Having Support | Small Businesses

One of the hardest emails I get from small business owners/dreamers are the ones that include “my spouse/boyfriend/family/etc” don’t support me, they don’t believe in me. They think this is impractical, the investments are frivolous, it’s harder than it’s worth trying for. They feel alone and I don’t blame them, I would, too..and I have.  There was a…

Give Yourself A Break | Small Businesses

I am in a hotel room for the 8th time this year, and I LOVE every second of it. I am so thankful and you have NO idea how much I actually thoroughly enjoy this part of the job! I have ALWAYS been that little girl that checks into a hotel room and thinks it’s…

Putting The HUMAN Back In Small Business | Small Businesses

This is something I’ve subconsciously thought about blogging for a while but I never knew how. It’s a subject that isn’t easy to approach and I knew I would always go at it with caution, but when my bride emailed me back last night– she opened it up for me BEAUTIFULLY. And for that?! Mike…

All Washed Up Jewelry Giveaway | Small Businesses

When I moved here to the Outer Banks, I lost one of my favorite necklaces. I created an Instagram post asking for suggestions of local businesses who would be able to make something custom and one name popped up over and over, @AllWashedUpJewelry sisters! There is nothing more I love than supporting another small business…

Creative at Heart Conference Experience | Photography

I knew this was going to be big. I KNEW this was going to be inspirational. I knew my job was to be there for Kat and Taylor, spread the word about this conference and their mission, show up and tell them how I do my best to rock motherhood and busy business. What I…

The Vegetable Bin | Outer Banks Small Businesses

This little gem was stumbled up by complete accident earlier this week by yours truly in the POURING rain. The truth is, I actually had another farmer’s market in my GPS and when people kept slamming on their brakes on bypass I decided to ride from my house at Mile Post 4 in Kitty Hawk down toward…
