Happy 4th of July! Hope you are all going to take some time today to hang out with friends and drink a well deserved spritz (just maybe sans flag print apparel and plz keep your pups inside – psa over). Okay, so I’ve been off the radar for a little while. A long while. I missed you guys! I didn’t mean to disappear for such a long time, but the last few months were a big learning experience and I’m excited to share everything with you.

I guys, it’s Laura.

Listen – I had a catastrophic accounting mistake that happened early on in my freelance career by assuming that any CPA could manage my taxes. What happened was the CPA who was more experienced with brick and mortar businesses, made mistakes that it took me years and hundreds of dollars to fix with the help of another CPA. That was essentially money and time thrown down the toilet and I was very bitter about it for a long time.

If you are like any entrepreneur  (or maybe I’m specifically speaking for myself, that I’m sometimes way too disorganized) then you could potentially benefit from an online business manager.

Once you reach a point in your business where you have solid profits and are growing your revenue, it is important to consider what you can take off your plate. Initially, you may begin to outsource things to a virtual assistant or someone who handles particular tasks for you such as graphic design or social media.

Starting your own business comes with all kinds of ups and downs, but things can get much more emotional when you have to involve your family members. Whether you are starting a side hustle or planning to launch out of a traditional career into a more non-traditional one as a blogger or other online business owner, your family members may not understand what you are doing. 

Out of concern, they may deflate your excited bubble over launching your own business.

Discovering that you cannot do #allthethings in your business is an important milestone. First of all, it’s okay to accept that you can’t do it all (sorry to tell you, but we’re all human!)

Why Outsourcing?

 

If you don’t realize that you need to outsource, you’re headed straight for my least favorite roadtrip down Burnout Boulevard. You’ll start missing deadlines, feeling frazzled, and making mistakes.

Do you ever have one of those moments where it feels like work is your whole life? As in: you haven’t attended any non blog related social events in months, you talk to more people on Instagram and in blog comment sections than you do in real life, and you have to tear the phone out of your own hands so you stop building your Pinterest boards at 1am? Today, while hanging out in my favorite blog &

If you’re ready to give up, that means you’ve already taken a very important step – you’ve made the leap, taken a risk, done something big! To feel like giving up means you have to have started something already, which is HUGE. It’s also the most important thing to remember when you get to a point that makes you feel like throwing in the towel; at some point in time you wanted to do this,

There are more opportunities today to create success in unconventional, out of the box ways than there ever used to be. You can build your own brand, create a business based on what you have to say, start your own store, publish books….and you can do it on your own terms. You can work from home in your pajamas, or a beach in France. You can build an empire with nothing else but big ideas,

Los Angeles is a difficult place. Glitz, glamour, drunk celebrities falling out of their cars, Amanda Bynes in a wig- all things you’d expect on a given day. But down to earth, holistically healthy, hilarious, and insanely nice? Definitely not in LA. Right?

Wrong.
Enter: Whitney English.

It’s safe to say that I’m mildly obsessed with Whitney. I mean, the girl’s got it going on. From writing about health to pursuing her dreams in the cutthroat world of Tinseltown to interviewing some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities….this 28 year old tv host and blogger is one motivated,

If I have one single easy as hell but will totally change your life forever tip, it is to invest in some killer eyelash extensions. I normally don’t suggest spending extra bucks when you don’t have to, but lash extensions will seriously change your life. They make you look like Miranda Kerr without having to put on any more than a dusting of mineral powder & a swipe o’ cherry chapstick. Talk about major time saver in the mornings (and my ADHD,
