Sharing a big life change today! After dreaming up, building, launching, and ultimately selling @LEAFtv, today officially marks the end of an era. A decade of hard work has come to an end and I couldn't be more proud of all @ErinFalconer and I have accomplished. In 2009 we built out a business plan, raised a million bucks, launched our company, and in the summer of 2015 we sold it to a publicly-traded company that would go on to change their name to Leaf Group. It has been a wild learning experience, complete with failures and successes, ups and downs, tears and cheers, and SO many how-to videos (over a thousand to be exact). We built shoppable video technology, sold monthly subscription boxes, garnered a YouTube community, went live on HSN, partnered with dozens of epic Fortune 500 companies and influencers, and managed to grow a website of over 10 million uniques per month. THANK YOU to all of you who read, loved, and watched us over the years. Parting with LEAF is bittersweet but mostly sweet. I dreamed up the idea in college, and getting to live out that dream has been, well, a dream come true. As for what's next? In an ironic twist, I'm officially a full-time blogger for the first time ever! How about that?! I started my blog, because I'm addicted, in 2005, but have had a full-time job every step of the way, including LEAF, until today. New beginnings start now! I hope you join me on my new journey and thank you from the bottom of my LEAF girl heart to everyone who was part of my last chapter.
