You're not alone

Gimme your hands 'cause you're wonderful!

If your a Bowie fan like me, you probably just heard the lyrics to Rock n Roll Suicide in your head after reading that last subject line. Yes! I like you already. 

Oh no love, you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone - David Bowie

You now have a partner that cares about the success of your business, and what you get out of life, as much as you do. 

As a dreamer, doer, risk taker, entrepreneur, and small business owner myself, I can identify with you on both the highs, and lows, that are involved with going after your dream, including the feeling of being on an island alone. For me, there were times that although I knew I had it in me to succeed on my own, I often wished for a partner. I didn't have anyone in mind that I could officially partner with; I wasn't sure I wanted to hand over 50% of my business, and without a history with someone it seemed risky to do a joint endeavor. However, I often had days that I could have really used a partner to help me see a new perspective, offer complimentary skill sets, brainstorm ideas, keep me accountable, and some days simply sit down and help me accomplish a challenging task.

Who do I partner with?

I partner with clients who are open, positive, and proactive. Individuals who genuinely want a partner to help them grow and be successful in all areas of their business and life. 

  • My clients own unique businesses that are a reflection of themselves.
  • My clients are go-getters that are ready to make their dreams come true.
  • My clients have great ideas they want to dedicate themselves to making a reality.
  • My clients are running successful companies and want a creative partner to help them write copy for their latest newsletter or ad. 
  • My clients are facing fears surrounding owning their business and need support and tools to grow.
  • My clients want to brainstorm a new marketing idea and implementation. 
  • My clients are speakers that need a partner to help them organize and write their speech and design a presentation.
  • My clients are working to delegate tasks to their team and need support in learning to prioritize their time. 
  • My clients have numerous projects going at once and need a partner to help them stay organized and assist with keeping them accountable and on task.  

 A coach is often on the sidelines encouraging you, but a partner steps in and helps you win the game. I have your back and will support you and help you to reach your personal and business goals through encouragement, accountability, action plans, and honest auditing. 

I have over 15 years of experience in the creative industry and I put my knowledge to work for you! My support in helping you to obtain your goals is coupled with hands on implementation. I'm not here to simply outline a plan with you and send you on your way. I'm your partner, and when needed will walk you through completing the task. I'm all for action plans and outlining goals, but if you don't get your hands dirty and get to work, it's all talk. 

A coach is often on the sidelines encouraging you, but a partner steps in and helps you win the game.

Let's create something awesome and stay true to
ourselves while we do it.


In my 15 years as a creative, I consistently pushed myself to learn new skills and challenged myself in new roles. Project manager, account manager, graphic designer, photographer, art director, and creative recruiter are just a few titles I've held. I've worked with small businesses and global corporations and through it all I've made my number one priority the people I had the good fortune to work with. 

What to expect.

As your creative partner I will start by learning about you. I love to listen and get to the core of who you are and what drives you to do what you do. I'm joining the team, so it's important you school me on all aspects of your business and what makes you, you. Once I know where you are now, we can talk about where you want to be, then we can start outlining a plan to make that happen. I'm all about action, so once we have an idea of goals and identify priorities, we can get started. You will be making things happen and I will be there to hold you accountable with check-ins and homework. If you need my assistance with specific projects, we can identify those, and I will set off to accomplish my list as well. Have you ever wanted to be in two places at once or dreamed of having someone checking off your to-do list while you're busy with something else? Yeah, it's a little like that.  

So what sorts of skills do I have to offer you? 

Coaching & Partnership
Project Management
Graphic Design & Marketing – Branding, Email Campaigns, Social Media Collateral, etc.
Content Development – Copywriting, Social Media Posts, Blog Posts, Tag Lines
Event Planning
Video – Promotional & Inspirational
Photography – Product, Portrait, Conceptual, Stock for Marketing
HR Consulting - Training, Hiring, Interview Process, Employee Retention
Vendor Management and Sourcing

You're a creative too.

Yeah you are! You wouldn't be fearless enough to go out on your own and have the talent to build your new venture if you weren't. We can join forces, play off each others skill set, and together help you tap into your ultimate potential. I believe the most powerful and awake people build each other up, defend each other, and think the other deserves the world. There is more than enough to go around, and when you surround yourself with positive people that have a similar mindset, you'll see that's where the magic happens. 


A personalized one-on-one coaching/brainstorming session is $90. My sessions are 1 hour and 15 minutes, and include a detailed follow up plan reviewing what we discussed in our meeting, an outline of your goals, and a plan of action. My clients typically decided to meet once weekly, however, I'm happy to come up with a custom plan that works for your needs and schedule. I offer a 4 session package for $320 (saving you a total of $40/$10 discount per session).


It's time to take action. 

No matter where you live, we can work together! My one-on-one sessions are held via video conferencing. It's an amazingly efficient way to connect and make the most of our time together. Let's do this! 

Book your free consultation!

I'm looking forward to learning about you!


It has been my honor and good fortune to work with and learn from some of the best in the business. They were good enough to write me a few recommendations. 

Denise is without a doubt, one of the best humans I know. She genuinely cares about everyone she encounters and has a way of bringing a positive energy to any situation. She brings a calm confidence and voice of reason to what for some, may be a stressful or challenging situation.

I had the pleasure of being her work partner for almost 2 years with Mathys+Potestio. Denise helped me grow immensely as a recruiter and account manager and gain confidence in myself and my abilities. She is an outstanding talent evaluator who has a knack for identifying the right fit for candidates and genuinely has their best interests at heart.

In addition to excelling as a talent evaluator, she is a creative herself. Her experience as a photographer, designer, etc. brings a credibility to the room when reviewing and advising job seekers.

I know Denise will be successful at whatever she puts her heart and mind into. If you have an opportunity to work with Denise in any capacity, you will be forever grateful that you had the chance to do so.
— Dave Couzens, Nike Account Manager and Recruiter, Mathys+Potestio
Denise is an exceptionally adept creative person, skilled in visual presentation for print, online, displays, and more. She provides award-worthy visual solutions, and those solutions meet the business goals set out for them. Above all, she is great to work with: good feedback, positive questions and answers, and always a positive attitude. I would work with her again gladly and recommend her without reservation.
— Rob Neilley, Editor
What would I do without Denise!

I met Denise shortly after moving to Austin. She is incredibly warm and friendly, and at our first meeting I could tell she genuinely cared about helping me find a great job, the right job. Not only did Denise instill confidence in me and my abilities at a time when endless job applications were wearing on me, she also gave me the peace of mind that the person who was going to bat for me was someone who truly believed in me.

Throughout the time I was contracting through Mathys+Potestio, Denise was regularly in touch with me and my supervisor, making sure we were both happy with how things were going. Although my supervisor and I were both excited to have my contract position transition to full time, we confided in missing the check-ins from Denise.

Thankfully, I still have the pleasure of knowing Denise as a mentor and a friend. I would recommend anyone looking to find a job or to fill a job opening to contact her.

Denise was transformational for my business. She moved us forward....a lot. If you are reading this you may be looking to hire Denise in some capacity. You will find Denise to be smart, dedicated, hard working and she has a good heart. She can account manage, project manage, design, code, photograph....and she will do it all well. You will be happy and impressed. Trust me.
— Steve Potestio, Partner and CEO at Mathys+Potestio
Denise Faddis is a woman of amazing creativity and passion. She is not afraid to step out of her comfort zone and create something that always seems to help others. I have always been amazed at what she will dream up next to do in her life. I admire and respect her and would love to work with her on any project. Working with Denise has always been a joy. I can’t wait to see what she will create next!
— Kathy Bacon, Radio Host
Denise was an awesome project manager for Spot, keeping both the internal team and clients on track. For multiple projects at a time, she organized all the details, kept the Spot team motivated, inspired clients to stay excited about their projects, and ensured everything stayed within budget and on schedule. I’d love to work with her again in the future!
Since meeting Denise at a nonprofit design hacking event over a year ago, she has come to be an amazing mentor, inspiration, and friend. She has helped me in so many ways through connecting me to creatives in the industry, giving me great advice, and taking the time to listen and truly care about my career path. Her creativity energy and pursuit of creative outlets has consistently been an inspiration to me and I am amazed at all of the things that she accomplishes.
Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Denise will be lucky to do so. She will continue to inspire you and root for you no matter what you do.
