Life at 24… Ready for More!

Birthdays seem to come faster and faster each year. Anyone else feel the same? How am I 24, just yesterday I was still in college, high school. 2009 was 10 years ago. Time flies when you’re having fun I guess!

Truly, I am never the girl who wants to make an entire month out of the day I was born. I just love to know people care about me- a card in the mail is one of my favorite things to get! And of course, spending the day with people I love.

This year, I have high expectations for myself. If you asked me if I thought I would be sitting in my home office today writing this blog as a full time entrepreneur, I probably would’ve said no. But life had other plans for me- in the best way possible!

So many of my friends who are in their mid twenties agree that it is such a crazy and transitional time of life. You start to reach your dreams that you wanted to get to as a kid, or you start to realize you need to go after those dreams. Some of your friends will leave your life, and new ones who have similar aspirations come into your life. You’re either single, or probably at getting ready to be engaged to your significant other.

I’ll leave my 24 year old self a note- for when I look back on this blog in 2020, 24 is going to be a good year for you, keep your head up and your goals set high!

Thank you to all the people who constantly make me a better version of myself and for all the birthday love!

You See My Highlight Reel

We see it everyday- the picture perfect Instagram. All of the photos have the same filter, they all match perfectly, thousands of likes and followers on every pic. A big thing that I think we all forget while looking at accounts like this- this is a highlight reel. Behind every great insta, there’s always a normal person.

I say this personally and know that so many of my co- workers, fellow entrepreneurs and bloggers feel the same way.

My Instagram is the place where I market my personal brand, my company’s brand, and all of my adventures. Of course it’s going to look great! What you usually don’t see on my insta, me on the couch talking to potential business partners- surrounded by papers, books, my laptop, oh and a few cats. Some days I’m running on keto coffee, 3 hours of sleep, and I’ve used up all of my dry shampoo (we all know the struggle).

I’m not complaining, don’t get me wrong! I love everyday of being an entrepreneur. Most days it is a lot of work, it’s a lot of hours into making my dream a reality. When you have a drive for something it’s easy to get the hunger to make it happen.

With every great adventure, picture, and story, know that there is hard work behind that. There are days that I never leave the office or my house. Even the days that I am ready for a pic, there’s always bloopers behind that perfect shot!
