6/14/2019

Sales. That amazing, beautiful, exciting word that connects us to our customers and makes us money. What? You don’t think of it that way? Hmm… Lemme guess.

We all know how important Instagram is for our businesses, right? It’s a place to build genuine connections, find potential clients and show them who we really are. But it has a dark side, my friends. We all know our own habits--we pick up our phones to scroll through Instagram when we’re in line at the grocery store, in the doctor’s office, even on the toilet for goodness sake (don’t lie, you’ve done it!). So how do we use Instagram for our businesses but not get sucked into the IG vortex?...

Like you, I get frustrated with my schedule. I’m always “busy,” I don’t have enough time, and there is so much more to do. But can I tell you a secret, friend? Nothing is in your iCal or planner that you didn’t put there. Often, we fall victim to our to-do list, claiming that we don’t know how it got this way. It’s like a train driving full force and we can’t stop it. But you can. The answer is saying NO. That’s what we’re chatting about today, my friend... Along with setting boundaries...

We spent $100 to be sold to. Yep. Me and Addison bought tickets for the National Achievers Congress in Nashville, TN from May 2-3, 2019 and literally all they did was sell to us from the stage. Along with 1,000 other entrepreneurs who took 2 days off work, the #NACTour is the biggest scam to hit Nashville. Share this post post to warn your friends!

I'm sure you've heard us mention it before, but Addison and I are both musicians! I have been playing the violin since I was 6 years old and he picked up the guitar at age 10. Since we both graduated with music degrees, we love the Intro and Outro Music topic. Honestly, there are really only two options for you to get music for your podcast or YouTube channel: to have it custom-composed, or to use royalty-free options. Let's talk about the pros and cons of each! WANT YOUR PODCAST INTRO...

I think there are two different goals you can have, especially in your 20’s: profitability or popularity. I am not trying to sway you one way or the other on this subject, but I am here to be your guide and teach you that there are two different goals and they do not, by default, go hand in hand.

Episode 43: How To Create A Schedule As A Freelancer

3/15/2019
More
When I graduated college, I was SO excited to live the freelancing life. I loved the idea of rejecting the 9-5 world that so many live in, creating my own schedule and taking ownership or my life. It may sound dramatic, but it was only a few short months ago that having a structured schedule sounded like JAIL to me--and I would do just about anything to avoid it… But there were consequences to that. I said “yes” to EVERYthing that someone asked me to do--justifying it every step of the way...

Every Thursday morning, I go live on Instagram to answer my followers’ questions and go live with those who wish to speak with me rather than type. It’s one of my favorite parts of the week and today was no different. I received an interesting question from Ellie, who asked how I can be so casual yet so professional while I’m on Instagram stories and live video. Ellie’s question really got me thinking about how there’s so many people who treat Instagram different than reality. But I’m going...
