By partnering with them to bring their goods to the United States and share their stories.

Episode #10 Let's Be... Introspective In Our Business Relationships
I'm sitting in the hot seat today and Megan is interviewing me on a topic that has been on my mind lately! Since I started this podcast over the past 10 weeks, I've been amazed at the awesome people that have shown up here and it has had such an impact on me and my attitude towards how I treat my business relationships today. I think that there might be a bit of a lack of thoughtfulness when dealing with our business relationships and I know that we can change it. Honestly, this episode involved a lot of soul searching for me and after this, I'm so inspired to handle situations a bit differently than I have in the past! What we are covering today... ✨Realizing when we weren't so thoughtful. ✨How to stop getting yourself in situations where you feel underappreciated. ✨How to better appreciate our colleagues!

Episode # 9 Let's Be...Young + In Business
We so often hear amazing stories of women talking about leaving behind the nine to five for the entrepreneur life. And I just love those stories. But what if there were some of us out there that don't necessarily need to have that experience and know right away what we want our paths to look like? What would some of our careers look like if we just let our stories be written then and there by following our passions and our instincts instead of letting societal norms be the driving force behind our decisions?
Megan began her career as a hair and makeup artist when she was just 18 and has since made a splash in the wedding scene here in the Carolinas. She now has a team of artists that work with her and she's always looking for ways to grow and expand her business.
What we are covering today with Megan...
How following your passion can lead to long-term success.
The struggles of being young & in business.
How to turn those negatives into positives.

Episode # 8 Let's Be... Goal Crushers
When we were little, Alice in Wonderland taught us that if we don't know where we're going, any road will take us there. Okay, maybe we didn't think too much about that when we were six and enjoying the fun and colorful adventures in Wonderland. But these days as an entrepreneur, this is a pretty pivotal idea for me.
If we don't have direction in our businesses, we can choose just about any route; we don't have a destination without direction, goals or a plan. We're just letting our businesses operate instead of achieve. And I don't know about you, but I want my business to achieve some pretty big things! Setting goals to help give us that direction is one of the most important things that we can do. So, I've asked my favorite goal crushing guy to sit down with us and give us the inside scoop.
After 13 years in the corporate world as a senior vice president of marketing for a financial firm here in Charlotte, Jason saw a gap in the financial world that needed to be filled, so he took matters into his own hands. Last year, along with his business partner bestie, he started not one but two companies, one a wealth management firm, and the second is an educational platform to help coach people on how to accelerate their path to financial security.
So, when I sat down and made my list of who I wanted to come on the podcast to talk about goals, I just knew we had to make room for my sweet husband and his expertise in our pink little glittery corner.
What we're covering today with Jason...
Why traditional goal setting doesn't work for most of us.
How we can change our mindset to being able to set goals we actually want to accomplish.
The action steps that we need to take to get the end result that we truly want.

Episode #7 Let's Be...Balanced!
Being balanced is a crazy hard thing to do as creative entrepreneurs! Especially when you're juggling running your full-time business, managing your personal life and wearing ALL the hats. Now, what if you were to throw a part-time job in the mix, what would your life look like?! I'm going to take a wild guess and say that it would take quite a bit to keep things harmonious in our lives. Well, my new friend Kate from Kate Lynn imagery does just that.
Four years ago, Kate was working a full-time job and kept her photography passion as a hobby. When Kate lost her grandma back in 2016, she took a step back and realized that her career wasn't doing anything to help her follow her passions. She realized that she was ready to step into the world of being a full-blown business babe.
The only hold-up was that pesky little thing called money and walking away from her full-time job meant the loss of some pretty sweet income. Kate did not let that stop her from taking the leap and finding a way that she could pursue her passion for photography and still be financially secure!
For those of you out there that are on the fence of leaving your nine to five, you're going to love this episode!
