Until you step into
you won't know what you're made of.
Alright, so a little about me!
I’m a midwest girl, living in South Dakota and LOVING it. I’ve taken on many different titles and jobs throughout my years on this beautiful planet, trying to find what’s “for me”.
After college I began a career in banking, first as a personal banker and shortly after becoming a bank manager. I stayed in this role for ten years! What!? Yeah, 10 years!
Throughout those years, I tried out many different side gigs, always searching for what would actually light my soul on fire (pardon the major cliche there). I tried my hand at network marketing, side gigs of starting a music for kids program, and finally starting a mobile boutique with my sisters. This last opportunity is where my heart finally began to sing (yes, again with the cliches).
Life on the Road
We started our mobile boutique, The Paisley Pod, in 2015. In the fall of 2016, I was given the opportunity to solely take over the business. My sisters are amazing, and knew that my heart didn’t belong in banking. They also knew that in order for me to leave that career, I needed to be sole owner of our boutique and helped to make that happen for me.
Fast forward to 2017, I finally was able to leave the banking world and begin my full time gig as an entrepreneur. This. Was. So. SCARY! Despite what you may think, entrepreneurship does not equal lots of money and free time. It is hard work with very little pay much of the time. But I stuck with it and was able to open a physical location in 2019. Woo Hoo! To check out the store and all the fun to be had there, click here! Also feel free to follow along with us on Facebook and Instagram.
Living in the Moment
The thing I love most in life (besides my three beautiful babes and awesome husband) is bringing people together where they are free to be authentically themselves, where they can have fun (yes, like a party—give me all the parties!) and where they can connect with myself and others while learning and growing and discovering how AMAZING they really are!
Which brings me to here and now. This site, this blog, this community. I hope that this can be a place for you to learn, to laugh, to grow, to accept your awesomeness, and to come together with others in this community we are building.
Here I will share about all the things that I love in this life, with the hopes of encouraging you, making you laugh, making you feel like you aren’t alone, and being a friend as we walk this life together. I’ll share tips and stories on:
mommin’ and family
style (I am a boutique owner )
health and wellness (including your body, mind, and soul)
mindset and encouragement
...and anything and everything that inspires you to live your life—wildly you!
