Starting your own fashion or lifestyle blog can be daunting and overwhelming sometimes. So can working solo, introducing yourself to strangers for networking, and trying to discuss some of the challenges you face to people who don’t always understand what you, how you do it, or why.

“Sometimes all it takes is having coffee with someone that understands your life & hustle to get you excited & inspired.” -Alyssa Melendez, The Haute Brunette

New York City-based fashion and lifestyle blogger Alyssa Melendez is the CEO of THB Marketing House, and she runs a successful blog called The Haute Brunette.

Her recent post, #Girlboss Tribe // Why You Need One, is relatable to every blogger, and is so inspirational for every woman who is trying to break through and do her thing, too. That’s why she’s this week’s Sunday Slayer. Alyssa has faced challenges head-on with enthusiasm, grace, and professionalism, and she is a role model and mentor for other emerging professionals in the business. There’s so much we can all learn from her.
