About HF+GV

My name is Alyssa and it has become my passion to work with women who are striving to better themselves, their family, and their community through their own passions. My design and marketing tactics help passionate women build a stronger online identity and thus reach more of their target audience. Needless to say, I want to be your biz cheerleader!! 

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! 

I am passionate about so many things that this lovely little site has now become my hub for all things biz-related and positively punny.

High Fives + Good Vibes was created after years of trying to find my place. I always tried to keep business and family life separate and it held me back from a lot of things AND gave me tons of stress! So I decided to bring my kids aboard this journey with me in creating High Fives + Good Vibes for the whole family.

I have come to realize that all the inspiration, kindness, and “look on the brightside” attitude is not something I just want to inspire in other female business owners – but women in general, MOTHERS even.

Not only will I continue teaching fellow female entrepreneurs how to navigate branding, social media, and websites; but more than that, I want to help mothers connect with their kids through astrology, being creative together, and simply finding the joy in each and every day.

It is not always easy – that is for sure. So being able to speak our frustrations and insecurities is certainly not shied away from either.

 

Welcome to our journey! 

The HFGV Family

I hope you can be inspired to make positive changes in your own journey to finding your place.

Alyssa with Allyson and Alex Grey

An amazing opportunity to be part of the Visionary Art Course with Alex and Allyson Grey at the Omega Institute. A dream come true!! 

Books by the bedside. As you can see I have lots of interests! Now I am making a new tower in the new house. 🙂 

My Goals & Interests

First and foremost, my goal is to help female entrepreneurs confidently grow their brand online through actionable social media strategies.

Secondly, I want to share with other mothers (who may or may not be entrepreneurs) how astrology can help us understand ourselves, our kids and how we all interact together to bring some peace and clarity. Learning more about my own kids’ signs and how they interact has been a game changer!! 

Of course, I have a million and one other interests but below are some of the big ones. I would say they are all pretty even on the scale, but have to show some contrast lol. 

  • The Arts & Being Crafty
  • Astrology
  • Our Inner Workings
  • The Art of the High Five

My Background

I was shy and grew up not really knowing who I was – or I should say not knowing if I should express who I was. Would people accept me, what if I did something wrong, etc etc. Over many experiences, I realized the more I was myself, the more people seemed to appreciate it and draw closer to me. Of course, not everyone liked my happy go lucky attitude, which I diminished in order to not stand out or be a “nuisance”. 

Now, however, I am embracing ALLLLLLL of that and using that as my super power. I am not shying from my positivity and ‘can-do’ attitude because it makes a few insecure people uncomfortable. So High Fives + Good Vibes is my expression of all my experiences and being proud of who I am – the negative and the positive because they both make us who we are. 

Graduating from The Art Institute of Pittsburg – Online Division with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design. WooHoo!!!
