I am extremely motivated but I am aware this is your idea had creation and I'm not looking to take over that.

"Yes zara this all sounds great" However I have some things I'm just not good at or qualified or experienced enough to do for you, and I would rather be upfront and honest about those things.

Things I can not do for you:

 

  • Copywriting - Im dyslexic, so I would not be the best person to write your blog posts.

  • Code writing and creation - although self taught I'm not at a level to do this service.

If this all sounds good for you I cant wait to hear from you and make your vision (with the added advise of an experienced designer) into a reality!
