater to solving creative problems and ultimately leaving each brand with more confidence.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I specialize in photography, graphic design, brand direction and content creation. I love helping companies creatively, however they may need help. I think what sets me apart is that I love being completely involved with each client while learning about everything they do so I can fully understand what they need or what is missing for them. I believe I got where I am today from a lot of hard work, especially working for a startup. Even though working for a startup was a huge time commitment mentally and physically, I loved it because it taught me so many things since everyone was wearing multiple hats and everyone was learning new things along the way. I had a lot more creative freedom than a regular corporate job, which allowed myself to learn a ton and grow. I think life and building a business is all about the experiences you have!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am such a foodie, so I would immediately make some reservations! I’m located in Orange County, so I think in the morning we would do a hike to start the day with some beautiful views, maybe Laguna! After that, we would go get some food at a super cute brunch spot, and walk around Lido for some shopping. If it’s nice out, you can never go wrong with the beach! Then eventually go somewhere for dinner, then a fun placefor some drinks. 🙂

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are so many people that I want to shout out for helping and guiding me to be the person I am today, but one that sticks out is my dad. My dad has worked so hard his whole life, eventually becoming a business owner himself. I have always admired his hard work and dedication. I have grown up watching him constantly strive to be better and work hard to own his own company – all while doing so with such a humble approach. It has always been extremely inspiring and I knew I wanted to own my own business too someday.
