My name is Barbi Larkins. It took me 42 years to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I went to university to study design. But after I graduated, I suffered from Imposter Syndrome. I didn’t think I could make it doing what I loved. So I did what was easy. I had a job offer. I took it. And I spent the next 20 years in business management.
WHICH I HATED.
When the kids were nearly grown, I thought it might be time to discover what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. And to my surprise, I found that already knew. I went back to design. And I loved it. And it turns out I am actually REALLY GOOD at it.
For awhile, I grieved over all the years I lost doing something that wasn’t for me. Then I realized something important.
I HAD TO GO WHERE I WENT TO GET TO WHERE I AM.
Those years weren’t wasted it all. What they did was give me perspective.
When I design your website, I know what things look like from your side. Because I’ve been on your side. I know what businesses need. That kind of knowledge only comes from hard-earned experience.
I love what I do. I bring my love for design, my technical expertise and my insider business knowledge to put together websites that are beautifully usable and effective.
