Amanda Holstein Built A Life Off Blogging, She Shares Her Best Biz Tips. | VERITE WOMAN, Advice from a twenty something, Amanda Holstein, SF, Blogger, How to make a living off of blogging, Boss lady tips, how to start an online business, Photography, depression, mental health, how to deal with depression.When I first met Amanda Holstein she gave me advice on starting this little creative business here called Vérité Woman. Seems totally accurate for someone who has built blossoming career from a blog called Advice From a Twenty Something. It’s successful not just because she gives really, really good guidance, but due to her open book, hustlers mentality. She’s wise beyond her years in career, self-care, and internet-entrepeuneurship but the thing that makes her most approachable is she’s authentic in her “we’re all figuring it out”  approach. I wanted to share some of her nuggets of gold with you — whether you’re starting your own company, trying to get on top of those finances in 2018, or just love a good lady success story Amanda’s your go-to girl.

Vérité Woman: What were you doing career wise when you launched Advice From A Twenty Something?

Amanda Holstein: I was working for a media company/influencer network representing bloggers in the Women’s Lifestyle category. I actually had launched a different blog prior to Advice from a 20 Something when I first graduated from college. I was having trouble finding a career path I felt passionate about, so I launched that first blog simply as a creative outlet. That first blog introduced me to a whole new world and helped me land my job at the media company. From there, I was lucky enough to get to work with some of today’s most successful bloggers just as they were launching their careers (like Gal Meets Glam, The Everygirl, Design Sponge, sfgirlbybay, Glitter Guide, and many more). Getting an insider’s look at what made these blogs successful and what brands were looking for in a partner inspired me to launch Advice from a 20 Something with a more strategic plan in mind.

VW: What made you want to jump the 9-5 ship and go out on your own?

AH: The longer I worked for a 9-5 company while simultaneously running my blog, the more I realized how much more passionate I was about working on my own projects. I just didn’t feel that same passion for the job I was doing, even though it was very much related to my blog. I just loved the ownership of running my own website. The effort I put in was directly associated with the results, and I really loved that. I was also never a fan of the arbitrary expectations of working for a 9-5 company. Getting in at a certain time, staying at the same desk all day, and leaving late enough to show your commitment — I hated all of that. It didn’t inspire me or even allow me to do my best work.

VW: How did you know you were ready to go freelance?

AH: It’s funny because I always said my goal with my blog was never to go full time. But what I realized was that I was just afraid that if I went full time, I might fail. Once I realized that fear was the only thing holding me back from doing it, it was a total wake up call. I did not want to let fear control my life so I said f*ck it and decided to take the plunge. I did it slowly, first by working part-time at a startup and part-time on my blog. But eventually, it became more and more clear that my passion for my blog was growing and once I felt comfortable enough financially, I made the jump.

VW: What are your key tactics for being financially smart in your business and in your personal life?

AH: I would say being financially smart is always something I’m working on perfecting. But I do keep track of everything when it comes to my business in google spreadsheets and that helps a ton. Every campaign, when it’s paid, etc. Keeping this type of data is helpful in so many ways. I can look back at see what I made this time last year and that helps me plan ahead, since income fluctuates monthly in the freelance world. Besides keeping track of everything, I really take the time to think about where I want to spend my money and if it’s worthwhile. For example, the first year I went freelance I decided to spend my money on a photographer, The second year, I felt it was necessary to invest in a full redesign. Those decisions were definitely worthwhile, but only because I made them at the right time.

AH: I use Quickbooks and I absolutely love it! It’s super helpful for tracking my income & expenses. Getting a separate credit card for my business expenses was incredibly helpful as well because I could track all of my business purchases in one place.

VW: Are you a written calendar or phone calendar girl?

AH: Phone! Which is funny because I write everything down on paper — notes, lists, you name it. But when it comes to my calendar, I like the simplicity of using my phone.

VW: I know all too well that when you’re hustling your own endeavor you’ve got your hands in everything from content creation to the tiny admin details — how do you stay focused on the tasks at hand?

AH: That’s definitely something I’m constantly working on. It’s really about prioritizing and planning out what you’re going to work on each day. It’s so important to step back and see the bigger picture before deciding where to spend my time. One thing I’ve been trying recently is to assign each day of the week to a different category. So Monday’s I focus on social, Tuesday’s is blog content, Wednesday’s is all campaign focused, Thursday’s are for affiliate strategy, and Friday is reserved for admin stuff. Now I definitely don’t stick to this exclusively, but it’s a nice way to get my mind focused on my main priority that day.

VW: Tell us your favorite ways to decompress after a long week!

AH: Hiking! I’ve actually been starting my days off with a hike each morning, and it’s been such a great way to clear my mind. I’m also a huge napper and can’t resist a lazy Netflix day!Amanda Holstein Built A Life Off Blogging, She Shares Her Best Biz Tips. | VERITE WOMAN, Advice from a twenty something, Amanda Holstein, SF, Blogger, How to make a living off of blogging, Boss lady tips, how to start an online business, Photography, depression, mental health, how to deal with depression.

VW: What do you think of all this Millennial work ethic talk? Do you think the stereotypes ring true?

AH: I think there’s a pretty clear divide in that Millennials have gone in one of two ways. Some have seen influencers become wildly successful in a short amount of time and believe that success is instantaneous. I receive messages all the time asking how to monetize a blog that hasn’t even launched yet. However, I believe there is another group of Millennials who see the opportunity they have to create the career they want. I think seeing this wave of freelancers, startups, and and self-employed girl bosses has inspired many to go after what they want, knowing that it’s hard work and enjoying the grind.

VW: Are there any books that have changed the way you work/ think?

AH: Yes, for sure! I read The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life and that was super helpful in getting me to refocus on what’s truly important to me and to take some of the unnecessary pressure off of myself. I also really enjoy Jess Lively’s Podcast, The Lively Show. She talks a lot about living in alignment and listening to your intuition. I highly recommend it! To be honest, the biggest thing that has changed the way I work/think is therapy. It’s one of those experiences that can’t be replaced by books or podcasts and can have long-term effects on the way you think and live your life.Amanda Holstein Built A Life Off Blogging, She Shares Her Best Biz Tips. | VERITE WOMAN, Advice from a twenty something, Amanda Holstein, SF, Blogger, How to make a living off of blogging, Boss lady tips, how to start an online business, Photography, depression, mental health, how to deal with depression.

VW: You’ve been candid and transparent with your followers about your struggle with depression — your openness to talk about it was beneficial for me and I’m sure so many others — and I’m wondering how you keep focused and moving forward when you’re feeling bouts of anxiety, or depression?

AH: Dealing with depression while owning our own business is definitely not easy, but what I’ve learned is to try and show myself some compassion. Rather than getting down on myself about not being productive when I’m already feeling depressed, I try to just wait it out and give myself a break. I know I’m not going to do my best work when I’m in a depressed state. My head gets cloudy, that negative voice gets really strong, and it’s just not worth struggling through those feelings just to get some work done. I try to remind myself that my health needs to come first, and mental health is part of that. I’ve also found that talking about my experience with depression openly with my readers has helped a lot. It not only makes me realize that I’m the only one putting the pressure on myself, but also reminds me that I’m definitely not alone in what I’m going through.Amanda Holstein Built A Life Off Blogging, She Shares Her Best Biz Tips. | VERITE WOMAN, Advice from a twenty something, Amanda Holstein, SF, Blogger, How to make a living off of blogging, Boss lady tips, how to start an online business, Photography, depression, mental health, how to deal with depression.

Editor Essentials | 12 Things That Are Clarifying Our New Year!

Editor Essentials | 12 Things That Are Clarifying Our New Year! NOW ON VERITE WOMAN, Vita Goods, Essential Oils, What does Bergamot essential oil do, what does cedar wood essential oil do, moonology, sunglasses, le labo, rose 31, alchemy of herbs, the power of now, elkhart tolle, ester perel, clarify, new year's resolutions, herbivore botanicals, dry winter skin treatments.With the best intentions you, me, and everyone else greet the new year readying to step into our higher selves. You would think as a cohesive collective it would make the transition seamless — however there are always a few bumps in the first month as we banish bad habits, and call in our best self. Personally, I’m pretty ready to embody my most Divine Feminine state and live my most cool, calm, collected life in the midst of creating content, and shipping Vérité Woman purchases. Let’s make this year a little easier, and keep each other accountable shall we? Here are my top 12 essentials for gaining clarity, and keeping my self-care on lock as I jump into 2018.

Vita Goods Cedarwood Essential Oil
Cedarwood is used to call in abundance, and for 2018 that’s sort of my thing. This essential oil has all kinds of practical uses as well, aside from smelling cozy, it aids with focus. It’s also an anti-inflammatory if you’ve been over-indulging over the holidays.

Vita Goods Bergamot Essential Oil
This beautiful scent goes with pretty much any other oil — it just seems to add a little extra life to any blend. However, it runs a whole lot deeper than just a good perfume high-note. This oil can work wonders for those finding themselves with some winter blues as a natural antidepressant. It can also be very useful if you find yourself with a seasonal cold as it fights congestion. I’m using it to energize my mornings as I set out for a happy, productive day.

Vérité Woman Sabina Sunglasses
Since I stocked these on the Vérité Woman shop, I haven’t stopped wearing these chic sunnies. It may not be the season, but it doesn’t matter — these beauties even look good on the slopes.

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
To gear up for a more focused, driven, and purposeful year I delved deep into Eckhart Tolle’s teachings. The Power of Now was suggested by a friend and could not have come at a more appropriate time. I realized I am plaguing myself by obsessing with the future, trying to set everything up for the unfolding of a perfect plan, stressing royally. The reality is the only time we can really be sure of is the moment we are in. I highly suggest this book for those who want to learn how to manage their obsessive thoughts, and owning self-fulfilling prophecies.  

Esther Perel’s Podcast Where Should We Begin
Esther Perel has long been a woman I admire greatly — so when I heard the relationship therapist had a new podcast out I couldn’t wait to binge. Only, I switched it on and was overwhelmed with all the feels. Emotions overload, this podcast touches on real people and the issues their marriages face — all common, relatable topics. It’s beautiful, and sad,  raw, and human. With warning, and a box of tissues I say go forth and learn a few things.

Health & Beauty Dead Sea Minerals – Powerful Cream – Olive & Honey 250ml
For years my mother has brought these products back from Tel Aviv with her — and during the holiday offers up the most luxe foot and hand massages with this olive and honey moisturizing cream. The smell is divine, and you’ll want to keep it close for bouts of winter dryness.

The Vérité Woman Aphrodite Hoops
The newest item on the shop is giving all the feels. The Aphrodite Hoops are the definition of a staple piece that any woman, at any age should own. More so, they are a token of worship to the goddess of love herself, and we could always use a bit of that on our side.

Moonology: Working with the Magic of Lunar Cycles
Ever since I realized my period was synched with the full moon I have felt an extra charge of power and curiosity to learn all things about the moon and our cycles. More so, just the moon and our lives. 

Alchemy of Herbs: Transform Everyday Ingredients into Foods and Remedies That Heal
I’m not much of a chef so there should be no surprise that in place of cookbooks I have this book. It’s a wonderful reference for healing, and creating on the spot! One of my resolutions was to learn much, much more about Herbalogy, this is my favorite place to re-learn the basics. 

Le Labo Rose 31 in 15ml
There’s nothing rose that I wouldn’t love, but this scent really does hit home.

Herbivore Botanicals – All Natural Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio
I use almost only clean ingredient products on my skin and hair, but there’s always room to grow! I’ve long been an avid user of Herbivore Botanicals, but when my lips go through stages of seriously Hollywood-makeup-frost-bitten-hiker I turn to this lip scrub. Seeing there was a set — almost too good to be true.

Two Two Shoes Vince Slide
I bought these slides on a whim and they have become high on my rotation ever since. They  add a refined, but playful element to any outfit!

Impossible? One might conclude so, yet Clē Cosmetics is proof that inclusivity does have a place in the beauty industry — the beauty line that embraces the rarity of you.

The formula to this come-one-come-all approach is not a marketing ploy, but a transparency — in the way they speak to their customers (educating on their clean ingredients) but also in the actual make-up of the makeup. With lightweight, sheer powders, mists, and pigments the Clē woman is not hiding who she is, but giving life to her inner whims through the products. No longer concealing freckles, but highlighting their existence through the Essence Moonlighter Cushion. Offering a coquettish kiss through the Melting Lip Powder — one that takes your natural lip hue, and brings it up a few watts. A Lifting Mist that just seems to take what you’ve already got and breathe new energy into it’s surface. Just soak up those product names: essence, melt, lift — they are words that don’t mask who you are, but seep into you, becoming one with the wearer.

When we asked Lauren Jin, the companies founder about what inspired Clē she was quick to remind us that “beauty is purely from the self.” Now let that sink in a little.

Our favorites from Clē:
Melting Lip Powder in Hot Chocolate + Milk Chocolate (shown above on cheeks and eyelids as well)
Essence Moonlighter Cushion in Copper Rose
Dry Mask Pack + Lifting Mist

11 French Girl Approved Products You Need To Buy Online! Now on VERITE WOMAN | French Girl Beauty, Skincare, Anti-aging, Hair care, Best Products, Drug Store Products, Paris Life, Parisienne, Bioderma, Nuxe, Hair oil, Skin oil, Avene, Klorane, Hair Care, Why do french women have such good skin, Classic, Thermal Water, Micellar Water, Natural Deodorant, Jeanne Damas, Louise Follain, French Icons Once a year I travel to France for an extended period of time. I’ve taken it upon myself to find the best beautifying products the country over that I can stuff into my carry-on and return home with, announcing with each bottle and tube “the Holy Grail of French beauty products”. Ironically, you hardly have to look further than the loved-by-all-including-me Monoprix. This is essentially the spot for all your needs from world-renowned 5 euro wine, to luxe yogurt, and of course beauty buys. It truly gives Disneyland a run for its money as the happiest place on earth. While we don’t have the luck of being graced with such an establishment in the USA, the internet is a magnificent place where in just a few clicks or our given links you can order the below imports. French Girl approved.

BIODERMA Sensibio H2O Micellar Water 16.7 fl oz

This will quickly become one of those products you simply can’t live without — trust me, it happened to me firsthand. Never a fan of those highly chemical, alcohol filled makeup removers, Bioderma’s H20 Micellar Water was exactly what I was searching very far and wide for. Who knew it was sitting on the shelves of the Monoprix this whole time. It breaks down even the toughest makeup, and wipes it off without extra tugging at those lashes! No need to wash it off after, you can just leave those delicious ingredients to soak in!

Huile Prodigieuse Multi Usage Dry Oil 100ml/3.3oz

Another life changer: Nuxe is a brand well loved, and passed down form grandmother, to mother, to chic French girl you follow on Instagram. I don’t think I’ve ever met a Francophile that doesn’t use Huile Prodigieuse. To tame frizzy hair and give it extra shine, or to hydrate skin — you’ll be savoring it like it’s a bottle of pure gold.

Marvis Whitening Mint Toothpaste, 3.8 ouncesA brilliant smile is another charm this country wields so well. Marvis is not only the chicest tube of toothpaste you could possibly grace your bathroom with, it also delivers what it promises.

Klorane Shampoo with Mango Butter – Dry Hair , 13.5 fl. oz.

Once finding myself in a small French town, sans shampoo and with a well-traveled matted do — I took refuge in the Pharmacy trying to find something to help me out. I just randomly grabbed a bottle of Klorane and am so glad I did! Doing further research this is well-loved by all Francophones, and Europeans alike! It’s hydrating, smells divine, and does the job when your Provincial French shower head doesn’t!

Eau Thermale Avène Rich Compensating Cream, 1.7 fl. oz.

Beret’s off to another cult favorite. This rich, moisturizing cream can be found in just about any Monoprix or Pharmacy, but don’t confuse it’s commonality for being low-grade. Avène’s secret ingredient is Thermal Spring Water which keeps Frenchie’s looking sprite and youthful even in the hottest summer months.

Eau Thermale Avène Cold Cream Lip Cream, 0.4 oz.

Another Avène treat is this lip cream that keeps mouths ready for French kissing at all times! It also contains that Thermal Spring Water that works wonders on dry derm. Save yourself from buying more products than needed and double this one up as an eye cream before bed!

Sanoflore Aluminium Salt-Free Deodorant 50Ml

Not able to pinpoint exactly what it is that makes French deodorant so much better than North American, Sanoflore seems to be the local choice. It doesn’t have any of those yucky ingredients like aluminum, and smells divine!11 French Girl Approved Products You Need To Buy Online!

NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm

Oh, you thought we were done with Nuxe? We’re never done. This lip cream can be a little pricey to get state-side but it is so incredibly worth the silky soft lips. Using this nightly helps eliminate the wrinkles that can appear around your lips if you partake in any of those Parisienne activities such as smoking cigarettes, or an influx of kissing!

Roge Cavailles Extra-Mild Superfatted Soap 250g

If you were to peek into any woman’s shower in France you would more than likely see a bar of this resting on her shelf. It’s non-drying, soft on the skin, and has a smell that’s nostalgic of those beauty addicts that came before!11 French Girl Approved Products You Need To Buy Online!

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Face Sunscreen, Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 60 with Antioxidants, 1.7 Fl. Oz.

Often topping the lists of best SPF, this face sunscreen is perfect for long days à la plage. Since daily sunscreen application is highly suggested, you’ll never find yourself without this one again!

Embryolisse Concentrated Lait Cream 75 ml
This luxurious cream may appear unassuming, however it brings so many purposes to your skincare routine. Use as a long lasting moisturizer, as a gentle makeup remover, or a protective hand cream for the girl on the go! This one is another classic that generations swear by!

NOW ON VERITE WOMAN, Recipe, DIY, Ayurvedic, Healthy Hot Chocolate, Guilt Free, Dessert, Treat, Herbs, Spices, Turmeric, Benefits of turmeric, benefits of cinnamon, holiday recipe, christmas recipe, thanksgiving recipe, skinny eating, clean eating.Inspired by the ancient medicinal studies of Ayurveda, this recipe takes some of these traditional key components to jump start your circulation, help your skin fight the change in temps, and soothe your busy mind.

Let’s break down just exactly why this recipe is so beneficial, shall we?

The reason this recipe is so delicious is because it’s cocoa based — duh! But did you know that cocoa can benefit brain function? Due to its ability to help with our circulatory system, it feeds blood to the brain assisting with memory and mental precision. Second, is the use of turmeric in this recipe. We’ve talked extensively about the benefits of this seasonly-hued spice. Turmeric also benefits circulation within our body, and with all that blood flow helps with the growth of our hair, nails, and the skin health. If you are prone to dull skin in the winter months — this is your go to! Next we’ve got honey, honey. Vérité has worshiped what this ingredient can do for your skincare regime, but what can it do for your insides? It’s a great source of anti-oxidants, keeping us energized and on point. It can also help with digestive issues (remember it’s a healing hot cocoa), because it’s overflowing with enzymes and good vitamins such as B complex. Then we’ve got the cinnamon and paprika, both delivering the warmth elements. Cinnamon can be extremely calming for those racing hearts and brains. If you suffer from anxiety, or PMS it can be your best friend at the end of a long day. Cinnamon (like turmeric) contains anti-inflammatory properties which can help you feel slimmer when slipping into that holiday dress, and can aid in de-puffing a post-thanksgiving face — bye, bye bloat!

So, without further ramblings follow these simple instructions to your new guilt free treat:

Ingredients:

1 Spoonful Cocoa Powder
1 Dash Freshly Ground Turmeric
1 Spoonful Raw Organic Honey
1 Dash Cinnamon
for a little extra heat, add a dash of paprika.

Combine all ingredients with boiling water in your favorite mug, mix, enjoy!
