I had an emotionally taxing morning yesterday and I can’t lie, it took all desire out of me to write. But I had a good cry, took a step back and re-evaluated some things. So, a day late, I’m writing this…
This post contains some affiliate links because I have a few shopping habits.
Any opinions expressed are my own and accurate to the best of my testing ability.
I look at the people in my life and think to myself, “It’s no wonder that I admire you…” I don’t pretend to know it all or remotely have it all together, so there are lots of people that I look up to in trying to figure things out. It’s always important to have a community of people who you can bounce ideas off of, to have a shoulder to cry on and to know that someone has your back. Some of the people whom I admire I actually know, others I know from a distance.
Who is an expert you admire and why?
- Marriage expert: Fawn Weaver of the Happy Wives Club. I met Fawn when I first started this blogging journey and she is awesome! While I can’t call besties on her, we really hit it off. She’s very open and honest and we have a lot in common. I was privileged to be a part of her Happy Wives Club book tour about a year ago and I’m excited to get the next installment in the series on having an amazing marriage. She’s on a quest to find 1 million happy wives and is very close to that number. If you want to learn some secrets to a happy marriage, check out her book.
- Money expert: Dave Ramsey. He’s got it together in learning how to live on a budget and using biblical principles to clear out debt. I don’t. But if you want to learn those secrets and get your financial life together, check him out. I still have the entire kit and I know it works…I just haven’t taken the leap and shame on me…
- Fashion expert: MiMi G. OMGoodness I have a love + hate relationship with her. I met Mimi at a conference in April. I could have fainted. She is a rockstar in the fashion world and is an amazing seamstress. She is one of the coolest chicks on the planet and had a personality that makes you want to be her BFF for life. She has a body I would pay for and everything I see her wearing makes me want to break out the sewing machine and go to the gym. Then I get all stressed out about how I’ll never be able to wear clothes like her and then I eat a bunch of Snickers. Check out her site and store for some amazing fashion tips and wardrobe options.
- Blogging coaching expert: I have SO, SO, SOOO many people in my blogging community who have helped me and are helping me to make this thing work. I want to send a special shout out to Brandi from Mama Knows It All because she has been one of the most amazing people I’ve met along this journey and she is so inspirational. She truly believes in what she does and has a passion for helping others succeed in their business. I have moments where I get really selfish and don’t want to share knowledge with others, but whether she says it or not, she reminds me that a candle does not lose its light when lighting another. I admire her heart and her wisdom and am glad to know her. If you need some encouragement and motivation for your entrepreneurial endeavors, head over to Blog Strategy Report to get going!
I know there are more that I can add to the list…and maybe I’ll come back to update this post and share them with you. Because I know so many experts, I have a lot of things I need to do and accomplish…and I have to stop talking to do that…
