You are worthy!
What does it takes to build a million fan following? Meet Claire Sulmers, Media Maven and Founder of Fashion Bomb Daily, one of the top 50 style blogs on the internet. Claire inspires us to own our self-worth knowing we deserve The Bomb Life we’ve always dreamed of!
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a fashion entrepreneur, Harvard graduate, Francophile, and an innovator. My goal is to change the fashion industry one blog post at a time.
What does being a woman in control mean to you?
A woman in control is a woman who knows her value and asserts herself when necessary. She is someone who is ok with saying, “No” and only does things she values and treasures.
What inspired you to chose your career and what continues to drive you?
I was inspired to start Fashion Bomb Daily because I yearned to see women of color in magazines and just wasn’t finding the representations we deserved. So I decided to create the change I wished to see in the world.
When did you realize that you wanted to create your own fashion blog and follow your passion?
I’ve always loved to write and have always loved to shop. I discovered my love of and talent for writing during an internship at Upscale magazine. I attempted to pursue fashion in the traditional way for years, but when I was met with resistance, I decided to start a blog.
How does the Bomb Life and being a Woman in Control go hand-in-hand?
The Bomb Life is about living life on your terms. Going for your goals no matter what stands in your way. Not accepting the life others see for you, but controlling your own life story and your own path.
What has helped you throughout the years to take control of your life and the challenges that come along doing what you love?
I think understanding your value is key. People will set their sights lower than yours or tell you what you can and can’t do. I think it’s always important to have confidence and also to know that you are worthy of receiving everything you want out of life.
If you could say one thing to a young girl encouraging her to be a woman in control, what would you say?
Set goals, dream big, reach for the stars. Know yourself and know your worth.
