Gratituesday: The Interns

This is my first semester having interns on board with me and I am kicking myself for not doing it earlier. Chelsea and Becker both have so much passion for their work - as most artists do. They are excited about working for me and get as excited about the successes of my business as I do! Plus they are uber-talented and we have a lot of interests in common. I love having them around! However, I wanted to take a minute and clear the air about a few things.


Chelsea, my PR intern, is my social media guru! She does a lot of clicking around (pinning on the business pinterest account (I do also have a personal account), following people on pinterest and twitter, and reviewing my stats), but she never says anything. Anything that has been posted, tweeted, retweeted, or shared - it all comes from me.

My fingers, my heart.

Everything on my blog? Written by me.

Yes, I have had my interns write blog posts - for the mere practice of doing so. Some of the blog posts are too good not to share - so I will share them in the future. But, don't worry, you will know when I post blogs written by someone else. And they will be few and far between.

Becker, my graphic design intern, has been working on graphic design projects behind the scenes. If her work is ever shared - you will know that it is her work.

I want to be as transparent as possible with you all.

Having interns on board has absolutely been worth my time and effort and I hope working with me has been a great experience so far for each of them. We still have months left of our time together, but I am already so grateful for their contributions to this business!

So this week... I am so, so happy to have interns on my team! They are helping me in more ways than they know!
