I didn’t intend to take an Instagram hiatus, but it happened! Because:
I’ve been in the thick of it lately. Life and work feels a little overwhelming, but I keep coming back to why the long days matter: this work supports women owned businesses, and it’s a privilege to spend my days doing just that.
So before I put my head back down and get to work, tell me about your “why.” I always love how much they vary from person to person!

This dress is making us blushhhhh! ⠀
We ALWAYS love ivory dresses but sometimes you've just gotta have a dress that has a little hint of color😍⠀
Our Annabelle dress by @willowbywatters has the most gorgeous bodice with little floral apliques that remind us it's allll in the details...⠀
I've had hundreds of conversations with individuals about what they're looking for in a partner, and you know what NOBODY says?
"I want someone who's pretending to be a more palatable version of themselves so they can gain others’ approval. Yeah, someone who's seeking validation from me to make them feel okay with themselves is a HUGE turn-on. Especially if they're afraid to admit what they want, because they're driven by fear, scarcity, and old abandonment patterns. HELLOOOO SOULMATE.👏🏻👏🏻”
Nobody, not NOBODY, is looking for that. 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♂️
So you might as well show up as your weirdest most authentic self and tell someone how you really feel and what you really want, because the right person for you will be foaming at the mouth for that shit. 🤤💕
Saturday car selfies are the best ✨ Children in the background talmbout, “can we leave yet?” ...yes, just had to do a little self celebration right quick, because the reality is, I’m always a hot mess on Saturday mornings 😂 Finally found my grounding in this pic. Celebrate yourself today, and everyday. Even when you feel like you’re raging against it all!

one year ago TODAY @mama.lark asked me to be her biz partner; help own + operate @larkskinco 🌿
there are no words to accurately describe how my life has changed since saying yes and making (yet again) another career change, but I can say I’m living a life so 👏🏼 freaking 👏🏼 fulfilled 👏🏼 in just one year, I’m amazed by the relationships I’ve built, friends I’ve made, the opportunities to travel and connect with other brands, the ability to positively impact lives by helping others feel more confident, my own confidence transformation, the list goes on and onnnnnn.
I’m so fortunate to have the opportunity to work along side Lisa as our brand’s CMO + operator and help us reach our sky-high goals. there are still so many ‘wtf’ + ‘who, me?’ moments 👉🏼 but even during the hard decisions and long nights there is nothing like the feeling of knowing you’re right where you belong.
thank you @mama.lark for trusting in me to join on this journey with you. here’s to many more incredible years! 🧡 #stlsmallbusiness#humansofstlouis#cleanskincare#createcultivate#bumblebizz#womenownedbusiness#girlboss

HONEST POST 💕
Anxiety is setting in full force my friends.
this is something I battle more than you can imagine & occasionally I like to be real and let people know what goes on behind the scenes..
Back story- I always fight depression in the winter ❄️ it’s harder to get out of bed and keep motivated
So far my journey @pinupstudio_nc has been such a fun ride with more opportunities to network in my community and positivity than I can imagine! Having a supportive boss like Christina and coworkers is SO rewarding!! Loving your work environment is EVERYTHING. & everything I was looking for!
But building a clientele again is STRESSFUL! Because you struggle with the financial aspect 😫 some weeks are great and the others are dead..
I was so used to having a secure clientele being at my last salon for 5 years. This is the first time I’ve ever changed salons.
you take a risk and make a change because you want to better yourself & BE HAPPY 🙌🏽 and overall I am..
but with changing salons comes losing clientele paired with so much saturation in the hair world, the constant need to post & rarely seeing anything come from it can be discouraging 😔
Anyone relate to this? or have tips/ positive vibes please drop a comment below 💕
ALSO If I’ve done your hair and you loved it please send a friend my way!
I will be forever grateful & give you $20 off your next service!
It was a long one!
If you’ve read this far THANK YOU & lots of love!! ❤️💋 Alexis

When Gill was creating the parenting app @dribble_app, she went about things in such a smart way!
Instead of just dropping the app and hoping that her audience of users would appear out of nowhere, she set up a Facebook group before production of the app had even begun! 👨👩👧👦 These users were able to see the progress, get involved in the design of the app and what should be on there and even got early test versions before launch. This helped to create a huge buzz and meant that these first users really felt proud of this thing that they had been a part of creating for so long and were therefore more likely to be active users and share with friends - a very smart strategy and amazing customer focus!
Did you involve your clients and customers in the initial launch of your business?
