    3 Ways to Grow Your Tiny Business

    3 Ways to Grow Your Tiny Business
    Posted on
    1.) Expose more. Calls to Action are necessary for you to make sales. Period. There is no way around it. Email campaigns, Instagram posts & stories, FB ads. No call to action means no one buys. I am learning that marketing isn't about the what but about the how. How are people going to use it? Love it? How is it going to make them feel? How will they feel when they have it in their hands? Think of the how and then deliver it to them via marketing!

    The Perfect Road Trip Companion

    The Perfect Road Trip Companion
    Posted on

    It's my belief that you get to know someone best when you road trip with them. There is no hiding when you travel together. You gotta manage yourself, your hygiene and your attitude. What I find? Some people are better at it than others. 

    There are some people who are suited for luxury travel. High-end hotels, massages, fine dining and dressing up to go out. Those trips are wonderful and fun in their own way. But to be honest; it's easy to travel that way! The nitty-gritty comes out on a road trip. Things go wrong 99% of the time, there are inconveniences and bad nights rest. Being resilient and adaptable are important. And not being one that has to have things a "certain way".

    Top 5 Social Media Accounts 2020
    Posted on
    Social media is something I have a love|hate relationship with. I recognize it's value. I understand it has deep importance. I also know it is often a highlight reel and it can be full of complete and utter bullshit. It can overwhelm us and I 100% believe it causes depression in people. Stepping away from it from time to time; or even forever, is often necessary for us.

    Entrepreneur or Business Person?!

    Entrepreneur or Business Person?!
    Posted on

    Here are the top 3 things I have learned about what it means to run a business and what it means to be an entrepreneur/business person. 

    1.) There is a difference! A business person is someone who buys into a business, and does not start it from the ground up. These are the flippers. They busy something trendy and cheap and flip it for more money. A multiplier.

    Where as an entrepreneur builds something out of nothing or creates. They have a vision of creativity to build a business, a product and/or a brand. Kind of a business artist in a way. They are often deeply creative and innovative.

    Visualizing is a process I love. Getting to take inspiration from cultures, people, places and a whole lotta landscape. Colors from Mother Earth make it easy to want to replicate her into some art form. The mountains, valleys, rivers, hills and all her edges & curves in between.
