If you’d like to contact me with questions, suggestions, collaboration offers, or just want to say hello, please email me (keep reading for the email address).

If you’re a brand:

  • Please note that I do not allow guest posts, paid dofollow links, or undisclosed sponsorships. I will delete your email immediately if it falls under these categories.
  • I do not accept free product in exchange for promotion. You wouldn’t accept your salary in free products, so why should I? (Unless it’s a lifetime supply of dark chocolate, at least 70% cacao and Fair Trade – you’ve got a deal.) When contacting me about a potential collab, please share your budget and desired deliverables.
  • All that said, I’m able to accommodate legitimate collab requests for my blog, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube. Please feel free to contact me if you want to work together in a mutually beneficial way.

If you’re a regular person or entrepreneur looking for advice:

Hi, hello, greetings! Sorry you had to scroll through that. I’m promise I’m much friendlier if you’re not a sketchy brand, and I am open to chatting with you about my blog posts and experiences.

Just please ask yourself whether you’re asking me to perform free labor/research. I provide many free resources on my blog already, so I have a consulting fee of $120/hour for any extra labor requested. You can schedule a consulting call with me on my Calendly. You can also book me for speaking or workshops; my fee will vary depending on the event.

I also am unfortunately unable to participate in school projects, as I get daily requests to be interviewed for those, and I wouldn’t have time for my own projects if I were to agree to all of those requests.

Thank you for understanding and respecting my boundaries! You are welcome to cite these posts as a source if needed; my full name is Lily Fang.

My email is lily [at] imperfectidealist [dot] com.
