We had the good fortune of connecting with Samantha m Logan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Samantha m, why did you pursue a creative career?
I pursued an artistic career because it’s what has always called me! For a while I strayed away from art and found myself so unhappy with where I was in life. Once I started to pursue art and healing as a career path I began to become more confident. I still have days where I struggle with keeping my confidence, but I know I wouldn’t be as happy if I wasn’t doing art!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Although I still have much growth ahead of me, I have developed so much as a person which in turn has helped me develop my business. There’s nothing easy about running a business all on your own, but it is a rewarding feeling. I love being able to help others, to see their joy receiving their products, and even just the comments and reactions. I’ve learned to have better time management and balance. It’s easy to wear yourself out so it’s important to make sure you make time for yourself. You cannot make your business grow, let alone yourself, if you grind yourself into the ground! That is why I created Pampered Hippie. To help remind people to stop and take the time for themselves.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If I had a friend visiting, I would want to take them around to see live music, eat good food, and be around nature. I would look for local art pop ups or just pop up events in general, a really special thing we get to experience living in LA! There are so many good food places like Lettuce Feast, Donut Friend, and many more. Of course I would also recommend checking out Disneyland, but that’s a given 🙂

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are quite a few people that have had a big impact on where I am in life right now. I want to thank my friends that are family, especially Janeen, courtney, Adrian, Justina, Megan, and Suzy for always supporting me and keeping me going! My family that all comes to my pop ups to show support. Every time you visit it fills my heart with joy. Also for my long distance friends that have supported me in my journey and opened me up to the world of spirituality more. Along with my reiki teacher Jade, you have opened me up to the universe in ways I never experienced before. Also to all my amazing supporters that continuously show me support, you truly keep me going. I wouldn’t have Pampered Hippie if it weren’t for each and every one of you.
