* Being yourselfQUOTES BY TAYLOR
“There is really no rule book…as far as how you do something, or how you grow your brand or how you grow your community, or whatever it is your trying to do, there’s no rulebook, we kind of invent things as we go.” Taylor Bradford”Brands are flying by the seat of their pants because this is a new space for them and as far as traditional advertising and traditional media, they have a set process and whereas an online world, there is really not one yet.” Taylor Bradford
“The moment that you can just be honest with yourself that there is a potential for failure, and it’s okay to have those thoughts and feelings, I think you become more true and real to your readers, that your product and what you’re creating and what you’re putting out there in the world becomes better, because we are human. We’re not perfect.” Taylor Bradford
QUOTES BY HEATHER
“Honestly, the biggest obstacle is always myself, which is you know, I feel like typically the case, just when you’re trying to do something and you have so many creative people out there that are doing something similar…it can be really hard to not second guess yourself on every single thing that you do and so kind of getting over that, and getting over the hurdle of instead of trying to be like other people, just trying to take what you love about their style and apply it to my own style.” Heather Disarro
“This is an every growing, ever-changing industry. And it’s still kind of a baby industry at this point and so just as advertisers and third-party companies and ad networks kind of are always changing their policies and having to go with the ebb and flow of that, that’s always been another big obstacle.” Heather Disarro
“I had to get to a point where I was like ‘okay my time is worth this much money,’ and not just because it’s my time because now it’s my children’s time and my husband’s time and they deserve to have a mom and a wife who’s completely present when they are home and I can’t be that if I don’t be very selective with what I do. So I really only try to work with companies that I really believe in what they do, that they have a good reputation…” Heather Disarro
“To go from wishing I could get some free granola bars to making a full time income, I didn’t even put the two together.” Heather Disarro
“I’d rather know that I put it all on the table, rather than held back and I hope my boys see me, I hope they do see me fail and see me get back up again and do it different and try again, because I think that is one of the biggest life lessons I could ever teach them.” Heather Disarro
“You can look at other people and kind of gleam things that you really like from their work but, as far as aspiring to be exactly like somebody or to be the next somebody, you know it’s so much better if your just try to be yourself.” Heather Disarro
