Ice Cream Cone Headband!

Hey All!

I’m coming to you live from Craftcation here in Ventura, CA. I’ve met so many amazing creators, artists, and designers and learned so many amazing new crafting techniques. I can’t wait to come up with some fun projects showcasing what I learned. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat to check out all the how to fun! I’m sharing all the fun projects I’m making and more!

This week I learned a valuable lesson in standing up for myself, my principles, my brand, and my business. If you’re a blogger and content creator, often times people do not think you know proper business practicing or they don’t think they have to be professional with you. I try to be professional almost to a legal degree with all that I do. My emails at times can sound like a legal brief! It’s eye opening when you get to see the latter. I stood up for myself and my work this week and I’m proud of myself for it no matter what the cost. Everyone should stand up for themselves and not just give in when you think something is incredibly wrong. In the long run, sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe in and what you feel goes against your principles. If you’re running your blog or website like a business, you should know proper business practices.

I learned this week I have the proper business practices done, but I need a team to go with that. So…while mid-travel I secured a new laywer (who knows website and brand issues specifically), an accountant, bookkeeper, and possibly a manager, so I don’t have to deal with yucky contract and payment stuff I don’t want to deal with any more. It’s far too stressful and insane to deal with and I’m DONE with a captial D. I want to just focus on bringing you all the brite and bubbly fun content and I know this will allow me to do that. These people specialize in these things. I don’t know why I haven’t done it sooner in the 7 years I’ve been blogging.

Sorry for the bitter bums portion of this Fab Friday post. It’s just something I needed to get off my chest in hopes it will inspire bloggers and content creators who want to make what they do a full time job or business to learn they need to know proper business practices in order to do that.

Now on to fab finds and products from around the net…
