We want YOU to believe in yourself. We want YOU to feel empowered. We want YOU to succeed.
We are two sisters with a business background and started blogging for fun over 5 years ago. Our passions helped us create a full time business from blogging and run a top to bottom e-commerce website! 5 years ago we started T&J Designs, a clothing and accessories brand and online destination that quickly grew into a 6-figure business. We’ve learned a ton and are excited to share what we’ve learned in the industry with YOU. Everything we share, we have implemented, and we have tested and have found success in! There were lots of failures and tests, but without them we wouldn’t have these guides to give you a better head start. We love sharing (as seen on social media everyday) and developed these guides to help you succeed and give you only the most valuable advice for your blog or business. To learn, to implement, to grow, and then to learn some more is how we have found success.
We will be updating our site as often as we can, as the marketplace is an ever changing! Don’t forget to sign up for updates and freebies.
WHY DID WE LAUNCH THE GAL GUIDES?
As bloggers, social media mavens, and business owners, we are constantly getting questions about blogging and running our own online business. And now, after running our business for 5+ years, we felt experienced and knowledgeable in sharing the tips and guides in maneuvering you through the world of fashion blogging and running a fashion business.
Tiffany and Jen both have blogs and instagram accounts with over 100k followers and readers, that are engaged and loyal to us and have been instrumental to the growth of our brand. Our business, T&J Designs, has achieved 6-7 figure annual sales and in 2016 they were accepted into one of Silicon Valley’s most prestigious accelerator funds. Our experience in the online world and our numbers showcase our success, so you can trust that we’ve done exactly what we are sharing!
We decided to do guides instead of a full book or course because we felt like a lot of women were like us where we are social media or business savvy in some ways but totally lost in others. We want you to have the ability to pick and choose which topics you want to learn about instead of having a book where you find a few chapters to be valuable and then end up skipping entire chapters of information that you already understand. We want you to be able to personalize your own growth and experience by picking and choosing what’s most important to you!
Hello! I’m the oldest of the two of us (we get asked often) but Tiffany and I are close in age. I’m so excited about this venture and in teaching others all that we’ve learned in running our own blogs, social media and business. I have a business background and started my career in fashion over ten years ago. My love of fashion, merchandising, and being a girl boss showcases daily on my instagram. And in my daily life I also juggle being a mom to adorable two boys!
I’m not a balanced person (trying), I love a good glass of wine and lots of food, and traveling is my happy place! Excited to have you here and if you love fashion, you can also follow me here.
Welcome to Gal Guides! I’m so excited that you are here. My sister and I are so passionate about entrepreneurship and helping other women achieve their dreams. I started my fashion blog back in 2008 as a creative outlet, never thinking I’d ever make money from it (back then, making money blogging wasn’t even a thing!) but as my blog and the industry grew, I managed to create an income from my blog. A few years later, my sister and I joined together to create a full time 6 figure business that has steadily grown because of social media and blogging! Even though I blog part time, I’m still able to generate a 5 figure annual income from it and I’m here to share with you that – Yes, even with a full time job or running your own business, you can do it too!
I live in Seattle with my husband and our darling little girl. I work a lot but I enjoy what I do so most of the time, it never feels like work. Would love for you to join me over on my blog and instagram where I share pics of my style and shopping finds!
