Change is NOT a bad thing- BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

My personality makes me apprehensive to change. I want something to be the same literally forever. As I learn more about life, business and success I know that change is inevitable. Part of the responsibility of being called to help others is trusting God when He has opened the door to something new. As many of you know, Indy has been our home for the past few years. We started here, we grew here, we definitely learned here. We are starting to grow out of our store fronts, our online store is booming, and our brand is really taking off. We want to grow our clothing line for Mercy Multiplied, who we've been able to give over $10,000 to, from our...

How to Plan Outfits for Family Photos

We just had family photos done for the first time in a long time. This time of year when the leaves are colorful, and the air is brisk, is our busiest time of the entire year. It's also the time everyone thinks to take family photos. After the last few years of helping other families that came into our store, pick out their family photo outfits, I thought it was well overdue that we have some done of our own! 1) Don't pick a color scheme first.

How to Start a Boutique- PART 3

Creating a sustainable brand and image behind your business. This I personally believe is one of the most important aspects of creating a long term, quality business.  1) You must have a name that is not like everyone else's. I truly hope nobody takes this the wrong way. Please stop naming your business your first and middle name, your kids name, your dogs name. I think maybe a few might get offended by this- because so many people do this. I am only here to help. No judgment. I think your name needs to tell a story. Now, some boutique names that are a combination of grandma who loved to sew, and taught you how, so you combined it with...

Affirmations for when you're getting through a hard time

God is in control. I am the type of person that likes to be in control. I don't like to delegate. I would rather do everything 100% correctly, than save my energy and have someone else do something 90% correctly.  My husband, Matt is quite the opposite. We are a perfect match because of this.

Seems impossible doesn't it? It's not. Consider Matthew 6: 25-26 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat...
