10 Pieces of Wisdom That’ll Never Go Out of Style

May 7, 2018 Comments Off on 10 Pieces of Wisdom That’ll Never Go Out of Style

This is 40 Fit N’ Stylish‘s 100th blog post! Time moves so fast when building a business and managing a home. One of my most cherished parts of blogging is getting to connect with and learn from others. I thought it fitting to share 10 pieces of wisdom I’ve learned while working on 40 Fit N’ Stylish.

I must share that it feels super fitting that I ran into my friend Amy and bought this necklace from her at Dwell Local‘s event this past weekend:

Creating the 40 Fit N’ Stylish blog is a wish come true. It isn’t easy, yet it’s absolutely worth it. At this point, many have shared with me how much they enjoy reading it and how they’ve been inspired by different posts. I can’t tell you how great that feels. The last part of the charm necklace says, “Be Brave.” Starting a blogging business does take bravery. I feel like I need it more now than I did at the beginning. Growth is exciting and a little bit scary.
