Today’s #FearlessWoman is style blogger Shanna of Because Shanna Said So. I was immediately drawn to Shanna’s fashion-forward and relatable style, but as I started following her even more I found myself falling for her fun and down-to-earth personality. I also admire a woman who loves her husband and kids and Shanna definitely fits that to a tee!
Shanna has been blogging for a while now and although in her latest post she let us know that she’s taking a well needed blogging break, I still had to introduce her to you all because the content that is up and live is great. I appreciate her honesty in letting her readers know that it was time for her to take a timeout – I respect that and totally understand the need to take a breather here every now and then. Enjoy this interview and be sure to catch up on her latest posts; I’m sure you’ll be inspired!
What’s a typical day for Shanna?
Right now, because we are in the summer months, I am running around to different camps for my girls, having breakfast/lunch dates with my girlfriends in between, pool time, spending weekends with friends and family and squeezing in work/blogging. This is a busy time, but my favorite. I am enjoying every single crazy & chaotic moment.
What inspired you to create Because Shanna Said So?
One of my IRL life friends mentioned that I should start a blog four years ago to share my style and affordable finds. I truly started it on a whim and as hobby when I was still working full time in marketing. I am mostly self taught and have grown on my own by making friends in the blogging community.
Who are your top 3 women inspirations, famous or non-famous, and why?
My mother, grandmother and best friend from elementary school because each have distinct characteristics of being both nurturing and strong minded women. They have always been there for me and believed in me no matter what.
One piece of advice you have for women entrepreneurs?
There is a LOT of competition out there. Find your voice and believe in yourself. If you love what you do and stay humble things will work themselves out. Don’t give up if you have a passion. And remember, it does take money to make money.
What is your definition of a #FearlessWoman?
To not worry about what others will think and just be YOU!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I definitely don’t see myself still blogging. Hopefully, a full-time stay at home mom watching my girls excel in academics and sports. This “blog” world is short term. What matters most to me is my family and being mom.
How can we keep up with you?
