I’m Charlie G. A full-time Lifestyle Blogger, Influencer, Influencer Coach, and Photographer. I’m a builder. I build beautiful things from scratch. I enjoy creating beautiful content whether it be for myself, a brand, or others looking to build their portfolios. I’m also an educator who teaches others looking to transition out of their 9-5s into full-time entrepreneurship. I’ve done a series of workshops that provide the skillsets needed to actively pursue your passions full-time from my Blogger Branding Bootcamps to Beginner Photography Workshops. Whether it be in person, via Skype, or with my online e-courses, I love helping people take their goals to the next level.

Want a consultation to see where you stand to take your brand to the next level?

Services

Blogger / Influencer

After blogging for 10+ years and being a full-time blogger for over one, I’ve gained experience working with brands I genuinely believe in such as Detroit Institute of ArtsPure Michigan, Grey Goose, and more! If you’re interested in collaborating with me for brand campaigns or sponsoring any Charlie G. content, please feel free to contact me directly below.

E-Courses / Coaching Services

From learning the basics of a DSLR camera to understanding and knowing business basics, I specialize in helping others be the best entrepreneurs they can be with my in-depth online e-courses you can learn on personal time and an extensive one-on-one coaching service for those looking to jump in full throttle.

Photography

Capturing beautiful imagery of others is something I excel in. Because of my natural ability to capture imagery for myself while working with plentiful brands, I’ve been able to understand how to do the same for others as a travel photographer with lifestyle, headshot, portfolio photography and more.

Alright so boom. I gained a lot of weight thanks to the “#covid16” and I absolutely refuse to head into 2021 not looking like nor feeling like myself. To aid me in my weight loss journey, I’m teaming up with @drinkBODYARMOR LYTE which you can purchase from @walmart! I rock with them because there’s no artificial sweeteners, no sugar added, low calories, and has antioxidants which is all and then some what I need right to kick my bad eating habits.

When you buy $20 of any BODYARMOR product at Walmart, you can get a $10 Walmart eGift Card! Go cop your BODYARMOR LYTE now and get to work! #ad #commit2fit

Shoutout to all the small businesses whom have been fortunate enough to remain open during unpredictable times. I feel like as a community, it’s our job to do our best to support one another if we’re able. Which is why this winter, I’m headed downtown to support dope businesses like @dose.collective, @formervintage, and @krispyaddicts just in time for the holiday season. If you’re looking for things to safely do and go to, head downtown and check out those dope stores.

 

@dose.collective for collection of different brands that range in variety. @krispyaddicts if you’re looking for dope quality casual clothing and @formervintage if you’re into vintage, nostalgic, street wear - not to mention the store’s aesthetic alone is a whole vibe for me. Head downtown this winter and safely enjoy the city with Decked Out Detroit. See you there wink with my mask on 😉 #ad @bedrockdetroit

I choose to get my flu shot because not only does it help protect me against the flu, but it helps me protect others as well. #ad It’s important to get the flu shot because if you were to contract the virus, it stops with YOU. If you don’t, you become a carrier spreading it along to others, especially those who have compromised immune systems. I choose to protect my older, ill mother and close friends who can’t get the flu shot themselves by protecting myself. And you should too.

I wrote a blog post with tons of details explaining why all Michiganders should get their flu shot this season! Click the link in my bio for the quick read! I hope you learn a thing or two about the flu shot and I hope you schedule your flu shot appointment today! #GotMIVax #iVaccinate @michiganhhs
