I feel like at this point we’re online friends. And as my friends you guys know I LOVE A HUSTLER. In fact, lots of posts on The Skinny Confidential are geared towards hustlers ( remember this TBT post? ). I have massive respect for people who do their thing & do it well.

Anyway, I decided to share 5 hustlers who are killing the game right now. All of which happen to be my online friends too. Each of these sweet souls I met online ( OK, OK- besides Becca- I met her at my hair salon like 8 years ago, pre-Bachelor ). But the rest of my friends showcase here, I met through the Internet! read more

IT’S COOL TO BE KIND…& Some Words on Amanda Bynes

Uhhhh…UHHHHH!! What is wrong with the Internet sometimes?

That’s right, sometimes it’s so hard for me to keep my BIG ( big ), fat mouth shut. But you know that.

Here’s the situation: the other day I was aimlessly scrolling through Facebook & stumbled upon a post on Amanda Bynes.

( You know Amanda Bynes. She was most likely on your television screen circa 1999 starring boldly in The Amanda Show. Or maybe you recognize the name from She’s The Man or What a Girl Wants– kind of cult classics in the MID-ISH 2000’s. Or you may remember how she sort of went on a Twitter rampage after quitting acting ( ex. “I want @drake to murder my vagina.” – I thought she was being witty & I liked it. Seriously- I mean I feel like a lot of girls would like Drake to murder their VJ so it’s not too far off ). read more

Ok so I’ve talked about this a little bit but let’s really elaborate today.

Actually the idea of this post came to me because of THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL SECRET FACEBOOK GROUP.

…Which can we take a second to acknowledge because OMG IT IS SO FUN. It’s like being on a group text with all your friends. What I’m specifically obsessing about is there’s so much real talk. Like we go from talking about books to yeast infections to boobs to anxiety to home decor to…vibrators. It’s kind of a medley. Also there are no Judge Judy vibes in the group- everyone is very open-minded. The group is girls only ( sorry boys ). Although Michael has been peering over my shoulder whenever I’m engaging in the group. The other day I laughed out loud at something one of you said about sex & he was trying to snoop. I told him to butt out. LOL. read more

KEEPING SOCIAL MEDIA 1 | by the skinny confidential

The other day I was speaking at a conference & someone asked me about the importance of keeping all social media platforms consistent.

For some reason I immediately felt compelled to write a blog post about this specific topic.

BECAUSE MAN THIS IS OVERLOOKED.

Think of it like this: YOU ARE A HOUSE. Or a building- whatever you prefer here. Each room should be cohesive with the other rooms. I mean unless you are Disneyland where there’s a new brand behind every door, keep your shit consistent. No one wants a modern house with a Western guest room, cartoon bedroom, bright pink bathroom, rainbow themed kids room, & antique kitchen. read more

Today we’re kind of getting aggressive, business-wise.

Recently we were invited to be on Mike Cernovich’s Podcast ( who also happens to be one of my favorite podcasters ) to talk biz. Specifically: building a brand, business, & platform online.

Bit of a background on Cernovich so you can understand why Michael & I were VERY excited to go on the show. Firstly, Mike Cernovich is the author of Gorilla Mindset, which happens to be one of Michael’s favorite books ( you know this though if you’re in the monthly book club! ). It’s a book that has helped millions of people change how they think and feel through his mindset techniques. His podcast is the most popular mindset podcast in the world. His writing has been covered in the Washington Post, MSNBC, and many other outlets. He runs a popular website called Danger And Play too. read more
