Nine years ago, I quit my “real” job to become an online superstar.
I wanted to quit my “real” job to become an artist. The online superstar part was totally optional.
I started a blog, cause I though that’s what you do when you want to make a living on the Internet.
For months my grandma was the only one that read it.
And then, I got this email from a girl who lived millions of miles away inviting me to be a part of a blog tour.
My first reaction was: She must have the wrong person. So I immediately replied, “YES!!!” Just like that, in all caps and more exclamations than I’d like to admit. I acted quickly. Secured my chance. God forbid she found out I wasn’t really a big deal and changed her mind.
That’s how I met my best friend and one of the most brilliant, biz savvy and downright insane creative minds in the world – April Bowles.
The rest, as they say, is history.
If you don’t already know April, you will absolutely LO-VE her. Like, girl crush, psycho stalker mode LOVE her to pieces.
She is wicked smart (like Hermione), bossy as hell (it’s hilarious), can fish tail her own hair (so jealous), runs the world with a cup of hot tea in her hand (preferably an Anthropology mug), and is the girl to blame behind all my ku-ra-zy pants ideas (including but not limited to making me wear an adult tutu for a promo trailer.)
We’ve been partner for longer than anyone we’ve seen these days. And in Internet years, which fly faster than dog years, that means something. We are a dinosaur duo, pretty much. We’ve survived launches + vacations (with our husbands) + Hurricanes (literally and metaphorically) + sickness + health + loss + birth… we made it through… and we’re still standing, but it feels more like hanging out.
Wanna hangout with us?
Over the next few weeks, I’m hosting a bunch of LIVE events to chat about creative business + lifestyle design… and the messy middle. You bring the caramel popcorn, I’ll bring my bestie.
April and I come together ONCE A YEAR to bring you Operation World Domination – a mastermind for creatives and innovators who want to make a living doing art, any kind.
We’re spilling the beans about what’s coming ahead TODAY!!! A Facebook Live at 3PM EST. You can join us right here on my fanpage!
It’s going to be a super fun call. You want to be there. If you can’t make it, check my page later for the replay.
And then, we have a bunch of other stuff planned for us to hangout.
Here’s our upcoming event calendar:

We’re so excited to host a call with Marie this year so OUR PEOPLE have the opportunity to ask her questions related to B-School. Instead of a huge call where you feel completely overwhelmed, you get your own special call with us as the hosts, helping you to feel comfortable. Come prepared with any questions you have for Marie and we’ll help you get them answered.
I’m throwing a dance party on my Instagram right before. Come watch!
I’m soooooo excited to kickstart our Operation World Domination and B-School 2018 season with you.
