27. Who has been your biggest influence?
My sisters. Each of us influences the others in a unique way. It’s so nice having a trio of support and motivation!
28. What are your best words of advice for aspiring lady bosses chasing the dream?
Do what you love and remember to be patient. With blogging, I’ve seen so many girls get frustrated and quit if they don’t see quick results. As long as you’re passionate about what you’re doing and truly believe in your brand, you will find success!
29. Tips for balancing it all?
Create a schedule and stick to it. Dedicate certain days to certain projects. Even though I work from home and make my own hours, I follow a strict schedule. Like I always say, working from home is not the same thing as taking a day off 😉
30. What most excites you about life lately?
Travel! I visited 11 countries last year, and this year I hope to keep exploring. There’s nothing more exhilarating than exploring new destinations and meeting new people along the way!
