Mark Cornellison of Paradox Visual is a digital retoucher with a heart of gold, an amazing talent and a collaborative point of view. The artistry of his “invisible” style of retouching goes beyond correcting imperfections: he uses his digital tools to imbue images with depth, impact and stunning detail.
Mark knows his art but needed to become entrepreneurial fast. He needed an intelligent push in the right direction to build his business from the ground up — a logo, a website, a brand. He needed a Foundation, a custom One Year Plan and the action to make it go, the Plan in Motion.
What made all the difference was Mark's complete willingness to do what it takes to build a business to house his retouching art. Together, we were able to guide Mark’s talent into a business that works for him. He stopped waiting for jobs to come and started collecting work almost immediately. Now his experience, talent and creativity can really shine! He listened, learned, researched, practiced, gave no excuses and built Paradox Visual into a first-class entrepreneurial business.
In His Own Words
"A solid shove in the right direction and starting the process from the ground up — that was what I desperately needed to birth Paradox Visual.
Coming highly recommended by a mutual friend, I had some idea of how powerful of an experience it could be working with Janie. During our first conversation, I was struck by how many questions she was asking about my life outside of work. She understands that all facets of your life affect your career choices and she knows how to guide you to making your business work for you.
With the Real Results Program, you create more than just a marketing plan. You create a life plan!
There was a lot to do, but by breaking it down Janie helped me accomplish everything, and more. I got my website up and running so clients could find me. I built a brand and a business from the ground up and started working. I learned what I wanted from my business. I found photographers that matched my style. Most importantly, I took charge of my career goals.
Working with Marketing Creatives helped me to be more confident in the "business" side of my company, so I can focus on the artistry of retouching and producing professional imagery for my clients. Janie helped me take a look at myself and to determine my strengths and weaknesses, not just in business, but in life — a sobering experience! I’ve been shaped into the best version of myself as a businessperson, so my experience, talent and creativity can speak for itself."
