Welcome welcome! I’m Danielle, most people call me Dani. I’m a twenty-something East Coast transplant to the Midwest. I grew up in Virginia and Maryland, and moved to Kansas City in 2014 for work. I’m now settled in on the Kansas side and absolutely love it here.

I am married to an amazing man named Jake. He is a small business owner and is incredibly supportive of all things I do. We both love to rock climb, which is how we met. We got engaged on Christmas Eve, you can read the full story here.

We have two adorable fur babies named Oliver and Finnigan (Finn). Oliver is a Mini Australian Shepherd and Finn is a Toy Australian Shepherd and I’m sure you’ll see them sneak into my pictures from time to time.

I make my relationship with God a big priority in my life and aim to live the way I believe He would want me to. This is also a big reason why I’m a fan of modernly modest clothing!

I think modesty means different things to different people, and my personal definition is just to keep the important things covered for my own comfort and dress like a lady.

My blog is one of my favorite things in the world, and I strive to be as authentic as possible. I only share things I actually use and love, and recommend to others.

If you’re a blogger or entrepreneur, too, please come join my Facebook Group! I love and value every single person that takes this journey with me. And my dream as a blogger is to help other people that are in the shoes that I’ve been in to get their blog off the ground and grow it quickly. I understand how overwhelming it is to not only get your site started but to also grow it and gain traction.

I created Grow Your Influence as a way to get you started on the right foot, and I am a firm believer that helping others doesn’t hurt you at all, but instead lets you grow in new ways. It’s not a competition. It’s about supporting each other and lifting one another up!

I also developed an e-course to help bloggers like myself Grow their Influence across all of the main platforms. You can learn more about that course here.

You can email me at thompsondanir@gmail.com should you have questions about anything, or just wanna chat and say hi. Make sure to follow all of the social media pages and subscribe to the email list to get freebies and special discounts to my e-courses!
