Can you tell us a little about yourself (and your blog/page)?
My blog is all about inspiring to live a life that they love… whether that’s through sharing life stories, comfortable & cute clothing or talking about faith! I cover pretty much everything on my blog so I like to think there’s something for everyone. I have a section where I talk about my entrepreneurship and finances to help give people advice, most recently I’ve talked about this Bitcoin System Betrug, I have a section where I talk about life stories that I have learned a great deal from, a section where I discuss faith and what it means to me, and of course, I love to talk about fashion too!
What inspired you to join the Bearpaw Ambassador program?
I LOVE telling this story. I first found out about the company when I was at my brother’s snowy Minnesota outdoor wedding in JANUARY! I thought my feet were going to fall off, so I rushed to a local store to buy some boots and luckily found the Bearpaw Desdemona’s! They were perfect, fit underneath my dress, and my feet were warm the entire wedding (it was negative 15!). After that, I fell in love with the brand and obviously followed Bearpaw. The rest is history!
What do you feel makes you unique?
I own a social media agency as well as run my blog! In a way, you could say my blog is a secret way for me to practice lead generation. A lot of the methodology involved in how to build a lead generation website or how to create engaging content is very similar to that which goes into blog writing. Sometimes the ideas I write about in my blog often show up again in my professional work, and vice versa. Like I said earlier, it’s all about inspiration and sharing and I feel my experiences gives me a unique edge.

How do you #livelifecomfortably?
I #livelifecomfortably by working from home (my office is very well organized, I need to make sure that I have an office space set up otherwise I can’t work… even something as simple as having a good office supply store where I can get all my bits and bobs from is a lifesaver), constantly wearing leggings (and my Bearpaw slippers obviously), snuggling my dog Snickerdoodle, and spending quality time with the ones I love! A lot of people always wonder how I work from home without getting distracted. I honestly don’t know how I do it. Some of my friends have struggled with this and have had to contact companies that sell metal buildings kansas. My friends seem to think that separate home office rooms are much better as there are no distractions and they can separate their work life from their home life. That’s a good idea, but I seem to get on fine inside my house!
