Hi Beth! What’s the name of your blog.
Where are you from?
Tell us a little bit more about you and your blog, Sassy for Short.
I am a short, sassy midlife influencer. I helped women build their wardrobes for over ten years through a direct sales company. My clients included a wide variety of women, from stay-at-home mothers who loved beautiful clothing and had the budget to indulge in it, to entrepreneurs and executives from some of Atlanta’s largest companies. I love working with women from very diverse backgrounds. When we would meet to shop together in my home trunk shows a few times a year, we would talk about all sorts of things that were a part of our lives. My blog Sassy for Short (SASforShort) grew out of that.
Today on my blog I share tidbits about things that I love. It could be about fashion, healthy lifestyles, working out, my favorite new recipe, etc.
Give us your best tip for staying on top of the blog/work/life balance?
