🌟 Happy Saturday!! 🌟 I received this gorgeous mug as a little thank you gift from Joy @techpixies yesterday so I’m enjoying a hot coffee in it this morning following a muddy @parkrunuk in Abingdon. I have the joy of doing my online tax return this morning!! 🙌😀😬 Can’t wait to cross that one off the to-do list quite honestly. Anyone else been through the pain of this yet?? I suspect you have as I’m leaving it close to the wire. A joyous job for a Saturday? I think not! 😂 Also a warm welcome to any of my new followers, I’m Beth and I run Socially Oxford, helping businesses and charities with their social media marketing. My background is commercial business, largely with soft drinks giant Coca-Cola. I don’t miss corporate world though, I now work flexibly around local clients and love the freedom freelancing is giving me for my young children. I run budget friendly workshops for small business owners, I work ongoing with clients on their strategy, but most of all I love to train people how to use social effectively to drive brand awareness for their business. It’s free right? (Unless you’re doing paid, but that’s another post..) You’d be surprised how many people think they can teach themselves how to do it, and how obvious this is when you see it. I coach online @techpixies, jumping on live calls weekly to coach women through their modules, and last year I took 30 women through their face to face programme in Oxford. We had a ball! Right, that’s me done, I’m off to sort out my wares with HMRC - wish me luck!! 🤞 #thisisme #oxfordshirebusiness #indieoxford #freelancelifestyle #laptoplifestyle #onlinevisibility #socialmediatrainer #socialmediacoach #smallbusinessmarketing #smallbusinesslove #shemeansbusiness #intentionalbusiness #techpixies #techpixiesinstachallenge #instagramtrainer #abingdon #wantage #thame #bicester #wallingford #socialmediatraining #solopreneurlife #solopreneur #dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo #flexibleworking #

I am taking advantage of a quiet house this morning to review venue proposals for my client's upcoming retreat...this is one of my favorite steps of event planning! ⁣ ⁣ I love checking out the venues, seeing what they can offer and thinking of creative ways we can utilize their space and amenities for our guests! ⁣ ⁣ I'd love to hear when you attend an event what is one amenity you can't live without? Mine is a quiet place to steal a few quiet minutes like a private patio or pool area. ⁣It works wonders for me and I have found the guests love having an outside place to get some fresh air during breaks. ☕⁣ ☕⁣ ☕⁣ #SocialSaturday #SmallBusinessSaturday #saturdaywork #saturdaymorning #saturdaythoughts #eventplanner #eventpros #morning #work #weekend #freelancelife#remotework #freelancing #freelancers #orlandobusiness #solopreneurlife#freedombusiness #byoboss #planning2020 #todolist #smallbusinessowners #solopreneur#smallbusinesslife #creativeentrepreneur#mysmallbiz #smallbusinesslove #coffee #butfirstcoffee #femaleceos #smartbusiness

We all want to feel “special”, like a unique snowflake. But there are billions of people on earth. And if we’re talking about business, there are competitors all over the world, in virtually every industry or niche. Today, more than ever, your challenge as an entrepreneur is to discover how to differentiate yourself from everybody else. Because this is how you’ll connect with your OWN market and establish yourself as unique. That’s easy to say. But how can you do it? After all, you and I are online entrepreneurs, working from a lonely corner office at home. It feels overwhelming, I know. But what if I told you that today, being a solopreneur offers you a golden opportunity to establish yourself as an authority and engage with a large audience? I am going to show you what, in my experience, is the best way to stand out from the crowd. It involves telling your UNIQUE story. Nobody can compete with that. And when you attach to your story a powerful message, a purpose, then you take a step forward from the crowd and establish YOURSELF as a BRAND. How does that sound? Good. Let me show you how to do this.

Don't be fooled. - It's not work. - As humans, we have a tendency to be drawn to fun or easy. - As business owners, we easily fool ourselves by doing 'work'. - You know those tasks that look like work but really you're doing them because they're fun. - You've got a goal, you need to work on the next step to reach that goal and yet you're doing other 'work'. - Checking out a new feature of a tool you love, watching FB Live videos, doing basic admin. See where I'm going? - Mine is learning. I'm always learning and I have to be mindful that for me, learning is a 'perk' not something to help get to the next goal and I have to treat it like that. To others, it looks like work but to me, it's fun and I know I have other things more pressing. - Last night I dreamt I was chatting to @suzchadwick [#dreamstalker] and she was telling about how I should be taking this business venture, where you learn how to use different online tools and get paid to do so. Being paid to LEARN. - Literally dreaming about learning. - An enjoyment thing disguised as a work thing. - What are yours? Don't let them fool you...

Many people don’t know this, but my biggest motivation behind my work knowing that I'll be able to take my family on a fabulous vacation. It may sound silly, but the thought of being in a beautiful peaceful location with my boys. Watching them play in the ocean, while I relax on the beach is all the motivation I need to keep going on the hard days!

I’m not usually a TGIF girl, but January has been hitting me hard. Not in a bad way, but in an “I thought it would be a slow month” way. Looking forward to sleeping in and enjoying the weekend, whether that means a bit of work catch up or not. As an entrepreneur, how many of you actually take the weekends off? . . . #tgifriday #entrepreneurlife #doyourthing #solopreneurlife

How can solopreneurs handle and overcome challenges ? ⁠ ⁠ 1. Multitasking⁠ ⁠ --> Prioritize and plan the work before actually getting started.⁠ ⁠ 2. Finding a Business Niche⁠ ⁠ --> The target audience can always be expanded later, but it helps to have one direction to focus on.⁠ ⁠ 3. Work-Life Balance⁠ ⁠ --> Set up strict boundaries between working hours and time for yourself.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #solopreneur #solopreneurs #solopreneurlife #solopreneurship #byoboss#businesscoaching#herbusiness#businesscoach#workforyourself#entrepreneurlife#workwithcomfort#moneymindset

I crave more of this in my life. Beach. Peace. New Zealand life. It's on my doorstep, I live right near this, there a beach literally at the end of my road. My intention and commitment is to maintain connection with this space, not just in summer, but all through the year. Every day is a good day to slow down and connect with yourself via nature. CONSISTENCY is important, not just for your social media and marketing output. Consistent connection with self through nature is also crucial for your business and personal success. 🌿CONSISTENT CONTENT - we hear about it all the time 🤔Content - noise on social media vs ☝️Content - a state of peaceful happiness

Even though it doesn’t have to be, networking can be tough and a drain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But it is crucial for business growth! 💥 It’s no surprise that the most successful entrepreneurs have the largest professional networks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Establishing connections gives you access to invaluable knowledge others hold and brings quality referrals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your network can include other professionals in your industry or entrepreneurs in completely different fields, because you never know what you can learn from someone or what additional business they can bring you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤔 Where to start? – There are plenty of structured networking events you can attend. Search for events within your industry, gatherings for entrepreneurs, or even groups focused solely on female business-owners. And sometimes, networking is as simple as striking up a conversation with someone in a coffee shop who may prove to be a valuable acquaintance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌟Keep it light and engaging – Networking is about relationship building not closing a sale. Show your personality and passion. People are more likely to do business with those they genuinely like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👂🏻Listen and take notes – Don’t take over the conversation. Listen to others, ask thoughtful questions, and repeat their name (to make them feel at ease and for you to remember it!). After speaking with someone, jot down a few notes about them and what they do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🗣Follow up - Remember those notes you were supposed to take? They come in handy when following up with a new contact and sending them a memorable and personal email. Try to reach out to a contact within 48h of meeting them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Networking is only a chore if we decide it is! At the end of the day, it’s nothing more than a productive conversation with someone. Doesn’t sound so bad, does it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💬 Are you part of a networking group? I would love to hear more about your experience, comment below!

Building a brand it’s like creating a tiny little world with rules. There are essential rules, that are a big no-no to break; and rules that can bend a little bit. The more you follow the rules, the more consistent your brand. So, in other words, when your brand looks, acts and behaves the same way, under the same values, you have a consistent branding. * * * Considering design as a language, when your brand DOES NOT look, act and behave consistently then you create a confusing message and it could mean a big turn off to your audience. It is like using english to communicate and suddenly changing to german; for no reason. * * * If you are interested in learning how to start working towards a more consistent brand, check out my latest post. I also talk about some basic rules you can establish now! #brandstrategy #creativeentrepeneur #brandcoaching

💛🖤DO YOU HAVE A DREAM? 🖤💛⁠ ⁠ Do you have something that you think about in the middle of the night?⁠ ⁠ Do you catch yourself daydreaming about the same thing over and over again? ⁠ ⁠ Many people are taught from a young age to forget about their dreams and be realistic. But deep down inside of you that dream is still there. ⁠ ⁠ Maybe you want to change profession?⁠ Maybe you want to move abroad?⁠ Maybe you want to open a restaurant?⁠ ⁠ The type of dream doesn't matter. The fact is that if you have a dream that hasn't disappeared - GO AFTER IT! ⁠ ⁠ You can make anything come true, but first, you have to acknowledge your dreams and then actively work towards it. ⁠

If you’re a solopreneur, it’s time to breathe a sigh of relief because I have some news for you: You don’t have to be on every single platform. Spreading yourself too thin will make it harder to niche down and actively engage with your prospects. Before you start believing that listicle about the best social media platforms for business owners, it’s best to first reflect on these two questions: 1) What kind of business do you run? 🎇 Let’s say you’re a fitness coach. Since you’re a B2C company, advertising your services through short video workouts on IGTV will give viewers an insight into what they’ll most likely be investing in when they purchase your program. This approach won’t work for B2B social media marketing agencies. These businesses are more likely to attract company decision-makers by showing their expertise through LinkedIn articles and connecting with professionals on the platform. 2) Who are you targeting? 🎇 Do you have a clear idea of who your target customers are? If thinking about a whole group to target gets overwhelming, my advice is to visualize one person you’d be enthusiastic about selling to. Once you have an idea of who you’d like to reach out to, that’s when you’ll be able to pinpoint and narrow down where they are hanging out online. For starters, here’s a social media demographics cheat sheet you can use as a reference: 📌Facebook - 18 - 49 years old, mostly female 📌Instagram - 13 - 29 years old, mostly female 📌LinkedIn - 30 - 49 years old, mostly male 📌Twitter - 18 - 29 years old, mostly male 📌Youtube - 18 - 29 years old, mostly male 📌Pinterest - 30-49 years old, mostly female Most users across all platforms mentioned are living in urban areas with an average annual income of $75K (source: @pewresearch) So how many social media platforms should a business use? While there’s no specific answer, it all boils down to which sites will best help you in getting your message across. Being a jack of all trades may be well and good but at the end of the day, you’re a master of none. 🙃 Don't forget to save this for reference!

In business and in life, it doesn’t matter what you believe in so much as how believing in it makes you feel.⁣ ⁣ Nihilism, like spirituality, works for some people where others find it excruciating.⁣ ⁣ Selling Snuggies, likewise, works for some people where others wouldn’t dare.⁣ ⁣ It doesn’t matter what you choose to sell in your online business. It doesn’t even matter if anyone you know believes in your product or supports you!⁣ ⁣ All that matters, and all you should focus on, is how it makes you feel.⁣ ⁣ If it doesn’t excite and inspire you, motivating you to come back to it day after day, then it isn’t for you.⁣ ⁣ But if it lights you up, keeps you coming back for more, even if it scares the shit out of you, then it’s meant for you and you for it.⁣ ⁣ Old paradigms are dying.⁣ ⁣ What once was is now no more.⁣ ⁣ You no longer need to create a business that drains the life out of you.⁣ ⁣ You no longer need to work for scraps, nose to the grindstone, loathing Monday’s and wishing for more.⁣ ⁣ There’s ample abundance, prosperity, and potential to go around.⁣ ⁣ The question is: what makes you feel excited for the future? ⁣ ⁣ #truthbomb #reconstructingwonderland #solopreneur #spiritualentrepreneur #soulpreneur #igniteyourfire #calledtocreate #createandcultivate #creativebusinessowner #liveintentionally #lightworker #lifestylerevolution #lifestyledesign #liveyourtruth #livelifefully #buildyourempire #businessbydesign #businesscoachforwomen #bossbabes #bizcoach #workfromhome #writeon #wealthgains #savvybusinessowners #selflove #solopreneurlife #spiritualadvice #selflovejourney #makeitblissful

FRIDAY 🙌🏼⁠ ⁠ It's time to unwind and switch off. There is now an abundance of ways that people can reach you. Remember when you just had to chance it and try and catch someone on the landline? Those days are long gone. ⁠ ⁠ It's great to be busy and we really appreciate being busy however at the weekend we do not apologise for not answering those work e-mails, calls or DM's. It's time to relax and chill, spend time with our family, children and friends. Life is all about balance, and we find when we get that balance right it means that on a Monday we are fresh and ready to go go go. ⁠ ⁠ How does everyone else manage to switch off, or are you go go go 24/7?⁠ ⁠ Whichever way you work we hope you have a great weekend 🍑⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #socialmediamangerlife #contentcreation #socialmediacoach #wahmlife #mompreneurs #socialmediasucess #socialmediaspecialist #solopreneurlife #smm #womeninbiz #womeninbusiness #womensupportingwomen #womenempoweringwomen #businessowner #businesswomen #businesscoach #businesspassion #fridaymood #fridayfeeling #fridaythoughts #fridayreads #glasgow #glasgowbusiness #scottishbusiness #socialmediamanager #socialmediaexpert #uksmallbusiness #uksmallbiz #glasgowlife

They just googled me and hired me!

I’m currently knee deep in finalizing branding & websites for a few clients (eek!) and wanted to share a little #bts of the process. ⁣ ⁣ 📌 save this for later 📌⁣ ⁣ There are 5 things I think you need to focus on, to create a brand that helps you scale your income and your impact:⁣ ⁣ ⚡️ VALUES: What’s your why? What’s your purpose? Sometimes I feel more like a therapist than a designer when I work with clients, because I we have to dig into your goals, dreams & values before anything else. ⁣ ⁣ ⚡️ CONNECTION: No (wo)man is an island, and your brand isn’t either. Want to make sales? Want to raise your prices? Want clients ready to work with YOU? It starts with a deeper, soul level connection. ⁣ ⁣ ⚡️ STRATEGY: I love the visions, dreams & ideas. But just sitting back and *hoping* things happen, won’t work. You need to take aligned action, daily. I love mapping out personalized, specific strategies with each client to reach their big vision goals.⁣ ⁣ ⚡️ VISUALS: What most people think of as their brand. It’s the manifestation of your ideas, coming to life in a logo, colors, imagery, your website. It’s creating a cohesive story that represents everything you do for your clients, in a way that speaks to them on an emotional level. ⁣ ⁣ ⚡️ VOICE: You know when you read a caption and instantly feel like you found a new soul friend? Yep, that’s why your message is just as important as your visuals. Finding clarity here is pure magic.⁣ ⁣ Question: which of these core values are you focusing on right now? ⁣Tell me below! ⁣ p.s. swipe 👉🏻 to see all of the #bts that goes into actually creating concepts and designing a brand. Branding is an investment & this is why! It’s a deeeeep, thorough, collaborative process.

A hazard of working from home is the risk of NOT MOVING. Did you know you can get leg cramps from inactivity?? A cold plus a heavy workload this week has had me tethered to my desk and my smart watch yelling at me constantly. Feeling better today so I asked my husband on a lunch date and afterward requested a short stroll through this gorgeous winter wonderland Minnesota has gifted us. If it was 30° and picturesque all winter long I swear I wouldn’t complain.

5 THINGS I SERIOUSLY ADORE RIGHT NOW I thought it’d be fun to talk about something a little not-money related here and there. You know, so we’re friends! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So let’s talk things we’re loving right now share yours below 👇🏻 and give me some inspiration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🥤 Drinking a full mason jar of water first thing in the morning. Hi, I’m Ellen, and I can drink coffee till noon and then realize I’m dyyying of thirst and need water. So I’m getting out of that habit and instead downing a mason jar of water before I walk the pup and head to the gym, and now I’m way more likely to keep drinking water throughout the day (yay hydration!) instead of mainlining coffee. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📺 Rewatching @greysabc. My usual background show is Gilmore Girls and my boyfriend’s is Star Trek. I needed a change of pace and I’ve only seen Grey’s Anatomy once,-‘d I hardly remember it, so I started rewatching it around Christmas. Jack joined me a few seasons on, and now we watch it way too much, but it’s a fun show to talk about (so many relationship dynamics and medical mysteries) and it doesn’t require toooo much focus, so we can both do other things and not miss much if we want to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🐶 My silly baby pup is growing up. Ben is *almost* TWO and while he still looks (and often acts) like a playful puppy, he now comes inside when called and doesn’t try to run away when it’s time to go into his crate. He’s also the snuggliest bug in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍺 @qmixers ginger beer. Holy cow this stuff is SPICY and not too sweet and it’s the best. I drink it by itself because it’s that good, but let’s be honest, I usually add some vodka and lime. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🧘🏼‍♀️ @audible yoga. I’m attempting to work yoga back into my life more regularly, and I love that Audible has tons of options that are free for members. I do a 15-20 minute flow after my workouts or before bed at least once a week! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you loving right now? What are your weekend plans? Let me know!

🤯🤯🤯STRESSED OUT ABOUT INSTAGRAM NUMBERS? Read this!!! . . . . I've seen people get really stressed about their instagram engagement rates, and YES I used to be riiiight there. Algorithm changes, annnd higher saturation of people using the space means your work isn't seen as much means that numbers keep falling and falling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even just my 2.5 years being in business, and maybe only 1 year being more "serious" about it, I've seen big changes in numbers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But here's the thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instagram is free, you guys. It is a FREE space and way to reach out and connect with others, and show your work. And make connections and find real friends, and find real life clients that are totally your people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When you look at it like that, it really doesn't owe us anything!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And guess what also- - the Instgram empire is falling anyway! (g a s p !!!) . . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yep, it will be just like Facebook, Myspace, all of the older social media platforms, as it gets more and more saturated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So what to do!!?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👏🏽Makes the most of what you have, while you have it! . . . 👏🏽Branch out to other platforms!. . . . 👏🏽Make r e a l life connections here, not tricks to boost up your likes/comments/etc! . . . 👏🏽Don't depend on it too much, its a free and wonderful gift and tool that we have to use! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope this helps to change your mindset about stressing about instagram numbers and reach and engagement, to seeing it for what it is! - - A freeee and awesome way to get to connect with others! Woo hooo!!

Can I share a confession with you? I'm a wannabe traveler. I haven't been many places but I have a serious case of wanderlust.⁠⠀ ✈️⁠⠀ I'm not talking the "pull your kids out of school and travel the world for a year" kind of thing. I just want to see more and show my kids what's outside of our southern California bubble.⁠⠀ 🏠⁠⠀ We have good friends who spend a month of every summer in a foreign country with their kids. It sounds amazing.⁠⠀ 🌎⁠⠀ Talking to my best friend recently, I learned that I'm not alone. She too has the itch to get out a little, family in tow. It feels doable.⁠⠀ 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦⁠⠀ So that's part of why I choose to be an online entrepreneur over pursuing a corporate career. I want the freedom for our family to go and do and see this great big world.⁠⠀ 💻⁠⠀ Do you travel with your kids? Where's the coolest place you've been?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #goals #goalsetting #goalgetter #goalgettermindset #goaloriented #itsamarathonnotasprint #productivequarter #daringgreatly #cultivatewhatmatters #youvegotthis #smallbusinessesrock #smallbusinessgoals #solopreneurlife #creativeentrepreneurs #designalifeyoulove #madeformore #dontquityourdaydream #workingmoms #bossmomlife #workfromhomeonline #travelwanderlust #passporttoearth #travelwithkids #familytravel #travelkids #havefamilywilltravel

You learn nothing standing in place. This is the biggest mindset shift you can have because it takes you from inaction to action. And that’s the ONLY way to make progress. : Our brains trick us into thinking that if we have just a little bit more information then we’ll be in the perfect place to act and be as efficient as possible. THAT PLACE DOES NOT EXIST! : The only true way to learn (in business or anything actually worth achieving) is through first hand experience. : Whatever it is that you want to do, I can personally promise you that you WILL NOT achieve it sitting on your butt. It requires action, and the only way you’ll consistently take that action is if you tell yourself that ITS OKAY TO MAKE A MISTAKE. : No entrepreneur, athlete, entertainer, etc. has achieved perfection so don’t hold yourself to that impossible standard. : Build in a contingency plan for what happens if you make a mistake (because it will happen and that’s okay) and start taking action! : #lvlslife #greenvillestudios #black365 #growyourbusinessonline #solopreneurlife #solopreneurship #startupcoach #entrepreneurcoach #businesstips101 #creativebusinessowner #businessmentorship #businesshelp #creativeentrepreneurship #ownyourownbusiness #blackentrepreneurship #blackentrepreneursrock #blackbloggersclub #lifecoachingtips #takeactionnow #businessmotivation

This is the reality of working on your business from home. Multiple pages of notes on different ideas that I’m always trying to improve. Adobe, safari, and chrome all competing for my time as I switch around to create website content for clients. Half eaten peanut butter sandwich and cold coffee because I’m focused. Random pair of pants because I need to do laundry but I’m putting it off until later. It might seem like I’m all over the place. In fact, you’d probably think that I’m not getting much done but truthfully, I am fully committed to building my business in baby steps. I’ve seen first hand how scaling too quickly can cause holes in your business. Even if you’re profiting on the front end, you could be losing large chunks of it on the back end. So in the words of Scott Miller, I’m going to “own my mess” and do it really freaking well as I watch my business grow. #smallbusinesstips #smallbusinessowner #websitesforentrepreneurs #solopreneurs #solopreneurlife #femalebusinessowner #femalebusiness #femaleownedbusiness #femaleowned #femaleownedandoperated #womeninbusiness #leadersinheels #webdesignerlife #femalewebdesigner #digitalmarketinglife #digitalmarketingservices #digitalmarketingservices #risebusiness #risebusinessconference #risebusiness2019 #rachelhollis #starttodaybrand #starttodaynottomorrow #rachelhollisquotes #mrsrachelhollis #ashlynwrites #copywritingforcreatives #goaldiggerpodcast #jennakutcher

A new year starts out with such possibility, doesn't it? ⁠ ✨⁠ Sometimes I think the reason why people make new year's resolutions about going to the gym is because, duh, in that weird week between Christmas and New Year's we actually have time to go to the gym.⁠ 💪🏼⁠ I don't know much about resolutions, but I do know that a new year is an amazing time to set an intention for the months ahead.⁠ 📆⁠ In my recent workshops, and in goal setting with clients, I talk a lot about how 'The Purpose of a Goal is to Incentivize Aligned Behavior.' When we set an intention, a goal, make a resolution, whatever, what we are really doing is saying:⁠ 🙋⁠ "Hey, I want this thing. Who do I need to be? What do I need to do? How do I need to show up in my life/business to get there?"⁠ 🤷‍♀️⁠ That's actually pretty powerful stuff!⁠ 🔥⁠ So, don't lose that new year's magic. Don't stop dreaming about what's possible for you. If January has gone by in a blur (whooooosh!) try to grab some time over the next few weeks to set your intentions, and take ownership of what 2019 holds for YOU. 🌟⁠ ⁠ *⁠ *⁠ *⁠ *⁠ *⁠ #solopreneur #creativeentrepreneur #smallbiz #smallbizowner #smallbusinessowner #solopreneurs #entrepreneurs #smallbusiness #coaching #businesscoaching #lonelyentrepreneur #startupblues #mompreneurship #monownedbusiness #thelonelyentrepreneur #girlboss #socialimpactbusiness #solopreneurlife #solopreneurcoach #solopreneurship #solopreneursanity #solopreneurlifestyle #solopreneurlady #solopreneurmindset #solopreneurhelp #dewpointcomms #thrivingsolopreneur

Fridays are by far the best day of the week. In my household, we call it Family Movie Night. We just buy a lot of snacks and watch movies. The kids look forward to it every week. What are your Friday night plans/traditions? Does it include family, a night out with friends, or chilling by yourself? . . .

I'm headed to the frozen tundra of Cleveland, Ohio to meet up with this amazing woman -- my business coach, @Jen_lehner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who in their right mind goes to Cleveland in the middle of January??? This Texas girl is going to freeeezze!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But it's worth it because, as I have learned this past year working with Jen, it's so important to invest in yourself and in your business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hiring a business coach was the smartest move I made in 2019, and you better believe I plan to keep this magic going for 2020. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This photo was taken the last time we were together in person, which was in October on the sunny beaches of Charleston, South Carolina..... oh it was so warm there. LOL ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sun or snow... I'll do whatever it takes to build this thing called #lightbeamers.... this is my heart and passion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Uncovering new ways to build my business and make it stronger means I get to serve more women like you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌟More positive stories get out into the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌟More women show up to use their voice, and share their message. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌟More women take the lead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Building leaders who share their authentic self is what we are up to in 2020. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have this level of mentorship in your life/business? Send me a DM if you'd like to connect. I'd love to support you on your journey!

𝑭𝒐𝒓 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒍... 𝑻𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒊𝒔 𝒘𝒉𝒚 𝒚𝒐𝒖'𝒓𝒆 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒎𝒂𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒂𝒏𝒚 $$$⠀ ⠀ So you're struggling to sell out your services.⠀ ⠀ You're posting on social media and busting your butt to get your name out there, but you're hearing crickets!⠀ ⠀ You look around at all these freelancers who are talking about how they're booked out for months and you're like:⠀ ⠀ "How?? What am I doing wrong??"⠀ ⠀ The problem?⠀ ⠀ 𝒀𝑶𝑼'𝑹𝑬 𝑨 𝑮𝑬𝑵𝑬𝑹𝑨𝑳𝑰𝑺𝑻!⠀ ⠀ Now, before y'all start freaking out... let me clarify!⠀ ⠀ To be a generalist, you need two things:⠀ ⠀ ✅You need to serve anyone and everyone⠀ ✅You need to do every task possible⠀ ⠀ Basically, you offer a ton of services to anyone who will hire you! When you first get started in business, you're eager to help people and make money! That can often lead to us feeling like we should be offering a bunch of services to anyone who is willing to pay for them!⠀ ⠀ BUT... what does that lead to??⠀ ⠀ ❌Unclear messaging on your social, website, etc⠀ ❌Sh** clients who will drop you the second business gets slow⠀ ❌Little income because you're selling the task and not the transformation⠀ ❌A ton of time wasted on finding random clients that don't value your work⠀ ⠀ 𝑯𝑨𝑹𝑺𝑯... 𝑨𝑵𝑫 𝒀𝑬𝑻 𝑻𝑹𝑼𝑬!⠀ ⠀ Here's a quick fix:⠀ ⠀ 🛠Sit down and outline your target audience. If you need more than one chair for your target audience, it means you're talking to too many people... especially in the beginning⠀ 🛠Go all #mariekondo on your services. If it isn't specific and if it doesn't spark joy, thank it, and kick it to the curb⠀ 🛠Make a list of your dream clients who fit into your target audience criteria AND who could benefit from your services, and reach out to them!⠀ ⠀ Now you can speak to these specific people, their needs, and their pain points! Whereas before you were all like:⠀ ⠀ 𝑯𝑬𝒀! 𝑻𝑯𝑬𝑺𝑬 𝑨𝑹𝑬 𝑨𝑳𝑳 𝑴𝒀 𝑺𝑬𝑹𝑽𝑰𝑪𝑬𝑺, 𝑷𝑳𝑬𝑨𝑺𝑬 𝑪𝑶𝑴𝑬 𝑩𝑼𝒀 𝑻𝑯𝑬𝑴!! 𝑵𝑶 𝑷𝑹𝑬𝑺𝑺𝑼𝑹𝑬... 𝑩𝑼𝑻 𝑺𝑬𝑹𝑰𝑶𝑼𝑺𝑳𝒀, 𝑷𝑳𝑬𝑨𝑺𝑬 𝑩𝑼𝒀 𝑻𝑯𝑬𝑴⠀ ⠀ Drop a comment below to let me know the SPECIFIC services that you offer or want to offer! The more specific you are, the easier they will be to sell!

Oh hey there! For those who have been here a while, thanks for stickin’ around! And for the newbies, welcome to my little corner of the internet! I hope you learn a little something new about me today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are four facts you may not know about me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. My ultimate dream is to sell our house and all of our belongings and move into an RV so we can travel full time. Unfortunately, I'm outnumbered by 4 other people in my family who evidently don't think that sounds like a fun idea. 🤷🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. I have a tattoo. That one shocks everyone for some reason. That and when I share my favorite music genre is rap. 🙊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. My favorite movie of all time is Girls Just Want To Have Fun with Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt. I used to be a dancer and always dreamed of moving to Chicago to pursue that dream. I moved to Chicago but I guess I just wasn't "fly girl" material. Go figure. 💃🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. I went to school to be a dietician and then my last year of school (and after a 6-month internship at a hospital) decided I didn't like hospitals, or telling people how to eat, or science, or 1000 other things about that field. I'm pretty sure my parents are still mad at me about that one! It all worked out though. I found a job at a public relations firm that had a lot of high profile food campaigns (one involving a mustache made of milk) and my background in nutrition helped me get that job. Then I decided I loved marketing so much that I went to grad school and got an MS in Integrated Marketing Communications and graduated with high honors. The rest is history and just for the record, my parents are happy again, lol!👩🏻‍🎓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So there you have it. Anything surprise you? Sound just like you? Make you wonder why the heck you're following a rap loving, dietician school drop out? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t leave me hanging… share something so I get to know you better too!
