You know when you keep hearing someone’s name over and over again?

And then you discover the person is more kind, warm and impressive in real life than you could have hoped?

That’s how I feel about Grace Bonney, founder of the wildly popular Design*Sponge, the legendary design blog reaching over one million readers a day.

We’re all fans of Design*Sponge here at Team Forleo, and I could not be more thrilled to share this interview with you today. In this inspiring episode, you’ll learn:

  • How Grace started her business, when she decided to hire her team and when she finally knew Design*Sponge was a real business
  • The way she navigates the challenges of being the “boss” especially as a natural solo creator
  • Her refreshing perspective on blogger burnout and how she decides how and where to spend her time on social media
  • How Design*Sponge brings in revenue and how that landscape is shifting fast
  • Two brilliant pieces of advice for new bloggers just getting started

And of course, a lot more! In a certain respect, Grace and I are internet veterans so I think you’ll enjoy hearing this discussion about the evolution of living and creating online.

Now, Grace and I would love to hear from you.
