The end of last year I was hard at work putting the final touches on the program for Glamtreprenuer’s “Biz Glam” pop up workshops, the goal of which is to get girls excited about entrepreneurship from a young age. It’s been an awesome, interesting journey and we are finally ready to unveil it!
If you are interested in hosting a Biz Glam pop up, we can do it in one of two ways. You can hire us to work directly with your organization, or you can purchase the curriculum online.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always always always knew I would be an entertainer. As a child, I would lay down a blanket in my living room as my stage. I put on my favorite leotard and would sing and dance around for everyone and anyone who was there! That never stopped. As I grew older to a young adult, I would hook up my discman

Why did you seek out this particular job / start your company? Actually, I didn’t start out with the idea of starting a company. I had been chemically treating my hair for years and with all the damage, I had to cut it off and give it a rest.

Why did you seek out this particular job / start your company? My love of all natural ingredients and essential oils is why I started my company, Incredibalm. I was introduced to essential oils and immediately was amazed at the therapeutic effects they have on the body. I also have a passion for using all natural ingredients, especially in skin care. The idea of all natural and organic oils and butters combined with therapeutic-grade essential oils was

The number one struggle in the digital age: how to get work done when you receive a stream of never ending emails? This topic seems to be a regular source of conversation with many people.
It’s a continuous and almost impossible challenge to not let emails distract me during a busy work week. When I’m trying to write or get a project done it takes me twice as long if I’m checking and responding to email during the process.
I am a big believer in setting goals on this blog. I’ve always felt that if I put something out into the universe I will be held more accountable. I think writing something down, especially in a public place, puts more pressure on you to get it done!
When I look back at 2014, there are definitely things that I feel like I could have done better or things that I could have focused on more. But, that is what New Years Resolutions are for, right?!
Not all of my resolutions are negative, some are things I succeeded in this

Why did you seek out this particular job / start your company?
I was in my early 20’s, working as the accessories buyer for a teen fashion brand when a colleague approached me with an idea. He’d just bought a laptop and couldn’t find anything other than the ubiquitous basic black laptop briefcase to carry it in. Those bags didn’t suit him or his lifestyle and with nothing else available at the time he cobbled together his own solution. He bought a padded envelope

I think I am writing this post because I feel a little guilty. I have been the number one advocate of mornings. I feel like I am always preaching that I can be so productive because I wake up early and get stuff done. However, lately I have fallen off the wagon, so to speak, and I can definitely feel it.
Maybe it is because I have been staying out later or the weather is getting cooler or

OMG, WTF I can’t believe it is December! Where did the year go?! Part of the reason for my December Denial has to be the weather. Thanksgiving weekend was the 70’s and it hasn’t gotten much colder since.
This year has been a whirlwind. When I think back to where I was in January to where I am now, it is crazy. I am a nostalgic person, so when I sat down to write this blog post about all that has happened I got a little teary eyed.
Not to sound corny or lame (okay this is really sappy), but
