May 27, 2018 has been an exciting day for Nascar driver Kyle Busch and family! Today, he won the Coca Cola 600, which also happens to be his fourth race win of the season. I have been rooting for him this week, and so happy for this win! This week I had the honor of interviewing his talented and inspirational wife, Samantha Busch. She joined me to chat about everything fashion, lifestyle, how she and Kyle give back to those in need, and how families can save a bundle on their smartphone bill.
Please be sure to watch the video below to see my interview with Samantha Busch in its entirety. She dished on fashion, lifestyle, how she and Kyle are helping couples pay for IVF, and how you can get amazing mobile service at inexpensive prices. *I made sure to transcribe the interview, so you can read it as well.
Samantha Busch Talks Fashion & How Her Grandmother Inspired Her
Candie Anderson: I had a chance to check out your online boutique. It’s absolutely amazing! I love everything, especially the jumpsuits.
Samantha Busch: “Thank you. I’m definitely a jumpsuit girl!”
Candie Anderson: They are so cute! Did you always aspire to open your own boutique?
Samantha Busch: “I’ve always loved fashion, that’s just something I grew up with. It’s named after my grandmother who loved to shop, loved clothes; was always overdressed for every event. Her nickname was Murph, so that’s where Shop Murph comes from. I just knew that I wanted to have an affordable boutique because I hated when I would see celebrities wearing something to an event, and when you’d pull it up online they were thousands of dollars. And you’re like okay? Well, that’s silly. Everything’s in that $50 and under price point, sizes small to 3x. I just want it to be a store that everybody can find something and feel good about themselves in.”
Candie Anderson: I saw that you named it after your grandmother. I had a great relationship with my grandma too. I loved that you opened your boutique on what would have been her 91st birthday. She would have been so proud!
Samantha Busch: “I know she’s looking down smiling. She’s happy about it!”
Samantha Talks Lifestyle Blog and How She Finds Inspiration
Candie Anderson: Your lifestyle blog is absolutely amazing as well. I loved the Mother’s Day bouquet that you created. As a busy mom and business owner, how do you find inspiration?
Samantha Busch: “I just take inspiration from daily life. I knew that I wanted to do something special for my mom. I wanted it to be girly and glitzy and glam. We had hair and makeup and a special brunch outside. She loves flowers so I knew she’d get a kick out of seeing that.
A lot of times between what’s going on in our life or what fans are asking about on social media, it’s really how I developed my blog, pick out stuff for the store and kind of do everything.”
Samantha Busch Talks Kyle Busch Foundation & Bundle Of Joy
Candie Anderson: Can you tell us about the Kyle Busch Foundation and how we can all get involved?
Samantha Busch: “An extension of the Kyle Busch Foundation is our Bundle Of Joy Fund. That started in 2015 after we had our son Brexton through IVF. What a lot of people don’t realize is they know there’s the emotional struggle and the physical pain of the shots and everything through IVF, but there’s also a huge astronomical bill of over $20,000 attached with each round. Insurance doesn’t cover a lot of that, so Kyle and I felt like it was our mission to help local couples in Charlotte fund their IVF journey so that can have their miracle babies like we did.”
How Kyle and Samantha Busch Stay Connected On The Road
Candie Anderson: Your husband Kyle travels a lot for his job. How do you stay connected while he’s on the road?
Samantha Busch: “Well, this summer is especially busy. I’ve partnered up with Walmart Family Mobile to tell you guys about these affordable family plans that Kyle and I love. We can get two truly unlimited lines for under $75 a month which is great because you don’t have to worry about going over on data, what you’re streaming when you’re not hooked up to WIFI. That’s where I was really blowing it with other plans.
I’m super excited to work with them. If you do have a bigger family, you can get up to four lines at $24.88 additionally a month. They’re completely unlimited talk, text and data. When we’re traveling all around – whether I’m updating the race fans from the pit box, doing my online store from the road, finding activities for my son Brexton and finding dinners for Kyle and I – everything’s on my phone. It’s really great to have these affordable family plans. If you want to find out more, you can go to your local Walmart or you can check out MyFamilyMobile.com.”
How Samantha and Kyle Find A Work And Life Balance
Candie Anderson: How do you and Kyle find a work and life balance while raising your son?
Samantha Busch: “We’re always super busy and I think one important thing that we do is (especially on the road) when he’s done qualifying and practice we have just family time. We don’t worry about our to do list, we don’t worry about what’s coming tomorrow or even later in the day. We just really live in that moment and make memories with Brexton, whether we’re taking him hiking or we’re going to a kids museum or a bounce house. Whatever it is, our full focus is on him, and him having a good time.”
How You Can Find More Information
Candie Anderson: Do you have any additional tips or information that you’d like to share with us?
Samantha Busch: “I think this summer, just go out there and have lots of adventures with your family. It’s great to share them on social media like we do. If you’re really worried about your data, check out the Walmart Family Mobile. I think that it’s a great, affordable no contract family plan for a lot of families that they’ll really enjoy.”
