    Influence Conference Recap

    This was my second year attending the Influence Conference and I was so excited to go and to learn what my influence can be in various aspects of my life (but focusing on my online influence). I was not disappointed this year – there were sessions, classes & workshops focused around using our online presence for good. There were many classes in which I cried, there were three amazing worship times where we cried out to God, there was a members-only session by Lara Casey that broke down walls and so many other good things. While my head is swimming and my heart is full of good things that now…

    friday finds {conferences}

    Last week I learned of a new conference and decided I wanted to share it with all of my small business peeps and also to remind you of a few conferences that I’ve been to and LOVED. If you’re looking for a conference to go to, here are my suggestions! SNAP! Conference – What can I say about SNAP besides it’s FUN! Fun and happy and full of valuable information for the creative blogger. I’ve attended twice and had a blast both times. This conference is based in Utah (so beautiful) and is full of 350+ creative people all in one place. This year they plan to have over 500…

    influence recap

    I have a notebook full of notes that I could share with y’all, but for now I’m just going to share some of my favorite quotes and other things from the Influence Conference. The two days were FULL and the sessions so life-giving. The hard task now is to take time and process, as well as making life changes and goals for the future. Here are some of my favorite take-aways from the weekend. the goal is not happiness, it’s His glory. (lara casey) stop glorifying busy.

    debt-free business

    This weekend I spoke with Diana & Katie about starting and running a handmade business. In my nervousness I rushed through my part and realized later that I left out some notes that I wanted to hit so I figured what better place to recap than here on the blog! That way all of you who couldn’t go to the conference can hopefully benefit from it as well! The ladies on the panel all chose things that they were passionate about to speak on. My passion that I want to teach people is that you don’t have to start a handmade business with debt or necessarily run a business with…

    excited to announce…

    I don’t know if any of you were wondering why I got head shots done…I mean, I didn’t get them done just to have pictures of myself (ha!). I had them done because I’m doing something that I’ve NEVER done before, even though I’ve been in business almost 10 years (sometimes it takes a girl a while). I’m so excited to announce that I’m going to do this…. I can hardly even believe it as I type this. My journey as a business owner has been a long and slow one (especially in the first 4 or so years). I’m nervous and my face is turning red at the thought…
