The Story of Us

2013

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Start a lifestyle blog on Blogspot from my freshman dorm room. Download Photoshop Elements and start teaching myself how to create "logos" and other blog graphics. Take a lot of grainy photos of terrible early '10s fashion.

2014

FAKE IT TIL YOU MAKE IT

Rename blog to October June. Redesign Blogspot website about 52 times. Open an Etsy shop and start taking on design clients. Create first logo for a client for $50. Feel rich.

2015

MOVING ON UP

Make the switch to Wordpress and feel 10x more legit. Start getting really into Instagram. Learn a lot about social media strategy. Take on first few long term clients. Feel completely out of my depth (and love it).

2016

HELLO REAL WORLD

Accept marketing internship at my university (so long Starbucks!). Graduate from college. Move into big kid apartment. Start my first full time job and learn tons about marketing and social strategy.

2017

OMG SQUARESPACE

Discover Squarespace and instantly fall in love. Accidentally take on a couple new design clients. Do a lot of Googling.

2018

YEAR OF BIG RISKS

Move to Chicago. Reach 10k followers on Instagram. Rebrand to And She's Brave. Start a tee shirt company. Quit soul-sucking day job and start working for myself full time. Panic a lot. Work with several amazing clients. Relax a little.

2019

BRAVE GIRL RISING

File an official LLC. Move to a new apartment with a separate office. Work with dozens of incredible women-owned businesses. Start hiring contractors. Hit one year anniversary of going full-time. Feel like a boss ass bitch. Look at old logo designs to stay humble. Perfect the art of watching Netflix while working from home. Stay scrappy and hungry. What's next? The sky's the limit!

I started &SB out of my dorm room in 2013, first as a lifestyle blog. Wanting to have a beautiful website but being on a college student budget, I started teaching myself branding and web design. A few short years later I took on my first client and have only grown and evolved from there.
