The Bomb Life: The Importance of Building a Network

Happy Monday! It’s been a little while since I’ve written here. I’ve been laser focused on building my personal business in the wake of our temporary IG hiccup. I am happy to report that things are on the upswing and we might be close to getting back to business as usual! In the meantime in between time, I’ve relied heavily upon my network.

The Bomb Life 101: Don’t Chase Money, Chase Greatness

I’ll never forget the first time I ever took analytics for the site and realized we had gotten 300 pageviews. To me, that was HUGE.
