style + work
Originally an attorney, Leah has established herself as a go-to stylist and mentor to other women looking to make a name for themselves in the fashion world. When she's not developing her personal brand, or styling her clients, or working with other hopeful fashionpreneurs, Leah is constantly working on her other responsibility - curating and editing content for InspireNStyle.com. She lives on social media (as many fashionpreneurs do), and she's very mindful of what's happening in the world of style. She's a fascinating businesswoman with amazing hair!
Leah likes pieces that make a strong style statement. She wears custom-made dresses to fashion events, but her daily working uniform is a high-waisted skirt with a belt, and a fun graphic print T-shirt. If she's not meeting with clients, Leah loves a dark wash jean for a more professional appearance. She is considerate of making a stylish first impression wherever she goes, a life lesson she learned from her mom.

On her wish list:
Leah begins her day with a morning devotional and workout and (when she's not traveling) enjoys a very short commute
into her home office.
Typical work routine:
Leah's workday always begins with content for Inspire N Style and social media posts. From there, her schedule varies by what appointments she has for her business. She could be meeting with styling clients, being a stylist for photo shoots, gathering information for her next story, speaking at her fashionpreneur events and end her day by attending multiple fashion events.
She keeps it simple with her calendar, a note pad and pen, and her iPad mini.

Leah mainly focuses on breathing and keeping calm.

to-do items to improve her personal business.
