#3: In this episode, I am in the "hot seat". My husband, Jordan Carpenter, interviews me and we share a bit more on how it how it all got started and why I created my blog in the first place. Contrary to what many think, I didn't have the confidence to pursue my blog full-time and leave my desk job. On December 3, 2015, I was fired unexpectedly from my job at a CPG brand as their Earned Media Manager. This led me to pursue my own brand full-time and embark on this crazy journey running my food blog and Instagram full-time. I chat about my brand partnerships and how those came about, answer a handful of your questions about the behind-the-scenes over here and I open up about the in's and out's of running my business solo. For more from me, follow along @rachLmansfield and pre-order my cookbook, Just the Good Stuff.Thank you, Garden of Life, for sponsoring this episode. I share all of my Garden of Life favorites here.
