Hey there! Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

That’s where I come in! I’m here to be totally transparent with you about my blogging journey and provide valuable, no-BS solutions to whatever challenges you’re facing as you begin your entrepreneur journey!
A little about me…
(Here’s a lil’ throwback of me and my husband back in high school- we were so young!!)
I’m Brandi, a 20-something marketing and business strategist obsessed with helping women build an authentic brand for their online business. I want to help you grow your audience and earn a living from whatever you’re passionate about. So whether it’s blogging, selling digital products, or whatever other (hopefully legal) way you’re making money online, I’m here to help!
I’ve had my fair share of blogging mistakes in the past, so believe me when I say I know what you’re going through.
In fact, my decision to get a degree in business marketing stems from the complete and utter failure of my first blog.
Seriously, it didn’t even last 6 months. I’d started a blog where I shared travel tips and fun travel destinations in my area. It actually did fairly well (I even earned a small income from it) but I wasn’t passionate about it. Eventually it got to the point where I was only writing about certain topics for the sake of keeping up appearances on my blog. This is 100% the wrong way to approach blogging and why that blog ultimately failed.
So, I gave up on the whole travel blog idea. One thing I learned from that experience though was, while I definitely wasn’t that passionate about traveling…
I was passionate about blogging.
I had SO. MUCH. FUN. learning about SEO, affiliate marketing, and branding. It was just like running a business, which is when it clicked for me: if I wanted to succeed at making an income with blogging, I needed to treat my blog as a business.
So, when I started my degree in business marketing, I decided to give blogging another shot. And this time, I was going to do things right. I wanted to create a blog that I’m not only passionate about, but transparent with my audience about.
I don’t want to create this illusion that some bloggers do by saying things like ‘blogging is soooo easy!’ or ‘you can start a successful, money-making blog overnight!’ because that’s just not true (although I SO wish it was!) But, if you’re willing to put in the time, work and effort it takes, you can reach your blogging goals.
So, whether you’re in college just trying to make a side hustle to pay off some student loan debt or looking to build the business of your dreams, I can help steer you in the right direction.
