"Many bloggers say they can't believe how big they've gotten and are overwhelmed by the requests and perks of being world-recognized influencers. Success comes fast and quick in the world of fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogging."

3 Don't Quit

"It's easy to give up. Especially if you're not growing quickly enough, or making money. Sometimes it takes a few months to make enough to become a full time blogger, sometimes it takes a few years, sometimes it never happens. Of the millions of fashion bloggers out there, only a few hundred ever get to go full-time.

Dedication is the only thing those at the top of the heap have in common."

2 Develop Your Character
