Hi guys! Since you landed on this blog post (most likely from Instagram) you already know that 2017 has been a whirlwind for me so far. As it always tends to do, January disappeared in the blink of an eye. Instead of feeling like I’m a month behind however I’ve decided to kick off 2017 today, February 1st and really dive into everything head first.
Fun fact? I’m writing this blog post at the famed Versace Mansion aka Casa Casuarina aka Gianni Versace’s house and place of death. It’s absolutely stunning! You’ve probably heard of this place if you follow any of the Kardashians on Instagram as they frequent the mansion on their trips to Miami. Other than that, it’s now run as a small hotel with a restaurant inside. Anyways, I’m here for the day for a client event and am having the best time. In addition to getting a ton of work done, I also managed to snap a few photos which I’ll be sharing on my Instagram throughout the week.
Days like today are a large focus of mine for this year. I plan on expanding my personal brand as well as my professional brand which is something new for me. I’ve always been pretty separate when it comes to my personal life vs my work life, but I feel like it’s the time to bring everything together. The theme of this year is to consolidate all the different pieces and projects I have going on into one centralized place. This blog in part will be a big part of that!
In the upcoming weeks I’ll be sharing a look at some of the projects I’ve been working on over the past year. In 2016 I launched Rove Jewelry and Collars4Change, got back into food blogging, expanded my work clientele base, traveled, networked and developed a 5 year plan for myself.
