Hi! I'm Julie Blanner!

For years I felt like I couldn't keep up. I was drowning in to do lists, stressed out, overworked, overwhelmed and wondering if it was all worth it.

I spent so many late nights creating content and yet struggled to increase revenue.

In frustration, I would break down in tears, yell at the kids when I needed 5 more minutes and for what? I started this business so I could set my own schedule, balancing family and work, and have a creative outlet while generating an income.

I stopped, analyzed and made a shift in business that changed my life. I hope it changes yours, too!

I'm calmer, happier, spend weekends and summers off with my family and am earning more than ever!

What would your life look like if you could...

Earn an income while staying home with your kids?

Generate enough revenue for your spouse to stay home or work with you?

Spend less time making more?

Make six figures sharing your passion with others?

Julie has been a huge source of knowledge for me as a blogger. I've been doing it over a decade, and I feel like I know most of the nuances. Where Julie truly stands out as a mentor is that she teaches others their value! Honestly, she's been a breath of fresh air sharing her knowledge of the business side of blogging. I've been able to grow my income from my side hustle as a blogger two fold through the knowledge I've learned from her over the years. She came into my life when I was desperately searching for how to grow my hobby to a full-fledged business. Her insight, wisdom and openness to sharing and educating others has been a breath of fresh air.

Julie is not only a wonderful teacher but is so honest and forthcoming with information. She takes blogging seriously - not just from the creative side of things but seriously as a real business. I've learned so much valuable information from her that has completely shifted my mindset when it comes to my own blog and business. She has taught me how to respect and protect my work, where to focus my efforts, how to play on my own personal strengths and most importantly, how to grow my business. I can't thank Julie enough for sharing her knowledge and enabling me to grow as a small business owner.
