This past weekend, I had the chance to make a quick trip to El Paso, to be a part of a Q + A for the She Styles podcast. I was so honored when Samantha, the owner of the beauty salon Ur New Image, and the founder of the She Styles podcast, reached out to me, asking if I would want to be featured on the show. I jumped at the chance, because, let’s be real, I could talk about the influencer industry all day long. Also, I love being a part of an industry where we all help each other out. Samantha is super inspiring because she has created a brand around not only her salon, but around women entrepreneurs and creatives, who collaborate and share their inspiration with others. The She Styles podcast is just one of the ways Samantha is creating a culture of creativity and collaboration in the El Paso area, and beyond.
The day started with brunch at Crave, followed by a cut and style by Samantha, at Ur New Image. The Q & A was next, where I got to meet a great group of local creatives. The day ended with drinks at Bricktown Tap House, before boarding the plane back to Austin. All in all, a quick, but very productive and inspiring day.
The podcast is centered around the topic of women entrepreneurs, and my business as a content creator. We cover everything from how I got started, to the difficulties of working in this industry, to how I find inspiration, along with some advice for people who are just starting out. Both the podcast, and the YouTube version of the Q & A are featured, below. Take a listen, and if there’s anything I didn’t cover that you would like to know, just comment below, or shoot me an email – would love to discuss!
