The Girls Entrepreneurs Expo 2016!

Hi guys!

Thanks again for reading. I am here to let you know about the amazing experience that I had speaking to some of the most impressive young female entrepreneurs that I have ever met! I was able to be invited as a media guest to speak to some of these young ladies at the Girls Entrepreneurs Expo 2016. Shout out to the owner of Skin So Sweet Cosmetics, one of the organizers who allowed me to go. Also, shoutout to Fresh Faces Partner, Melody Boykin, and her assistant who did a wonderful job at the expo as well. She was the one who got me invited in the first instance!

Although I could not possibly go one by one and explain in depth about the conversations that I had with them indivdiually, I can tell you a few encouraging things that I noticed with all of them. They were all very ambitious at very young ages. I had girls who were less than half my age who had already gotten such a great start on their businesses! Even teens who were barely in high school already budgeting expenses and making sales like real businesswomen! This was awesome to be in that environment. I could not help but commend them because I could only imagine where i would be now if I myself had started on my path at that young of an age!

I also noticed that they all began their businesses with a spark at heart. Sometimes, us adult entrepreneurs begin with the wrong frame of mind, doing things simply for the maximization of profit. Yet, that small tinge of innocence and saturated youth gave them the actual passion to start businesses that they are emotionally attached to! In the end, they are going to go further than ones who begin with money being their main goal. I am so grateful that I got a chance to speak with all of them.

I have left the links and contact info to some of their businesses down below! Please check them out and go support our youth!

About Me

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 20x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country a

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

The Search For "Mr. Right": 2 Years On Every App Taught Me This

  Over the last 2 years, I've been conducting what some could call a "social experiment." I have been single (by choice) for the better part of the last 2.5 years and had an epiphany a little over 2 years ago to give online dating services a shot! While it hasn't been the most miraculous experience, it has certainly been a valuable one! And, I strongly recommend that anyone who is looking to settle down with a life partner, give them a try! Maybe you don't need to sign up for almost every app known to man like I have LOL, but at least try the major ones. This blog is a detailed account of my findings as a young, sweet, successful woman with online dating.  For clarity, I've added the below chart for you to understand who I am and what I have to offer versus what I am seeking. This foundational knowledge is key to comprehending the results of my "experiment." I, as a 26 year old woman who is the CEO of a successful small business (
