Emotional Holdups | Personal Branding

Let’s just start with being COMPLETELY HONEST and FORWARD: Because of the audacity I had to create a personal brand… Our family lives on the Outer Banks I have consistently doubled OR tripled my husband’s income yearly  I get to call the shots on when and where I shoot and be a little picky I…

PERSONAL BRANDING: Is your holdup EMOTIONAL or TECHNICAL?

I opened up a conversation I was SO READY FOR weeks ago on Instagram… but it’s a heavy one and I think all of us involved in this conversation literally held hands and jumped into the deep end of the pool together, not knowing where the bottom was. I can’t believe I’m about to say…

How I Use My Simplified Planner(s) | Salt Air Entrepreneur

YES QUEEN! Here we go! I love my planner(s). I have to pluralize that because I have a weekly academic year planner (August 2019-July 2020) for the girls and their life priorities and my big mama daily calendar year planner for all 654 of my jobs, LOL! It was SUPER freeing to me to be…

12 Hours Weekly, 8 Years Later | Salt Air Entrepreneur

I wish I could find a better word than FUNK, but funk’s gonna have to be it. For months I’ve been in the weirdest mental space (sharing this on Instagram stories and finding other moms that are in the SAME season, we are feeling weird together!) and after being a mom for the past almost…

Quarterly RESETS + Instagram Breaks | Salt Air Entrepreneur

I have been a business owner for 8 years – and like mentioned on this blog previously, I actually went almost the ENTIRE duration of that without taking more than a week off of social media. Even when all three of our children were born, every few days at least I was still posting and…

Up at 4:30 A.M. | Salt Air Entrepreneur

I know people who would shudder at this blog title, HA! But they are also the night owls who outdo me in staying up late. What do you MEAN you were up until 11pm!?!? LOL! I can’t even. I used to be a night owl and after Cammy started elementary school – we had to…

Simplified Planners with an Online Calendar

I ended shooting a family session the other day to look down at my phone to see a voice text message waiting for me from one of my favorite people. She told me she’s been using her online calendar for a while and although she LOVED the Simplified Planner when she had it, she didn’t…
