In 2011, bloggers Danielle Moss and Alaina Kaczmarski teamed up to launch a website with a budget of less than $6k. Since then, The Everygirl has become a household name and the ultimate online resource for creative, career-driven women with more than 1 million unique visitors each month and 660k+ Instagram followers. Just a few months after launching, The Everygirl was named by Forbes as one of the “Top 10 websites for Millennial Women” and as one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women.”

In this episode, Danielle explains how she got started and the steps she took to launch The Everygirl. She also shares her number one tip for taking great Instagram photos (bonus: you don’t need to be a professional photographer!) and her go-to apps, filters and editing tricks to make photos look their best. Danielle and Monica also discuss how to delegate as you grow and why sometimes you just need to throw ideas to the wall and see what sticks.
