About the brands:



(#Likeaboss Stationary)

1.Tell us a little bit about your blog/business and how you got started?

Little Sprout Design was founded in my little college room my second to last semester! I always knew I wasn’t cut out to be in the corporate world and wanted to build my own foundation and business. I truly wanted to make something out of what I felt God chose for me. While most girls my age planned their degrees around their corporate futures, I began the process of starting a business. Little Sprout is a design firm that specializes in Wedding Stationery, Blog & Web Design, and creative styling. I have a passion for all of these things and love having a creative outlet as a career!

2. What do you enjoy most about what you do?

While I love working with young ladies who are engaged and seeing their smiles when I pass over their stationery or entrepreneurs themselves who are looking to build their brand, I strive to give back to women who are setting their lives apart from the “expectation” of our generation. I want to help people go after their calling that God chose for them! Helping people has always been a huge passion and whether it’s just simple advice on a brand, wedding stationery, or launching a blog- I love the feeling of watching someone else excited over my work!

3. What is your advice for other entrepreneurs and small business owners?

The best advice I have ever heard for running a business is to always do it for a purpose and not for perfection. I heard this is a Lara Casey video and it just hit me! At the time I was trying to hard to be perfect for my clients and the passion fell between the cracks. Since I heard this awhile back I haven’t had another day like it! I love what I do and knowing their is other women out there too living their passion is just the best!

1.Tell us a little bit about your blog/business and how you got started?

My blog is the Little Black Blog, personal style blog sharing affordable, dashing and classic ways to keep you sparkling no matter the occasion. I started it about four years ago while I was in college, but really started dedicating more time to improving it over the past year. Along with that, I also started an Etsy shop where I sell graphic design prints. One of the first reasons I started my blog was to mix my love of fashion with graphic design. I’m excited to have finally opened a little Etsy shop to really share my design skills, too.

2. What do you enjoy most about what you do?
I love the networking and connections that comes with blogging and having an Etsy shop. The Chicago and Midwest blogging community are filled with other amazing woman who are inviting, inspiriting and great ladies to be around! I’ve made some great friend just in the past year through doing both.
3. What is your advice for other entrepreneurs and small business owners?
My advice is to do it because you love it not because you want to get some where. Many times I see bloggers who just want to become “popular” or make money, but don’t realize you have to be so much more invested. It’s important to remember why you started your blog or business – probably because you love doing it. You’ll be surprised all the amazing things your blog or business can turn in to with genuine love and effort.
Thank you Rocksbox, Little Sprout Design and Little Black Blog for your generous giveaways!
