October Influencer Interview

Another month has gone by! October is officially coming to a close and I still can't believe it. College has been flying by to me and is definitely something I'm still adjusting to. Of course with the end of the month, comes my monthly influencer interview! I decided to interview Ashley M. from Dash of Social. We worked together for a bit and I absolutely loved her work ethic and passion for her company. This why she was perfect for my interview and I wanted to share it with y'all!

Please introduce yourself!
Hello everyone! My name is Ashley, and I’m a social media consultant at Dash of Social.

How did you get started in your business?
I was a blogger for two years before starting my business. I was able to grow my blog through social media, and because of its growth, I started working with companies to do sponsored content. I realized most of these companies barely had a social media presence or no social media presence at all, so I offered to help them out. I then got into freelancing, did that for two years, and officially established myself as a business in September 2016.

Who would you say would be your biggest motivator/inspiration?
My parents. They’ve known ever since I was little that I would be a business owner, and their confidence in me is what keeps me going.

What would you say is your goal for the next four years would be with your business?
Going full time! I graduate college in 2019, and I’m excited to say that I’m on the track to going full time with my business at that point.

For people who are wanting to start their own business, what would you say your biggest piece of advice would be?
Just do it. Every time you say you’ll get around to doing it, the chance of you actually doing it decreases.

What's something your readers don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know I’m still in college! They’re shocked when they find out because they always expect me to be older.

If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be and why?
My business coach, Taylor Manning! She’s amazing and incredibly successful.

Lips Blouse for Fall

Go-to Class Outfit

With Charleston still being hot, its hard for me to get motivated sometimes to get dressed in my normal clothes. It's so tempting to throw on a pair of shorts and a tee and walk out, but most of the time, I make it work. Denim shorts always haven't been my favorite thing (I'm personally more of a chino short gal) and never was something that I thought I would purchase. Earlier in the summer, my best friend got me to try on a pair, and I fell in love! These ones from J.Crew are super comfy and has a really easy going fit to them. I usually grab these along with a easy shirt and head to class!

Another favorite for classes is my backpack! I am obsessed with my Madeline and Company Slim backpack and get compliments constantly for it! If you want to get one of your own, use the code "SIMPLYSOPHIA" and get 15% off!

Rollneck Sweater's are Back

Fall is definitely in full swing, and I couldn't be more excited. Although here in Charleston it's not particularly cold (we are still in the mid-80's here), I'm still determined to make the most of it. I am thankful that I'm not in the hot sun much and are either are work in the air conditioning or in another building.

Sweaters are probably my most favorite part of fall and always manage to steal the most of my money in the season. I'm a sucker for feeling warm and love long sleeved garments. I spotted this sweater at work a couple of weeks ago and fell in love. I was really conflicted on which color to get between the white and the pink. I ended up changing my usual shopping habit and purchasing the pink and I'm in LOVE!
