Hi. I'm Samantha.
I'm a freelance writer and blogger. I live just north of San Diego with my husband, two kids, and our crazy dog.
What else should you know about me?
- I'm a lifelong booknerd. Give me a book, and I'm a happy camper.
- I love Jesus, coffee, and cupcakes... and tacos.
- I can't resist a disaster movie. The less realistic, the better.
- Monday is my favorite day of the week.

Empowering Female Entrepreneurs
Why is this important to me? Because I'm raising one.
Not only am I a female business owner (which I never expected to be by the way,) but my daughter already exhibits that entrepreneurial spirit at age 10. I want her to be able to envision a future where she can create and thrive in whatever capacity she chooses.
A little bit of backstory...
I never intended to get into business. In fact, I graduated from college with a B.A. in Religion. Yes, you read that right.
After college, I worked in youth ministry for a few years, but it just wasn't the right fit. I moved home, found a job, moved to San Diego, and found another job. Soon after, I met my husband. When our daughter was born, I left my office job to stay home full time. It wasn't long before I started a blog chronicling the ridiculous shenanigans that go hand in hand with parenting. I'd always loved writing, and blogging was the creative outlet I needed in the midst of diaper changes and midnight feedings.
When both kids were in school full time, I started writing more regularly on my blog. I sort of fell into freelance writing because not only do I enjoy it, but it allows me to use my skills and work from home. I was listening to a lot of business and marketing podcasts and sharing what I learned with my husband, who works for a growing start-up. One night he looked at me and said, "I think you should start a business." I was floored.
I had been thinking the very same thing, but hadn't mustered the courage to voice my big dreams out loud. I felt unqualified because I had exactly zero experience in business. But the more I researched and considered it, the more I realized that this isn't a reason to ignore this opportunity. It's a reason to go after it and push myself to believe that I can succeed. This drive is also what makes me so enthusiastic about helping other entrepreneurs build their dream businesses.
