The Dumbass Guide to Being a Professional

I am literally amazed that some people make money at what they do. Seriously. I just sometimes wonder where people’s heads are at… my guess? Somewhere shoved tightly up their rump. So, here are some of the basics to not being an idiot, when it comes to owning your own business (this includes freelancers.) 1. […]

Half Way Progress Report – The Experiment

I have a little over one month left to complete my experiment. Again, for a reminder, here are the goals I set: In case you forgot what the goals were, I will re-list them. 1. To lose 30 lbs. 2. To book 3 paying modeling gigs. 3. To have performed on stage at least 5 times. […]

Go Big or Go Home – The Experiment

I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about loving your body, no matter the size. I’m a big candidate for self acceptance and confidence regardless of your size, looks, body type, etc. Sometimes this makes me feel like a hypocrite, because even with all the work I’ve done on building my own confidence, I sometimes lose […]

Balancing Act?

I am not the best at balancing out my life. For instance, I should be sleeping right now instead of posting a blog (this is really more of a cry for help today than a blog post). I have finally started to get used to the insanely sporatic sleep schedule that I’ve taken on. My […]

Modeling 101: Learning from Trial and Error

I did not have anyone coaching me on “how become a model.” A large portion of what I know has been learned through years of trial and error. Now, I don’t want to discredit the friends, and helpful people I’ve met in the industry who have given me tips, tricks, and advice, because I have […]

Dreaming Big and Paying Dues

I’ve had a few people send me messages asking me how to “get discovered.” Or ask me how to “Make it big modeling for Plus Size.” So, I decided to write a post about it. First of all, I’m a huge supporter of people who follow their dreams. I think the cliché that dreamers have […]

What Do You Fear?

I had a breakdown last night. I’m pretty calm most of the time, but yesterday I felt really overwhelmed. I didn’t have money for things I needed and I wasn’t sure how I was going to keep producing at the pace I’ve been at. Everything seemed impossible and I felt completely defeated. I called my […]
