Hey you! I’m Kachet...
and before we go any further, let’s make sure you’re saying my name right!
It’s pronounced /kaˈSHā/.
It’s a soft sound, like cash. The t is silent. 🙂
I’m a Dallas, Texas blogger, content creator, creative community organizer, and marketing consultant with a passion for inspiring others to live their best lives and pursue their dreams, no matter how big or small. I believe in embracing the unexpected and giving convention the middle finger.
How it All Began
” My goal with The Lipstick Giraffe is to inspire others to look within themselves and find something that they think is special and worth sharing.” – From my first blog post.
That’s how it began, and that’s still the goal with every piece of content.
I started blogging as The Lipstick Giraffe in 2012. The blog was my creative outlet and a way to connect with others when I returned to my hometown and nabbed my first job after college. Back then, I was all about sharing my personal style and my economized life. Living on my own at 24 with the realities of adulthood pushed me to get creative with how I dressed and how I lived! I wanted my readers to believe that they could still live fabulously no matter what that number in the bank account looked like!
Before I was all in as an entrepreneur, I worked for ad agencies and in-house on brand marketing teams. I thought it was what I was supposed to do since it’s what I did immediately after graduating from college, but a layoff five years ago made me really evaluate the direction I was going. It also made me pause – and really look at my creative side hustle and its potential to grow into something greater! I harnessed the skills learned after years of working on award-winning teams and launched my social media + marketing consulting business, Kachet Media Group.
I relaunched my blog as The Kachet Life in October 2017. You can read all about why in this post. The name of the blog might be a little more mature, but I’m still the same lady. I’m starting to feel like the OG blogger on the block…but I’m damn proud of it. 🙂 I love sharing what I know – so much so, that I coach other bloggers and influencers, as well as creative entrepreneurs.
Kachet Media work keeps me busy, too. I really strive to become my client’s friend, and understand their needs and wishes while being the firm voice in guiding their brand activity. When they win, WE win.
When I’m Not Hustlin…
When I’m not behind the screen or on a plane, I’m networking with other creatives, enjoying a glass of sparkling wine, cooking up a storm, watching the latest episode of Chopped – or any combination of the previously mentioned. 🙂
