Today we’d like to introduce you to April Flavio.
April, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started my blog about five years ago. At the time, I was going through a difficult time in my life and I was looking for something that would help me find myself again and spark a passion and joy within me. I started out simply writing about the lessens I had learned through my own journey in hopes to encourage at least one person along the way. Over the years, it has birthed into so much more. About a year ago, I decided to really take a step forward and make it more than just a hobby I occasional did. It truly has become my passion project! Through blogging, I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many incredible people and be a part of some really exciting things! There is always some thing new and interesting happening!
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The road has not always been smooth. I’ve certainly had my ups and downs with it. It has required a lot of work and continued dedication to keep moving forward. It’s so easy to get distracted by everyone else’s success or how everyone else is doing things that I can lose my own focus. The best advice I would give anyone starting out is to stay true to yourself! No one else is going to do it just like your doing it and that’s ok. We all have our own uniqueness and that’s exactly what will make you stand apart and what will draw others to you. And, during the moments you get discouraged and want to give up because those days will come, remind yourself why you started in the first place. Know your “why” and remind yourself of it daily!
what should we know about FlavioApril? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I’m a lifestyle blogger. I enjoy creating content that will encourage and inspire others to live the best version of themselves, to live the kind of life they were created for while mixing in a bit of fashion and beauty. I always strive for my blog to be a space where everyone can come and leave a little bit more encouraged.
I enjoy working with smaller brands and businesses because I feel like those are the ones that deserve the biggest shout out to. I know what it’s like building something from the ground up with little support and those are exactly the ones I want to support and stand alongside the most through this journey.
I feel most proud to have branded myself by my last name, Flavio. My last name and my heritage have always been so special to me which is exactly why I have chosen it as my blog name.
Who do you look up to? How have they inspired you?
There are so many incredible women in this industry. I feel so grateful to have made such good friends in the blogging world. They all inspire me daily. I love how each and every day they are putting countless hours into chasing their dreams. That’s what keeps me going and pushes me to never give up!
