Tech with Ty | Podcast Interview

  • A Conversation about the Beginning of My Journey

Hey friends! I wanted to blog this, because I feel like if I just share it on Instagram, I will lose the link to this a year from now, and I love it so much that I want it to be in my archives! My good friend Tyler Herrinton has launched something that I think has been stirring in him for a long time. He LOVES talking about Tech and helping others understand the tools of this industry. However, he also loves sharing about business, and so this new project is perfect for him!!! I’m excited, because I was asked to be the VERY first guest on the “Tech with Ty” PODCAST!

Everly’s Eleventh Month

This month seems a little sentimental because it’s the last month before she turns ONE!!!! It’s hard to organize these posts because Evy was born on the 18th, and so she turns a month older halfway through every month! She was entering her 11th month right before Christmas!! So this post may seem out of order but technically, it’s accurate! All of these images are from December 18th to January 18th! It’s crazy that next month will mark a full year of doing these posts for her! I’m not sure what the future will be with baby pics because once July is here, we’ll be starting over!

The Unhealthy Version of Hustle

  • Ask Anything

I think it’s safe to say that I’m in a new season of work/life balance. Life looks a lot different these days. However, I can’t hide the fact that I hustled HARD in my 20’s…. really for all of my 20’s! I had the advantage of starting REALLY young and building my business before kids and before bigger responsibilities entered my life. I’m grateful for that…. but before some of you who are trying to build businesses WITH kids get frustrated… let me explain that my hustle didn’t happen without a cost.
