Lifestyle blog

My blogging journey...

I began blogging about healthy living at Living Healthy in the Real World in February 2008. Over the years, my interests expanded, and I added two more blogs to the Living in the Real World brand: a communications blog at Living Rhetorically in the Real World, and a style and beauty blog at Living Fashionably in the Real World.

The Living in the Real World brand was, at its core, about how we can apply ideas and habits in ways that fit each of our individual lifestyles.

Seven years after my first foray into the blogging world, I rebranded Living in the Real World to a lifestyle blog at SaganMorrow.com. I blogged about writing and small business, food and fitness, style and beauty, and health and wellness.

Then, in August 2016, I rebranded once again to make SaganMorrow.com what it is today: a small business blog specifically for other solopreneurs who want to attain work-life balance and build the home-based businesses of their dreams.

You can view the archives of my lifestyle blog posts at LivingInTheRealWorld.net.

A little background about me…

I'm a 29-year-old home-based small business owner. I work as a small business strategist and blogger, teaching solopreneurs how to succeed in business through actionable strategies.

In 2010 I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Rhetoric, Writing, and Communication (basically I spent several years analyzing ads and learning about communication theory and it was amazing---I essentially have a degree in critical thinking), and in 2012 I received my diploma as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist (just because!).

I spent eight years as a freelance writer, editor, and social media manager (including a couple years in public relations and several years in fundraising/project management at a local charity) before I began to teach other solopreneurs how to succeed in business. Since February 2016, I published my first book, launched several e-courses, and started a small business podcast. In April 2017, I partnered with my podcast co-host to start a brand-new communications agency, Juxta Communications, which launches in autumn 2017.

Currently, I live in downtown Winnipeg, Canada in an open-concept condo with my common-law husband, Mr. Science. He's a little camera shy and likes his privacy, so I don't share TOO many details about him here on the blog 😉

Some of my favorite things include dancing (I love the waltz!), reading all kinds of books, exploring big cities, and enjoying robust dry red wines and freshly-brewed Americanos. I adore expensive lipstick and comfortable high heels, Parks & Recreation, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I am childless by choice and an intersectional feminist.

You can find me hanging out online at my favorite social media spots, or you can connect with me directly by emailing me at hello@saganmorrow.com. I’d love to chat!
