Hi, I'm Molly!

I started this website because I had one little tip that I thought was genius--using clean, unused toilet seat covers as facial blotting tissues (which, I promptly forgot about, and didn't blog about until five months in). The next thing I knew, I had a domain name, and the blog had found a life of its own.

I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of this community; the 5 year anniversary party for the site drew 200+ readers to an event in downtown Manhattan and I truly believe Smart, Pretty & Awkward has the best readers on the Internet.

When I'm not writing or managing this site, I consult clients with their digital strategy, am building podcast creation site Messy Bun, and my first career advice book Reach Out came out with McGraw-Hill in fall 2017. I also love speaking about networking and building a community around your work.

You can follow me on social @MsMollyBeck on all platforms: TwitterLinkedInFacebookInstagram, and Pinterest, and my email is msmollybeck@gmail.com

Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you're here.



Important note about this blog: some of the links on this site are affiliate links, which means I get a percentage of the purchase price from the retailer if you click through and buy the item I recommended. I never link to items that I don't both own and love myself.
