Content creating is the best job in the world! I get to create my own schedule, I am able to travel, and bottom line, I’m so happy.  But this isn’t the easiest job.

I am jotting down my thoughts because I think it’s so important to be valuable in front of those who support me.  So here is what’s going inside my brain.

ALL I WANT TO DO IS SCREAM! As a content creator, I typically send out pitches for collaborations with brands about 20 times a day.  Most of these emails result in no responses or rejections.  On the flip side, when I get a yes, it’s the best feeling in the world.  At first, hearing rejections were extremely hard and would sometimes cause me to be in a corner crying all night.  Not fun right?

There were so many nights I thought I was too fat or ugly and that’s why brands didn’t want to work with me.  Wow, if I heard anyone say that to my friend, I would punch them.  I started to become so mean to myself.

When you stick your neck out to the world, you are going to hear many no’s.  The bright side of all of this is that when you do get a YES, it means they really appreciate you for who you are and those are the people you want to work with.

Now the fun part! The positive side of my job! I GOT TO GO TO FASHION WEEK, I made some amazing friends, I AM MY OWN BOSS, the list can go on and on.

I’m tired, exhausted and this week, I might look sick in the stories.  That is all worth it because this is the first time I feel like I have full control of my life.  The good outweighs the bad when it comes to being your own #girlboss.

Another positive from my job is I have met some amazing babes! The content creating world can get a little lonely but I don’t think I would have been able to accomplish anything without my friends.  I’ve been blessed to be surrounded by people who understand my day to day process.  I am able to vent to them without judgement and have gotten some of the best advice to grow as a person. Some advices were better than my mom’s…. don’t tell her that I said that.

Like I said, the list goes on and on but you’ve been reading this for a while, so I’ll wrap it up.  I do this because you gorgeous ladies inspire me.  From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you for supporting Simple and Pretty Co. I hope to bring you more things and stuff your way because it’s about to get even crazier.

Speaking of getting it crazier, who’s ready for the #SIPANDMINGLE Naples and Tampa Editions? Although the Naples Edition is sold out, there are still 10 spots left for Tampa.  Create relationships with other like minded babes because being a content creator is defiantly a journey. My question to you is… why do it alone?
