One of the passages that stuck with me from Amy Poehler’s book was when she talks about her friendship with Tina Fey. She wrote that she’s often mistaken for Tina and asked to do Tina’s famous Sarah Palin impression. My first thought was, how annoying! They don’t even look alike! But Amy’s attitude really caught me by surprise. She wrote that she’s always flattered to be compared to Tina because 1) she’s her friend and 2) she happens to be killing it. If that’s not girl power, I don’t know what is.
I’m lucky to have more than a few girlfriends who are just killing it right now (even if no one’s getting us mixed up or asking us to do impressions). One of them is Katie Kime, a designer in Austin, Texas, who pretty much does it all: clothing, decor, furniture, interiors, textiles, and more. I got to meet her on our trip to Austin last April and was blown away at her dreamy little studio and all the big dreams she has for her business. Seriously, look at some of the things she’s added to her collection recently:
So fun, right? She has the best eye and I so admire her whimsical sense of style. I think it’s so important to surround yourself with women who inspire you and getting to meet some of those women in person has always been one of the best parts of blogging and social media. Interested in a few other female entrepreneurs who are killing it right now? Check out Anna Spiro, Katie Armour’s Buddy Editions, and Sara Kate Studios. And let me know who inspires you in the comments!
