A few months ago I decided that if I was going to be spending so much time on social media all the time (I don’t even think I can call it a guilty pleasure anymore-I’m thinking hobby works best) that I may as well make it worth my time.

I filled my feed to the brim with positive accounts that inspired me to find my passion, follow my goals, and truly live a beautiful life.

What I found was three genuine accounts that in different ways inspire me daily to stay true to myself, to take action on things that I’m passionate about, and to be a badass along the way.

Here’s the scoop:



I remember when Eric and her show first came out on E! and immediately I was hooked. Jessie is this hot, sassy southern girl that is so genuinely herself that it makes me insanely happy. It’s from watching her show and following her for at least a year and a half now on Instagram that I have realized what it takes to really get what you want out of life-being yourself.

There’s something so addictive about a person who is unapologetically who they are and I think that that’s where Jessie has created her army of loyal followers (myself included). She’s definitely a cool mom and if you haven’t googled her husband Eric Decker yet, well-you better prepare yourself.

The best part? Jessie is a singer songwriter still trying to get noticed in the country community. Following her journey to become the singer, performer, and artist that she is so destined to become has made me fall in love with her day in and day out. There’s nothing like watching someone else go big for their dreams as you simultaneously chase yours.

Here’s what I love about Danielle Bernstein (creator of epic, fashion blog We Wore What). She was one of the firsts. She started a fashion blog way back in the day when fashion blogs weren’t that big of a deal. Before social media, before all of this crazy Danielle was just living her passion and more than likely making $0.00 to do so (big difference from her current approx. mid six figure salary).

You know it’s meant to be when your passionate hobby becomes your well to do business that makes it so you never work a day in your life. I love following her journey, continuing to watch her grow, and hoping to one day be living a similar life!

Mimi is a beautiful soul with the charisma of a badass business woman. Mimi and her husband have created epic brands that allow them to live a very good life in London. They started from nothing, built their way here, and are now sharing their story with anyone that will listen.

Despite being the owner of a few business, Mimi is so grounded and down to earth and shows her followers daily that there is so much beauty in the little things. I love seeing people that could have more, choose to spend their money only on things that feed their soul and not their ego. That’s a beautiful way to live and an inspiring one at that.

These women are all empowering, they are all under thirty, and they are all KILLING IT. They have all found their passions and have pursued them to the point of success. Now it’s time to ask ourselves, “If them…why not me?”

Just as I do, you too have the same capabilities that these women have to find what it is that makes your heart tick and to go for it. Following their journeys has been a catapult for me to go for my dreams. If they can do it, so can I and so can you.

So what are we waiting for?
