Words of Wisdom

It pays to pay attention to trends! Whenever there's something a lot of people are interested in, there’s probably a way to make money from it. Gabby jumped on Pinterest (here's her Pinterest page!) in the early days and never looked back.

Fun Fact

In addition to being a Pinterest master with over 1.4 million followers, Gabby is also a sales rep, photographer, yoga teacher, and a mom. With such a busy schedule, any new hustle would need to be relatively easy to start. Making money from brand campaigns on Pinterest was the perfect option for her.
