Reflecting on My PopSugar Article!
Happy May! Spring has gone by so quickly, but Summer is my favorite season by FAR.... sunshine just makes me happy.

What a crazy experience this past year has been. A rollercoaster of emotions, ups and downs, crying with a tub of ice cream on my couch to screaming about something super cool happening, and a million little things in between. As a business owner, you don't know really where your company is going to go, how it's going to grow, the speed of that growth, or how many people will tell you no. I mean, you definitely will have some sort of idea, but the no's definitely get to you sometimes.
I have chosen to now know that the no's are part of the process, and that it's just a part of success. I've been reading a lot lately, and I'm coming to the conclusion that no matter how many resources you think you have in the beginning, you will not be ready for everything, and everything will not go as planned. Entrepreneurs from every industry have had their fair share of no's, tribulations, and plain 'what the hell am I doing with my life" moments.
There are also going to be so many times when you say yes, this is the validation I need to keep going. Sometimes we just need that validation; that we are not working for nothing, that we are not wasting our time on a pipe dream, that we're choosing a hard but rewarding path and that this little win means we are doing SOMETHING right.
One of those "little wins" was this PopSugar article! Now, to me it was definitely not a "little" win, as I screamed when I got the email about the interview. A MAJOR online publication actually cared about what I had to say and the message I am sharing with my brand. WHAT??
Jessica, who interviewed me for the article was super kind, and great to talk to, and she put the interview up in a way that articulated the message I wanted to give exactly the way I wanted it to be understood, and for that I am so grateful!
So far the article has had 143 shares (!) and PopSugar Beauty also shared it with their 1.5 MILLION followers! Entrepreneurship is wild and I am so excited for what's next for the brand!
