REAL TALKS.... collaboration | May 11, 2018 11:49
COLLABORATION OVER COMPETITION |
I figured it was time for a real talk blog!
Wow, the last few weeks have been all about collaboration, working alongside some pretty bad ass women! At the beginning of 2018, I made a vision board and one of the main things I wrote in my business section was COLLABORATE! When you open yourself up to have the help and support from others amazing things can happen. If you have been following me for a while you know I’ve just been plucking along at Earrings & Stuff solo. I definitely have been involved in some pretty amazing shoots & collabs etc along the way but this year has been my busiest when it comes to really banding together with like-minded entrepreneurs. When I set out on my maternity leave one main goal for my business was to put myself out there more. I did a couple markets & pop-ups and I knew that something great would come from it regardless if I didn’t sell much. The connections and business owners you meet at these events truly is the ultimate prize. So yeah as I sit here looking at my vision board come to fruition it has me grinning from ear to ear and I know I am exactly where I'm supposed to be! Side note I don’t want to be painting a perfect picture here either I definitely have lots of ups and downs as a small business owner! Just currently I am feeling up with all bad ass women I've been working alongside.
Another exciting career move I have made is helping other brands with their social media. Seeing how I am self-taught... (aka has taken me about 3-4 years to truly be happy with how my feed looks) inside I’m doing a little happy dance at this new opportunity. I’ve realized over the last year I love getting in there and making a brands look polished and organized.
So there you have it I did call my business Earrings & Stuff... so the stuff is really open to whatever! Jewelry, photographer, social media manager.. who knows! All I can say is at this moment I am taking in all opportunities with open arms. I hope you keep following along on my busy adventure being a mom, partner, business owner, waitress, friend, daughter, sister.. lol alright now that exhausted me!
Have a great weekend everyone! Tomorrow I am having my sons 1st birthday party followed by a stagette! And on Sunday celebrating Mother’s Day! So thinking I will be taking most of the weekend off to spend time with my loved ones and have some bevies of course. I still can’t believe Geoff and I survived the first year of parenthood. Wahoo!
