Why being a "Hot Mess" works in my business!
"You're a hot mess!" Have you heard that? If so, trust me you're in GREAT company here! I'm going to show you how being labeled a "hot mess" has really been a ASSET to my business! Here's how I came to this conclusion!
Recently I had a comment on my page that caused me to evaluate what I do and how I present information.

"You're disorganized"- Um duh! Who doesn't know that?! Do you not think I struggle with that? I'm CREATIVE! Creatives are rarely organized!! I try!

But if you read my tutorials, my REAL blog tutorials. I'd beg to argue that they aren't well organized. Just have a looksy here.
SO, How did actually ADMITTING that I'm a hot mess, that I don
