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!

When at Brunch…

“Work hard, brunch harder”

One of my favorite weekend pass times- Brunch. (Bottomless mimosas at brunch are also always welcome). My team decided to meet and celebrate some amazing promotions that happened last month, and to share ideas on how we can all grow our business.

I was sipping on my cappuccino and sharing all of the great things that happened in the past 30 days, and all of the amazing things that are coming, when it hit me. All of the women sitting at our table are all making a full time income from our phones. On top of that, 6 figures from our phones. Kind of crazy right?

We all started in the same spot. Unhappy, broke, trying our best to get by and finish college. And now, we all know that we’re in exactly the place we’re supposed to be! all of us are from different backgrounds. Emily, one of my best friends in this business was a criminology major. She’s now #21 in this company.

5 Tips on Being a Bold, Beautiful, Young Professional

So you want to be a successful young entrepreneur?

Me too.

We all go through that phase in college where we’re trying to find not only what we want to do, but also how we’re going to crush our careers and be the best that we can possibly be. When we’re then given a diploma, it can be scary standing in that doorway not knowing where we will be taking the next steps in our lives.

No one is an expert at their field when they first start a career path. I’m deciding daily what I want to do and what my next grand idea will be. I’m telling you that it’s OKAY to constantly change what you want. It’s even okay to mess up 100 times and then decide finally what you want to do. It is useless if you aren’t actively trying to figure out what you want to do. I don’t know about you, but I never want to find myself sitting in a cubicle wondering where the last 20 years of my life have gone.
