“I’m just wondering how to get started.” A valid thing to wonder… however…
Do not get so caught up in the “right” way to start something that you don’t start at all. How to get started is one of the biggest questions I get. PLEASE remember what you see here is a result of 12 years in the outdoor industry, 5 years of blogging, and plenty of doubt, side jobs, and questions just like yours. The thing is, getting advice from folks who do what you want to do will only matter to your life if you actually apply it.
Sometimes I think people want a blueprint or an easy answer so that they don’t have to work for it. 👀
If you really want formula, mine is QUALITY + CONSISTENCY OVER TIME + DRIVE. But that is as specific as I can get for you. There are COUNTLESS ways to get your foot in the door in any industry. PICK ONE and see how it works. If it doesn’t work, doesn’t teach you something, or doesn’t feel good, change the plan. If it works well, keep doing it.
Figuring it out is HARD! Uncertainty is hard. Making your own path is hard. So find mentors, yes, but know that they’re never going to spoon feed you step-by-step directions, as if they have the recipe for your future. 🔮
What I know for sure is that there’s no one way to get where you think you want to be. If you do choose the path, and head down it for a while, you’ll eventually have people reaching out to you asking you how to start… and you’ll realize that you never needed a concrete or specific answer at all. ✔️

Yes!! I’ve had so many people ask me what’s the easiest and fastest way to get to do the work I do. After 12 years in my field and multiple degrees I don’t really have an answer for that. It feels insulting tbh
Thank you for this! 🌷
Keep at it, Girl! So proud of you!
Liking the narrative...🤗👊
👏and everybody is different, so everybody will have his path and answers
Great advice. Thank you.
As someone trying to break into this kind of industry...thank you. These were words I needed to hear. Always appreciate your account and your words.
Omg I’m the queen of getting advice and then just hoping it’ll magically action itself 🙈 needed to hear this today, THANK YOU!
Really, well done for this caption! We live in a time that people find quick pseudo success through reality shows and we all need to be reminded that hard work is an essential part of creating something real. 👍🙂
I struggle with consistency! I have so many great ideas. I’ll start and then never follow through! 😫 This encourages me to do better!
Sooooo true ♥️
