Building Household: The Perks of Identifying Your Dream Client

July 12, 2018

Last week we sat down and answered a series of questions to help each of us identify our dream clients.

Seeing through our dream clients lens makes things much more simple and we are getting into the nitty gritty on all of it on this episode (+ we recorded it live)!

My Top Ten Influencer Resources

July 9, 2018

Social media, blogging, working with brands and being an influencer in general often times feels like the wild west. There’s SO much information out there when it comes to what to post, when to post, what to talk about, what not to talk about and how to better curate your brand that I know I at least feel overwhelmed all the time.

I’ve always loved sharing my personal insights with you guys and the articles I find beneficial, but I figured I would put together ten of my all time favorite influencer resources. These are the podcasts, creators, methods and mentors that I look to when I personally need guidance on building my brand and thinking about the bigger picture when it comes to my business.

July 3, 2018

Building Household: Social Media & Mental Health

June 13, 2018

After last week’s devastating news about Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade each taking their lives, we felt like it was really important to take the time to sit down and discuss social media, mental health and how we can all attempt to keep things in perspective on this episode of Building Household with Hailey & Amy. We chat a lot about each of our whys’, staying authentic, finding happiness outside of material success and the ways in which we can make social media a positive place and encourage each other to seek help when it’s needed.

One Goal I’m Convinced Will Change My Business for the Better

May 29, 2018

This post was sponsored by Intuit Quickbooks.

Lately, I’ve caught myself really taking the success of this little business of mine for granted. We live in a culture that constantly pushes for more of this or more of that. More money, more clients, more followers, more likes, more recognition, but I’ve been making an effort to take a step back and express gratitude for just how far I’ve come and the ways this business has truly changed my life.


Ten Podcasts to Get You Out of Your Funk

May 28, 2018

If you’re an avid listener to either Building Household with Hailey & Amy or Mom and Dad Made a Podcast you know we skipped releasing episodes last week. Sorry guys! We ended up making our way to Rhode Island last Monday to meet and snuggle two of our friend’s newborn baby, introduce Owen to some of Zack’s extended family and eat all the traditional New England foods we could. Needless to say it was a much needed little getaway and a chance to breath in some fresh air in the midst of what feels like a crazy and busy time for us. Regardless of our hectic days, I’m feeling extra grateful that our schedules allow us the flexibility to do trips like this.

Best Practices from the Pinterest Team (+ a new episode from Building Household)

May 15, 2018

After three of the busiest weeks I’ve had in a long time I’m finally taking the time to sit down, on a Saturday night (mom life), and truly process everything everything I’ve learned. You see, a few weeks ago I had the chance to fly to San Francisco and visit the Pinterest headquarters to teach employees at their annual conference, Knit Con. I know, my jaw is still on the floor.
