Hi friend! We are Erika & Lindsey and we're #oftenambitious.
This podcast and brand was born out of a friendship that was forged in a lonely, yet hopeful, place. We've both been misunderstood for our ambition a time or two... and maybe you have been there as well? We're guessing that's the case. So here's the short story. We hope it inspires you to be a #oftenambitious.
THE STORY IN THE NAME
We believe an ambitious woman is something to celebrate - yet we didn't name the podcast and blog "Always Ambitious". Why? Because we'd be lying to you if we said we always felt 100% on our game. In fact, there are days where we don't feel it at all.
So in a world where women are expected to be "effortless" and perfect - we are embracing every single imperfection. And we are declaring that we can be ambitious and imperfect synonymously.
So there you have it, this is why we are often ambitious.
Talking about yourself can feel strange sometimes, but I think we ought to get to know each other. First off, I'm a wife, a believer in Jesus, a dog-mom to two rescue pitbulls, a skincare freak, and a Mexican food addict. I'm actually fluent in Spanish, a bit rusty in Sign Language, and a wannabe francophile. My background as an entrepreneur is as diverse as can be - but I got my start in entrepreneurship after I studied Fashion Merchandising in college, and then partnered with top brands like Schick Quattro, Bloomingdales, Lacoste, SOHO Beach House, VOGA Wine, and more.
Today I primarily work as Digital Marketing Strategist, online influencer, and personal branding mentor. I am also a top earner in network marketing and lead a team of over 5,000+ women.
Starting Often Ambitious is beyond exciting for me because after nearly 10 years of being my own boss, I feel it's time to start sharing more about my successes and struggles. My hope is to leave an impact on any woman who craves something more from her life, but may not know where to start.
Hey sweet friend! So happy to meet you!
Over the last few years I've been hustling hard as a contract photographer. I've been helping some of the best of the best develop aesthetic branding though visual content creation. In the past year alone, some of my clientele have included Sadie Robertson, The A21 Campaign, Propel Women, Lysa Terkeurst, and Proverbs 31 Ministries.
It's been incredible journey bringing other people's visions to life, but in starting OA, this is my first step in bringing my own visions to life. I've learned so much being my own boss and I'm excited to share all of what I've learned on the platform of Often Ambitious. It hasn't always been an easy road, but my goal is to always remain an encourager and cheerleader for the next wave of women wanting to do the same.
When I'm not making moves, I enjoy traveling to awesome places, drinking coffee with my rockstar husband & rescuing neglected animals everywhere.
So happy you're here xo.
