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

Fashion Bomb Daily was born out of a desire to fuse my love of passion with writing. My initial musings to myself (and friends and family) gave me life and so much joy. 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.

When she was later diagnosed with breast cancer, she continued to work while on chemo because she…
