Spring Cleaning Your Social Media [Part 2]

Amanda Oliver • branding girlboss

Hey ya’ll! Welcome back to my multi-part series on Spring Cleaning Your Social Media! If you haven’t checked out Part 1, you should do that first 🙂 And in case we haven’t met before, I’m Amanda and I blog over at The Color Coded Life. On to today’s topic! After last week, we should now know who we want to target with our Social Media as well as where our fabulous ideal audience hangs out. Now we want to look at how we can find more of our dream buyers/readers/etc. on whichever platform (or multiple platforms) that they frequent the most. There are two main ways to do this and, whether you choose to do both or just one, either of them can help you both find your audience and track what they like and don’t like of what you post, tweet or share online. All forms of social media have search … Read More

5 Must-Have Apps for the Creative #GirlBoss

Sami Davis • branding girlboss

Every #GirlBoss has their arsenal of apps to keep them on track and help them remember every little thing (I get goldfish brain frequently–I’m telling ya!) There’s an infinite number of apps out there and honestly, I get really confused sometimes on trying to pick out which one is best for me. How many downloads does it take to find the perfect app?! Probably like 5. Instead of having to scour the app store, try these top 5 apps every creative freelancer and business owner need in their life! 1. VSCO Cam (Free) This will probably always be my #1! If you’re an Instagram junky (like me!) you need this app for minimal, yet impactful, photo editing. Curated filters that enhance the natural characteristics make your photos look like a pro photographer took them. I’m seriously obsessed, and if you haven’t gone over to the VSCO side, you definitely need … Read More

Expand Your Reach Podcast

Heidi Moore • branding girlboss studio

This month, I did something I never thought I would do. Something a little bit terrifying (okay, a lot a bit terrifying), but super rewarding. If you guessed that I had a dance off with Usher, the answer is – not yet, but that’s still on the list of things to do. I guest starred on a podcast! I was interviewed by Dana Malstaff, founder of the Expand Your Reach podcast. Dana is a creator, innovator, strategist and a downright kick-ass #girlboss who loves Harry Potter just as much as I do. During our time, we chatted about my ‘why’ (& the journey I took to discover it), if I could do anything in the world what it would be, and how my dream of idieh design came to life. For more on my story, and maybe a thing or two that could add to yours, check out the podcast here: The Story Behind … Read More

cupcakeMAG Feature | Powerful Women to Watch

Heidi Moore • branding girlboss

This month I was SO honored that cupcakeMAG wanted to do a Q & A with me to chat business, life, and what it means to be a true #girlboss. Not to mention, this wasn’t just any spring issue. It was the issue with Molly Sims on the cover. Freaking Molly Sims! She is a do-it-all, every day super mama which made me geek out just a little bit when I found out I would be featured in her issue. It doesn’t stop there. The always incredible Lara Casey is also in this issue! Lara is queen of Making Things Happen (also the title of her conference) as the Editor-In-Chief of Southern Weddings. I feel like I’m in a dream being surrounded by these rockstar women paving the way for girl bosses everywhere. If you want to read more about my interview with cupcakeMAG Editor-In-Chief, Casi, flip to page 50 of the … Read More

Hey y’all, Maureen here! Today I wanted to share some must reads that I’ve got on my bookshelf to fuel my creative fire. As a #girlboss, it’s essential to stay focused and inspired to pursue projects that make you happy, and self-help books are a great way to learn from experts who have paved their paths as creative entrepreneurs.

That’s part of being a gal who lives on the corner of heart and hustle, right? Here are ten ridiculously rad reads to help you express your passions, key into your main motivations and help you perfect your personal brand and business. Creative Confidence by Tom Kelley and David Kelley ($17) We were all born creative, but why (and when) did we ever stop? … Read More
