Instagram Editing

  • Ask Anything

I LOVE INSTAGRAM! I honestly don’t think that it’s going to be the social media channel of choice for forever… but for right now, it’s my favorite! It caters to my business more than any other social media platform simply because I know that I can reach people and I know that I can engage with my “tribe” or “community” directly, without worrying about algorithms or paying for sponsored posts to be seen!! I’m sure those days are coming… and when they do, something new will be ready to replace Instagram. I have a few thoughts on that area of the inter webs that I’ll have to share sometime!

Legacy Redefined

  • It Started 30+ Years Ago

When I think of the word “Legacy”, for some reason I think of three things. 1. Grandkids, 2. Funerals and 3. Money. I’m not sure why those three things come to mind, but whenever the word “Legacy” is brought up, those three words linger in my brain. However, after this weekend, my mental response to the word “legacy” is shifting a bit. This weekend… actually the last TWO WEEKS… have been a whirlwind of travel, shoots, hosting, workshops and way too many hours spent on the road.

The Workshop Experience

  • Behind the Scenes | April 2015

This workshop was different. The layout was the same, the schedule was the same, the content was the same…. but it was still different. This was the LAST workshop in our home. It was bittersweet… and I always get a little teary during workshops when I explain our heart behind our business but I was EXTRA teary at this workshop because a lot is about to change for us. I know you’re all waiting to hear our plans and you know we’re going to share…. once we can! :)
