MALLORY WHITFIELD “ Don’t get caught up in other people’s hype. Being a creative entrepreneur is as much about carving out a life on your own terms as it is about making money. Listen to your inner voice and let it guide you. Whether you’re working for yourself full-time or side-hustling, making millions of dollars or mindfully making less in order to live more simply, the thing that matters most is being true to yourself. ” Mallory Whitfield has been blogging since 2006 at MissMalaprop.com. Throughout her journey as a creative entrepreneur, Mallory has worn many hats, including blogger, visual artist, upcycled clothing creator, performance artist, jewelry designer, craft show vendor, creative strategist, speaker, teacher and consultant to other small business owners. Her book, How to Make Money at Craft Shows, is available on Amazon. By day, she specializes in SEO, social media, and content marketing as Content Analyst at FSC Interactive, a leading digital marketing agency in New Orleans. missmalaprop. com     26
