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.

I haven’t consistently been to the gym in over a year. But quarantine fasho put a screeching halt to any physical alternative activities I could’ve been doing in the absence of the gym... like twerking in clubs. Dancing in streets at a block party. And other random stuff.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I gained at least 20 pounds. To some, I look normal. To me; this is the biggest I’ve ever been and I’m extremely unrecognizable to ME. I plan to change up my diet and eat way less meat (never going vegan tho), drinking more detox and energizer teas, and picking up the slack with the help of @jabsgym_em. But if y’all have any reccs for appetite suppressants - like really good ones - be a pal and comment them down below. I’m sure we could all use the tip as the world prepares to “shutdown” again 😉

Dating in Detroit sucks. It’s already difficult to meet new people because, where the hell are they? What circles do they run in? What restaurants do they like to eat at? And by chance if you happen to like the same things, will that person you plan to bag even be there the same time as you? Let’s not forget to add on also running the risk of being catfished in real life because this mask stays ON 😭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My dating journey this season hasn’t been pretty. It’s been pretty pitiful. That’s why I love that @bumble has made it super easy to date while safely socially distancing. There’s the video chat feature where you can go on your first virtual date and if you’re a woman you get to #makethefirstmove and start the conversation which I just love because it allows you to sort out the people you aren\'t interested in from the potential dating opportunities and we love to see that!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

If you’re ready to find out if you’re new date is quarantine material, #MakeTheFirstMove and download @bumble. #BumblePartner

Feeling good feeeels good. I think I’m on an up right now. My therapist likes to say I’m in transition to something new. Either way, these gallons of water are getting drank, I’m eating too good like everyday, and I’ll be back in the gym next month hopefully with @jabsgym_em.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
