Business Profile: Robyn Keulder

  1. What is the name of your business and what is your role? My business is Cherish Designs and I offer freelance graphic and web design services.
  2. Describe your business in two sentences. I am passionate about creating beautiful websites and designs that get results for my clients. I aim to offer affordable services to entrepreneurs and small business owners to get them online and allow them to put their best foot forward.
  3. How long have you been in business? Since 2015.
  4. How did you get into this business? After the birth of my third child, I realised that a 9 – 5 wasn’t going to work for me anymore. I sold the business I was running at the time and after doing a few graphic design courses and a lot of online learning, I found myself doing work for friends and family. As my skills grew so did my client base and I have now incorporated web design to my services as there is a huge need for simple beautiful pages without the big agency fees. 
  5. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced, and how did you overcome it? Doing my own marketing, I have to schedule in 1 morning a week to work on it.
  6. What single trait/skill could you not have succeeded without? I’m not sure it’s a skill, but I have patience when it comes to tech which a lot of people struggle with. I am persistent to the point of hard-headedness and will not be defeated. Like Marie Forleo says…”Everything is figureoutable”!
  7. What is the best business advice you’ve received? Create multiple income streams for yourself.
  8. Your secret to business success is? Putting a purpose behind my passion.
  9. What is your business goal for 2022? To finish developing my online course and have my first launch!
  10. Tell us one thing that not many people know about you? I have climbed Mt Kilimanjaro!
