How has social media helped you grow your business?
Social media has been a huge impact in my life and business. I grew up using myspace, aol & dare I say chat rooms… “Your true self, your first email address.” Social media is your medium to the world and you can find, connect and engage with people all around the globe in an instant! Kinda cool when you think about it. I love how I can find people with similarities and connect with them. I use Instagram the most and I honestly meet the most incredible people because of it!
What accomplishment are you most proud of with Societygal?
The fact that I have been able to connect so many women and given people a place to collaborate. So many collaborations and friendships have come from the community so that would definitely have to be the greatest accomplishment.
Where do you see the future of social media headed?
I really think people want to see peoples authentic lives — video is where its headed. People want more and they want to get to know other people on a deeper lever than just photos.
As far as businesses go on social media you HAVE to create a community aspect with your brand. People want the experience not just the product.
Women empowerment and inclusivity are key conversations right now. How do these tie into your brand and why are they important to you?
I feel like I was raised to support each other and especially women. I have always been such a collaborator in everything that I do — so it really just comes naturally to me. I love the saying “women supporting women is not a trend.” Although it may be a hot topic now I choose to believe it’s not a trend but rather an up-leveling of women everywhere. We are all in this together and there needs to be more love & support in this world.
What would be your dream project to work on?
I would love to do more traveling and trainings around the globe. That is my goal for this next year! I really feel blessed to be able to truly work from wherever so I really want to take advantage of that!
Where do you find inspiration?
I am really inspired by people who are really going out in the world and making a difference. I get so inspired when I see others stepping outside of their comfort zone and really taking time to help others. I aspire to do that more!
Favorite Instagram accounts?
Favorite secret spot in LA?
So recently my BF & I have been going to a place called EP & LP — they have a summer rooftop movie series. It’s so awesome; we watched grease a few weeks ago. It’s definitely a summer must! Nothing like watching a movie under the stars.
Favorite piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Don’t internalize things. Simple but so important.
Latte or cold brew?
I am all about the decaf life – ice please!
Leave us with an Instagram caption you love.
Good things come to people who wait, better things come to those who go out and get them!
