Meet Kelly Cleland. Cleland shares her passions, the values she lives by, and how she built her successful brand!

Sam: Thank you for taking part! Would you share a little about yourself?
Kelly Cleland: Thank you for the opportunity to share a little bit about myself. I am a Disney lover, enjoy the outdoors, and addicted to laughing! I have four adorable dogs that I love to pieces!

Sam: What are the values you live by?
Kelly Cleland: I am a big believer in being authentic. I was raised with the attitude that being mad is a waste of time and live life to the fullest. I value honesty, time, loyalty, and being genuine. Being happy and kind are free! It is a privilege to have the ability to make somebody smile!

Sam: How did you build your brand?
Kelly Cleland: Over the years of traveling and networking, I have gained an incredible fan base. During quarantine this year, I partnered up with an organic soap company. I wanted a main location that my fans could purchase the soaps from, soon purchase my book, and buy a 2021 Kelly calendar so I decided to launch my own website. With these new adventures in the making, I created a logo and my brand was born.

Sam: Can you tell us about your upcoming book?
Kelly Cleland: Absolutely! My upcoming book is currently in its final phase of editing. I hope to self-publish my story on Amazon this year. It is a memoir based on a series of true events that happened in my life from October 2018 thru December 2019. I am eager to release it!

Sam: Do you have anything else coming up and where can people follow you?
Kelly Cleland: I am actively job hunting and anxiously waiting for my manuscript to get polished! People can follow me on Instagram @kellyacleland4.
