I’m Speaking in Raleigh!

  • Creative at Heart Conference Round 7 Raleigh

I honestly don’t think I’ve seen her more excited about something since I got an email to photograph her own wedding!! The incredible Kat Schmoyer of Dear Sweetheart Events has been gearing up and planning what people are saying is going to be the BEST Creative at Heart Conference to DATE! Why is it so great? Well, honestly, I think that this has been a hard year for a lot a people. It’s been a hard year for people in business and it’s been a hard year for a lot of people personally. Kat has had challenges this past year, and we’ve had challenges this past year. While our challenges have been different, there is power in going through hard seasons and even MORE power in continuing to LEAD through hard seasons.

How to Find a Mentor | Guest Post by Jasmine Star

  • Ask Anything

Last week after my surgery, my sweet friend Abby Grace texted me and offered to curate some blog content for my blog since I physically can’t blog like I used to. I’ve tried… but using “talk to text” takes forever because of the mixture of auto-correct and my southern accent!!! Most of you know that blogging has been the heartbeat of my business for years and years. I’ve blogged religiously every week since 2008 with only a few exceptions. Well, during the last two months, that all changed. Between doctors appointments, moving and finding out about my hand tumor and surgery, blogging just wasn’t a priority. It couldn’t be. Now I’m learning to function with one hand and I couldn’t be more grateful for Abby and her willingness to help us create great posts for our audience!
