Vixen turned 12 years old today!!! 🎉 Thank you so very much to anyone that’s ever believed in me and supported Vixen in anyway. Without you, Vixen wouldn’t be possible. Seems like only yesterday I was dragging around a pole all over Michigan doing in-home bachelorette and girls night parties. This hasn’t been an easy road. Long story short, being a small business owner is hard. Flat out! There’s no short cuts, manuals or secret sauce. Good ‘ol passion, persistence, my family and the incredible women that walk through the studio doors daily is what continues to push me forward! I love and appreciate you all. Your support & smiles are my fuel. 💕 #smallbusinessowner#entrepreneur#womeninbusiness#smallbusiness#girlboss#businessowner#polestudioowner

Tonight was date night with the hubby. So of course I needed a fun shirt to remind him we are getting old and can’t stay out all night as we did in our “younger days”. Can anyone else relate to this?
Getting the job done under all circumstances takes a solution oriented mindset.
Problems are just solutions waiting to happen.
Broken down vehicles in the middle of nowhere.... Solution! - find a truck to hire, whack it on the back and your in business.
It’s the same as building a global platform.

Your “for fun” side hustle can change your ENTIRE LIFE.
Don’t believe me? Don’t worry if so, I’ve been there.
I'm the first to admit that when I started my side hustle nearly three years ago, I did not have the vision for it that I do now ⛔.
Truthfully, I was just hoping to make a bit of extra money to help with my student loan payments or help out with groceries 🛍️.
At the time, I worked at an entry-level job in Manhattan, and even the extra couple hundred of dollars per month would have made all the difference for me 🤑.
Fast forward a few years, and all of the sudden, instead of having extra latte and gas bill money, I was waking up with notifications from readers and clients all over the world, and would leave meetings at my 9-5 with sales notifications on my phone 🌅.
It was incredible to see what I built in a short amount of time, and the entire time, I did it AROUND my day job.
Your side hustle has the potential to help you thrive and change your entire financial reality. I'll show you how in my new and free, 4-part series, Surpass Your Salary 👩🏫!
This series starts this week, and together we’ll map out your strategy to use your side hustle to surpass your 9-5 salary.
Ramp up the side hustle you love (that, let’s face it, is a bit too expensive right now) and finally find the freedom that drove you to start in the first place.

On count down until I fly to LA for business and then San Diego for @smexaminer Social Media Marketing World Conference 💫
The top social media marketers and minds in the world delivering their best content tips, trends and tactics. ✈️
Vision: believing in a grander version of the future before any concrete evidence exists to validate this belief. ✨
We all have to have a vision for our lives. A vision that inspires us to stretch and grow to a version of ourselves that we are so excited to discover. 💫
As you guys know, I have many dreams, goals, and aspirations. One of them is to become a world-wide known speaker and author in the space of personal development. 🌟
A dream becomes a goal when you add a strategy and a deadline to it, and this year is my year to become a published author and to become a highly sought-after speaker. I'm calling it in! ⚜️
Last year, I attended this incredible two-day event where you get to get strategic about planning for your upcoming year. I remember sitting in the audience and thinking "I wonder if someday I can get to speak rather than just attend an event like this." 🤷♀️
Maybe you've had a similar thought "maybe one day I can ______".
Today, was a first step in continuing to turn my dreams to a reality. One step of many to come. Heck, this whole week was a crazy twilight-zone-like full of amazing serendipities, rainbows, and incredible movement in my life. Today, I joined this event as a speaker and took a concrete step towards the life I'm creating for me and my family. Today, I said YES to stepping up and owning that we are ALL made for more, that we are all here to RISE to meet our full potential.
How about YOU? 👈
What are you saying YES to this year, this month, this week, TODAY? How are you stepping into your power and claiming it? How are you rising to meet your FULL POTENTIAL. How are you taking imperfect and courageous action on a daily basis to make sure you're daily making strides towards living your best life?
Let's all have a grand vision for our life, and even with our knees shaking, take confident, determined steps towards the future we know we are meant for.
You are worth it. Say yes to yourself and your best life! ✨

My imperfect, un-insta worthy, yet SUPER productive work space tonight! My business is currently in transition and being completely restructured. I am learning SO much and having a blast designing an entire new product line from the ground up. This is what sets my soul on FIRE and I can’t wait to share everything with you soon! New name. New products. New look. Everything. I’m so excited!

C U T I E S. I absolutely loved creating this custom portrait for @sarahbeth_lennon . Look how adorable their little fam is! If you’d like one of these for your sweet home, shoot me a message so we can get the party started! ❤️
It’s been 4 years since I started my small business journey. What began as a side gig of designing wedding invitations has grown into an influencer platform and creative agency with a team of five females offering social marketing and branding services to clients from San Diego to Boston.
Somedays it’s my saving grace and others it’s my own personal hell... but it’s MINE and hot damn do I love it.
In honor of female owned small businesses I’m launching a new blog series that will feature an interview with a different female small business owners every Friday. My hope is that this series empowers women out there to invest in themselves and turn their dreams into plans. Because every journey starts with a single step.
I’m starting the series off with my own story.... the good, the bad, and what I wish I would have known before I started this hot mess express. Click the link in my bio to see the blog.
