We love seeing how our members use our styled stock photos and learning more about their businesses! So each month we’re featuring one of our Styled Stock Society members – giving you a little peek at who they are, what they do, and how they are elevating their visual content with the help of their Styled Stock Society membership.
This month we’re excited to feature Kathie Wiehanne from Bluchic.
Tell us a little about your business + what you do!
At Bluchic, we create WordPress themes and sales funnel templates to help female entrepreneurs build a beautiful and professional online presence, so they can grow the profitable business they’ve always dreamed of. We’ve served over 30,000 customers since 2012.
What motivated you to start your business?
We (my husband and I) decided to move from custom web design to creating WordPress templates in 2012 because we wanted to make beautiful & professional design accessible for all female entrepreneurs at every stage of business (new entrepreneurs don’t have endless hours or a bottomless budget to spend on designing their website). And with that, Bluchic was born.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a business owner?
I never realized how much my overthinking and overanalyzing has made me think I’m busy all the time and that I “don’t have enough time” when in reality that’s not the case. I have plenty of time. I waste time by overthinking and overanalyzing which makes it difficult to complete tasks and get things done early (or even on time).
Deep down, I don’t want to make the wrong decision because I don’t want to fail. But the fact is, we all have failures and successes. Often time our failures are what activate our successes.
I’m personally trying to cut back on the information that I consume, not multi-task, and make faster decisions (even if they still seem scary!).
What are you excited about in your business right now?
We're excited to grow our WordPress themes collection with matching sales funnels templates, podcast page templates, and social media templates to go with it. We also added a fun quiz to help you find your perfect match — which WordPress Theme is the best choice for you and your business 👉 https://www.bluchic.com/quiz/
How has being a Styled Stock Society member made your life easier and/or benefitted your business?
The ever-growing stock library of SSS is very helpful as we always need beautiful stock photos for our content and launches. From entrepreneurs' kind of photos to desktop mockup photos and seasonal photos, SSS has them all so it really saves our time in curating gorgeous photos for our business. And, all the photos are high-quality, which elevates our brand.
What are your favorite Styled Stock Society collections?
If you were to recommend Styled Stock Society to a friend, what you would tell them about the membership?
If you need gorgeous high-quality stock photos for your businesses, we highly recommend Styled Stock Society! SSS doesn't just have a wide range of photos collection but also diversity in models. We upgraded from an annual plan to a lifetime plan, and it was the best investment ever.
