This is the place to…

learn how to become a better blogger by honing your writing, photography, and marketing skills. We’re here for everyone from the hobby blogger to the full time career blogger. We’re focusing on things like writing, Photoshop, Lightroom, Final Cut Pro, and Canva. This is where you come when you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the things you’re supposed to do as a blogger and need to vent. This is the place to share memes, crack jokes, and be vulnerable. This is the place to ask the scary business questions about taxes, paying yourself, or what investments you should make.

This isn’t  the place to…

equate your worth with your career or blog. You’re more than that. We’re focused on happiness, dedication, and community… all the things that will bring your financial and emotional abundance. This isn’t the place where we pretend like you need to quit your 9-5 and become an entrepreneur to be a “real” blogger. Quite honestly there are several ways to have success online. Some ways involve doing it full-time while others do not. In this community we don’t pretend or oversell or lie. This is a place of truth. If that’s something you want… you’ll love it here.

First, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting this community. If you’ve been here since the beginning or if today is your first visit I truly appreciate you. I worked really hard to ensure that the membership area is valuable, personal, and real. If you hold those values dear I know you’ll be an amazing member.

I know that to truly turn this community into all it can be I need your help which is where membership comes in. This membership area will allow me to help many more of you. It’ll also ensure that I can pay writers, photographers, and host events all over the country… and I hope to eventually expand abroad. If you have any questions never hesitate to reach out and again, I want to thank you so, so much.

xo,

Candice
