I’m Angela Mastrogiacomo.
A 30-year old entrepreneur who is made up of equal parts peanut butter cup ice cream, veggie tacos, and lots of love for my family, loving partner, Jack, and my two dogs Sawyer and Bowie.
I’m kind of a mess. And I don’t mean that in the adorable “isn’t she cute with her mismatched socks and messy bun” kind of way. I mean, a proper mess of a person.
I’m the kind of person who frequently drops things and walks into chairs, and spills red wine on our couch (sorry, Jack). I’m someone whose mind is always racing with equal parts anxiety and excitement over new ideas. I am always thinking one step ahead—but I don’t always know where I’m going.
It took me a long time to get comfortable with that.
At the age of 20 I started my very first entrepreneurial journey with the launch of my music blog, Infectious Magazine. It was an incredible opportunity that allowed me my first entry into the industry that would become my home for the next 10 years.
At age 25 I started my boutique public relations company, Muddy Paw PR, working with emerging musicians to bring their stories to life through press opportunities. It was my dream job in so many ways, but before I knew it, I was a couple years in and totally burnt out.
Now, I’m 30 years old and I’m ready for a completely new chapter. I don’t know exactly what the future holds or where I’m going, but I know it’s going to be marvelous. Because for the first time in my life I’m stepping into who I’m meant to be and not making any apologies for it. I’m discovering who I am and who I want to be and I am going after it.
It’s scary, and the path to get there is a little unclear. But I’m a firm believer in following your gut and embracing all those moments that cause butterflies in your stomach and those excited nerves that mean you’re on the edge of something magnificent.
So thanks for being here, and thanks for being a part of my messy journey. I’m happy you’re here. :)
