I sincerely hope that my blog serves a resource to you all, especially with all the new content I will be putting out this year. But I by no means pretend to have this all figured out. Not by a long shot.

In fact, I read... a lot. Thanks to the internet, you can get some of the best advice from people in your field that just happen to be a few years down the line. I personally love hearing from other women that are entrepreneurs because they give great insight into what it means to be a young female just starting out on this online business journey, and most of them run in-depth, content heavy blogs that are packed with an incredible amount of information.

On MY blog today, I’ve put together some of my go-to blogs that cover all things business related, run by intelligent and entrepreneurial minded women. I’m sure you’ll recognize some of the names on the list, but hopefully you find a few new favorites as well.
  • Playing with type for a little personal branding project
  • New to the resource library today: a lettering lesson for Fresh Start.

I’m still enjoying the New Year mentality of a fresh start. I always set plenty of goals for myself this time of year so that I really push myself and set myself up for success, but there’s also a lot of grace and empathy that goes into this time of year as well for all the goals that I didn’t meet last year or fell just short of and the ideas or projects that fell by the wayside. A fresh start means not beating yourself up over the areas where you fell short, but rather setting new goals for the year ahead and trying again. I think we all could use a fresh start every once in awhile, not just in the New Year, but there’s no time like the present!
  • Pulling some test prints of a sweet little mountain sketch. The original drawing was done as a concept for a tattoo for a dear friend. A different mountain was chosen in the end but I still keep coming back to this one, so I knew it needed to be turned into something else. Which one is your favorite, black or white ink?

  • Originally they were calling for snow here in Raleigh and I was ready for it! As much as I love warmer weather I also like for winter to feel like winter and wearing short sleeves in January has been throwing me off a bit. It doesn’t mean I won’t cozy up at home anyway though!
