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.

After years of searching for my place, High Fives + Good Vibes was born. I used to keep my business and family life separate, and it held me back from so many things and caused me a ton of stress! That’s when I made the decision to bring my kids along on this journey and create High Fives + Good Vibes for the entire family.

Along the way, I’ve come to realize that the inspiration, kindness, and positive attitude I aim to cultivate shouldn’t be limited to inspiring fellow female business owners alone; it should extend to all women, even mothers.

So, not only will I continue to teach fellow female entrepreneurs about branding, social media, and websites, but I also want to help mothers connect with their children through astrology, fostering creativity together, and finding joy in every single day.

I won’t deny that it’s not always easy—trust me, it can be tough. That’s why I believe in creating a space where we can openly express our frustrations and insecurities without hesitation.

 

Welcome to our journey!

I hope you can be inspired to make positive changes during your own journey in 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 mission is to empower female entrepreneurs with the tools and strategies they need to confidently grow their brands online. Together, we’ll dive into actionable social media strategies that will make a real impact!

But that’s not all! I’m also passionate about sharing the wonders of astrology with fellow moms—whether they’re entrepreneurs or not. Understanding ourselves, our kids, and how we all interact through the magic of astrology brings a sense of peace and clarity. Let me tell you, discovering more about my own kids’ signs and how they interact has been an absolute 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

Growing up, I had this constant battle of whether or not to express my true self. Not everyone was a fan of my happy-go-lucky attitude, so I toned it down to blend in and avoid being seen as a ‘nuisance.’ I wondered if people would accept me or what might happen if I made a mistake. It was a cycle of doubts. But through various experiences, I came to a realization: the more I embraced my authentic self, the more people appreciated and gravitated towards me. 

It has taken a lot of work over the years but now I wholeheartedly embrace every single part of myself, using it as my superpower. I won’t shy away from my positivity and ‘can-do’ attitude just because it might make a few insecure people uncomfortable. That’s why High Fives + Good Vibes is my way of expressing all my experiences and proudly owning who I am—the negatives and positives alike—because they’ve all shaped me into the person I am today.

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