PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE CAREFULLY.

Thank you so much for accepting our invitation to be a featured soulful artisan and entrepreneur on our Fierce Woman, Graceful Living interview series! We can't wait to share you, your wisdom, and your story with our readers. 

Note: this interview is by invitation-only, so please honor our request to not share this page or the login information with anyone!

PURPOSE

Our desire for this series is two-fold: 1) to support soulful women artisans & entrepreneurs by giving them a platform and shining a light on their work, and 2) that this interview series becomes a rich and treasured resource for women who desire to start a business of their own or who need inspiration, encouragement & community as they grow.

HOW THIS WORKS

Your interview will be queued according to our editorial calendar. Once we have it scheduled and formatted, we will let you know the publication date. Rarely is it ever re-scheduled, but sometimes this does happen; in the event that your interview is re-scheduled for another date, we will make every effort to let you know. We reserve the right to use our discretion regarding publication and your submitted interview is not a guarantee that it will appear on AnnapurnaLiving.com.

Below you will find our interview questions. We have shared many questions, all designed to inspire and tantalize you! However, feel free to omit any questions that don't apply or don't inspire you—we ask that you respond to at least 50% of them. Please answer them conversationally, allowing your natural personality and style to flow. Share as much detail as you can. We want to create a vivid experience for our readers so they can have a fully-embodied image of you & your business along with the path that brought you to where you are today.

PHOTOS

Once you submit this form, please create an email right away for your photos and send it to hello@annapurnaliving.com with YOUR NAME HERE + INTERVIEW PHOTOS in the subject line. Due to the volume of emails we receive, we need both your interview and the photos as close together as possible. If your photos aren't ready, please wait to submit the interview. (Unfortunately, our system does not allow photos to be uploaded in this form at this time which is why we request them in a separate email.)

Annapurna Living holds discerning standards for the photography we feature. We love a rich aesthetic and encourage you to include a minimum of 3 photos (including a bio photo) and up to twelve or more images documenting your journey, your life, your products or your process. We reserve the right to include or not include the photos, and to choose among them what to feature on Annapurna Living.

Please review the following photo guidelines:

  • You must own the copyright or have written permission from the photographer to use the photos.
  • Photo must be high-quality (no blurry or distorted pixels) and re-sized for web up to 1500 pixels wide. If you aren't sure how to do this, please go to Picmonkey.com and upload & edit your image there. Choose the quality option best suited for the photo. Please endeavor to keep the file size well below 400KB without distorting it, and save as .JPG with an image title (i.e., something appropriate for the photo rather than “IMG56” or random numbers and letters).
  • Please, no text on the photos. Please contact us for any necessary exceptions and we will review on a case-by-case basis.
