About Taughnee & Endeavor Creative
Hi, I’m Taughnee
(Sounds like “Tawny”). I’ve been a location-independent business owner for over 15 years and have learned a trick or two (mostly the hard way) about attracting clients online.
When I moved to Europe years ago, I struggled without my local network to rely on. I took on a lot of lousy work to pay the bills because I felt I had no other choice.
But then I realized something and the whole world opened up to me: I needed to put my business first if I ever wanted to live life on my own terms.
I began to focus on the work I’m meant to be doing for the people I love doing it for, then went way, way (way!) outside my comfort zone to get visible with them. Since then, I’m happy to report that things have never been better.
Whether your goal is location-independence or something else entirely, I believe even the tiniest businesses can achieve mighty things (freedom, fulfillment, financial reward) when you’re brave.
I’d love to help you build the vision-board version of your business. There’ll be plenty of hard work, but I promise it’ll be worth it.
Taughnee is such a pro in every way! She was able to take my ideas and put them together in a way that seemed like poetry to me.— Cristi Adamkosky
Working with Taughnee has been incredibly valuable, not just because of the fantastic, functional, and beautiful blog she’s created for and with me, but also because it’s been so darn FUN.— Alison Arians
Taughnee delivered on all counts. I absolutely love my site and am still amazed at how she nailed it!— Aliza Sherman
I’ve been searching for “my designer” for 16 years. She’s amazing. So very, very pleased.— Ellen Faye
I was living in Anchorage, Alaska when I decided to take my side hustle designing websites and turn it into a full-time gig. Not long after in 2004, I started my first blog, and started designing for other bloggers.
I attracted an incredible clientele from all over the world — from thought leaders to popular lifestyle bloggers. I realized I was on to something — my business could be “location independent.”
So I did what any reasonable person would do — I spent a few years living half time in Paris! Because I was able to take my work with me, I was able to enjoy freedom and personal fulfillment I never could have imagined possible in my early days working at a stressful big city ad agency.
Back home in Anchorage, decided I wanted to pursue a “digital nomad” lifestyle — you know, bouncing from Asia to Europe to Polynesia — not a bad plan, right?
But just as I was making other plans for my life, I met an amazing man. As you do. Just one little problem — he lived in Croatia. A few months later I visited his beautiful country, found out he was even more incredible in person, so I moved and I married him.
Our home is in the beautiful countryside — peaceful and beautiful and surrounded by warm and generous neighbors. It wasn’t the life I expected, but it’s the life I always needed. My wanderlust happily demolished by love and simplicity.
