In an effort to empower you, our readers and fellow creative souls, we would like to welcome you to the Blogosphere’s version of the Master Class. Just like Oprah’s Master Class on OWN, but for Bloggers.

What is Oprah’s Master Class on OWN?

It’s a biography series that shares hard-won insight from extraordinary achievers whose paths have inspired Oprah—and countless others.  There are always 3-5 lessons that viewers can take away from their shared experiences and it is truly inspiring and empowering.  We are hoping to do the same here on Tip Junkie by featuring successful bloggers.

We will be regularly featuring inspiring bloggers who have found success and fulfillment through their online endeavors. Join us and find yourself empowered through their words of wisdom.

What do you think every new blogger/Mom-preneur should know?

Stay true to yourself don’t let bigger bloggers tell you how you should run your own blog. Not everyone blogs for the same reasons. Do something your passionate about.


What have you learned in the past 12 months that’s a “game changer” for your blog or business?


Blog what I’m passionate about and don’t worry about what everyone else is doing. Sometimes you can lose sight on why you are doing what you are doing and consume yourself by worrying about what everyone else is doing.

Also I constantly ask myself what can I do to help another blogger? I find helping others only comes back 10 fold. It’s a great way to make lasting relationships. We all had to start somewhere right?

What aspect of social media is most effective for you? And why? Can you share a tip or secret how you use it to work for you so well?
What’s the one thing that you make sure you do everyday for your blog or business.


THANK MY READERS! Without them I would not have a blog. I also try to hold conversations and try to get to know my readers. I am signed up both twitter and Facebook to give my readers more options to read my blog.


What part of your blog/business are you most passionate about right now? And why?

Helping people save money. It’s a ministry for me. Knowing your helping people who are struggling just gives you a warm fuzzy feeling. I feel like God has given me a great talent to share with the world.
