Behind The Blog Scene: Anna Liesemeyer of In Honor Of Design

The blogosphere is a small world don't you think? Despite miles between us I have been so lucky to collaborate with bloggers and business around the world all of whom share my passion for empowering and inspiring others. It's been a mission of mine this year (and certainly will be a strong focus moving into next year) to keep providing tips, advice and content that aims to educate and motivate your inner business woman.

So it's only natural that I find myself gravitating toward other bloggers doing the same and working together to create a shared global vision of creating blogs and brands with heart. One of those bloggers is Anna Liesemeyer of In Honor of Design who is also the brain behind The Brand Market, a series of events in the US that I've long admired. We chatted about her blog, her tips for newbies and some of her personal biz highlights...I think you'll enjoy.

Best piece of advice to a newbie blogger?
Don't spend too much time on pinterest;) Sometimes we can let the comparison game beat out our creativity and motivation. Think about the WHY behind your blog, and seek inspiration outside of your phone or laptop. You will find the content will come with originality and passion.
