let's get in her business INTRO!

hey girl hey

The day has FINALLY come & I have decided on a name for this new chapter of Salvaged Soul! 


'let's get in her business'


But not in the typical bitchy judgmental way, in a way that we all NEED it! To show our love, support & how much we believe in one another to MAKE SHIT HAPPEN as a women in business!

I want to create a place where the word EMPOWERMENT bleeds, a place where we won't feel alone at night in bed scrolling through all the happy BS while we're stressing out over not being able to make deadlines or how you're going to keep this business alive after a day of everything that could go wrong going wrong. A place to come read about relatable & REAL topics. We've all been there! No matter what phase you're in or going through. Starting a business is hard but running a business is way HARDER. Like way way harder. Especially when you add the dynamic of a husband, children, family, friends, life. The bottom line this we are doing what we love but don't always love what we are doing. If that makes any sense? But at the end of the day we know we are doing what we were put on God's green earth to do. And THAT my friends is why we need each other!


So basically, every week I am going to feature a badass boss babe on my blog. Some weeks it will be a high profile celebrity & some weeks it will be someone you've probably never heard, but obvi should. I will write up a rundown on them, their business, & how they inspire me. There will also be a q&a with each girl, a very beneficial and relatable q&a! 

WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE FEATURED?

I want to give you guys a little back story on me but I will elaborate on a blog post about myself and business later!

How did I start Salvaged Soul?

The short answer to this is...... Well, I just went with it. It was a passion right from the get go. I started DIYing wood framed mirrors. They were selling like hot cakes. SCORE! I had a client ask me if I could make her an end table. Guess what my answer was! "ABSOLUTELY!". Because what did I have to lose? If it turned out like shit I would just give her her money back and call it a day. Well, it turned out AMAZING. I was able to do something with my two hands (don't get an 8th grade thought with that one LOL) that I never thought I could. I will say one MAJOR thing to always remember is YOU CAN DO IT! When YOU believe in YOU, so will everyone else. Passion is contagious & people want to be part of it. Whether it's supporting you or being inspired by you. Anyways, from there the rest was history. Fast forward 4 years & there is not a single piece of furniture I haven't built.

How do I balance being a mom, wife, & business owner?

I don't. I am very aware of the fact that it's nearly impossible & that is exactly why I have no expectations of myself & the word or term "balance". I have accepted the fact that some nights my sink will be overflowing with dishes when I got to bed, my kids will eat their breakfast in the truck on the way to school while doing their homework, & I won't be able to commit to a schedule of any sort because I am running a motha f*ckin business. Balance comes from within, it's not a "real" thing, its in your head. YOU create your own BALANCE. It's not comparable to the "stay home mom" who get's to make mickey mouse pancakes every morning & has dinner on the table at 5. We are a different breed ladies & we are making the world a BETTER place one business at a time! So cheers to that! 


Stay tuned for my first feature on TAMRA JUDGE!


good vibes forever + ever

Intro of 'RIOT Social Club'

Introducing

Riot logi.jpg

I am beyond thrilled to share with all of you the newest addition to Salvaged Soul.

RIOT Social Club is next level. It is something that is not out there yet. I know that because until now there was nothing created by us. Two striving mothers and female entrepreneurs wanting to give opportunity to others in our shoes. I know I tend to rant but I wouldn't be me if I didn't. I want to give you guys a little background on how this idea came about. 

Erica of EP Design House and I started working together several months ago when I hired her to rebrand Salvaged Soul, I needed to show more of me through my logo, website, ect. She was ON POINT. Her work ethic was just as great as the designs she was creating for me. Always very responsive and anyone who knows me knows I am available. All. The. Time. So it's important when I am working with someone they are too. It's a part of business, especially if you are one to put your heart and soul into something you're building for yourself and your family. NEVER miss a beat. She never missed a beat. 

After working together on a couple more collaborations I felt like Erica got me. ||#soulsisters|| We could throw ideas back and forth about everything from our own businesses to other businesses we felt would do so great working together or could use our advice or input. Not in an insulting critiquing way but in more of a helpful way. We had been talking for months about putting together a group where woman can connect and leave with more than just a fun day. We would have up-and-coming female entrepreneurs connect with our RIOT Girl  the most influential and inspiring woman in the nation.  Also, somewhere to create collaborations. And so it was that 'RIOT Social Club' would be born.

||CONNECT|| On top of hard work and dedication I strongly feel my constant push to connect with other woman has allowed me to build the clientele I have. Going all the way back to my business being less than a year old when I wrote into the 'Bethenny Show', had I not put myself out there and risked rejection I don't know if Salvaged Soul would be where it is today.  

||CREATE|| Always be you. Allow yourself to go off the trail sometimes and be creative. Do what fuels your fire, I promise it will show through. 

||COLLABORATE|| This might be the all time key to success. I'd dare to bet on it. It's a win win win! Sometimes you have to give in order to receive. What I mean by that is when you're building a business networking and collaborating will put you on a platform and provide not only a great experience working with fellow entrepreneurs but it's marketing in the most effective way.   

 

We will be holding our first social on an invitational base for the kickoff. Thereafter we will have a limited number of tickets that can be purchased prior to the event date.

Stay tuned....
