I stumble upon a lot of talented and amazing creative entrepreneurs and wanted to share. These creative geniuses shared their creativity online, garnered a huge following and eventually monetized their passions in unique ways.

Megan became a creative director, Laura and her daughter, Joey got a book deal, Megan Hess sells her prints online, and Joy wrote books, collaborated with major brands and operates her own e-commerce store.

Mae Mae Co – Meagan’s flatlays and images are always on-point. I love how she mixes various elements (old and new, colorful and monochromatic, etc) to create relaxing yet chic vibe that’s having a moment right now.

And her story of how she became a creative director after building her own stationary brand is definitely worth a read if you are looking for career inspiration.

I don’t know what’s more unbelievable, the flying books, me levitating, the fact that I was outside today in a t-shirt or that we shot this while the builders were working in the garden (secretly watching and feeling slightly confused about it all). I’ve been reading a lot recently – or as much as someone who has kids and an addiction to TV boxsets can 🙊. And after hearing a lot of good stuff about it, I picked up one of Amelia’s books – ‘Here I Stand: Stories That Speak For Freedom’. It’s a collection of short stories and poems written by a variety of authors and aimed at teenagers covering issues such as suicide, racism, child abuse and LGBT rights. And wow, just wow. I urge you all to read it. For your kids to read it (11+, some of the stories can be quite shocking at times), and for everyone you know to read it. It’s thought-provoking, touching, intelligent, and simply superb. This is not an ad, by the way, I’m just *really* loving the book. I’m almost finished it though, so if you do have any recommendations for my next must-read, then let me know (with a brief description on what it’s about). BTS on my Stories.

All That is She – I love Dominique’s honest and direct tone in her writing. She doesn’t try hard to appear “polished” or “professional,” instead she’s an open-book and is willing to share her story without sugar-coating the messy details that is life. And you know what, her honest approach makes me love her even more!

Did I mention that she has an awesome IG feed? Make sure to take a gander here. Her creative takes makes you realize that there is no limit when it comes to creativity.

Lauraiz – It’s amazing how Laura was able to make her daughter, Joey, one of the most famous baby on the internet with her creativity. Her story of how she dressed up her daughter while she was sleeping is so touching and real that you love her even more.

I used to just follow her on IG and recently discovered her blog as I’m writing this post and that’s filled with useful nuggets of information!

Happy FRIDAY Everyone! Xxx

Megan Hess – I love Meagan’s signature fashion drawings and it’s been great to follow her career on the sidelines. Her whimsical yet sophisticated print was and still on my shopping list.

If you are looking for chic and fun drawings to lift your spirits, make sure to follow her IG.

Oh Joy – Joy’s bright, colorful and fun products are an instant pick-me-up when you are having a gloomy day. I didn’t know of her when she started out, but I have been following her collaborations with various national brands (think Target) and am happy to see her brand expand and grow.

If you are looking for affordable yet unique accessories, make sure to check out her shop, which now includes works from other designers.

These were some of my favorite creative entrepreneurs that built their own path that I admire. Who are your favorites and why do you like them? Please share in the comments below!
