It’s Valentine’s Day. Stores are decked out in pink and red; flowers picked over; movie theatres packed. (Though we suspect that might be all the ladies eager to see 50 Shades on the big screen…)
Whether you look forward to this day of love or absolutely dread it, we can all agree on one thing: there are some One Woman Shops out there that are seriously worth crushing over.
This week, we opened the floor to our One Woman Shop members, giving them space to gush over the solopreneurs and boss ladies they admire most. Here’s what they said:
“We are the Treasure Hunters exists thanks to Marianne of Free Range Humans. She's the first person I found online several years ago who was championing creating a life and business, on your own terms, rather than needing to fit any pre-determined linear path. I was in the corporate world at the time and her stuff was illuminating. (It still is.)” - Sara Moss, @ispytreasure
“My crush this Valentine's Day is Regina of byRegina.com. I consume everything she reads, creates, and sells. Why? Because she puts her heart and soul into what she produces and is genuinely interested in helping others learn her process, tips, and ideas.” - Carrie Smith, @carefulcents
“Secondarily, my vote is for Steph Halligan of Art To Self. (Who's also my real life friend!) Her daily notes have inspired me to start up hand-lettering and give me a daily boost of motivation to love myself and my creative expression.” - Carrie Smith, @carefulcents
“I have two: XO Sarah, because her blog is helpful for developers/bloggers, she's a badass aerialist, and her Sunday Blog Love emails always have awesome links. Then Becky Kinkead because her design course is great, and she seems like someone who'd be fun to work with!” - Tiffany Breyne, @tiffdotcom
“Helene Scott is fabulous! She blows me away with the amount of value she provides - even just in her free training & YouTube Vlogs. She gives real & practical action steps that help you infuse YOU in your brand. I also have to add Hilary Rushford. She is so authentic and transparent when sharing tips for growing your Instagram following. (Editor's note: Put those into practice!) And, of course, all the dance parties are awesome.” - Julienne Mascellino DesJardins, @julmasdes
“I'm crushing fellow One Woman Shop member Brittany Berger. I love how her personality shines through her blog!” - Ebonie Townsend, @_ebtownsend
