When I was the most “successful” on the outside, I was the emptiest on the inside.
I’ve been in business for 4 years, a full-time blogger for 2, and have been featured on Forbes, the Huffington Post, Thrive Global, and 500+ media sites.
I’ve worked with Amazon, BestBuy, and Target, and 1000’s of other brands as an influencer and gained 300,000+ followers across all my social media channels.
I’ve also spoken on stages all over the world teaching my blog and marketing strategies and compiled them all into online courses for people to access from home.
I was chasing after fame and money and had achieved a lot of what I was striving for, but something was missing.
Something that money couldn’t buy…
The reason behind why you do what you do.
I thought I knew what I wanted and I thought I had a purpose…
But when your life is all about the next accomplishment or achievement, it becomes meaningless because you’re always chasing after something else and it always alludes you and you’re never satisfied.
While having goals is important and striving to be the best you can be is good, doing everything in life for your own gain only gets you fleeting success and happiness, not everlasting success and happiness which can only be found in God.
Which is why I have rebranded and changed my focus and efforts this year.
My brand used to be all about money, how to make money, how to make MORE money, etc… money was totally my idol because I had made it my ultimate purpose and I gave it waaaaay too much power over me.
While money is super important because we need it to survive, it can’t be your end all be all. Because if it is, it will end you and all you will be is a slave to it.
My new mission is to help Christian bloggers and influencers market and monetize their content so we can start to see more uplifting Christian content in the media. God gave you a voice, use it for His glory.
While the focus of my courses is still on how to monetize your content, it’s now focused on a higher purpose. We need money to serve our communities, to support our families, but with more money comes more responsibility.
With each new blogger/influencer that comes out of the LadyBossBlogger program, they will choose a charity of their choice to support (or create a charity) so that together we can make the world a better place.
Additionally, with more influence comes more responsibility. As your blog or Instagram page takes off from the course’s marketing training materials, make sure to keep God front and center as your focus.

The story behind the blog…
Before I started blogging, I was in the wedding industry. I worked my way up the corporate ladder and landed the prestigious title as the National Wedding Sales Manager for a global company. It was my dream job!
My job was my life and I worked 24/7, but I loved what I did so it never felt like work. (But also I was a slave to money, which is why I worked all the time).
However, it all came crashing down when I received a devastating phone call from my boyfriend. His older brother had been missing for a week and he was calling me with an update.
He had just found his brother’s body… he had been brutally murdered.
Shock and disbelief set in at the same time. We had just spent Christmas together in Honduras and were getting ready to celebrate his brother’s 28th birthday in January. I didn’t know what to do, all I knew was that I needed to go to Honduras to be there for him and his family during this time.
I called my boss and asked if I could attend the overseas funeral, but his response shocked me. He said NO… because it would affect sales.
I realized at that exact moment that I was merely a dollar sign to the company. So I quit, packed my life up into 2 suitcases, and moved to Honduras.
However, I didn’t realize how hard the transition would be. I had left my home, my friends, and my job (which was a huge part of my identity), and had moved to a developing country where I didn’t speak the language or understand the culture.
My “wedding industry skills” and sales skills were all useless there and I started to feel extremely isolated. The only person I could talk to was my boyfriend and he was going through a rough time.
So I started this blog as an outlet for me to learn how to make money online and become a LADY BOSS BLOGGER.
When people started flooding my inbox asking me how I scaled my blog so quickly and started my own business with just $12.18, I decided it was time to compile all my best strategies into a simple step-by-step master class.
If I can do it, so can you.
I’m just an ordinary girl who was pushed to think outside the box because of my God-given circumstances.
Oh yea and if you’re wondering what happened to my boyfriend and I…
We got married at The Micah Project a year later.
A portion of all proceeds from LadyBossBlogger goes to The Micah Project, which is a home for street kids in Honduras.
My husband was once one of those boys, which is why this charity is really close to my heart.
Plus the blog was actually founded on The Micah Project property – they took me in for a month when I moved down there to give me time to find my own place.
I want to encourage you to start your own blog and/or Instagram page and share your God-given story. How has He been working in your life? How has He challenged you recently? What have you been learning?
Life was meant to be shared, our stories need to be heard. God has given each of us a powerful life story, SO TELL THE WORLD ALL ABOUT IT!
