ALLISON & LAURA - FEBRUARY '18
Hi Everyone! We are Allison & Laura, two co-workers turned friends turned co-bloggers! We met about five years ago working in the same department as Corporate Accountants, and realized we were both similar in values and work ethic. Ironically, we each had part-time jobs in our lifelong passions too. Discussing how we balanced our jobs and life made us close friends. Laura's side-hustle is being a US Figure Skating Coach, and Allison's is being a Dance Teacher. After years of discussing our lives and interests we wanted to take it to a grander scale and blog about it! We figured starting a Lifestyle Blog together could be a great passion project for the both of us, and we could inspire and meet so many other Boss Babes through it! We work a ton and really wanted to create something fun to enjoy in a world totally outside of the worlds we already knew: Finance, Dance & Skating.
We were most excited to launch the blog and start working with brands! When we launched we were looking into Blogger and Entrepreneur support groups to join, and we stumbled upon Tuesdays Together. Our local chapter leader just so happened to be the amazing photographer Jen Larsen, sister of GLC's co-founder Megan! GLC launched the same time our blog did, so we kept seeing many posts from her sister while falling in love with all the beautiful GLC products we saw. We knew we wanted to be GLC Ambassadors because their products and mindset aligned exactly with us and what our blog stands for.
To any new Ambassador, we would say make enjoying what you do first and foremost. Keep your passions separate from your chores. Don't put too much pressure on yourself or take yourself too seriously; have fun with what you do so it never becomes "work." Be creative and embrace the journey (because it can be long and unpredictable). People connect with honesty, so don't feel the need to always be perfect or do exactly what everyone else seems to be doing. Be yourself, be proud, and smile :)
