Episode 48: Jill Gott-Gleason

Jill Gott-Gleason joins me for Episode 48. I can't remember how I stumbled upon Jill, but I about 6 or 7 years ago I found her blog--Good Life For Less. She was one of the first fashion bloggers that I followed. I have always loved that she is like the everyday girl. Her content is always practical and helpful--she's not suggesting that I purchase a pair of shoes for $2000. In addition to being a blogger, she is a wife and mom to two tweens.

We talk about where fashion and faith intersect; she gives practical fashion tips for the winter season; and how to handle social media. And if you do any type of business online, you definitely want to hear her 7 tips on how to grow your business in the nooks & crannys of life. So, pull up a chair and join us at the table.

I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Jill. Do you ever meet someone and you immediately feel like you could hang all the time with them? I felt that way about Jill. I love how down to earth she is. Not only does she have great fashion sense, but she is so helpful in passing on what she's learned about growing an online business and platform. Her tips on how to grow your business in the nooks and crannies of life was definitely one of my favorite parts. I'm going to implement some of those for sure.
