I'm Mara Kucirek (you know the girl with a last name that is slightly impossible to pronounce).

I design websites for creative people. 

Hello There!

About Me:

About Me:

I started designing websites in college to help pay for tuition.

My story

I took the most boring corporate marketing job after college. 

I thought that was what you were supposed to do in life. Get the stable, safe corporate job, stay for 40 years, and that was your life or at least that's what everyone kept telling me, but as I sat at my desk from 8 to 5 everyday I couldn't shake this feeling that there was more out there for me. 

So I started an Etsy shop and got thrown into the amazing world of online business. 


My story

I started designing witty posters and selling them online, but soon I had other online business owners asking me to help them with marketing and building websites.

I thrived on working with creative entrepreneurs, but I kept hustling at the corporate job. I just couldn't shake this stupid thought that you had to always have the safe, stable day job. 

I felt like I wasn't good enough to go full-time in my business. I thought I would have to be in my late 30's to ever start my own business...oh past mara...you were so full of doubt!


My story

This is the part in the story where we are going to have to fast forward through a lot of self discovery and a lot of learning to challenge my old beliefs before I finally learned:

To just do what I love and ruthlessly chase down my dreams. 

Which meant finally taking the terrifying leap of leaving full-time employment and...

The world didn't end.  Despite my fears and uncertainty life has never been better and now I have a thriving, profitable business that challenges and supports me everyday. 

Your dreams are worth it. Don't ever forget that.
