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.

Giving y’all one last opportunity to catch these e-courses before (in the words of @jbellzz_) the holy trinity of temptation is over 😂 
Working with brands requires strategy and tact. How are you going to approach them? What are you going to say to get them to respond to you? You got the connect. Now what you do you say in the email to get more than just free stuff? How do you get PAID and be paid your worth? 
How do you land brand partnerships that keep money in your pockets for at least half the year? What goes in your media kit? Do you even know what a media kit is and why it’s important? Do you know why you need to negotiate vs accepting whatever they offer? And what does net -60 even mean anyway? When will you be getting paid exactly? And what’s usage rights and why should that double what I charge?

All these questions and more are answered in the e-courses.

DM me the word “CYBER” right now and I’ll send you the exclusive link with code to get your e-courses today ONLY for up to 60% off, all in the name of Cyber Monday.

You have 12 hours and only 50 ppl can use this code before it expires
