Hi Just Get Fit fam! Today I’m excited to share a little bit more about myself, what I love, and what drives me! I’m so blessed to be a part of the team here at Just Get Fit as the Marketing Team Leader. I hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit more about me.
Growing up, I always had such a drive to find ideas for businesses. I would set up lemonade stands outside on Saturday afternoons and always look forward to the weekends when my parents had a garage sale and I could bake cookies and cupcakes to sell. As I got a little older, my younger sister Raegan and I started making jewelry and selling it wherever we could. We started setting up a booth once a year at Market Days and came up with different ideas to make money.
As a kid, we would always visit our sweet elderly neighbors who taught us to crochet. Once Rae and I started, we found so much success selling our items on Etsy, a handmade marketplace online. After another year at Market Days, we had both made enough to buy our first cars and were still looking for ways to expand our business or try something new. In the past few years, I started using my instagram that I had originally created for our Etsy shop as an avenue to share my heart and thoughts about my faith and just life in general. I began a blog and was amazed at how quickly it took off and the connections it allowed me to build with other people online. I moved away from making products and started to produce writing and photo content online.
The growth of my instagram and blog has allowed me to work with many brands including Victoria Secret Pink, Abercrombie, Outdoor Voices, The Bumble App, Sugar High Clothing, Daniel Wellington Watches, Colgate, and more. I’ve learned how to build a brand and earn money through instagram, all while using my voice and love for writing to reach people and encourage them. It has been an incredible opportunity for me. I have been amazed at the community social media can build. I am passionate about using social media in a positive way, to encourage, inspire, and motivate!
I am currently going into my junior year at Florida State, studying marketing with a minor in communications. Although I’m not 100% sure what I’d like to do with my degree once I graduate, I’m excited to collect as many experiences as I can and hope that eventually those experiences will lead to owning a successful and impactful small business of my own.
I am so blessed to be able to use my love for social media, marketing, and small business here at Just Get Fit!
