our first podcast!
I was on a podcast on May 30th with Todd Collins of - @toddcollinsofficial - talking about female friendship, social media, entrepreneurship, working with your spouse, owning a business, and in between all of that you can catch my anxiety laugh and so much more!
I was really nervous about putting myself out there on such a personal level; but I really feel like this was a great bouncing board for more really awesome opportunities!
If you do take the time out to listen, I would love it if you gave me some feedback!!! If you like what you heard and want to do a podcast with Bmore Babes, hit us up here!

my first tv appearance ever!!!
My very first TV appearance 📺 ever was filmed on Monday for @bmorelifestyletv and omg was I nervous as ever 🙈. It took a lot of courage for me to go there, put myself out there, with this thing that I've been working on and towards for so long. What if people don't like me? What if I stutter and have a panic attack? What if I have deodorant on my shirt? What if I say the wrong date of our event?!?!?? 🌀
the. nerves. were. real. Josh was the most amazing ever. ❤️ He cried. He smiled. He held my hand. All morning he kept saying over and over again how excited he was to "get to be me" and to take my picture 📸 and to get to be my cheerleader. He was so excited the whole entire time. He hyped me up and cheered me on and celebrated me and god, I'm just the luckiest gal in the world. ☺️
I've been craving a #Girlboss community in Baltimore for years and to finally have one, and to be spearheading it is just surreal.
A close friend sent me this text before I went on:
"...and nerves are totally ok. It means you’re taking this shit seriously. So take it as a sign that you know the value of where you are and the opportunity this is. You are there bc you deserve it, you earned it and you belong there." 😭❤️✨ ya know what. I DO DESERVE IT!!!!!
When you succeed, you notice who is clapping, 👏🏻 and who isn't. But man- this has been THE MOST rewarding experience ever. To everyone who sent me a message and said you were proud of me - thank you. 💖 It means so much more than you'll ever know. To all the bad ass Bmore Babes I have met over the last 6 months, thank you for inspiring me, and further reinstating everyday that #bmorebabes has a place in this city. I love y'all. ✨
