The Power of Business Friends (& Great Fashion)

When you’re building a business, there are SOOOO many options for ways to invest in your growth – both financially & with your time. It can be hard to decipher which options will pay the most dividends in the long-run, & which ones will give you the kind of education that will really & truly help propel your business forward.

I think you have to know what you’re looking for & be able to recognize what your business really needs (new software, educational courses, products, design, etc.) in order to determine which things to go for. But ultimately, there’s always going to be an element of chance that goes along with the hard work of implementing the lessons/systems/etc.

I am so thankful that I made the choice to invest in attending Thrive at the beginning of the year. Yes, I got some great education out of it, but more importantly, I got some amazing connections.

I was fortunate enough to meet Taryn at the pre-conference welcome party when she walked into the room in black sequin booties. She was full of confidence, grace, style & approachability all rolled into one, and within just a few minutes other conference attendees were convinced we were best friends.

Fast foward almost 7.5 months, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have Taryn in my life! As a fellow mom giving it her all to follow her passion & simultaneously fighting to keep her family as top priority, she has been such a great sounding board & source of support.

Taryn has an amazing style blog, Method39, offers personal closet consultations, can get you the perfect accessory for any outfit, & works with me on styling brand clients (like the amazing Bree Pair’s branding session – another Thrive connection)!

I was SO excited when Taryn reached out about getting some photos for some upcoming posts for her blog, and it just kept getting sweeter when we went back to where it all started –¬†The Westin at The Woodlands¬†where Thrive was held!

I have so many favorites from this style session, but I’m going to try my best to hold off from posting all of them so that I can let Taryn do what she does best over at Method39 – so be sure to head over there & follow along on social media to catch all the gorgeous details!
